    Ms. Mesic represented me just recently on a case I have been fighting for years. She was one of 10 attorneys I was speaking too. Out of all of the top 10 she was the best and exactly what I was looking for. Kind, patient, understanding, amazing communication skills, and most importantly she listened to what I said and what I wanted. She forms a plan and follows it through. Professionalism at it's best in a field full of cons, she is a bright light. Thank you.

    I needed to complete a large Licensing Agreement for the Department of the Navy. Half way through the agreement I was so confused I need help. I retained the Law Office of Kate Mesic to review the Agreement and translate the legal mumbo jumbo into plain English. Kate and her professional staff did an excellent job explaining the terms of the Agreement and my Company now is an Official Department of the Navy Licensee. I highly recommend Kate Mesic and her staff for all you legal needs.

    We are both practicing civil attorneys. When our out-of-state child was wrongfully charged with some misdemeanor infractions we found Kate through a referral and we became very impressed with Kate's experience, diligence and knowledge of the local courts. She was extremely responsive and addressing our questions and concerns. She seems to know everyone in the Duval County Court House.
