Reviews and Testimonials

"I am a lawyer and have known Tom Silverman for more than 30 years. We have worked together, and I have seen him in court dozens of times. We have spent hundreds of hours talking about the way he handles his cases. I doubt there is anybody more familiar with his abilities or better able to vouch for him than me.

 

Tom is brilliant, dedicated, resourceful and a relentless warrior for his clients. He is extraordinarily well-prepared and persuasive in court and achieves truly remarkable results.

 

I could say a lot more, but here’s the bottom line: I know a great many lawyers, but if I got arrested, I would call Tom. Nobody else." — Tom Jirak




"I have known Tom for 20 years and have never needed his expertise until last March. I had always heard how knowledgeable and professional he is with his practice, but until I needed him I didn’t fully understand the extent of his work. I was very impressed with Tom’s office and his practice. The professionalism and understanding was incredible. I hgihly recommend him for all your legal needs. Thanks Tom!!" — Greg Gortsema




"Thomas Silverman represented me in many cases (from speeding tickets to worse). I would like to say that he was extemely educated about everything pertaining to traffic and dui laws.I am so pleased with the way he handled my case and my personal situation. His knowledge is far more than many lawyers out there, and now because of him I have way better knowledge of the laws and my personal rights when I am pulled over for a traffic violation. I want to personally thank THOMAS SILVERMAN for helping me with my cases over the past year. I highly reccommend him for any law service! Make him your first call!" — Tristin Haase




"I am a teacher that was going through a drawn out divorce process that seemed to never end. In the middle of the 3rd year of trying to get a parenting schedule changed for the benefit of my children and myself. My lawyer at the time was going on vacation when the opposing lawyer tried some underhanded dirty schemes. My lawyer at the time was still going on vacation no matter my situation. Thanks for going on vacation, because I found Katie Hays with Silverman Law Office. If you want someone who gets the job done and won’t drain your finances, call Silverman Law Office. Remember….Pay for quality now, or you will pay it later!" — Coy Keithley



 

"Tom silverman is the man. Recently I was wrongfully stopped and charged with a DUI, by an overzealous state trooper. The whole reason he stopped me was a cracked windshield that didn’t even obstruct my vision whatsoever. Seeing how those don’t look good on your record and cost around $10,000 it was a no brainer to fight it. Deciding to use Tom was one of the best decisions I have ever made. His professionalism and expertise were at a level unrivaled by both the state trooper and the DA. His preparation was so extensive that they didn’t have a chance, he seriously blocked off every route they tried to take to convict me, not only that but he tore the state trooper a new one, who I will not name cause I know it was embarrassing, I think he was in tears when he left the court room. Anyway the bottom line is that Tom is the best at what he does, period. And I would suggest him to anyone in need. Thanks allot Tom you saved my hide." — L. Chedsey

 


 

"Tom is an amazing and honorable attorney. He’s quick on his feet and knows the law inside and out. He’s an incredibly caring attorney who will do above and beyond for you. That is my experience and I’m so glad he was there for me and my family. He is worth every penny. I wish more people were as honorable as he.

 

The people who work in his office are amazingly proficient. Pam…I think she sleeps in the office, is always there providing a warm welcome with comfort and understanding.

 

If your looking for the best, contact Tom!" — Doris Hugo



 

"Tom Silverman couldn’t of been more of a help to me. I came home from iraq on leave for only a few weeks then had to go back. I was in colorado springs visiting my girlfriend at UCCS. I was given an MIP after someone called the cops saying we were to loud. I was completely cooperative with the officers telling them I have had a few beers but yet they still gave me an MIP after i blew an .o14. So pretty much nothing. They didn’t care that I had to go back to iraq and I couldn’t make my court date. Not only did they give me an MIP but I got escorted off the campus and told I was not allowed back for a full year. When Mr. Silverman found out about this he started calling people, writing letter, everything he could. I couldn’t of been more grateful of him because I couldn’t do anything because i had go back to iraq. He handled everything for me and got the case dropped. Thank you so much Mr. Silverman" — Chad Sommers



 

"This is the first time I was represented by a lawyer in Colorado and I am extraordinarily impressed by Tom Silverman’s professionalism and expertise. I was going through a very frustrating experience with a neighbor who has been harassing me for about 7 years. When I finally decided to end the matter, my boss recommended me to Tom Silverman. From the first day I met Tom, I got the feeling that he was a mastermind in his profession. I was confident and eager to allow him to represent me in court and take care of business. I was so impressed by the way he presented himself in court and how he used his authority to portray my case. Tom was the missing piece to this puzzle that took me 7 years to solve. I can finally have peace in my own home and it’s all thanks to Mr. Silverman. I can honestly give my full recommendation to anyone who needs a truly exceptional lawyer to represent them. My family and I are so grateful and pleased with Mr Silverman!"

