ATTORNEYS FOR
VICTIMS OF CATASTROPHIC INJURIES

Our injury lawyers firm secured a multimillion-dollar award for the parents of a child injured in a golf cart accident.

A Miami-based state court issued a $50,000,000.00 ruling in favor of parents whose son, aged 12, was thrown out of a golf cart following a collision with a car. This led to a severe head injury. Attorney Paul Jon Layne, a partner at Silva & Silva in Coral Gables, served as one of the lawyers for the parents. Their child was in the golf cart driven by the defendant’s niece. “You have to be persistent and not give up,” Layne remarked. “Because we have stuck to the case, we’ve been able to complete our service to the client at the state court level, and through our persistence, we continue to fight through that state court case.”

ATTORNEYS FOR
VICTIMS OF SURFSIDE CONDO COLLAPSE

Our personal injury law firm was appointed to the Plaintiffs’ leadership team in the litigation surrounding the Champlain Towers South Condominium Collapse. 

Our personal injury and wrongful death lawyers filed lawsuits on behalf of our clients naming 15 defendants.  We helped recover over $1,200,000,000 (1.2 billion dollars) for the persons and the families that were harmed by this catastrophic event. Here is what Miami-Date County Circuit Court Judge Michael A. Hanzman had to say about Carlos and Jorge Silva:

“[T]he Silva brothers, when I say they bled for these clients, they took a case that court’s initial reaction was “this guy’s get nothing, nothing, getting nothing” and I’ll let them check the box for a million dollars but in all likelihood he’s not getting anything. And they asked for a continuance, they gathered evidence, they represented this client, and they did a marvelous job. They went all out for every client. They bled for every client. They cried with every client . . . .”

our LAW FIRM
YOUR BEST CHOICE

Since 1992, Silva & Silva, P.A. has represented victims of wrongful and tortious conduct, concentrating exclusively on complex litigation.

Our Firm was founded by Carlos E. Silva and Jorge E. Silva, whose inspiration to challenge the establishment came through a personal tragedy.

The Silva brothers were then determined to advocate claims on behalf of victims.

Driven by their loss, Carlos and Jorge attended law school, during which they learned how to use the law as a means to right the wrongs of those injured, disabled, or killed at the hands of negligent professionals, organizations, and individuals.They devoted themselves to creating a successful national and international law practice with the intellectual and financial resources necessary to provide their clients with the most effective and competent representation.
