Jacqueline M. Valdespino was invaluable in helping me through a difficult time. It was just over six years ago when I was hit with one of the biggest changes in my life, when my husband asked for a divorce. I had no idea where to begin or how to protect our son in this horrible moment. Mrs. Valdespino was there for me throughout the process and has been there for me since. She counseled me on what I needed regarding this process and explained, through examples and in a way I could understand, the need for changes. She consistently and attentively listened to my concerns and gave her thoughts and guidance as a responsible lawyer . She looked after my future interests, not only as a divorced person, but also as a mother and provider. She continues to look out for me and our son. I recommend her, without reservation.
After 8 years 3 different lawyers who promised me results in my divorce proceedings and did not deliver, I hired Valdespino & Associates, PA and we finalized the proceedings to not only a successful conclusion in less than 1 yr but to the one I had desired. I discovered that with the experience of the Valdespino team and the integrity of delivering what they promised was the major difference in finally settling my proceedings and getting a long term agreement that protected me for the term that was in question. In addition, I hired Valdespino & Associates PA for a Employment Contract that had to be completed in less than 1 week and it was not only completed but with highly innovative suggestions that protected me and my family up to the year of retirement and beyond.
