There are not enough words to thank David Silek for what he did for me as I was faced with battling for child custody of my daughter. He was the first attorney that seemed to truly understand my concern and urgency. He walked me through the process, explaining each step and defended my rights as a parent as if it were his personal battle. My daughter is now with me and is thriving.

Filled in when a last minute hearing was scheduled and our regular attorney couldn't be there. Spent time preparing to be sure he could represent us as best as possible. Kind. Thorough.

David is an excellent Advocate for his clients. He is a staunch defender of their rights and will not back down from any opponent regardless of the size of the legal team that opposes him. I would recommend him with out any reservations. If you want a Lawyer who would defend you to their last breath David is that Lawyer.

Mr. Silek is an excellent attorney , has always kept a line of communication open to me. In the court room he is always well prepared and pays close attention and picks up on things that most would not, and as I seen someone else had posted he is extremely quick to revise his strategy as he sees fit to better benefit the case at hand. I have been very pleased with his services as well as his staff. He is very knowledgeable and defiantly knows his way around a court room. I would highly recommend

If I had retained David earlier in my divorce proceedings, I would have had the outcome I SHOULD have had. David performed extraordinarily in the court room and was thoroughly prepared vs the "other" much older and so-called more seasoned attorney times 3 generational attorney. He set a MAJOR triumph in Shenanadoah Co courtroom with my case. He is extremely keen with child custody issues as well. I would have David for the rest of my life as MY attorney. I have already referred 2 other people.

As a former Deputy Sheriff and Court Room Bailiff for 8 years, I know that all Attorneys are NOT created the same. I specifically sought out David Silek because I have seen him in action AND he was recommended to me by NUMEROUS Judges. He is very personable, has gone ABOVE AND BEYOND any expectation I ever had and has literally saved me from the continuing onslaughts from my ex-wife. I sleep better at night knowing David Silek is on my side. I strongly recommend his services to anyone in need.

Mr. Silek has been very helpful to me in several areas, including a messy divorce and legal guardianship of an aging parent. In both cases, he was knowledgeable, professional, and responsive. He was often required to tell me things I didn't want to hear but did so in a diplomatic, sympathetic manner. He inevitably proved to be correct. I would -- and have -- recommend his services to friends.

I have worked with David on various matters over the past 10 years and find him to be most professional, yet a joy to work with. His personal business experience gives him real world knowledge and better prepares him to give sound legal advice and leadership. He has a proven, and successful, track record. I would strongly recommend David Silek.

David Silek is a fabulous attorney. He is extremely responsive to my questions and needs. Had an emergency situation with my child and David returned my phone call regarding the issue in the middle of the night. He relentlessly works for his clients. I wouldn't hesitate to go anywhere else with any future legal needs that I may have.

    About Client Rating
    About Peer Rating

    Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

    Determining a Rating

    The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

    • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
    • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
    • 1-2.9 Rated

    Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

    The Reviewers

    Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

    Anonymity

    Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

    Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

    Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

    Martindale-Hubbell's role

    Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

    It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
