What are your areas of practice?

We are a general practice law firm. However, we limit our focus to areas where we have gained particular experience and success over the years. Whether navigating a difficult divorce, defending allegations of serious criminal misconduct, or litigating a civil case, we will execute winning legal strategies in a cost-effective manner.

Tell me about your personalities. Are you... AGGRESSIVE?

Better. We are smart. We are creative thinkers. We know how to listen and take into account all opinions that reach us. We know that effective litigators are not "aggressive" table bangers. Instead, we rely on intellect, agility and determination to succeed.

What can I expect at my initial consultation?

We will start by learning who you are, where you have been, and where you want to go. We start this way because every case is unique, and must be cast in a way that is relatable and persuasive. We will consider the laws that apply to your case and discuss legal strategies that may help you achieve your goals. Consultations generally run 1-2 hours and can be booked at one of our offices, by video or by telephone.

Yes, we charge for initial consultations. The value of our meeting will be self-evident when you meet us. We don't need to lure clients in with incentives such as free consultations. However, if you do choose to work with us we will credit the consultation fee back to you on your first invoice.

What does it cost to retain Silva / Salinas?

It costs what it costs because it's worth the price. Depending on your type of case we may offer you an hourly billing arrangement, flat fee or contingency fee. We will discuss our fees and payment options with you during your initial consultation.
