Arrested for DUI? Find Out What Everyone Should Know Before Talking to the Judge, Hiring an Attorney, Pleading Guilty or Going to Trial. 

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. 

This story is about Tony. 
 
When Tony first came to me he was telling me the story about the cops stopping him for speeding, not having tags and how he failed all the field sobriety test. Tony’s breath results came back close a .09. When I got the dash camera from the CHP vehicle I noticed something interesting. The officers radar was utilized on a downward slope which according to CHP experts can produce a false radar reading. What I then did is I took the dash camera and I looked at certain points on the video, in this case a couple streets. From street A to Street B I measured the feet using google maps and the distance measuring device they have on there.  What I then did was I took the number of feet traveled between the two streets divided by the number of seconds it took to travel that distance, I multiplied it by 36 hundred which is the number of seconds in an hour and then I divided it by 5280 which is the number off feet in a mile. That gave me his miles per hour. What I concluded was Tony was traveling about 39 miles an hour in a 45 mile an hour zone. What I then did was file a motion to suppress penal code 1538.5 at the hearing the district attorney realized we where correct in our speed estimation and were able to dismiss the Dui charges after Tony took a no contest plea to reckless driving, he paid a $260 dollar fine, he did no DMV classes, he didn’t do any community service, he didn’t have his license taken away and the end of the day this was a good result for hard working young man.

(I RECEIVED THIS EMAIL FROM ANOTHER ATTORNEY) 
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!

Nobody wants an attorney, everyone needs an attorney. As I was laying down to sleep tonight thanking God above for all of my blessings Mr Silva popped into my head once again. This time I thought oh my gosh I still haven't given a review and I have intended to. My case has been over for over four months and yes I am still thankful. I can't say enough about him and his crew. I live in Texas and my offenses happened of course in California not knowing anyone for word-of-mouth by family or friends I was forced to find my attorney via website and alot of prayer. First thoughts were "so all these attorneys with awesome websites must be the ones who can't perform in court and need to boast" or vice versa "they don't necessarily suck but they're not good enough because they can't afford a good website" you get it. Here's your answer badass website badass attorney. Mr Silva review.. simple this guy is smart he knows exactly what he's doing he works very hard for you. Relentless to say the least he follows the law and he holds the law accountable. From the beginning to the end this guy is exceptional he's good at what he does believe it. I hired him for the drivers Court part of it and for the criminal court part. Mr Silva I'm sure would disagree and say that he was only doing his job but I win this one, he went above and beyond. Even though I paid him I feel like I owe this guy, Truly above and beyond. Honest, real, smart, compassionate, relentless, and did I mention smart. Thx Silva you da man!

Mr Silva is one of only a few Lawyers who have a perfect five star reviews on Avvo and Google
4/4/2018
Highly recommend - professional and thorough - Patrick truly cared about helping me.
I carried out an extensive search throughout Southern California for the best attorney to handle my first and only DUI case. After countless attorney consultations and strategy sessions, I can say that Patrick is one of a kind.
Mr. Silva's knowledge, passion, and professionalism are unique. He is a breath of fresh air in a field that is inundated with attorneys who are more interested in landing clients and refining their websites than they are with handling their client's legal issues.
Patrick's knowledge, energy, professionalism, ability, and intelligence separate him from the pack. Good luck with your search and I highly recommend reaching out to Mr. Silva's office to discuss your legal matter.

DUI and DMV question ?

Q. I got a DUI in January and I went to court but they said they are still waiting for the results so they rescheduled my court date. I went to the DMV because my license was already suspended before the DUI ( I didn’t know) and the DMV told me I needed a SR-22 and to pay my reissue fee and I will have my license back. 
So I’m curious to know, since it is showing at the DMV that I have a DUI, does this automatically mean my blood results came back over 0.08 ? 
I am trying to figure this out before I get a lawyer. What can a lawyer do for someone with a first DUI ? Expunge it ? Or somehow make it now show on my record? Or?


A. The blood results may or may not be ready. For violation dates on or after 1/1/2019, you may be eligible for a CDL before anything actually happens at DMV or in court. SB1046 is now the law and allows persons arrested for DUI to avoid any actual suspension time by getting an SR22, enrolling in a DUI school, putting a breath machine (IID) on their car and paying DMV fees.

If your license was suspended for some other reason you'd need to clear that problem up first.

Call DMV at (916) 657-6525 and confirm what you need to do.

A good DUI lawyer will help you understand what's happening and help guide you through the process. There isn't a way for attorneys to make guarantees about the outcome of a case without getting involved. Call a couple for a free case evaluation and you'll have a little more to go on.

I am a first time DUI offender and in the beginning I had no idea what I was supposed to do. I had received so many letters in my mailbox from lawyers trying to take on my case regarding my DUI. Patrick’s mail had stood out from 25 mails I would receive weekly. When I first met Patrick, it was on a Saturday, he made time for me on his day off. He helped ease my stress and told me not to worry about it, to go on living my life normally, that he would handle my case and appear on my behalf. That is exactly what I did, I did not stress one bit. Patrick had my complete trust and I knew he would fight for me. Patrick is truly a live savior, he is professional, experienced and a great lawyer. His assistant is amazing as well, whenever I had questions regarding my case she was quick to pull my file and keep me updated. Patrick got me off on a wet reckless, 25hrs of community service, and DUI classes. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in the same shoes I am. 
Thank you Patrick Silva

Hire a 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 theDatamaster 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.

​I have my third violation on probation, what is going to happen?

Hello this is Attorney Patrick Silva with another answer to one of your fequently asked questions.

Had a recent questions regarding, I have my the third violation on probation whats going to happen? If you violate a first or second time usually the courts don't instill to much punishment, they just might give some additional work release, they might have you do some more community service pay a higher fine. On a third violation the judge is going to take alot harder look at why you are not doing what the court told you to do.  i would recommed getting in comtact with the original attorney that help you and seeing what his recommendations might be because he'll have the best knowledge about the facts of your case. If you have some type of extenuating circumstances like you've been out of school, you've had a death or illness in the family, you have transportation problems or life is just throwing you alot of curve balls. The judge is willing to listen, just be honest explain yourself and don't delay, dont wait till 1, 2 or 3 years goes by get yourself on calender talk to the judge and explain the situation. 


This Attorney Silva Have a Great Day.

Were my Miranda Rights violated?

Hello this is Attorney Patrick Silva here, with another answer to one of your frequently asked questions. Many times I'm asked, did the officer violate my Miranda rights. Under Miranda an officer is required to read you your Miranda rights when you are detained and when he asks you questions to which your answers would be incriminating. Let's think about it were you free to leave when he stopped you on the side of thwe road, No. Did he ask you one hundred questions about what you had done that night, Yes. My opinion is that the officer was required to read you your Miranda rights at that point in time. This is Attorney Patrick Silva have a nice day.
