Providing Professional And Cost-Effective Understanding Advice And Guidance
The Law Offices of Gary J. Silber is one of the most established in the East Bay area. With an office in Walnut Creek, California, I have helped many people through the sometimes difficult and confusing maze of family law matters without the high expenses associated with retaining a lawyer.
Many times all a family law Client needs is consultation and guidance. With the comprehensive and professional attention that I can provide with over 29 years of experience as an attorney with 7 of those years as a Superior Court Commissioner, I can expertly guide you through the entire process.
You Control The Process
As the Client, you control each portion of your matter. Legal costs and fees are limited to the time you direct me to spend on your matter. The high fees associated with litigation and Court appearances can be avoided. If it is necessary for you to appear in Court, you can feel confident at your Court appearance that you are fully and professionally prepared. My services can range from a simple 30 minute consultation all the way to assisting you in the preparation of your entire case including drafting and completing all Court forms and documents, filing papers, and advice on the intricacies of the law, the consequences and implications to you, and, if necessary, preparation for a hearing or trial.
You are assured that you are receiving advice from an attorney with almost 30 years of expertise. I am familiar with the Courts, the process, and the law. With my offices providing only the services need, you can take advantage of the knowledge and experience without the high costs normally associated with retaining an attorney.
Why is this unusual? Most Clients retain lawyers who are then obligated by law and ethics to represent that Client through the entire case, including preparing all documents, perhaps participating in extensive discovery, and appearances at all Court hearings. On the opposite and sometimes precarious end, some people fail to seek legal advice or assistance and then may take wrong, misguided or incomplete actions thereby jeopardizing their rights – please remember, you do not get second chances in Court. Court orders are enforceable by law the first time. Being self-represented, or in pro per, with my assistance is the middle ground – you can get the expertise and experience of a respected and knowledgeable attorney yet save a substantial amount of your money.
Another often overlooked benefit of self-representation is that it can help to minimize conflicts with the other person. With self-representation, instead of fights and arguments, I find that cooperation often prevails. This makes the process easier, less stressful and more effective.
My legal services are provided in a sympathetic and understanding manner. I will not judge you or your case, but I will provide you with the expert advice you need.
