History

Silverman Thompson is routinely recognized throughout the Mid-Atlantic as a premier litigation firm. Our lawyers regularly represent clients in high stakes and complex civil, criminal, and administrative matters in Maryland, Washington D.C. and across the United States.

The firm was founded in 1994 when current Managing Partner Steven D. Silverman left government service with the vision of forming an elite trial and litigation law firm. The firm has evolved into a unique blend of award-winning lawyers covering a broad array of practice areas.  As one example of our success in meeting that vision, the firm was recently voted as the best law firm in Maryland in all categories in the Daily Record’s 2019 reader ranking. Over 25,000 judges, legal professionals and readers voted to bestow this prestigious distinction on the firm.  This honor recognizes the fact that the firm’s attorneys come from diverse backgrounds and have proven themselves in the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Big Law, the Judiciary, and Academia. Few firms in Maryland can offer their clients the same winning combination of legal acumen, experience and relationships with the judiciary, as well as elected and appointed officials.

The firm’s clientele ranges from major global companies, professional athletes, municipalities, and small business to individuals. The firm has been at the center of some of the most watched and important civil and criminal cases in the past decade.
