Gerald M. Salcido

Jerry Salcido is a trial and appellate lawyer who is licensed to
practice law in Utah, California, and Arizona and a founding Member of
Salcido Law Firm PLLC. Before founding Salcido Law Firm, Jerry practiced
litigation in the San Francisco Bay Area for six years, including at
the world’s largest law firm Baker & McKenzie LLP.  In doing so,
Jerry gained invaluable experience in representing everyone from the
local individual to the multinational Fortune 500 company.  In addition
to having appeared countless times before both state and federal courts
at both the trial and appellate levels, Jerry has experience in
mediation and international arbitration.

Jerry has substantial experience in representing individuals injured
in various ways including car accidents, slip and falls, and through
medical malpractice.  Among other things, Jerry’s criminal experience
includes a stint with the Utah County Public Defender’s office where he
defended numerous individuals accused of crimes such as DUI, drug
possession, theft, domestic violence, and other crimes.  Jerry has also
provided pro bono services to disabled children and victims of domestic
violence which has even included filing a brief with the United States
Supreme Court on their behalf.

Along with representing individuals, Jerry has represented financial
institutions, energy companies, technology companies, charitable
organizations, medical companies, and a wide array of other small and
large businesses in all types of litigation including contract disputes,
shareholder disputes, and breaches of fiduciary duties.

Jerry strives to use his experience to protect constitutional and
natural rights. In 2008, after the California Court of Appeals ruled
that “homeschooling” is illegal without a state teaching certificate,
Jerry represented California Homeschool Network in persuading the court
to reverse its decision, thereby protecting the rights of the nearly
three hundred thousand California children who receive their education
at home. Jerry also has served on the legal team of the Homeschool
Association of California for four years, and served as its legal chair.

Jerry’s practice focuses on criminal defense and personal injury.
