I highly recommend Mary Catherine Bonner for any criminal defense attorney needs that you might have. Ms. Bonner has received the highest “AV Preeminent” rating by the nationally-recognized Martindale & Hubbell Law Directory signifying that her peers in the legal profession have ranked her at the highest level of professional excellence… and it is easy to understand why. Not only is Ms. Bonner professional, hardworking, thorough, and respected by her peers, her honesty and integrity are beyond reproach. She possesses over 30 years of experience as a criminal lawyer, having successfully argued cases before both the United States and Florida Supreme Courts. Indeed, she has effectively represented lawyers accused of crimes. She also speaks fluent Spanish. Hiring Ms. Bonner is a wise decision... it's that simple. She knows the Florida court system and how to get the best possible outcome for her clients. Dort S. Bigg
