About Kathryn

Learn Kathryn’s areas of practice.

It's very important to me to efficiently help clients get through what may be the worst time of their lives with the least emotional and most economical cost possible in their specific situation. Sometimes outside sources influence the ability to do this, but I don't unnecessarily provoke animosity or frivolous litigation. My goal is to provide an understanding of how Florida law pertains to each client's case so the client is able to make informed decisions about his or her situation rather than hearing bad news for the first time in court.

Extremely Patient and Dedicated
After what seemed like a never ending negotiation due to the opposing councils lack of communication, Kate not only kept me sane, but also worked passionately to get this resolved with my budget in mind. She is not only fair, but actually works in her clients best interest in all aspects of the law. She is not only personable but extremely diligent in her work. I trusted her 100% to speak on my behalf and make decisions based on our discussions.

Kate was an amazing advocate for me during an extremely emotional and scary time. She is trustworthy, honest and compassionate. You can’t find a better family law attorney. I’m forever grateful.

Satisfied client
I would hire Ms. Hill- you will not be disappointed. I began working with Kathryn on what seemed a simple divorce. In the process of litigation she was able to meticulously navigate the complications manifested over an extended period of time including custody, child support, alimony, minor children's medical needs, non-custodial incarceration and contempt hearings. During stressful times, her knowledge of the law-paired with realism and creativity- allowed me to watch her turn impossible situations into security for myself and my child. When it seems everything is hopeless, she continues to break through barriers by listening, processing and turning your testimony into action. I trust her abilities and will rely on her again and again.

Compassionate, Professional, Elite
Mrs. Hill is very professional, honest, intelligent, & knowledgable in family law & procedure. At my consultation, she knew the exact path to take after listening to my circumstances. I was extremely concerned about my young child's safety due to my ex-spouse's past & current criminal & substance abuse lifestyle. She took my concern, issues & facts to the judge, and I was awarded exactly what Mrs. Hill suggested in my consultation. I am beyond blessed by Mrs. Hill's representation. Most importantly, she helped me aide in my child's safety.

Extremely Competent
I am so glad to know there is a place where I can express my feelings and give accolades to Kathryn Hill. She helped me many years ago during my divorce and through her hard work and diligence, it turned out very well. Now I find myself dealing with my ex-husband again on legal issues concerning the alimony he was ordered to pay in the final decree of divorce. He has taken it upon himself to defy the Order to stop paying and I have once again contacted Kate. She has proven to me in the past that she is very congenial and has a 'heart' for my situation. Therefore it was a great decision to contact her again. She has first hand knowledge of my difficult divorce and amazingly remembered all aspects that we encountered during that trial. I am so happy that I did put my trust into her again as she has gotten even better as an Attorney since my first ordeal. She takes a case personally and is very involved. She has stayed up-to-date on the new laws dealing with my case and has, without a doubt, done her 'homework' on how to organize my case and present it. She has kept me well informed on the progress and has shared with me her plan for how to present and go forward. She also has asked for my opinion and incorporated it into her handling of the case. This has made me happy as she is aware of my personal knowledge and experience with the people we are dealing with. It takes an unselfish and well educated person to allow the client to 'help' in the decision making as it affects the client most. She has that quality as she is smart and knows that information comes from many places. During this last battle that we have fought together, she has remained so very Loyal to me as her client and has not shared her strategies with the opposing counsel under any conditions. Secrets are definitely 'safe' with her. She is a Truth Seeker and it works well in her favor and mine. What a valuable asset it is to me as a client and to my case. Such a vote of confidence from me just to know that she is putting ME first in the legal fight. How important is that to anyone who would employ her? To me it has been Major! After her hard work and diligence in this last issue, I have to say that she ranks six stars on the overall rating above. Her results in this legal ordeal have ruled 100% in my favor. Please never say to me, as one of Kate's clients, that she is not dedicated or loyal to her clients. You would be very hard pressed to find any Attorney who measures up to her standards in the legal profession. She may not always be 'popular' with her constituents but she does what is 'Right' for her client. It is my great pleasure to be acquainted with her and to have hired her once again to represent me.

My wife got less than I would have been willing to give her.
She did a very good job representing me through a most frightening time. What she told me on the first day held true to the final resolution. She stayed right on top of things, showed empathy and was fair with the dollar amount charged. I would go to her again.
