Meet Joseph A. DiSilvestro Senior Attorney

Joseph A. DiSilvestro

Senior Attorney

If he wasn’t a lawyer, he would be a chef.

Attorney Joseph A. DiSilvestro dedicates much of his legal practice to advocating for children as a Guardian Ad Litem or Attorney for the Minor Child. In this role, he helps families look past their conflict to a resolution that is best for the children. He believes that while children might have the smallest voice in the family, sometimes they have the most to say.

Joseph graduated from SUNY Albany Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2004, a degree that he uses every day in the emotionally complex world of family law. He graduated Quinnipiac University School of Law in 2007, with a concentration in Family Law. Joseph continues to support his alma mater and community by volunteering his time and legal expertise in the annual Public Interest Law Project, as well as serving as a guest judge at the Alternative Dispute Resolution Competition.

In addition to family law, Joseph is an experienced practitioner in the following areas:

Bankruptcy, Motor Vehicle Law, Personal Injury, Real Estate, Criminal Law, Probate

Joseph DiSilvestroPrior to joining Bauer Law Group, Joseph was a partner at Kolb & DiSilvestro. Joseph currently serves as co-chair of the Family Law Committee of the New Haven County Bar Association. This committee brings continuing education to the legal community.

When he isn’t in the courtroom, Joseph, who is half-Italian and half-Cuban, can be found in the kitchen whipping up gourmet meals for his son and wife from recipes he finds online or that have been handed down for generations. If he isn’t in the kitchen, Joseph can often be found playing with, or more likely taking pictures of his pup, Sir Winston Churchill.
