I am truly grateful to have found Amanda and her team. I have been trying to establish a relationship with my son for years. Because my son and his mother often moved between states, it made it very difficult for me. Shortly after my son moved to Florida I contacted Amanda's office. I was greeted by Cheryl. Cheryl was very kind and professional. Shortly after, I spoke with Amanda and took a while to explain my situation to the best of my knowledge. Amanda was very understanding and really felt like she cared about my son and myself. She reassured me she can help. From that moment on I actually had hope. For a handful of months, I dealt with Cheryl directly, sometimes even late night and weekends. During these times, I had some pretty unexpected moments that really required help...Cheryl was right there, seriously. I never felt alone the entire time. I finally flew 1500 miles down to Florida and met Amanda and Cheryl. They were very polite, professional, made me feel real comfortable and Amanda fought real hard for me with such compassion. Amanda and Cheryl truly changed my entire families lives as we got to welcome him to his family up north and at the moment I can not express in words as to how much I owe Cheryl and Amanda for what they have done for us.

I was going through a rather bitter divorce and was practically screaming for help. I had never dealt with anything like that and the proceedings were out of state for me. Amanda was a constant calming influence and began working quickly on my behalf the moment I contacted her. She made what was possibly the worst time in my life a survivable event and was the reassurance I needed when I needed it most.

I have made contact with this attorney and she has outright refused to communicate. I would highly recommend going with any other attorney.

Needless to say going through a divorce is a 10 on the scale of stress. OK here is a quick glimpse of my situation. My wife and I decided we wanted a divorce, and my wife filed for the divorce. The reality doesn't hit you until a guy shows up at your door with the papers. My goal was to keep the difference in my retirement and my wife's. It was about 40,000 . My plan was to use the money to refinance my home. My wife's name was on the mortgage, but both our names were on the title. (not an easy refinance situation) She was agreeable to this, because our house was under water since we bought in the boom. Her job was in another city, so moving worked for her. In the end we both managed to reach and agreement that we wanted. Dealing with the mortgage company was a whole other stress to get it done, but not for this review.
My fear with attorneys, is that they would rather bleed their clients of their finances and almost encourage a fight between the couple. I have heard horror stories of divorces where this has happened. When I first met Amanda before I hired her, I had to go in and tell my story. I could feel myself choke up a bit, because the pain was new and it hurt. I looked up, and in her eyes I saw genuine compassion. I have always been able to read people, and I knew she was more than just a lawyer. She was a woman with a heart, and the person I wanted in my corner. Luckily my X wife and I are now good friends and the divorce worked out for the best for both of us. Had we had different attorneys that might not have been the case.
I never had to go to trial with her, but trust me when I tell you this. She can be tough as nails if needed, and I did see that when we went through a couple scenarios in her office. If my Wife's attorney wanted to play hard ball, she would have kicked his tail lol.
You do have to pay a non refundable retainer up front, but She is very honest on her billing. I think I found her through this referral website and I thank God every day that I did. I also have to mention her legal assistant Stephanie. She was there for me on many e-mails and frantic office visits . I couldn't have gotten through it all with out both of them working as a team.

Hired Ms Salcido for child custody hearing and divorce. Ex spouse was withholding the child from me and had a temporary relief hearing. Ms Salcido was suppose to write up the results from the case, meanwhile ex spouse or soon to be ex at the time took advantage of the documents not written up immediately. Three weeks later she finally wrote them up and was poorly written and very unclear if what was given in court. Unfortunately there was no court stenographer present during the temporary relief so I really felt like I got the short end of the and she didn't go to bat for me. I went and hired a new attorney because if that how temporary relief went I didn't want to see the outcome with ms Salcido.

I sought for Ms. Salcido as my lawyer for legal assistance based on her history of being energetic, knowledgeable, and caring. Her performance exceeded my expectations. Upon her agreement for providing my legal representation, she gathered necessary information and letters were sent to recipients associated in my case immediately regarding responsibility of the opposing party and what must be presented in a timely manner to support their position. The information and requests in those letters were precise. All retort was met with firm, well-informed responses, and she updated me throughout my representation. Her ability to prepare a strong argument improved my position for not only retention, but also promotion. It was through Ms. Salcido’s work ethic and knowledge that I am again looking forward to a longer, bright future with my employer. I highly recommend, without any hesitation, Ms. Salcido.

Very impressed our first meeting. Puts you at ease immediately. You feel comfortable asking her anything and she always takes the time to answer you without making you feel like she's only got a few minutes. She is very knowledgable and explains the process from start to finish so you kow what to expect. She gets things done and you know, without a doubt she is looking out for your best interests. During the whole divorce proceedings including all the paperwork plus the mediation process I felt confident and comfortable and knew she had my back. She is very compassionate and empathetic person and I highly recommend her.
