Since retiring from the bench, Scott J. Silverman has continued to distinguish himself as one of Miami’s premiere mediators and arbitrators. For three years running, the Daily Business Review rated him the Best Alternative Dispute Mediation Individual in its “Best of 2013,” "Best of 2014," and "Best of 2015" surveys.

Further, the distinguished London-based ratings firm of Chambers and Partners listed just 20 mediators, including Silverman, in its inaugural 2016 USA Guide. Chambers wrote:

Well-known mediator and former judge Scott Silverman has a broad-ranging practice in alternative dispute resolution, offering particular experience in commercial, employment and construction matters. "He has a very good business sense," say sources, "and as a result is able to come up with creative solutions that people normally don't think about. He is very good at identifying intangibles that people can use in negotiations and mediation." He is a member of JAMS and is based in Florida.
