DeAnn Salcido Divorce Attorney Review
When my marriage of almost 35 years came to an end, I was unprepared for the battle that was to come. I had no advance warning of the divorce. Even though I was in Shock, I knew I needed sound Legal Counsel. Someone recommended DeAnn Salcido to me and she became my Attorney. Dismantling 35 years of marital living and financial growth, required her knowledge, skill, and diligence to make sure she delivered the best settlement that was in My best interests as her Client. Given the sorrowful situation, I was still pleased at the final outcome! Carrie
