Silvia G. Gerges
MANAGING PARTNER

Silvia G. Gerges is a SuperLawyers Rising Star. Each year, no more than 2.5% percent of lawyers in each state are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers (a Thomson Reuters Business) to receive this honor. She is known as a fearless and passionate advocate in the courtroom, whose meticulous preparation and extraordinary work ethic frequently puts her several steps ahead of her adversaries. 

Silvia has a particular contempt for bullies and a genuine empathy for the suffering of the downtrodden and defenseless, making her especially comfortable representing victims of corporate or government misconduct.

Prior to going to law school Seton Hall University, Silvia earned a bachelors and masters degrees with honors in the field of psychology. This background makes her a master of the psychology of the courtroom and gives her a crucial edge whether picking a jury or cross-examining a deceptive defense witness.

Before law school, Silvia spent several years in management and carries this experience with her into her law practice. In addition to representing victims of employment discrimination, she has used her knowledge of employment law and her background in management to advise employers and businesses on how to create fair, legal, and effective business models as well as policies and procedures. Her focus is always to help businesses address areas of risk while treating their employees and customers fairly and in compliance with the law.

When she is not litigating on behalf of victims of malpractice, discrimination or negligence, Silvia serves as in-house counsel for a non-profit organization working to protect children and families and is a mother to two beautiful children.
