Tommy's Success Story

Tommy was accussed of a .17 DUI after he had a traffic accident. We conducted the DMV hearing and cross examined the cop regarding " LACK " of evidence to satisfy the 3 hour presumption - without adequate proof of driving within 3 hours at the time of the blood test.

Result: I Win!

Josh's Success strory

Was charged with a first time DUI with a BAC of .08. This occured in 2010. The problem Josh had was that he never went to court on the DUI charge. He came to my office for legal help. I set out a plan of attack called a Serna Motion in which we were attacking the delayed prosecution of his case.

Result: All DUI charges dismissed

Ernesto's Success Story

Ernesto was charged with a .08 or higher BAC after he completed four seperate breath samples, all recorded above a .10. We worked this case for 2 years and on the day set for trial we got ALL Dui charges dismissed in exchange to a no contest plea to a traffic infraction

Result: Hard work wins

David's Success Story

I met David when I was a young 20-something adult and I had bought a brand new airless sprayer from Home Depot.  My buddy, Mark, David’s dad, was living in an older home and he said, “hey, come test out that sprayer over there, we’ll have a bar-b-que and drink some beers.”  So I took my airless sprayer over there, and we ended up spraying that 1,100 square foot house in one day and it looked brand new.  David was only four years old at the time.  Almost 30 years later, I get a call from David, and he says, “I need help with a DUI.”  I have not heard from David in almost 30 years, so it was kind of a surprise to hear from this young man that I last knew as a young child.  

David told me that he was arrested for a DUI, and he did not think it looked good.  He said that he was blowing off some steam and he had went to the local bar.  I called the DMV to schedule an appointment to fight the license suspension, I received the police report about a month later.  When I read the report I thought, boy, this does not look good, the cop wrote in the report that David was swerving over the left double yellow line three full times, and he went over the right white line twice before he pulled him over.  David was arrested by California Highway Patrol which has a dash camera system, I subpoenaed the dash camera, and upon reviewing the video, there was some huge surprises.  The video disclosed that it looked nothing like the police report that the cop wrote.  Remember, the cop wrote that David went over the double yellow line three times and over the white line on the right twice.  

This is what the video disclosed.  David stopped at a red light, there’s a car behind him, the cop rolls up and he stops, they sit there another 10 seconds.  As the light turns green, David proceeds straight.  As he proceeds straight, the road dog legs to the right at about 15 degrees, David went straight, and as he got to the yellow line, he adjusted to the right, and continued driving in the middle of the lane.  David’s wheels maybe got within two to three inches of the yellow line, but it never went over the yellow line three complete times like the officer wrote in his report.  As I watched the video, it also disclosed that David did not go over the right white line even once. Based on the video, David drove completely perfect.  He did not speed, did not swerve, and he definitely did not go over the lines as the officer described.  

We held the DMV hearing, and I subpoenaed the officer to appear.  When he appeared, he testified, and he said exactly what his report said, he said David went over the line three complete lines, his wheel was all the way over the double yellow line on the left, and that he went over the right white line two complete times.  When I showed the officer the video, he stated, “oh, the videos can be wrong sometimes.  That’s not what I saw that night”, I’ll give credit to that officer, as the country song goes, “that’s my story and I’m sticking to it”.  Needless to say, I won the DMV and I saved David’s license.  I did not mention that this was David’s third DUI, and his blood alcohol level was 0.17.  A loss at the DMV would have required a suspension for a minimum of one year.

We went to court on his case, and I filed what’s called a motion to suppress under penal code 1538.5.  Upon filing the motion, I came to court ready with a laptop, a DVD, and I was able to get a seasoned District Attorney who recognized the problem that the officer would have if he was going to take the stand and testify about what he allegedly saw.  The DUI was dismissed, and ultimately, this saved David’s job and his license.

I recommend Patrick Silva.

When I received my DUI I reached out to another lawyer I knew and he referred me to Patrick Silva based on his experience and reputation in the legal community. I believed I had a case and after reviewing the details Mr. Silva felt strongly in supporting me as well. My case was dismissed after going to trial. It was a very stressful situation for me and Patrick went above my expectations throughout the entire process. I found Mr. Silva to be very ethical, honest, and professional. The trial process was tedious at times and Mr. Silva is extremely confident and knowledgeable which made me very relieved to watch him work on my behalf. The Judge, court room staff, and even the DA all showed great respect for him. To the jury he came across as an advocate for justice. Mr. Silva never made me feel like my case wasn't important. He was very responsive to my calls and kept me informed. I believe many attorneys will take your money, give you some weak advice, and get ready to move onto the next case, but Mr. Silva was extremely thorough and worked on the many details of my case until the very end. I was definitely happy he was on my side watching him work in the court room. I highly recommend Patrick Silva to anyone looking for an attorney and, although I don't plan on ever needing his services again, he would be my first call without hesitation. He's a worker and a fighter and has my respect for what he has done to help me and my family.

Got my Case Dismissed!

THIS IS WHAT DANIEL N. HAD TO SAY ABOUT MY SERVICES:     3rd Dui in less than ten years

I was charged with a 3rd DUI in ten years, driving on a suspended license, and violation of my summary probation. With a BAC of .14 and two previous DUI's within ten years, in two different counties, attorney Silva not only won my DMV hearing, but then proceeded to reduce a 3rd DUI in ten years charge, in Riverside County, down to a misdemeanor drunk in public with no violation of probation, no jail time, and a fine of 500 dollars. Attorney Silva handled my case with the utmost professionalism and proposed an ambitious plan of attack. Attorney Silva advised that we go straight to trial and that he was confident he could beat this. Taking into account his decade plus years of experience in the field, I put my faith in Attorney Silva's judgment and expertise, and I ponied up for trial. A few weeks before the trial, the DA contacted Attorney Silva and Silva negotiated what we would plead to. If you are willing to step into the arena, Attorney Silva will champion your cause. In summation, Attorney Silva has the gumption and the expertise to secure you the best possible outcome of your case.

Mr. Silva was very honest with me from the day I met him. He did not guarantee anything, but made me feel comfortable that he would do his best. The results proved he is a man with integrity. My DUI case was dismissed by DMV, and the courts, due to no probable cause. This literally saved my life, because this had a great impact on my job. I was able to continue work without any issues thanks to Mr. Silva and him team. I would recommenced anyone that finds themselves in a DUI\DWI situation please contact the office of Mr Silva and his team first. #thebestlawyer
