Amazing Lawyer
Kate helped me with both of my cases regarding my DWI and my felony possession, as well as the expungement of the former. She was extremely efficient with the court and the filings for my cases. She worked out the best deal with the prosecutor. She was also so helpful guiding me through the nuances of my cases, along with helping me understand everything that needed to be done to get these filed and closed. Kate is an amazing lawyer, as well as an amazing person. She is proactive and does the best job possible.

Understanding, proactive and very professional
We recently had an issue with a contractor/business that did not perform their work to the expectation to which they had agreed. We contacted Kate Mesic, Esq. who was very understanding of our dilemma and was quite willing to work with us. She did recover from the contractor the funds required to correct the poor work. Ms. Mesic was very understanding of our concerns, gave us a frank and honest opinion of the various outcomes, and represented us in the most professional and honest way. With proficiency and skill she pursued our interests with great results We highly recommend Ms. Mesic.

I had an excellent experience with this law office handling my habitual traffic offender case. I was riddled with anxiety when I was hit with an HTO but Kate’s professionalism was evident from the start. Kate and her team addressed my case with a sense of urgency that made me feel prioritized. They were always available to answer my questions, and their communication was clear and timely throughout the entire process. Additionally, their services were affordable, providing great value for the quality of representation I received. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance. I couldn’t be any happier with the outcome. A+

Outstanding Law Firm
September 27, 2022 The Law offices of Kate Mesic were of invaluable service to our family. From the outset, their prompt, professional and highly skilled team worked tirelessly on our case and with their exhaustive research and diligent preparation, we had the outcome for our case we desired. Despite very difficult circumstances, our case was successful but also the emotional support needed during the period was exceptional. Calls and correspondence were answered within hours which was a great help during such a stressful time. I highly recommend the Law Firm of Kate Mesic for their professionalism, honest and candid handling of legal issues and questions, and their straightforward approach which led to the positive resolution of our case.

Awesome Attorney
Mrs. Mesic is an upfront professional and Responsive Attorney. She helped me Resolve an old case from 1997 that had hindered a career goal of mine. Today her hard work has opened a door that had been somewhat shut for many years. Retain This Firm Today if in need. I talked to three attorneys before I spoke to Mrs. Mesic from the first second I knew she was my attorney and retained her. Thanks A Trillion.

One of the best
Thankfully Kate thoroughly explained my case to me and what would be needed and what the process would look like during our first conversation on the phone. She was there every step of the way with any questions I may have had and pushed for my case to be dropped and believed in me. Her firm is somewhere you go when you need someone to fight for your future and best represent you. My case was dropped and I am able to focus on my future.

Traffic Ticket
I received a traffic ticket and did not want points on my license. Kate was able to withhold points so my license was not affected. She and her office staff were super helpful and everything was handled in a timely manner.
