Betsy Saucedo

I am an attorney with over 13 years of experience that makes it a goal to work with the client's needs and to assure you feel you are not alone. We will stand with you during a difficult time and try to move forward with your goals and future in mind.

While a legal case can be difficult, it is also transformative in a person's life and if done with care, can make all the difference in having somebody on your side. Most people who deal with court action simply hope that they can understand their options and know what might happen next. A good attorney can provide insight into processes and tap into the root of the issues to blend process and needs of a client. I strive to do this in every case.
