Alan R. Silverman is a co-founder of Silverman & Silverman, located in Carlsbad and San Francisco, California. Focusing his practice exclusively on family law matters, he represents clients from the Bay Area and San Diego County as well as from other states and countries in matters involving divorce, child custody and visitation, spousal and child support, domestic violence and property division.
Mr. Silverman received his undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1970. After obtaining a Ph.D. in counseling psychology from the University of Oklahoma in 1976, he received a marriage, family and child therapy license from the state of California the following year and remained active as a therapist until 1989, when he entered Whittier Law School, earning his Juris Doctor in 1991. This extensive background in psychology has provided Mr. Silverman with a rich and unique perspective in his family law practice and is invaluable when he is preparing for the testimony of mental health professionals.
