    For Your Claim, Get One of the Most Experienced Georgia SSDI Attorneys

    Kent Silver is a highly experienced disability attorney—a partner and cofounder of our Georgia disability law firm—who has helped thousands of Georgians win life-changing disability benefits.

    Kent and the firm celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2024. He started the firm in 1984 with another attorney who he knew from law school. In 2000, he joined with Georgia benefits attorney Arthur Archibald to create Silver & Archibald  as we know it today.

    “Our practice is basically a triangle of law, medicine and social work,” Kent wrote to the Silver & Archibald team when he marked the firm’s 40th anniversary. “I have always told clients that the operative word is help, and I firmly believe that.”

    Before he went into private practice for himself, Kent worked for Georgia Legal Services, beginning a career devoted to people in need of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.

    When he helped start the law firm, it was just three people: two disability lawyers and a paralegal.

    “I have been extremely pleased about the growth of the practice,” he said. “Everything worked extremely well for many years with the growth of attorneys, staff people, the number of offices, and the expansion of the types of claims accepted.”

    “I trust that we will continue to be a successful, vibrant, helpful presence in the legal world for people with disabilities from throughout Northeast Georgia.”

    The entire team of SSDI benefits lawyers at Silver & Archibald carries on the values and mission that Kent Silver instilled in the firm.

    In recent years, the firm he built has ranked first in the entire state of Georgia for the amount of disability benefits it secures for clients, as shown in data from the Social Security Administration.

Met with Mr. Silver and he explained everything and gave me honest answers. Went to court, and the judge approved me on the spot. . . .
