For over 40 years, Mr. Silver has represented individuals and families involved in litigation and claims against large insurance companies and government entities. He specializes in all kinds of personal injury and workers compensation and has successfully handled cases, both large and small, ranging from automobile collisions, dog bites, victims of violent crime, dram shop liability, cyclist/pedestrian accidents, wrongful death, on-the-job injuries, slip-and-falls and food poisoning.

In each and every case, Mr. Silver’s goal is to provide quality legal representation that levels the playing field against a large, well-capitalized opposition. The legal process can be a challenging and overwhelming ordeal for anyone. Mr. Silver prides himself on providing the highest ethical and professional legal services while zealously advocating on his client’s behalf.

Mr. Silver began his extensive career with the Cook County Public Defender’s Office where carefully honed his trial skills.

Interesting Facts: Mr. Silver grew up just outside the northern border of Chicago, and knows the city like the back of his hand. He is an avid sports fan of all Chicago teams, especially the Chicago Cubs.

In his lifetime, he has competed in approximately 80 triathlons. Nowadays, in his spare time, he enjoys swimming and biking with his wife of over 35 years and spending time with his family, especially his two grandchildren.
