Leslie A. Silva, a partner at Tully Rinckey PLLC’s Albany office, is deeply committed to assisting families in Albany, New York, in navigating intricate legal matters encompassing divorce, child support, spousal maintenance, child custody, marital agreements, adoptions, and more. Tully Rinckey PLLC maintains over ten additional office locations throughout New York, California, Texas, and Washington, D.C.

In addition to her expertise in family law, Ms. Silva has also extended her practice to encompass education law. She adopts a student-centric approach, advocating for parents and students who encounter issues related to school discipline, civil rights violations, bullying, special education, and related matters. She also provides assistance with legal procedures related to due process complaints, Individualized Education Programs (IEP), and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Ms. Silva graduated from Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut, in 2005, earning a Bachelor of Science degree with a focus on political science. Subsequently, in 2008, she earned her law degree from the Western New England University School of Law in Springfield, Massachusetts. She obtained her licensure to practice law in the state courts of New York and Connecticut the following year, and later secured admission to the appellate courts in both states.

When not vigorously advocating for her clients’ rights, Ms. Silva dedicates her efforts to community involvement. She is a proud member of the New York State Bar Association and generously volunteers her time to provide pro bono services to domestic violence survivors. Previously, she served as a member of the Connecticut Women’s Education and Legal Fund (CWEALF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing women’s rights and opportunities in Hartford, Connecticut.
