Amy Silberstein, Divorce & Family Law Attorney
Amy Silberstein is an associate with Stern Perkoski Mendez. Amy’s practice is concentrated in divorce and family law.
Putting her clients first, Amy takes the time to listen before offering guidance. As a child of divorce, Amy approaches every situation with a heightened understanding of the legal and personal issues involved for both parents and children, and always lends a sympathetic ear.
Her steadfast dedication to her clients’ well-being and zealous advocacy on their behalf is reflected in the positive outcomes she elicits on every matter—regardless of how difficult or contentious.
Eager to give back to her community, Amy served as a law clerk for the Chicago Legal Clinic’s Domestic Relations Division before joining the firm. There she met with clients and prepared necessary documents related to their representation. She also worked as a law clerk at a boutique family law firm in Chicago.
