  • Hiring Mr. Karpf was the best thing my brother could have done!
    Hiring Mr. Karpf was the best thing my brother could have done! He saved his job and his life! The Hispanic community is often misunderstood due to the language barrier and other "life" struggles they face. Not only could he communicate with my brother in his native language but he has Spanish speaking staff that were very comfortable to deal with. He is kind, compassionate and understanding with this population. Couldn't be happier that he is part of our community! Thank you again!!

  • These lawyers saved my life!!!!!!
    If it wasn't for Andrew Karpf, my life would be ruined. He defended me rigorously against false charges, which would have caused me to lose my job and get deported. The Spanish speaking office made it very easy to communicate and made me feel safe and comfortable. I cannot thank these lawyers enough!!!

  • We went to trial and I was found not guilty of all charges.
    Mr. Andrew Karpf is a excellent trial attorney. I was charged with a Felony DWI, facing a 4 year prison term. I took the breath test and they claimed my reading was .12%. I was facing the loss of my CDL license and my job. Before l made my final selection, l met with other lawyers. None wanted to take my case to the jury. They all wanted me to plead guilty to a DWI. Mr. Karpf never made any promises, but he walked and spoke with confidence. We went to trial and I was found not guilty of all charges. I got my CDL back and never lost my freedom.

  • Larry goes above and beyond what any other attorney I know would do for his clients.
    My name is Tara Bell. I have been working in the legal field for 20 years and worked for Larry 10 out of those 20 years. I cannot say enough about Larry, but as an attorney, and I have met several over the years, he is the best. As a person, he is the most compassionate, caring and thoughtful person I know which, I believe, is the main reason he is such an outstanding attorney in all the areas of law that he practices. Larry goes above and beyond what any other attorney I know would do for his clients. Over the years I have referred all my family and friends to this exemplary attorney knowing that they will be given the best possible service available.

  • Mr. Bark was very sincere and honest
    I was arrested in July 2013 for drunk driving. I was referred by an acquaintance to Mr. Peter Bark. Mr. Bark was very sincere and honest on what was going to happen and what was the worst scenario. I insisted that I was innocent so we planned for a trial. We went to trial for DWI / DUI. Mr. Bark from the start of the trial was brilliant, from his opening statements to the closing arguments constantly rebutting the questions that the ADA threw at me. Also when the 4 police witness came to testify Mr. Bark had them scrambling for words. The outcome after the 3 day trial was NOT GUILTY on BOTH counts. Mr. Bark was so professional from start to finish I would highly recommend him and his associates to anyone that needs assistance.

  • Thank you Mr. Silverman I am forever grateful.
    The moment I knew I needed an attorney and not knowing what to do I started searching the Internet. After a little searching I found Mr. Silverman’s web site and felt comfortable enough to call him. I was extremely nervous and embarrassed about my situation. Mr. Silverman took my call right away and without even knowing me told me what to do and even called me back later in the day to check up on my situation. Mr. Silverman is extremely patient and caring and answered all my questions and concerns. It was very obvious that he is much respected in the courts because he was able to meet with the D.A privately and resolve my case on the first court appearance in my favor. I am so thankful of Mr. Silverman and would tell anyone in search of an attorney to give him a call and watch how quickly you’ll feel at ease. Thank you Mr. Silverman I am forever grateful.

  • I had the opportunity to retain the services of Peter Bark and Andrew Karpf
    I had the opportunity to retain the services of Peter Bark and Andrew Karpf a short while back. They were very professional in everything they did. There was always an open line of communication amongst all concerned parties. Their demeanor in the court room was second to none. I would highly recommend anyone to retain their services if needed.

  • I was found not guilty in a record setting time
    I would like to give my sincere thanks and appreciation to Mr Karpf and his outstanding team. I retained Mr Karpf’s legal services after being wrongly charged of a crime of domestic violence. Throughout each step of the process Mr Karpf and his team kept me well informed, advised, and were very compassionate. From jury selection, to direct and cross examinations, motions, and closing arguments Mr Karpf was a genius during every aspect. As a result of his impeccable work I was found not guilty in a record setting time. Thank you Mr Karpf for a job well done and giving me my life back!

