Working for The County of Los Angeles
Prior to founding the firm, Silva was a civil servant representing indigent clients who could not afford an attorney. She served the Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office for over 7 years and represented thousands of clients in virtually every aspect of criminal and juvenile law–from infractions to misdemeanors and felonies. Silva won recognition for her tireless representation of minors and won many cases for children who were thrusted into a criminal justice system they were fearful of–getting their cases dismissed and their records clean. She has won countless cases and earned hundreds of dismissals for her juvenile and adult clients alike.

She joined the Public Defenders’ Office because she believes in the right of all people, regardless of income, to have the best representation possible when confronted with criminal charges. She loved and respected her clients, but wanted to create her own legacy by starting her own law firm.

Prior to entering the Public Defender’s Office, Silva worked for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, where she clerked and assisted in prosecuting countless criminal offenses, including high profile white collar crime cases. She handled various types of hearings in virtually every aspect of criminal law. It was this experience working with the LA District Attorney’s office where she realized the importance of representing those charged in the criminal justice system. Understanding their stories and trying to protect people from the overreaching and overwhelming power of the government and police. Her passion in protecting her clients has always fueled her success. As can be heard in the hallways of her offices, “Don’t be scared, be EMPOWERED.”
