I have been practicing law since 2015. I want to give you some background about my life, my education, and my work experience. If there is anything else you want to know about me before choosing a lawyer, please call.
Silvia B. Clemko
I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I am the oldest of six kids. As the daughter of immigrants, I witnessed the lasting impact a lawyer can have in a person’s life. I firmly believe that the practice of law is more than interpreting laws and advocating for clients. In my practice, my goal is to guide my clients as we navigate through the legal process in seeking their desired outcome.
I attended law school in Lansing, Michigan. After law school, I returned to Dallas, Texas, to start my legal career at a boutique personal injury firm. My work involved representing people who were hurt due to someone else’s negligence. Early on, my time was spent negotiating with insurance companies, taking and defending depositions (recorded interviews), settling cases in mediation, and taking cases to trial.
Today, I am very fortunate and proud to be an attorney for Dean Omar Branham+Shirley. They encompass qualities I believe are needed to truly stand up to the big corporations and hold them accountable to the people they have harmed.
