Excellent attorney
Jacqueline carried out all the buyer's side of a real estate purchase for me. She was diligent and professional. She dealt with the seller's attorney and cleared out all the obstacles and negotiated conditions. The closing was flawless.

Best Lawyer in town.
I've enjoyed the pleasure of working with Miss Jacqueline Salcina on numerous eviction cases for my tenants on different properties ranging from all out war against Section 8 for landlords abuse to standard rental evictions of late paying tenants. I was very impressed with her level of commitment towards my cases. She helped me to decipher all the legal jargon and was patient with me in answering all my questions regarding my tenants evictions. I would highly recommend her if you’re looking for a great real estate attorney in Florida that really cares about her clients and applies passion and perseverance towards her craft. Thank you for your continued services Miss Salcina and I hope to continue working with you in the future.

Great real estate attorney!
I was on the sell side of a recent real estate transaction, and Ms. Salcines was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire experience. She's responsive, efficient and just gets things done with minimal inconvenience and a high degree of competence. I've bought and sold a few properties before, and this was the smoothest of all closings. If you're looking for a real estate attorney (buy or sell side), I would highly recommend her.

The Best Attorney
I entered into a real estate contract without retaining an attorney to represent me and instead I agreed to use the Sellers’ attorney as the realtor had suggested. I raised concerns to be addressed within my inspection contingency period to which the sellers never responded. I was past my contingency period with a very large escrow already paid, an appraisal valuation that was questionably higher than my offer and my financing was already firmly in place. I reached out to Ms. Salcines 2 days after the inspection contingency period was past as I didn’t feel comfortable with the way the transaction was being managed. She responded to my email within 15 minutes asking for the contract. I retained Ms. Salcines the same day, and she immediately reached out to the Sellers’ attorney and the realtor introducing herself. She also spent a lot of time reviewing the communication between the realtor and I to understand if the transaction was being handled professionally and ethically. In summary, there were quite a number of issues/concerns identified by Ms. Salcines and I was knee deep in a terrible situation. This house was overvalued by ~$300k in the appraisal report and with no contingency left, I would be obligated to close. I am forever grateful to Ms. Salcines for an incredibly quick response, her professionalism and diligence. Within 2 days of retaining her, she was successful in getting the Sellers to cancel the contract refunding me 100% of the escrow. I will never go to a closing table from here onward or sign any contract without Ms. Salcines’. She is very knowledgeable, professional, reliable and attentive. I highly recommend her as she genuinely safeguards your interest like it is her own.

Look no further
We retained Jacqueline at the 11th hour to protect our interests in a deal that had taken a turn for the worst, we were very close to losing our deposit. Mrs. Salcines was 110% on top of things, she was available 24 hours of the day and was relentless in her efforts to get things straightened out. She communicated with all participants in the transaction on our behalf and she was tough on them, she has zero tolerance for negligence or lack of professionalism. I felt so comfortable and secure knowing that Mrs. Salcines was protecting our interests, we were in good hands . She successfully saw us through to closing. I wholeheartedly recommend Mrs. Salcines to anyone who needs legal advice or representation.

Excellency
Jacqueline Salcines is by far one of the best lawyers if not the best in Miami-Dade. All of my contracts are done by her, I have a level of trust that I doubt I'll ever have with another lawyer ever. She is very good at what she does and I hope we continue working together. Im 22 years old so I guess it will be for a long time with Gods help. I recommend her to everyone that asks for a good lawyer that takes her job seriously. Thank you Jackie! You're the best!
