Gregory S. Silver

After some twenty years I can honestly say I still get up in the mornings looking forward to going to work. I prefer the action and competition of the courtroom but I also appreciate the practicality that most cases settle along the way. I believe strongly, however, that to achieve an advantageous settlement for my client(s), I must be "Trial Ready". My opponents recognize my reputation as a skilled trial advocate and I take full advantage of this edge for my client(s).

I graduated from Long Beach State and served there as Student Body Vice President and also a Senator at Large for the "Associates Students". While in college I was also listed in "Who's Who" of American Colleges and Universities.

I have worked as a lawyer in Long Beach for the Long Beach Convention & Visitor's Bureau, handling delicate personnel matters and have assisted countless local companies with a myriad of other legal issues.

If your legal needs involve not only professional skills but also "local knowledge," I believe I am your man.

I am an active member of OLD Ranch Golf & Tennis Club & additionally Lake Arrowhead County Club in our local mountains. My club associations have given me access to a wide variety of people resources from not only LA & Orange County but Riverside & San Bernardino Counties as well. more
