13 years of practicing criminal law is what we call experienced. His pro bono contributions here show a genuine desire to help potential clients and a remarkable knowledge of both the law and procedure. Client reviews are stellar. READ THEM! Do yourself a favor if you are in or near San Bernardino and need a DUI attorney schedule a consultation with him first.

I endorse this lawyer. Patrick is a very hard working attorney. He earns his fee and then some. He works hard for his clients and fights to get just results. I've seen Patrick win Motions to Suppress that I thought were nearly impossible to win. Once the Motion was granted, he would get the case dismissed. This guy knows what he is doing and what he is talking about!

Patrick Silva is not only one of the most courageous attorneys I know, he is also one of the most gracious people I have had the privilege to meet. Patrick has always had time to help me every time I have called upon him with a question. He does the same for his clients. Patrick loves his work and works equally hard on each case. He excels in the courtroom as a trial attorney, having mastered the rhetorical skills of argumentation and persuasion as well as having developed a sense of presence that speaks "trust" to the jury. I'd hire him in a heartbeat. Patrick spent an evening teaching my USC students about talking to juries. They left class that night so impressed. The students instantly knew Mr. Silva is a trial attorney. They also knew he has mastered the complexities of DUI/DWI science. More importantly, they appreciated the down to earth interpersonal connections Patrick communicated. I learn a lot from Patrick Silva. He's a great trial attorney.

Patrick Silva is a rare breed of an attorney. He truly cares for his clients and works diligently to achieve the best possible results. He is well respected by the Judges, his peers and the prosecutors. In trial, Patrick Silva is a real warrior achieving many not-guilty verdicts on cases the District Attorneys don't felt sure they would win. I highly endorse Mr. Silva and have referred him several clients in the past. He is very experienced, compassionate and keeps up with the latest changes in the law. As a criminal defense and DUI lawyer, Patrick Silva is one of the best.

Patrick fights hard for his clients. I've seen him expose dishonest cops on cross-examination and win trials with intelligence, creativity, and impeccable integrity. He is worth far more than what he charges clients.
