At Silverthorne Attorneys, we understand the value and importance of education and how some people miss out on their opportunity to pursue a higher education because of rising tuition costs. Lead attorney, Ian Silverthorne, put himself through CSU Long Beach before heading to Chapman University’s Fowler School of Law. This is why he wants to give back. With the cost of education continuing to rise, Silverthorne Attorneys wants to make sure everyone has the chance to go after their dream.

Silverthorne Attorneys’ goal is to take some of that financial burden off of the shoulders of hard-working students.
