Creative lawyering, legal expertise, respect by other lawyers – and especially judges – combined with sensitivity and personal attention to clients’ needs – these and many more unique qualities have set Willard H. DaSilva apart from other attorneys and justify his “Tier 1” and “AV” ratings and designation as a “Preeminent Attorney” in the fields of divorce and family law. He is recognized as one of the top 100 family trial lawyers in the country and is a past President of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, New York Chapter. His book, New York Matrimonial Practice, is viewed as the “Bible of Family Law”. He lectures before judges and other lawyers in the United States, Canada and Europe.
Accomplishment, leadership, innovative lawyering, results and—most important of all—client focus. Those are the hallmarks that caused the New York Law Journal to refer to him as the “Dean of Matrimonial Lawyers”.
