  • Justin Petrie

    Mr. Silva is a fantastic lawyer in the area of consumer protection. The foundation of his practice is customer service and client relations. When his clients have already been taken advantage of, great customer service and proper explanations of the process go a long way. On top of that, Mr. Silva is incredibly passionate about the rights of his clients. Whether they've been foreclosed, taken advantage of by a local or national business, or have drawn the short end of the stick in a business dealing, Mr. Silva does his all to make things right.
