If I handle your case I can promise 2 things, I am really really good at what I do, and I will work hard for you. My best day as an attorney happened when I had a profound impact on a client's life. Recently, I saved the job of a commercial truck driver. I kept his family from being put out on the street. Judge said I was one of the best DUI Lawyers he had seen in 30 years.   ONLINE REVIEWS    My name is David and when I got my 3rd DUI I hired Pat Silva to fight for me and he did! He got my 3rd DUI dropped, all I had to do was plead no contest to a few moving violations. I had a bac of .17 and he still got it dropped that's why I call him the specialist!


Patrick J. Silva DUI Defense Attorneys


Hi Patrick -

  I made friends with the court reporter  during my trial and we got to talking about  DUIs. She has reported a lot of DUI cases. I  asked her who, in her opinion, were some  of the best DUI defense attorneys she has  seen try DUI cases, and she said PATRICK  SILVA!  Thought you might like to know  this! Great job on your trial!

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise
Recently the California Dui Lawyers Association had there annual meeting up in San Francisco, I did not plan on attending this meeting because we were have a birthday party for Jordan that weekend. 
About 2 weeks prior to the meeting I got a few texts from the president saying “hey you coming to the meeting,” I text back no not this year. A couple of days later he sent another text saying “hey you should really come,” I said hey sorry can’t do it this year. Well the meeting date came and on that particular day I happened to go out earlier in the morning for a training ride because I had a 100 mile race coming up, so I went did about 80 miles. When I got home I took a shower and then was kind of relaxing just trying to let my body recoup a little bit and then my phone started blowing up, I got about 4 or 5 text in a row. Well unbeknownst to me I was awarded what is called the California Dui Lawyer Association President’s Award because of my hard work and dedication to Dui Law Defense. I am both humbled and surprised to receive this prestigious award from my CDLA President Jeff Boll.

Over the last 16 years I have had dozens of clients, if not hundreds, tell me that once they hired our law firm that it  "felt like a weight had been lifted" off of their shoulders.  As your attorney we will appear in court on your behalf, this reduces your stress level and time off of work. We will also present your case in front of the DMV at your APS Hearing. 

The breath machine is designed to    capture air from the smallest air sacs in  your lungs. One of the problems with breath testing is that the air that is actually tested may be from the upper airway. This can result in a false high reading.

Why I Do What I Do

Why am I a dui lawyer? I am here to fight for the little guy, to challenge the status quo, to stand up to big brother, to confront the wrongful conduct of the government, to ensure your Miranda right were honored, to question the validity of the arrest, to ensure that your constitutional rights were not violated, to prove that blood is flawed and breath science is quackery, that is why I do what I do. 


I have represented:
Medical Doctors

Police Officers
Truck Drivers
Ph.D Professors

Real Estate Agents
Hard working men & women
Business Executives

 Dangers of Breath Testing?  If you blow  into a breath machine during the  absorption phase your breath may be  overestimated by 250 percent.  This  means that a .12 reading on the machine  can actually be a .03 in your blood.

Good morning, attorney Patrick Silva here with another success story. This one happens to do with felony DUIs. Now, once you have one felony DUI and you pled guilty to that felony DUI, any subsequent DUI, even if you get pulled over for tinted window and you're a .08 or .07 guess what? The District Attorney's going to file that one as a felony also.
Now that's a general rule. There's ways to avoid that, but we're not going to talk about that. So here's a story. A friend of mine, very good friend of mine, known him for 30 years, calls me up and he says, "Hey, I got a friend, he needs some serious help on a DUI matter."
Now, this friend had caught a felony DUI umpteen years ago. It wasn't, let's say 15 years ago, and what happened that his passenger got a bloody nose. Well, he pled to a DUI because there was an accident felony, and then he went through a checkpoint and the second one was a felony. Now, the first time he went to jail, to prison for 16 months. The second time he went to prison for two years, and then he's rolling through a checkpoint and they filed that as a felony. Now he came to me and he was like, "Hey, just, you know, try to keep me out of jail long enough for me to get to pension age and I'll go do three years."
Well, that's not my style. What ended up happening is we ended up getting my client into drug court, drug treatment. He didn't have a drug problem, but he had an alcohol problem. I had a great DA and a great judge that said, "Yes, let him in." And what's going to happen is he's not going to do any prison time. So he's not doing prison. He's not doing jail time. He's not picking up trash on the weekend. He's going to do the 18-month class. He's going to pee in a bottle, take all these tests and get counseling and get help, but he's not going to prison. So ultimately that was a huge success.
One, it saved his job, saved hi family, saved his house. So it can be done with hard work, determination. And again, these are success stories. These are just illustrations of the results that happen because of the hard work I do. They're not a promise or a guarantee of what I might achieve in the future, because every case is different. If you want consultation, give us a call, 909-798-1500. Have a great day.

Hire a San Bernardino DUI Lawyer from the best DUI law firm and get the dui facts about the drunk driving myths. A quick story, the other day I was in a DMV hearing and I was cross examining the officer. Some of the highlights made me almost laugh outload. The officer could not identify the 3 SFST. As you read this you probably already know that they are the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN), Walk and Turn (WAT), and the One Leg Stand (OLS). As we went through the cross examination the officer could not identify the 3 validating clues in the HGN, he did not know how many clues were needed to believe that my client might have been over a .08. The Officer did not know the 8 clues associated with the WAT, in fact he made up other clues as he went along. I did finally start to smurk as he failed to understand the OLS or the 4 clues associated with that test. Hire a DUI lawyer from the best dui law firm and get the dui facts about the drunk driving myths. What was really funny was that 2 weeks after the officer arrested my client he went to a SFST class. This was when my cross really got interesting. As we went through his failures in giving the SFST he had to agree that he gave the SFST wrong on several, several occasions. I also have over 15 hours of training on the Datamaster DMT breath machine. I am the owner of the Alcosensor IV PAS breath machine which is the most widely used roadside breath tester in So. Cal.