"Thomas Silverman has been a great friend and THE BEST DEFENSE ATTORNEY in Colorado for me, for over twelve years. I, unfortunately, have a bit of a driving history that seems to land me in the path of the law from time to time. When things go wrong, and let’s face it folks, they tend to go wrong, it is comforting to know I am represented by Tom and his firm. My most recent situation involves me driving, again, with out my license, (prior conviction alcohol related). This carries with it a sentence of 90+ days in jail, Usefull Public Service, fines, and finally another revocation of my liscence for 1-5 years. Tom with a continued drive to defend worked out yet another miricle for me. We were able to plebargin a $600+ fine and 50 hrs UPS! This was my third Driving on Revocation!!! Now, I’m not saying Tom and his staff can always work miricles, but I wouldn’t trust my legal future to anyone else. Tom, thank you for all your hard work and great help!" — Jeremy Verheye




"I have personally witnessed Tom Silverman prepare and try cases and represent people and their children for many years and can say without hesitation that he is the best attorney in the 9th Judicial District, including Glenwood Springs, Aspen, Rifle, Carbondale, Parachute, Meeker and Eagle.

 

His knowledge of the law in the areas of criminal defense, DUI, divorce, and bankruptcy is unparalleled, but I’ve seen him handle all kinds of other cases too. Tom has successfully defended several family members who were delighted with their outcomes. He helped my husband and me with our Will, and has advised us with Estate planning. Experience and expertise is extremely important in the practice of law, and Tom’s background as a judge for 28 years as well as bankruptcy lawyer for 34 years, prosecutor, Guardian ad Litem, defense attorney, and collections lawyer is a tremendous benefit to his clients. He was also President of the Colorado Municipal Judges Association.

 

Tom is brilliant, thorough and he truly cares about the people he represents. I highly recommend Tom Silverman and his Silverman Law Offices for legal counsel and representation." — Becky Rippy




"We had to declare bankruptcy because Attorney Frank Ball would not work out a payment plan we could live with and garnished my husbands paychecks. With in 1 month we were able to file with the court and stop the garnishment. Tom and his whole team worked really hard to take care of this as fast and as easy as possible. They always were nice to answer our questions and put up with me calling almost every day. He was there with us at the creditors meeting and did everything he could to make it easy on us. He is the best attorney EVER!!!!" — Julia Mason

 


 

"Over the past 9 months I have had the pleasure and privilege to be represented by the Thos.D.Silverman law firm. The patience, professionalism and dedication of Tom, Katie, and all the staff was patently evident from the beginning. Mine was a tricky, difficult and politically sensitive case involving charges levied by my former spouse. Tom was outraged at the circumstances and disposition of my case, and felt very righteous about my defense. Tom’s experience, professionalism and patience made it possible to resolve my case without a trial. The case was dismissed without significant consequences to myself. I cannot recommend Tom, Katie and Pam and Joe highly enough! I consider The Silverman Law Firm my legal family." — Sean McWilliams

 


 
My husband and I had the unfortunate pleasure of hiring Tom Silverman for filing Bankruptcy. Tom did a great job for us and I recommend him for anyone that needs to get out of debt. My husband was very reluctant about filing bankruptcy but Tom quickly helped him feel at easy and understand that it wasn’t all our fault. The creditors were bailed out now it was out turn to get a fresh start. Cassie did a great job of putting everything together and answering all my questions in a fast and friendly manner. Keep up the great work. Thank you once again for all your help. I will send everyone that calls me to you.


My wife Christine and myself did not want to file for backruptcy,but due to job cut backs and the ecomomy we realy had no choice. We sought consultion from Thomas & his staff. They were awesome in every aspect, and helped us through this the entire process! I hope you don’t have to do this, but if you do please call Thomas, you will be glad you did! — Christine Peaslee




"Tom Silverman came highly recommended to me by family & friends, and I would not hesitate to refer his services to others. His representation was excellent, and his ability to calm my fears while facing an uncertain future was outstanding. I am thrilled with the outcome of my case, and can’t thank him enough." — K. Hobbs

 


 

"Our Family had never required the services of an attorney until recently when a totally unexpected situation showed up on our door step. The Sheriff knocks on our door wanting to arrest my wife of 40 years for a Felony. Just the words arrest sets you back on your heals with Felony tacked on, its OMG what do we do? Fortunately we have an acquaintance with more experience regarding attorneys. Tom Silverman was the immediate and sole recommendation. I want to cover as many bases as I can, for comparison, so I contact a couple of Aspen area attorneys, thinking there may be some benefit there. They seemed good candidates but something was telling us to talk with Tom.


