    "She was very compassionate and she came up with a game plan right away!"
    My daughter and I hired Mrs. Mesic for my son. He had prior drug arrests, a DUI, and several violation of probation. He was facing maximum time of 8 years and at the age of 21! She was very compassionate and she came up with a game plan right away! She stayed in constant contact with myself and my daughter via phone and email. Her staff was very quick with response to keep us updated on court dates, etc. she ultimately got his time reduced to 8 months, and kept him out of prison! I am forever thankful for what she has done, and I highly recommend her!

    "Kate was extremely prompt with her assistance. She was able to get the best possible resolve working with the prosecution."
    We contacted Ms. Mesic upon a recommendation from a friend in Tampa. Our issue was with regard to a felony case in Jacksonville. Kate was extremely prompt with her assistance. She was able to get the best possible resolve working with the prosecution. The case was ultimately dropped. She would consistently keep in touch with us regarding her work on the case and giving us updates on her progress. No only is she a wonderful lawyer she is also a wonderful person. Very personable and easy to work with.
    - Kathy
    "I would recommend her without reservation."
    I know know Kate personally and professionally. Unfortunately I was involved in a 3rd DUI (over 36 yrs time period). Obviously I was in a very precarious situation. She gave excellent advice/council to me which I followed. I believe I received the BEST possible outcome from this difficult position. No jail time, lowest fines applicable, and early release from probation. She was available by phone, e-mail or in person as much as I needed her. All contacts were returned, something rare in any business! I would recommend her without reservation. Professional excellence, and exceptional personal treatment.
    - Ken
    "Great lawyer"
    Great service and very professional.
    - Ashley
    "As all the reviews say Kate and her team are fantastic."
    As all the reviews say Kate and her team are fantastic. I've never dealt with a DUI type of situation before and had an incident with my son. Kate reviewed the legalities of the situation and guided us through the process, luckily no major actions were needed but having a responsive, expert lawyer guiding us through the process gave tremendous peace of mind. I can't recommend Kate enough.
    - T.P.
    "Gave me back my life!!"
    They are top-notch, efficient, very knowledgeable, and yes, they are even very friendly.
    - Dave
    "As my lawyer, she was very encouraging and kept great communication as she made herself available to contact for questions, updates, etc."
    From the start, she was honest and quite informational about my case, how she can help, and my options. Unlike other offices I had contacted, she did not come across as a sales person. She was very quick to gather information and thoroughly answer all my questions, as well as clearly explain the legal process I was to undergo, which was exactly what I needed in my emotionally disheveled state. As my lawyer, she was very encouraging and kept great communication as she made herself available to contact for questions, updates, etc. Initially, I was clearly informed how payment was for services rendered, not for the result of the case, though my case ended with the best possible outcome. I am very appreciative of all her hard work and effort in my case and I would gladly work with her again and recommend her services to anyone in need of them.
