Matt broke out hand books and regulations and such that neither the arresting officer nor the ADA knew about. Kinda made them look dumb in front of what could have been a jury that buried any other lawyers client. They came back inside of an hour with a non-guilty. If I ever need council again, He's the man. Highly recommended.

I came to Mr Silva after a rough patch in my road. 2 dui's within 3 months...he always made me feel at ease...because I was embarrassed and ashamed of myself. He helped me tremendously! My first one I was (rightfully) convicted of and the second one he was going to try and the da knocked it down to careless and reckless. Which means I only have one dui on my record and can move on with my life. I would and have recommended him to my friends and have nothing to say but positive things about what Mr. Silva has done for me! (He also helped my daughter on a different traffic case and had everything dismissed for her!!!)

Matthew Silva is an outstanding lawyer, the best in Jacksonville NC by far. He was able to get my case dismissed within a week after I was charged! I was looking at some serious consequences from this charge of assault. Me being in the military I couldn't have this interfere with my job, which could have resulted in me getting discharged. He assured me he could get it dismissed and that's what he did, and fast! Would definitely recommend him to anyone, and would choose him again in a heartbeat. Thank you again Mr. Silva!

Our 17 year old son found himself facing some potentially serious charges. He had never been in any trouble before and has been planning on going into the medical field via the military for some years now. These charges could have derailed those plans if not appropriately and expeditiously handled. We went into Mr. Silvia's office scared and not knowing what to expect. Leaving our intial consultation we knew that our son was in good hands and that we could rest assured that Mr. Silvia would do all in his power to assure that our son could continue on with his plans in life without a criminal conviction. The case was handled quicker than expected and the entire case ended up being dismissed due to the experience and intimate knowledge Mr. Silvia has of the judicial system. Our son now has the opportunity to graduate high school this year and proceed forward with his life goals thanks to Mr. Silvia. I will highly recommend him to anyone I encounter who has legal needs.

Mr. Silva was straight forward right off the bat. He did not try to sugar coat anything. He's very polite and an excellent lawyer. Everything he would tell me would happen, happened. My wife bumped a car in the parking lot and didn't think there was damaged so she left. A bystander called the police. The person whose car was hit did not press charges, however, NC did. A friend who is a lawyer in our hometown told us not to bring our car in, so I told the police I wouldn't bring it in. However, he could not represent us in NC, so I got charged with "resist, obstruct, delay". He was very honest with us and had a great personality. He got everything dropped and I would use him again in a heartbeat. We have recommended him to others and will continue to so. This is the first time both of us have had to get a lawyer or had any issues with the law and he made it very easy to follow and broke things down for us. He even went over our meeting time to discuss our questions/concerns which made us feel very special. Excellent Lawyer!!

Upon recommendation from a family friend, we went to see Matt Silva and he was everything she said he was; professional, attentive and extremely knowledgeable. He answered our questions, emails and always made the time to see us even when he had no time. My sons case was very complicated but Mr. Silva agreed to take it on. I'm not sure it was what he expected, but he stuck it out with us til the very end. Several things came up during our case, making it very difficult, but Mr. Silva never gave up on us nor my son. The outcome was more than we ever anticipated or expected, much to our favor. I can't thank Mr. Silva enough, nor can we ever thank his devoted staff, Melissa and all the girls. They were always very kind, encouraging and always knew what was going on with our sons case. They kept us informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend Matt Silva. He will definitely push and find a way to get you the best outcome possible. We would definitely use him again, indeed if he would have us! Thank you for everything.

Mr. Silva is a kind, honest, open minded individual that did not hesitate to sit down with me and see if my case could be won. He was patient and answered all of my questions and listed in detail what we needed to get done in order for the expungement to happen. He worked tirelessly with his staff and the DA office until finally we had a court date. He was a professional when in court and presented the facts only, he did not sugarcoat anything. In the end with him as my lawyer I received the expungement that I have been waiting for.

Mr. Silva was able to win my case against a DWI charge, due to my situation it took a little bit of time, however, in the end, it was worth the wait.
