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.

I contacted Kate after speaking to several attorneys that told me to go to court by myself and was relieved to have found her. She was always very upfront and understanding. I was always informed of what was being done on my behalf and thankfully my ticket got dismissed without even going to trial. I would definitely recommend Kate to anyone needing representation.

I retained Kate's services in January 2013 after receiving a criminal citation for driving without a valid license because of her past experience coupled with responsiveness, value for money, and assertiveness. In terms of managing the case, Kate wasted no time in getting my case docketed. Her effectiveness and diligence meant that she reached a deal with he state prosecutor to get my case dismissed. I am so pleased that Kate was my attorney who got me the best possible outcome I was hoping for!

Kate Mesic is an excellent attorney with fair prices and she contacts people immediately - which is so important when you need legal advice right away because you're nervous about something. I've referred Kate to two different people and they were both very happy with her services also.

I believe Kate Mesic could help resolve any problem. I have been so pleased and satisfied with her service that I will call her again and again, plan to use her services for the rest of my life, and also to recommend her to any inquiries or people asking me for references. She is top-notch!!!

Upon first contacting Kate, she had personally responded within 30 minutes. Kate continued to do exactly what she said she would, at exactly when she said she would. Kate carefully managed my expectations & at no time during our 90-day relationship did I ever feel in the dark. She's an excellent communicator and her tenacious/relentless demeanor caused our case to end favorably for us, certainly the optimal goal. I would recommend Kate w/out reservation.