We go into our consultation with Tom wondering how all this works and is he the one to trust? Immediately he is putting my wife at ease with her situation and explaining the process. We get on to the details of the situation and I could see in his eyes that he was getting fired up and wanted to go to work. Tom is the real deal, he was born to do what he does and he lives for it. I can’t imagine anyone being able to bring such a calming level of relief to such a serious situation, any better than Tom did for us. He knows the system and he has the respect of the legal community that comes from years of doing business the right way. In our situation the outcome couldn’t of been better, and now we can without hesitation recommend Tom to anyone that might have an unfortunate life experience that would require his expertise. Tom you worked a miracle for me, I could never thank you enough." — Pam



 

“I was arrested for my 3rd DUI by the Rifle Police Department in October of 2010. I went to Silverman Law Offices because I heard that they were the best at fighting DUI’s. I had an initial consultation with Joe Kirwan. I immediately hired him after meeting with him.


Joe won my DMV hearing hands down. He discovered that the officer had performed the breathalyzer test incorrectly. Not only that, but he discovered that the officer was only in patrol for “the heat is on.” Normally, he is a detective so was not very familiar with the regulations of how to properly execute a DUI stop. All of this came about by Joe asking the right questions throughout the hearing. When you have an officer admitting his own faults and not emphasizing yours, you know you’re on to something good. Because of the faults of the officer’s, the DMV hearing officer threw out the DMV case and I was able to keep my license.


I couldn’t have been more pleased with how things worked out. Joe was very easy to deal and is a great guy in general. He was very good at keeping me informed the whole step of the way and I never had any questions. Joe Kirwan was the right man for the job." — Matt




"I was referred to Joe Kirwan by another attorney back in 2009 after being wrongfully arrested for DUI by a Rio Blanco Sheriff’s Deputy. I was so glad the other attorney was going to be out of town for my hearings and unable to take my case. Right after meeting Joe, I knew that I had found who I wanted to represent me and defend my rights. Often times, so many of us know that we were done wrong yet are unable to prove so in a court of law on our own even when those with authority are clearly abusing it.


When I was facing charges of DUI, not only was my license on the line, but so was my job. I have a CDL. In order to be able to make a living for myself, not only did I have to stay out of jail, but I also needed a clear record to maintain both my CDL and occupation. Joe represented me for my hearing with the DMV. Joe won the DMV hearing with no questions asked. Many were asked, but Joe was the only one asking them. I was able to keep my license and my job which gave me so much relief.

 

The battle was half over. When we finally went to court in January of 2010, Joe Kirwan tore up the arresting Deputy Sheriff. Because Joe was able to find and expose so many discrepancies and errors made on the Sheriff’s behalf, the Judge suppressed all of the evidence. How would the D.A. be able to show guilt with no evidence? At a loss and nothing to prove because of Joe’s persistence, the D.A. dismissed the entire case.

 

I was done wrong by the legal system. Joe got it all straightened out and in line. The Sheriff acted outside of his limits and was exposed in the end. I will always come back to Joe if I have any other legal issues. He is an outstanding attorney and I recommend him to anyone." — Perry Keener



 

"My boyfriend was a client of the wonderful Tom Silverman and I was the supposed victim. According to me I didn’t want to be the victim but you know how the system goes, they have to blame it on someone. Well long story short my boyfriend and I got caught up in the wonderful world of domestic violence and the outcome looked very very bad for the love of my life/defendant. A lot of alcohol was involved in the situation, one thing led to another and my man was looking at five years in prison. The reason that I am commenting is because the D.A. and the victims assistance that was supposed to be helping me did no such thing. Mr. Silverman by far worked his magic for my boyfriend and got him off with community service not five years in prison. An amazing feat but helped me as well. Mr. Silverman actually listened to me and gave me the courage to say what I really felt and stand up to the people that were acting like they cared but wanted nothing to do with me. The people that were supposed to be on my side. We love you Tom Silverman! You are an amazing lawyer and an by far an even remarkable man." — Sarah Escalante