  • Mr. Karpf fought brilliantly and won one of the fastest jury verdicts in Suffolk County history
    My son hired Andrew Karpf to defend him against false charges brought by his wife. A conviction would probably have ended his career and limited contact with his daughter. Fortunately, Mr. Karpf fought brilliantly and won one of the fastest jury verdicts in Suffolk County history. His attention to detail and his impeccable memory are very impressive. I am forever grateful to you for a job well done in defending my innocent son. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  • I have recommended him to anyone who has asked me about an attorney.
    I had been sitting in the County Jail for six months. The criminal charges against me had been dismissed, and Legal Aid was representing me on a parole violation. The parole violation should have automatically been dismissed, but the revocation specialist for the Division of Parole bagan playing hard ball with me. She sought a contested hearing on the isssue. Legal Aid seemed to be at a loss. They had no paperwork in my file, and both I and my family were distraught and in a panic because we had no idea what evidence the revocation specialist was relying on. Out of frustration, my family hired Larry Silverman. The fee we paid Larry was the best money we ever spent. Almost immediately Larry began tracking down the paperwork, answers came flowing in, and in no time at all we were certain that Larry Silverman was going to carry the day for us. After a long, hard-fought battle in which the Division of Parole threw every dirty trick in the book at me to try to have my parole violated, Larry won for me. In stead of spending the next 7 years incarcerated, I am now free and with my family again. It never would have happened if Larry and his staff had not stepped in and fought like hell for me. I will never forget the peace of mind Larry and his staff gave to myself and my family during what was a time of fear and uncertainty for us all. I would retain his services again any time, and I have recommended him to anyone who has asked me about an attorney.

  • I consider you a true friend. May God always be with you and your family.
    Dear Larry, I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that you have done for me. Over the past 15 years you have represented me several times; not only did you represent me in a professional manner, but achieved outcomes better than I anticipated. You have always gone the extreme distance for me. Not only do I consider you a respected attorney, I consider you a true friend. May God always be with you and your family. Thank you.

  • He is an angel in disguise.
    With the deepest of gratitude I write this letter. I didn't know where to begin to find an attorney who would defend my son. When my son was violated by his parole officer he was in Long Island and I was in Florida. I looked on the internet for a possible defense lawyer. I found Mr. Silverman . He went to the correctional facility to visit my son and proceded to get the information he needed to defend him. I want to tell you we were very satisfied with the outcome. I would recommend Mr. Silverman to anyone who would need an attorney. He is an angel in disguise.

    - M.R.

  • I will gladly refer anyone I know who can use your help.
    Larry within minutes of that first phone call you took over the burden and resolved a very stressful situation for both my son and I. I've thanked my co-worker for referring me to your office and will gladly refer anyone I know who can use your help.

  • Larry Silverman is an extremely smart, hard working, experienced, and highly productive attorney.
    Larry Silverman is an extremely smart, hard working, experienced, and highly productive attorney. He was on top of my case and always kept me informed during a very difficult time. His fees were also very reasonable. He is a good person and showed nothing less than the highest standards of integrity. I trusted him completely. I highly recommend him.

    - P.S.

  • To stay out of jail then you should not hesitate to call Larry Silverman now.
    I was, as they say, "in the doghouse", big-time, due to multiple suspended license infractions and felt like there was no easy way out. Mr. Silverman's courtroom competence in front of the judges on multiple occasions, his sound advice and his legal efficiency, cleared my license, and kept me out of jail. I'd have to say it was no easy task but Mr. Silverman made it look like it was simple as he was doing all of this for me. Well, that's the value of many years of experience in working in the Nassau and Suffolk courts and understanding ways of the judges. So my advice to anyone is if you want the shortest way to get things cleared up and at the same time, to stay out of jail then you should not hesitate to call Larry Silverman now.

