Stephen J. Silverberg Named By Super Lawyers Magazine as Top New York Metro Area Super Lawyer for 2019 in Elder Law

By Stephen J. Silverberg
New York Elder Law Attorney

Congratulations to my colleagues who share with me the prestige of being named to the New York Metro Super Lawyers list for 2019 in Elder Law.  It is an honor to be have been selected for the past eleven consecutive years.

Super Lawyers, part of Thomson Reuters, is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.

When you are making a decision about who you to work with to help your family navigate estate planning, long-term care, Medicaid, and related issues, you want to work with a professional with experience and focus in these areas of the law. A professional who includes estate planning or elder law as an occasional part of their practice will not have the knowledge as one who has devoted his career to attaining a higher level of skills.

Super Lawyers is just one of my credentials that, I believe, elevates my practice above many of my peers.

I am one of only 500 CELAs® in the entire country, which requires meeting rigorous qualification standards from the National Elder Law Foundation (NELF). The purpose of the certification program is to identify those lawyers who “…have the enhanced knowledge, skills, experience, and proficiency to be properly identified to the public as certified Elder Law attorneys.”

I have also been recognized by Martindale, with an AV-Preeminent rating (5 out of 5) that I have maintained for many years.

Not every Elder Law attorney has attained these achievements.

I invite you to read my professional biography and if you have questions, please call me at 516-307-1236 to make an appointment.
