Firm Description

The Law Office of Stephen J. Silverberg, P.C., was founded by nationally known estate tax and Elder Law attorney Stephen J. Silverberg, Esq. to help clients plan for the future and preserve assets by managing complex legal, tax and financial issues.

Helping people is the essence of the firm’s mission and the guiding principle behind everything we do.

As a nationally recognized estate planning and Elder Law firm, we help individuals, families and business owners plan for the future and navigate through the highly technical world of estate planning, dealing with complex and sometimes emotionally difficult issues. Successful results are achieved by integrating the areas of estate tax, wealth preservation and business succession planning, Elder Law, Medicaid planning, estate administration, retirement benefits planning, and planning for closely held businesses and professional practices.

The cornerstone of our success is the nature of the relationship we maintain with each of our clients, who are treated with sensitivity and respect for their individual needs and objectives. Our dedication to quality, creativity and understanding of the law forms the foundation of our longstanding reputation with clients, the community, and other professionals.

Proper estate planning can make all the difference in whether a legacy is preserved for future generations, or if a substantial tax payment is made to the IRS. With careful planning and coordination of several key areas – Elder Law, estate tax and healthcare planning, wealth preservation and business succession planning – it is possible to ensure that a family’s wealth is properly managed from one generation to the next.

For more than three decades, Stephen Silverberg has provided caring, personalized service to clients through customized plans designed to meet individual needs and accomplish goals.