  • You're a fool not to hire him
    "In a day and age where it seems no one cares: Lawyers are all about the money, just as much as our so called justice system it's nice to know Lawyers such as Laurence A Silverman exist. I can't say enough about Mr. Silverman. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is one of the few who actually seems to care. Just like anyone else he needs to make a living; he doesn't work for free but it's not all about the money. Mr. Silverman cares and when you have a legal problem I think it's paramount that you have someone like Mr. Silverman in your corner. Mr. Silverman is "very fair" cost wise as well to hire him and he will have your back 200% in court. You cannot ask for a more professional and experience Attorney neither. Speaking for my family and myself, we greatly appreciate the services Mr. Silverman provided on my behalf. I would not only say I trust him and would recommend him to anyone, I'd even go so far as to say you're a fool not to hire him. I'd also like to thank Mr. Silverman again, as well as his staff, in the handling of my case. Best wishes to you all! "

  • I am grateful to Mr. Silverman and his pleasant staff.
    After I received 5 very serious traffic tickets I immediately panicked since one of the tickets could have resulted in losing my license for 1 year. I expressed my concerns to a close friend who immediately provided me with Mr. Silverman's contact information. This was then followed by a detailed explanation of why Mr. Silverman was highly recommended.....my friend's husband avoided serving time in jail. I contacted Mr. Silverman on a Saturday (when law offices tend to be closed) and he graciously listened to my story. This conversation was then followed with several phone calls/emails from his office. I never once felt uninformed about the process leading to my court appearance. To my great surprise and astonishment Mr. Silverman saved my license (which my driving privileges were never compromised) and saved me from fines because he was able to have several of the tickets dropped/eliminated. I am grateful to Mr. Silverman and his pleasant staff.

  • Thank you Larry for all you have done.
    Laurence Silverman puts to bed any negativity that may revolve around the legal profession. From the first time we met, to the conclusion of my case I not only felt that Larry was a top notch attorney but a friend that I will have for a longtime. There are few men in his profession with the compassion, dedication, and concern for there clients, and his service was second to none. Your search for an attorney ends right here with Laurence Silverman as he will prove to you as he did to me to be benevolent, diligent and committed to your case and needs. I am forever grateful for the terrific job he did and how he treated me and my family throughout the trying times of my case. Thank you Larry for all you have done.

  • He is so enthusiastic and knows how to get to the point.
    In June 2008, my first attorney gave up on my case after almost one year of wasted time and money. I was so frustrated, but one of my friends recommended Mr. Laurence Silverman, Esq. to me. I drove my car from New Jersey to New York (Suffolk County, Long Island) right away. He greeted me courteously and listened to me with patience even though I spoke in poor English. He is so enthusiastic and knows how to get to the point. Thanks to his thorough preparing for the trial and excellent pleadings at court, I won my case and finally could get out of the nightmare of my past 14 months. I will definitely recommend Mr. Laurence Silverman, Esq. to any of my friends and relatives, as my friend did that for me. God bless you and all of your staff.

  • From the day I met you I have always spoken about you with admiration and respect.
    Larry: From the day I met you I have always spoken about you with admiration and respect. The words are hard to find to describe a Brother who possesses the integrity, compassion, and concern as well as the honesty you have. When I say SEMPER FI to you those are sacred words which come from my heart and soul . It has been and shall always remain an honor to me to have a Brother as solid as you are.

  • I thank you sir and will always feel grateful I had such a professional attorney and friend when I needed one the most!
    Mr. Bark, I'd like to express my heartfelt thank you for saving my life. This is not an understatement!! As you know in 2007 I was arrested and falsely accused by my ex-wife of assault. The Nassau County district attorney refused to drop charges and demanded I cop a plea to a lesser charge of harassment. If I had accepted this plea bargain it would've caused great harm in my professional life!! We went to trial in 2008 and I was found not guilty on all trumped up charges brought against me... I hate to think of the outcome if I had a different attorney. Once again I thank you sir and will always feel grateful I had such a professional attorney and friend when I needed one the most!!

I would highly recommend Mr. Silverman to any of my friends, family and co-workers.
