Review of Katherine Gonos's service
I am writing a 5 star review for Ms. Katherine Gonos. She is absolutely an amazing attorney, and she was able to handle a divorce between my daughter -in - law, and my son, with immediate and efficient expediency, at a cost that was so reasonable that I have been nothing less than to be impressed and appreciative. She was compassionate, caring, professional, and highly knowledgeable, pertaining to law and order, as well as being so immensely kind and considerate, and patient, as she helped my daughter in law, work toward separating and securing a divorce from my son, which had to be done, due to his decision to take on another woman. I am not angry or vindictive about the situation, as none of the impending parties were, but two children were in consideration here, and their best interest was in the forefront of legal proceedings. Katherine was able to compassionately mitigate between my daughter-in-law, and my son, to resolve a divorce situation that could have been awful, if she had been confrontational, or behaved in a non compassionate manner. I entirely recommend her for any sort of legal advice that she offers, because she is well mannered, caring, considerate, professional, extremely knowledgeable about law, and she truly listens to a client, and is motivated toward a just and positive outcome for all. In fact, Katherine went well above and beyond her duty, to attempt to reconcile the relationship between my son and his divorcing wife, in a manner that I have never witnessed. She is a fantastic lawyer, and I recommend that any person who is looking for an attorney, considers her, because she will truly be on the sideS of you, as the client, and she will not create a horrible situation with the opposing side. Katherine Gonos , is an amazing lawyer.. She has been the most perfect, imaginable, representation , and she has handled a difficult situation, immeasurably well. I recommend Katherine Gonos completely as an attorney who can handle any legal matter.

Hired Several Times
I highly recommend this lawyer! She successfully represented me in several cases. Ms. Gonos has fought for me in and out of court including divorce, child support modification, and child custody modification. Ms. Gonos was always prepared and knowledgeable about the specifics of my case. She made me feel confident and comfortable, knowing that my children would be safe and the final decisions would be in their best interest.

Amazing Attorney
I am in the military and live in Germany. I was having a lot of problems getting my child support re-evaluated by the State of Georgia. Georgia kept messing up the paperwork and wasn't updating information on my case. They constantly showed me in arrears when I was not. When I got the State's final determination on payment I knew they still hadn't updated the information so I contacted Katie and she has been amazing. With the 6 hour time difference between us and knowing my constraints of being overseas she was still there to answer any questions I had and if she wasn't available right away she always got back to me before the end of the day. She submitted paperwork when I need it submitted, and answered my emails right away. When we finally went to court she was absolutely amazing. I just sat back and she handled all of the talking. I didn't have to say a word. I highly recommend Katie!

Incredible results!
After months of trying to get my Lowndes County Georgia probation terminated with the attorney that I originally hired the case seemed to go no where. My calls weren't being returned and my emails weren't being answered. With some frustration I decided to seek out another attorney. I was probably told by about 8-9 attorneys that they probably wouldn't be able to do much to help me and if they could help it would take a while. Once I spoke to Attorney Katherine Gonos I knew I had found someone who took a unique interest in my case, did her research, and then called me back to tell me that she can help me. I hired her and within under two months my probation was terminated. I had never violated and had completed all of my terms. Throughout the whole process she answered my calls and emails promptly. She really knows her stuff when it comes to criminal law. Everything she told me was accurate

Former Defendant
Katherine Gonos helped me out a great deal in my case. I was in jail with a hold placed on me by probation. It is tough to get out of jail with a probation hold but she was able to get me in front of the preferred judge in a timely fashion. He would then grant me a bond that would allow me to get out. I had 5 felonies that were marijuana related. Since I was on probation when I got caught doing the same exact thing I was placed on probation for, there was no way she could have gotten me completely out of the mess I was in. She did however, get 4 out of the 5 of my felonies dropped. She also helped me avoid three years in prison. I would highly recommend her.

Professional and Caring
I would like to thank Mrs. Gonos for not only the awesome job she did but how she kept us in the loop every step of the way, when I first walked through the door she took the time to take notes about not only my sons case but about him and his family. Throughout the fourteen months it took to have his case brought before the judge her and my son came really close. If you find yourself in need of an attorney Mrs. Gonos is knowledgeable, caring, professional and a friend.

Highly Recommend
Mrs. Gonos was detail-oriented and applied professionalism as she served as a defense attorney for my son's case. She took on the challenge of defending my son and the outcome was was a success. Mrs. Gonos displayed patience and sincerity in her role which made the process more bearable. Valdosta needs more attorneys like her.

Katherine is awesome!
This attorney handled an important case for me. She worked hard on my case and represented me well. Most importantly Mrs Katherine is the reason I was found not guilty. She knows her stuff and is tough in the courtroom. If you feel like you were wrongfully arrested or your rights were violated she is definately the person you want batting for you.

Ms. Gonos represented me in a contract negotiation with a media company. She responded to my emails immediately and called me back within a reasonable time. I was very happy with the results and her professional demeanor. Further, I felt comfortable having a law firm with several attorneys with different practice areas to consult with if need be.
