TAMPA, Fla.– Aug. 31, 2015 – Murray B.

The FCTC was established in 2010 for the purpose of advising the Chief Justice and Supreme Court on matters relating to the use of technology in the Judicial Branch. The FCTC recommends technology policy and procedural rules to the Supreme Court regarding the ongoing development and implementation of Florida’s statewide electronic courts system.

At Greenberg Traurig, Silverstein focuses his practice on business, commercial, and real property litigation. He regularly represents companies and individuals in jury and non-jury trials in the state and federal courts of Florida. He is board certified in Business Litigation and Civil Trial practice by The Florida Bar. Additionally, Silverstein has provided effective mediation services to hundreds of litigants.
