Josh shares office space with his former partners Tom Williamson and Carolyn Lavecchia and he also serves as "of counsel" to Williamson Law LC.

Nursing Home Testimonial


After the death of her daughter Tiffany, Brenda asked Tiffany’s nursing home what went wrong, but Brenda wasn’t given an answer. It was found that the negligence of the nursing home staff had cost Tiffany her life after we investigated the case.

The cases handled by Joshua Silverman often involve complex medical, scientific and technical issues. The Silverman Law Firm believes success in our cases demands both a thorough knowledge of the law and an in depth understanding of the relevant principles of medicine, science and technology. Josh's commitment to understanding the legal and medical complexities of his cases is shown through his publications and extensive experience speaking at seminars to fellow trial lawyers.  Josh is the past-chairman of the Long Term Care Litigation Section  and the Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Committee of the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association (VTLA).

As important as it is to understand the law and science, nothing is more important than to take the time to understand how the injury or malpractice has hurt the client.  Josh takes the time to get to know our clients and their immediate and long term needs.  That includes understanding the values of our clients and their goals.  Most clients want more than compensation.  They seek justice and they want their cases to have a positive impact on preventing other people from suffering the same injuries.
