Terry has practiced law in Gainesville since graduating from law school at the University of Florida in 1974.
He is admitted to practice law in Florida, Georgia (inactive), United States District Courts for the Northern, Middle and Southern Districts of Florida, the United States Supreme Court, and Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeal. He has served on the Florida Bar Grievance Committee and Fee Arbitration Committee for the Eighth Judicial Circuit of Florida.
Mr. Silverman maintains an active litigation practice, including personal injury, wrongful death, medical malpractice, insurance disputes, and business litigation. He strongly believes that a mediator who still litigates cases has a better appreciation of the issues that attorneys litigating cases confront in their daily practices.
In addition to being a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit and County Court Mediator since 1996, he has also been a Florida Supreme Court Qualified Arbitrator since 2003.
Over the past 20 years, Terry has served as a mediator in over two thousand cases with the vast majority resulting in settlement. His mediation practice covers all of the Northern Region of Florida.
The office is designed to comfortably accommodate the participants. Those cases have consisted of complex multiparty disputes that include personal injury, wrongful death, nursing home liability, sexual harassment, commercial, contract, employment, product liability, insurance, real estate, construction, foreclosure, and probate disputes.
