Get's it done!
I think she's on her 4th case for our family. We own the condo from hell. The association just doesn't want to do what it is suppose to, so Leslie makes them. Thanks, Leslie!

Affordable Excellence -- Exceptional Achievement!
The Silva Law Group represented us superbly in a challenging, precedent-setting action in an area of emerging law. Leslie Silva and Christopher Silva were strong, resourceful, innovative advocates for us throughout a demanding legal process. They worked tirelessly and efficiently toward our best legal interests while always mindful of our personal circumstances and goals. The Silvas’ dedication, expertise and high level of professional performance were impressive and effective. Their interpersonal skills and understanding of human nature were assets in all areas of legal interaction. Their perception and guidance, along with their unusual accessibility and readiness to explain clearly and discuss substantively, were invaluable as we navigated a daunting legal system. The Silvas’ noteworthy accomplishments in the case are of lasting significance. The Silva Law Group is a credit to the legal profession. It was a privilege to be their clients, and it is a privilege to recommend them.

The Only Lawyer You Need
My story is of domestic abuse/divorce. After my initial meeting with Leslie, I walked away feeling like a brand new woman. She provided me with a sense of power and the knowledge that she would be with me every step of the way. After a very stressful few years, my divorce was finalized. Not only is she very knowledgeable in her field, she is responsive, professional, empathetic and now a friend. I can't imagine looking for another attorney and have recently used her services to create a will.

Gives Lawyers a Good Name
Working with Leslie was a wonderful experience. Her professionalism, communication and legal knowledge/expertise were excellent. I felt completely confident leaving my matter in her hands and trusted her to keep me informed as needed. The process was quick and efficient, and outcome was favorable. In addition, Leslie takes a personal interest in her clients that is often unmatched by others in her profession. I would highly recommend her to others.

Everything you could want and/or need in a legal practice!
I have, and will continue to highly recommend Leslie Silva. I cannot thank the Silva Law Group enough for all that has been accomplished in my case. You asked questions when I didn't even realize I should, and fought on my, and my daughter's, behalf. I have always been kept well informed of the goings on of my case, and have every confidence that there is no better choice to handle my legal issues- both current and in the future.
