Jerry Salcido is one of the founding attorneys of St. George Criminal Defense and Salcido Law Frim. Jerry began his criminal defense experience with the Utah County Public Defender’s Office during law school. Years later, Jerry continues to defend the rights of criminal defendants against the awesome power of the state. He has defended numerous individuals against all types of felony and misdemeanor criminal charges in courts throughout the State of Utah and especially has a passion for defending individuals against drug crime charges.
Jerry has testified before the Utah House Judiciary Committee on criminal matters that affect the individual rights of the accused and the general public. Jerry is also a member of the Utah Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and acts on its Legislative Committee in an effort to protect individuals from the many laws which are proposed every year which would negatively impact the rights of due process of the accused.
Jerry has a passion for liberty and for that reason dedicates his time to defending individuals against government charges. Individual rights are paramount and the innocence of those accused of crimes must be protected.
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 graduated cum laude from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University in 2004, and is licensed to practice law in Utah, Arizona, and California.
