He absolutely killed it in my divorce and I couldn't be happier. I had to jump on here and give him a review because he seriously went above and beyond for me and my kids. My ex was completely out of touch with reality and I knew it would be a fight. It didn't happen over night but the long road was worth it and I ended up with custody and all the protections that I needed for the kids. I know he and his brothers are not the cheapers lawyers but they were worth every penny.

Chris did an outstanding job on my case. I'm from Colorado and was passing through Utah, I ended up getting a bogus charge on my way through. Without going into details, I thought I was going to jail. I hired Chris and the outcome was way better than I expected. He really went to bat for me and I would recommend him to anyone looking for the best.

I called Chris initially on a weekend when I was charged with domestic violence then had a protected order served on me. From the get go Chris seemed like the expert in the field. I appreciated the fact he didn't try to over sell me on anything. He seemed straight forward and honest. I ended up hiring him, thank goodness. He represented me well and eventually everything was dismissed (it was all bogus allegations from the get go). He did a great job, I don't hesitate to say go get him on board before the other side does!

I don't want to go into too much details about my case but I want to say, he came through big time for me. I was not smart, I should have never been in the situation I found myself in. However, the police trampled all over my rights in the process. He fought every issue and the outcome was great. He treated me with dignity and I never felt judged by him. He truly was my advocate through this process. I (hopefully) will never find myself needing his services again but I will send him to every friend and family member who might need his expertise.

Chris definitely knows hi stuff. He is confident in his knowledge an work, which gave me the confidence and assurance I needed while undergoing my situation. I felt secure in his competence and happy with the results of my family law case. Chris will work hard for you but will also keep you grounded to the reality of your case and all it's possible outcomes, which is something I really appreciated.

I would highly recommend Chris. I hired him for a protective order defense and was very satisfied with the outcome. I had no experience with lawyers but had heard horror stories from friends. I was referred to Chris by someone I trusted and I am glad I did. I have to admit I was a probably very difficult to deal with as I was extremely terrified and not familiar with the court process. I was facing a protective order and new divorce was next. I was worried about the custody situation and felt homeless amiss all the lies form the soon to be ex. Chris listened to my ranting and helped me understand what was important. He did a good job and ill recommend him to family and friends.

I recommend Chris to anyone I know that needs legal assistance. It does not matter what the issue is they seem to know how to deal with it or know just the right professional they trust to deal with the matter.

Chris is a down-to-earth lawyer. He is realistic with regards to your case and can give a pretty accurate expectations of how the case will play out. His knowledge of the legal system allows him to explore every avenue available pertaining to your case. I went to Salcido Law feeling ashamed and came out feeling confident and informed. I would strongly recommend Salcido Law to any of my friends and family and would feel confident that their legal needs would be met.
