Not only did Matt work fast on my issue but he took my current medical condition into consideration and gave me a affordable rate that I could work with. My inquiries were answered by the skillful staff quickly and completely. I would highly recommend Matt and his staff for any legal needs. Thank you, Matt.
Matt and his team treated me and my wife with respect and were great at handling our case. I felt that Matt Went above and beyond gathering the necessary evidence it took to successfully win the case.
Matt Silva is highly knowledgable and give sound legal a advice. I have used him from everything from divorce to corporate issues.
I hired Mr. Silva to represent me in Jacksonville, NC one year and seven months ago. I was charged with second offense DWI and first offense DWLR. I was facing fairly serious charges with serious consequences so I knew I had to hire the best lawyer I could. I talked to Mr. Silva in person shortly after I called his office. After reviewing my file he informed me that will try his best to win this case. Mr. Silvia's prior background in procecuting cases makes him a great defense lawyer. My case lasted a year and seven months and I only had to appear one time. This was a huge benefit since I am a marine. Mr. Silva was able to get both of my charges dropped completely.
I hired Mr. Silva in 2012 for DUI charges. He was very easy to work with. Very friendly and knowledgeable. I would not recommend anyone else for this type of case. I was very happy with the service he provided.
Mr. Silva was excellent about explaining my situation to me. My only complaint about Silva's service is that since I live 3000 miles away I was not properly informed. This problem I think was caused by lack of communication. Through this miscommunication Silva advocated for my to be seen by a judge during a trial that was in progress. Overall I was pretty satisfied with his service.
I was in Jacksonville North Carolina one year ago. I was traveling to visit friends and drove from NY to NC on a short period of time. I pulled into a driveway after hanging with my friend to put directions in my phone and next thing I know a random woman pulled-in behind me speaking on the phone to someone, long behold it was the sheriff department. I had no idea what was going on, the police officer proceeded with DUI/DWI procedures with me and I was not happy with it at all. I have been pulled over before, at least not while I am not driving the vehicle or in the vehicle, I had out-of-state license plates and not aware of my surrounding, so because I refused the Alcohol Breath Test he arrested me. I was so confused and needed some help on what just happened and what was I going to do from this point. I returned to NY in the next few days and like most, I received lots mail from other Attorneys mailing me asking to represent me. I called many of them in that town, they did not have a set price and some did not make feel confident as if they would have my best interest at heart. I finally spoke with Mr. Silva’s office which he made me feel like my situation was unique and he wanted to represent me and offered me a set price for my case not a penny more. I chose him base on his knowledge, years of experience as prosecutor and he was very up front and was willing to talk to me about the case for while without charging me for anything. I had a long hard year of this case, but I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Mr. Silva has been nothing short of amazing, professional throughout the whole process, his legal teams are the best; I was always greeted with a wonderful greeting on the phone and great service by Amber and his staff. I would highly recommend Mr. Silva. Thank you!
My son was stationed in North Carolina in the Marine Corps and was arrested and charged with 5 felonies,although he was never in any previous trouble the degree of the charges were extreme and he was looking at mandatory jail time. We live in Florida and when we looked into lawyers in North Carolina Mr.Silva had great reviews,we called him and he was honest about the situation and what he could do for us ,we put our faith into him from states away knowing nothing about north Carolina laws, when we met at the jail in person he gave me hope and spoke truthfully about the case, he was extremely nice to us and our son making sure my son was okay daily while he was in jail and very knowledgeable about my son's situation, my son had a 250000 secured bond and only spent 3 weeks in jail and was released at 1200 dollars bond, Mr.Silva took care of our legal issues without us having to return to North Carolina ,his charges were dropped to misdemeanors and only received unsupervised probation and court fees, my son almost lost many years of his life for a childish mistake ,so to us Mr.Silva was a true blessing and we are truly grateful to him for his hard work, we will never forget him and believe he is worth every penny...he is the man to have on your side......THANK YOU MR.SILVA !!!!!
He is the best when you talk to him he make you fell that he is the best and star work you case right a way with consedration more then you self he will be the best Attorny in town ever
I had dealt w/ a few attorneys concerning the same matter and he demonstrated more competence and sincere desire to help than any others. He provided us some comforting but realistic expectations for our potentially devastating situation and educated us on the process and how the court system works. I would highly recommend Matt for any legal matter for which he could represent you for.
