Meet Our Team
Barrister & Solicitor
Cindy Silver earned a B.A. (Hons.) at the University of Saskatchewan in 1987. She earned her LL.B (JD) from the University of British Columbia in 1991, and was called to the BC bar in 1993.
Through her 27- year career, Cindy has gained a broad range of legal experience in both litigation and solicitor’s work. Along the way she has discovered that her real passion is in being a solicitor, working directly with clients to achieve their legal needs and goals from start to finish. Cindy has valuable interpersonal skills that enhance her effectiveness in representing a client’s interest and perspective in real estate, contracts and corporate law.
In 2007, Cindy founded Silver Law. The ideas behind this personalized North Shore law firm are simple: to create an environment founded on a mix of old-style and contemporary business principles, combining professionalism and expertise with great customer service in a relaxed, welcoming environment.
Silver Law’s goal is to develop working relationships with people who share common business values, including mutual respect. The purpose: to maintain an atmosphere where work is meaningful and enjoyable, both within the team and with our clientele.
Cindy Silver has been actively involved in the North Shore community for three decades, holding many elected and volunteer positions. Through Silver Law, she is committed to giving back to the community and offers a variety of pro bono services where they are needed.
