Anonymous review posted on
I hired Chris Salcido to help with a very specific task involving my ex husband of 6 years. I was being taken back to court via my ex because his lawyer for got to put something in the divorce papers. I informed Chris I did not want to let them add the information to the divorce decree that they for got. I told him no I did not want that.
He charged me 2000 dollars for a 1/2 hour court date. Never met with me before the court date. Came to the court and didn't even know I was his client. As he talked to my ex Ed attorney right in front of me.
He wouldn't listen to me at the court house he bullied me and coarsest Ned into agreeing to everything and then some of what my ex husbands attorney wanted. I said no over and over again. Chris would verbally attack me and say over and over again why why don't you want to give thin this. I felt like he was my ex husbands attorney. I felt no support from this attorney at all. He just wanted to make a fast buck! And used me to get money with out working for it. Took advantage of my inability to stand up for myself to him. Due to being emotionally and verbally abused via my ex for 30 years. This attorney new he could verbally coarse me as his client into a negative agreement in this legal case.
Please please don't go to him. I don't want any one else to ever feel bullied and coated into setting for a legal agreement that you don't want. Please please listen to me he was lazy and didn't want to work at all. He wanted a fast buck and he got it. The guy never met me before the court date. Seriously!! He was asking my ex husbands attorney about me and about what the case was about....
2000 dollars for this attorney to go to court and agree with everything the other attorney wanted and then he through in extras!!! Serious !! You would not believe that he was the defendants attorney??

I hired chris during one of the most difficult times of my life and was facing some serious charges and potential jail time. Chris fought for me and got me through it all. im truly grateful for what he did and would recommend him to anyone. Thanks chris!

Started my divorce with Chris, then moved to another attorneys. NONE of them calls back in a timely manner. You have to email and email and maybe get an email back in over a week! Extremely poor communication from this firm. And as I read some of these reviews, I see it is a pattern for these people. Three months into this divorce with no property and no children and we're still no where. So sorry I hired them!

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!

My biggest fear was losing time with my children in my divorce. I hired Chris after meeting with him and several other lawyers. I made the right choice. He fought for what was right and helped me get the custody arrangement I believed was best for our kids. Chris was good to work with, I fully recommend him to anyone looking for the best divorce and custody lawyer around.

I know Chris pretty well now that I have had to hire him for 3 different cases. I first retained Chris when I was wrapped up in a custody battle and needed a bull dog to deal with a relentless ex. Later I hired him when one of my teenage kids got into trouble with the law. Most recently I found myself neeeding his services when my ex took me back to court trying to change our decree. On all occasions Chris got the job done. He is one of the smartest attorneys out there and he has been indespensible to me and my family.

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.

He fought for me in a criminal case and got me a far better deal than I ever imagined. He didn't try to over sell me on anything and I always felt like he was being very upfront and honest with me. He clearly knows his stuff and has been doing this for a while. He always returned my phone calls and kept me up to date on the status of my case. I know he has a couple brothers in the firm that he works with as well, they all seemed pretty knowledgable.

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.
