Standing Up For Consumers Against Financial Predators

About Larry Silverman

An Atlanta Debt Defense Attorney

Attorney Larry Silverman

Lawrence Silverman is the founder and managing attorney of Southeast Consumer Law. Practicing law in the states of Florida, New York, and Georgia since 1991, he has protected more than a thousand clients from the predatory practices of collection agencies, junk debt buyers, and financial institutions.

Larry founded Southeast Consumer to help consumers fight back against the rising tide of harassment and abuse from debt collectors. When a bank believes they will not be able to collect a loan from a debtor, they will often sell the rights to collect the debt to a third party. These third parties make their money purely by collecting on debts, and often use aggressive harassment to get the job done. Having extensive trial experience in both civil and criminal court, Larry has the skills, dedication, and drive needed to go up against these companies and protect the rights of debtors.

Outside of law, Larry is a professional pilot and flight instructor. He and his wife, Caryn, are the parents of four grown children and two crazy dogs.

Happy Clients

  • One of the most knowledgeable lawyers I have EVER worked with!!

    “Mr. Silverman was WONDERFUL!”


  • Helped calm my fears and gave me confidence!

    “Larry was indeed God-sent and an answer to my prayers! I had a student loan with JP Morgan who later sold it to NCSLT. I paid faithfully for 5 years. Then they demanded an increase in my payments. Embarrassingly, I eventually defaulted. In Jan 2018 I was served papers that NCSLT was suing me. Thankfully I’ve never had need for an attorney. I began my search online and spoke with an attorney who said he had experience dealing with NCSLT, yet talking with him, he proved he was only interested in my payments resuming and lowering my interest. I felt he was working for the plaintiff and not for me! So I continued to search the web. Thankfully, God allowed me to find Larry and upon speaking with him, I knew he had proven experience! He gave me confidence and explained everything to me regarding the lawsuit and my rights as a consumer. My fears soon left me. Larry filed for a dismissal and on the same day, the plaintiff agreed and dismissed the suit. Larry is knowledgeable and cares about the consumer. Don’t proceed with your legal matter without calling Larry! He’s confident and knows the law!!! He works for you... His mantra is true, Larry helps good people fight bad business!!! Thank you Larry for everything...AGAIN NCSLT cuts bait rather than deal with you!!”
