Secretary of the legislative committees in the General Council (Parliament of Andorra). Practicing lawyer since 1999, when he founded the firm Silvestre Attorneys at Law.

In spite of his post- graduate training in International Law and European Community Law at the Diplomatic School in Madrid, the European Commission (Brussels), the Court of Justice of the EU (Luxembourg) and the European Court of Human Rights (Strasbourg), his career path has focused upon the exercise of Law before the Courts in Andorra.

Both his knowledge in systems engineering and the experience he has acquired from the exercise of Law have allowed him to defend several cases of violations of fundamental rights (right to privacy, professional secrecy, secrecy of communications) due to malpractice.

Participant in lectures and seminars on computer security, data protection and economic crimes held by the General Council, the Government of Andorra, the Chamber of Commerce and the Andorra Bar Association.
