David C. Silver
David C. Silver is a founding Partner of Silver Miller and is focused exclusively on representing aggrieved investors and cryptocurrency users worldwide who seek to recover their financial losses. Unlike many attorneys at large law firms, David does not charge his clients on an hourly basis. David accepts almost all of his cases on a pure contingency-fee basis. If you have a pure contingency-fee case and do not recover all or a portion of your losses, you do not have to pay us a fee for our services. You can find David on Twitter @dcsilver!
Though David has handled various matters across the spectrum of commercial litigation throughout his career, David has focused during the past ten years on individual clients who have lost money through fraud or other acts of deceit. When you lose or are owed money, David helps you get what belongs to you. Too often, lawyers and companies attempt to exploit financial regulations. David helps clients recover what belongs to them.
David is a Martindale Hubbell Preeminent “AV”-rated attorney (generally recognized as the highest rating given in the legal industry for general ethical standards and legal ability), and he tirelessly fights for his clients, having achieved victories totaling greater than $100 million in the last few years alone. For his efforts, David has been inducted into the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, an honor limited to attorneys who have won multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements, which includes fewer than one percent of lawyers in the United States.
On behalf of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), David has led multiple investigations into wrongdoing by officers and directors of several closed financial institutions as well as investigations into D&O insurance carriers, fidelity bond carriers, attorneys, accountants/auditors, real estate appraisers, and brokerage professionals as they related to the downfall of certain closed financial institutions.
David is also quickly becoming recognized as one of the leading lawyers in America representing victims of crooked and abusive cryptocurrency exchanges, helping investors who have been exploited after investing in digital assets such as Bitcoin, Ether, and Litecoin. In 2015, David was named lead Class Counsel in the litigation against now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange Cryptsy, where he led the effort in recovering for the Court-certified class of Cryptsy customers settlements and judgments valued in excess of $40 million. With additional class action lawsuits pending against Coinbase, Kraken, and other cryptocurrency exchanges, David is continuing his fight for individuals aggrieved by exploited members of the cryptocurrency community.
Along with being an active litigator in the cryptocurrency community, David is also very active in his own local community, as he serves on the Board of Directors of one of the largest housing communities in South Florida and on the Board of Directors of the Jewish Federation of Broward County as well as the Federation’s National Young Leadership Cabinet.
David began his legal career at Wicker Smith O’Hara McCoy Graham & Ford, a large Florida-based law firm. In April 2004, David joined the international law firm of Patton Boggs LLP (now Squire Patton Boggs LLP) in Washington, D.C., where his practice as a trial lawyer involved all aspects of civil litigation, including noteworthy pro bono work. In 2010, David left Patton Boggs LLP and returned to Florida. He was a Partner at Blum & Silver, LLP and Silver Law Group until he and Jason Miller founded Silver Miller.
