Coral Gables Attorney Jacqueline A. Salcines, Esq.
Jacqueline Salcines , P.A. was founded by Attorney Jacqueline Salcines to represent and assist individuals and corporations in all aspects of their real estate, business and financial objectives.
Coral Gables Attorney Jacqueline Salcines attended the University of Miami School of Law, Coral Gables, Florida, where she earned her Juris Doctorate degree in 1998. After graduation, Ms. Salcines became a member of the Florida Bar in 1999. She is also a member of the Bar of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
Prior to attending law school, Mrs. Salcines obtained her Bachelor in Business Administration majoring in Accounting in 1991. She worked for the family accounting practice as a bookkeeper since the age of 16, and later as an accountant for 5 years after graduating.
That is when she decided to pursue her passion for law, and enrolled in law school at the University of Miami, working as a paralegal in law firms full time during the day, while attending law school at night.
As a practicing attorney, Mrs. Salcines is a member of the Florida Bar and Federal Bar for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida as well as the Dade County Bar Association, Coral Gables Bar Association and Broward County Bar Association.
Prior to opening her own law firm, she worked as an associate at several federal criminal law firms as well as several real estate law firms. In 2000, Attorney Jacqueline Salcines went out on her own and established Jacqueline A. Salcines, PA. She continued to establish herself as a Miami Attorney based practice in criminal law as well as real estate and business law.
However, in 2004, Attorney Jacqueline Salcines shifted her practice to emphasize the growing real estate market and began focusing primarily on real estate closings, residential and commercial.
Since 2004, Mrs. Salcines’ practice has consisted of primarily real estate closings and title work for both commercial and residential transactions. As an agent for Attorney’s Title Insurance Fund, Inc., the largest underwriter in the State of Florida and Old Republic National Title Insurance, Inc. Mrs. Salcines issues owner and title insurance policies backed by a solid leader in the title insurance industry.
As a Coral Gables Attorney Based Practice, and with the downturn in the real estate market, Attorney Jacqueline Salcines has been consistently contacted by clients for whom she assisted with closings, in attempts to save their homes from foreclosures. Mrs. Salcines’ practice today focuses primarily on foreclosure defense for the homeowner/borrower while simultaneously finding a solution for the property, be it a loan modifications or short sales, including all plans offered under the Making Home Affordable Plan, HAFA, Hope for Homeowners, HARP 2.0 and many other plans available for homeowners in fear of losing their homes.
