Silva Megerditchian is a skilled attorney who formed and manages the Law Office of Silva L. Megerditchian. After Silva graduated from law school, she briefly worked for a private firm where she handled criminal matters, both state and federal, and civil litigation where she handled divorce and personal injury law. Prior to founding the firm, she 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. Prior to entering the Public Defender’s Office, Silva also 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 and need of representing Americans charged in the criminal justice system. Her passion in protecting her clients fueled her success.
Prior to her successful law career, Silva was a prominent Producer for a nationally syndicated radio talk show. She won praise and accolades for her work and achievements as a producer, and dealt with many aspects of the entertainment and political worlds, including dealing with high profile celebrities and elite political players. A dynamic individual, Silva not only excelled in a male driven environment, but managed to balance her demanding work schedule with an equally demanding law school curriculum. From being an on-air commentator to a behind the scenes producer and manager, Silva had made herself a reputation of a hard worker with a keen ability to make last minute decisions that benefited the program with high ratings and countless advertisers which benefited corporate interests.
While in law school, Silva also excelled in the prestigious Moot Court program where she competed in advocacy competitions all over the United States. She continues to mentor youth in their quest to become successful advocates and trial attorneys by donating her time and knowledge to the program.
Silva has an international background as well. She is fluent in the Armenian language and conversational Spanish. She was born to a Syrian Armenian mother and a Lebanese Armenian father and studied abroad. Her immigrant parents taught her the importance of working hard and striving for the American Dream.
In addition to her law practice, Silva is a skilled violinist and passionate about athletics. She was a certified personal trainer for years. Silva’s goals are simple: to provide her clients personal and warm representation during her clients’ darkest hours; and to provide her clients the best legal defense while protecting them from the powerful and overwhelming prosecutorial arm of the government.
“I provide our clients support, dedication and knowledge in criminal defense matters and am dedicated to assisting those in their darkest hour of their lives, facing the possibility of losing their freedom, family and assets. With personal support and strong advocacy I will always fight for our clients’ freedom.”
