If you don’t want to lose, this is your man
I received a terrible DWI at a checkpoint. I hired Matt Silva and he took care of everything….I literally didn’t have to do anything. Normally DWI/DUI’s can linger in the court system for years, I made it extremely clear that my job was on the line and it had to be heard quickly. It only took a few months before my case went before a judge. Mr. Silva did his homework and shut it tf down for me in court and had everyone but me looking stupid. He was able to get my DWI reduced to a much lower sentence. If it wasn’t for him I would have been fired, license gone for a year, and either community service/jail time. Could not have been happier; definitely recommend.
Jacksonville’s Best Criminal Attorney
Most reviews for attorneys are based on the outcome of the case and I can say that regardless of the outcome of my case, Mr. Silva exceeded my expectations with his dedication, professionalism, honesty, and knowledge of the criminal court system and it’s laws. During the course of my case Mr. Silva and his staff remained in constant communication with me and relayed important information about my case and what I could expect. Mr. Silvia’s study of the law and his vast knowledge of case law makes him a valuable asset to anyone facing a criminal court proceeding. I would highly recommend Mr. Silva and his staff.

Thanks, man! I am so happy your case was dismissed. I know this was the longest road you had to travel, but I am happy with the outcome. I hope you never need my help again, but if you know someone that does, send them my way! Best of luck on all your future endeavors!
Outstanding Performance and Professionalism
Mr. Silva created an atmosphere of confidence and understanding. From the initial meeting, long stents of continuances due to COVID, and through the end Mr. Silva always provided confidence and reassurance to me and my family. A temporary laps in judgement on my part turned into what seemed like a worst case scenario for me and my family. Mr. Silva saw it for what it was, an honest mistake. And with this mindset, he went to work defending me. Through his years of experience, his meticulous attention to detail and methodical execution of judicial procedures, Mr. Silva was able to persuaded the court that forgiveness not penalty was the justice I would receive. Rightfully so, debt was owed to the court in form of monetary payment, but that was the extent of punishment. For this, I can not thank or praise Mr. Silva and his team enough. My family and I are truly blessed to have such a wonderful lawyer and legal team as them. Mr. Silva will always fight for his clients through legal means with results surpassing expectations.

Ideal Legal Representation
The ideal vision of legal representation. Absolutely amazing. From reading reviews i know that either your first few words are a yes or a no. For Mr. Silva i can say it's an absolute yes. If you have a hole punched in your boat either: you need someone to help shovel the water out or to repair the hole. In my situation Mr. Silva did both. I am beyond grateful for more than my particular outcome, (which was positive) but his over all attention to my specific circumstances. One thing that became overwhelming apparent is how unfair the system can be to individuals. Mr. Silva and his staff made exceeding effort to understand and validate my individual circumstances. To me that was invaluable. My particular case took 3 yrs to resolve, and during that entire time Mr. Silva and his team treated me as if i had just walked through the door, equally as important and urgent as anyone else. I am so grateful to his service and his entire team from the communication of the front office to himself. Any questions or corcerns i had were met with understanding and answer. At no point during the process did i feel like i was alone or 'in the dark'. I always felt as though i had someone on my side. Mr. Silva dedicated himself and his team for 3 years to ensure that i had the best possible outcome for my situation. When i envision legal representation at its 'ideal' Mr. Silva encompasses that vision fully.

The Absolute Best
Mr, Silva and his team helped me through a time in my life when I made a huge mistake and needed help to get out of it. He does not waste your time, and knows when you have a case he can help you fight. Mr. Silva was incredible helpful, kind, and understanding of my situation, and with his help, I walked away with zero charges and a clean slate. Watching him in the court room was incredibly impressive. He knew the Judge and when to move forward, but also when to stop. I couldn't be more happy and grateful for his help and the outcome. I will always recommend SKA Lawyers, but especially Matt Silva, if I ever hear of anyone in the Onslow County area in trouble because this is a man that will have your back and help you get through it. Thank you again Mr. Silva, I will appreciate everything you have done for me forever.

THE DWI Lawyer
Matt Silva is THE attorney for Onslow County DWI’s. He knows all the judges that you want your case in front of, and the judges/court officials all know and respect him. He successfully defended my own case. I appreciate his professionalism and expertise, they were second to none. Far and above the best DWI lawyer around.

Professional and informational
During the entire process, Matt Silva has been extremely professional. He has taken time to explain all the circumstances with my case and what it actually means. Most of the paperwork I have received from the state made little sense. Mr. Silva made a point to explain the many options that were available and how they could affect me. He gave his professional opinion, but left the decision for me on how we would proceed. His staff has also handled my case amazingly.

DUI, Leaving the Scene, and Failure To Report
Aggressive, proficient and on point! Constant counseling on best approach and best actions to take going forward. A true professional in a court room. Mr. Silva was able to get all three of my chargers dropped without question. Additionally, he is doing everything to get it all expunged. He has my highest recommendation.
