About Ian Silverthorne

Silverthorne Attorneys is a personal injury law firm in Orange County that was founded by lead attorney Ian Silverthorne. Ian grew up in a small town in Maine and made the trek out to Southern California alone to pursue an education and the dream of becoming an attorney.

Ian received a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications from Cal State Fullerton before he attended Chapman University’s School of Law. While attending school, he worked as the intake director for a law firm in Orange County.

After graduating from Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law and passing the California State Bar, Ian began work on creating and running Silverthorne Attorneys from the ground up. Since beginning the practice in 2012, Ian our team at Silverthorne Attorneys has been able to recover several seven-figure settlements for our clients and their families. From car accidents and dog bites, to wrongful deaths and premises liability cases; Ian has been able to go to bat for his clients against the insurance companies. Ian was featured in entrepreneur.com in an article on how to creating a thriving business.

The top priority and focus of our firm is the people we represent. Our mission is to provide our clients with the best service possible as we work one-on-one with our clients.

We have made it our mission to build a personal injury law firm that stands for integrity. Every personal injury attorney in our firm has years of experience taking on insurance adjusters and we never back down when you are being taken advantage of. Our motivation is simple – help those who have been injured and their families that are being treated unfairly by insurance companies.

Ian is not shy when it comes to taking on insurance adjusters. He is not one to give up or back down if he feels as though our clients are not getting the treatment they deserve. As head attorney, Ian has successfully gone up against insurance companies, even in cases that seem impossible, and has been able to get our clients the compensation they need in order to get their lives back.

When it comes to pursuing your case with conviction and honesty, there is no other personal injury law firm that has your best interests at heart other than Ian and the team at Silverthorne Attorneys.
