Absolute Rock Star
Kathryn stated upfront that if I was looking for a lawyer to make my STBXW suffer, I should find another attorney. Her goal is to reach an agreement as quickly & painlessly as possible. For me, the best part about working with Kathryn was her transparency & prompt communication... At no point in the process did I feel the need to ask "What's going on?". 5 stars. Highly recommend.

Exceeded expectations
Kathryn Lynch is an excellent family lawyer, with an equally impressive team. Her legal skills are outstanding, and her interpersonal skills set her apart. She patiently answered my questions, sympathetically listened to my frustrations, and gently kept me on track throughout the 18-month journey to a settlement. Kathryn was always well-prepared, professional in hearings, clear in her legal advice, proactive and diligent in pursuing her plan, and nimble in responding to challenges and overcoming obstacles. Communication and coordination kept everyone on the same page and moving in the same direction, creating a smooth and seamless interface between Kathryn and Traci Leeper, her superb paralegal, who was always on top of every detail of the case and prompt with all correspondence and filings. The list of positives could go on but suffice to say that together they made a difficult process as close to pleasant as possible. Moreover, billing was always fair and transparent.

Brilliant Family Law Attorney
Kathryn Lynch represented me in my divorce following 12 years of marriage. From our initial conversation, Kathryn kept me updated on every email and phone call with opposing counsel. She is empathetic, confident and brilliant. Kathryn's preparation is thorough, and she did a great job managing my expectations. Throughout the 5 month process, Kathryn continually exceeded my expectations. Divorcing a Narcissist requires thinking the way they think to manage them to our satisfaction. Kathryn was brilliant and I came away from mediation very happy with the outcome. If you need a Family Law Attorney, do not hesitate to call Quinn & Lynch. Professional, brilliant representation at a fair price.

Best Family Law Lawyer in Tampa Bay
Ms. Lynch was a life saver for me. She acted quickly and took care of me at all moments throughout my case. She made the impossible possible on short timelines. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done. She took on my case during the holidays which is something most wouldn't have done. I am beyond thankful for her and will continue to refer her to all that I know. Having a woman that understands and empathizes with my situation was important to me. She did so, but also made sure I knew my rights legally. Traci set up my very first appointment with Ms. Lynch and she is the very reason I had my first consult with Ms. Lynch. Traci has great customer service and is such an asset to Quinn and Lynch Office. Thank you both again for everything.

So Happy & Thankful
Specifically selected group based off of education. Went & met with them before signing just needed that face to face. While being direct and honest still delivered with kindness, very professional. The entire team worked with me to make sure I understood every detail and where diligent in crossing T’s and dotting I’s. So helpful to understand all details and bring up potential concerns. When going to mediation, truly looked out for my concerns and very patient with me. I am so thankful that I hired Kathryn and team, I couldn’t have imagined going through this with anyone else.

Single dad being falsely accused by ex-wife. Vindicated in the end.
Katy Lynch has helped me more than I can ever say in a simple review. I first contacted her in 2016 while I was working with the military in Afghanistan. My then wife had just falsely accused me of a number of things such as infidelity, domestic abuse, using drugs, being an active threat towards her and my kids and even violating national security in hopes I would be fired from my job, possibly jailed, but mostly be forced to go back to her and live under her control. After she leveled these falsehoods, she disappeared with my boys for over two years. Katy was a stabilizing force for me. She helped me focus and realize I had time on my side and to focus on the long view instead of emotional impulses. With her help and advice, I was able to gather the proof I needed to prove the accusations false and expose my malicious ex-wife for the person she is. Due to her efforts, I was able to focus on not only the divorce, but also what I needed to have in place once the divorce was over. While my divorce took almost 5 years to complete, by the end of it I had sole custody of my boys, had gone back to school (am only 5 credits from my masters as I write this), found a new career that matches my boys’ schedules, bought a house with a big backyard for them and their friends to play in, finances in place to care for them, and protective measures in place so my boys can heal and grow up in a happy and healthy environment away from the negative influences of my ex-wife. I cannot give a higher recommendation for working with Katy.

The Best Family Law Firm
When I found myself in need of an attorney to handle my divorce I went looking for reviews. I saw numerous accolades from satisfied clients, and their peers. That made me feel safe in contacting Quinn & Lynch. From my first phone call this firm was so helpful. Their compassion during a very trying time couldn't have been better. Ms Lynch handled my case and she was simply the best! Her care, compassion and attention to detail made me feel very comfortable and confident. The support staff, including the para-legal(Traci), that worked on my case were friendly, compitent and caring. They will definitely be patient with you. If you find yourself in need of a family law firm please do yourself a favor and contact Quinn & Lynch.

Caring, knowledgeable attorney in your corner
Going through a divorce is never easy, even in the best circumstances. When I found myself in this situation, I was blessed to be referred to Kathryn from a coworker. Throughout the whole process she was caring, informative, and extremely well versed in her craft. She was with me every step of the way to a resolution I could live with. I can't recommend her enough if you find yourself in a similar situation.

Thankful
I started the search for representation about a year ago, and set up consults with a couple lawyers; Katie was the only one I felt really listened to me, seemed to understand what I was going through, and told me the reality of my situation with both compassion and empathy. My priority was the safety of my child and I believe she mirrored my concerns. She was always readily available, thoroughly (and patiently) answered any questions I had, and treated me and my case as a priority. Her office provided transparent invoices at the end of each month so I always knew what was happening with my retainer. I didn’t think that would be an aspect of her representation that would matter to me, but it helped me to understand the financials in a more natural way. It was clear from the very beginning, and even clearer when the tough stuff started happening, that I was being represented by a woman of the utmost integrity and intellect. I recognize that selecting a lawyer, especially for family court matters, is a very personal thing. What I can say is that I felt proud to have her in my corner, and I’m so thankful I hired her.

Just the lawyer you want fighting for you!!!!
My case was quite complicated and unique. My ex and I are divorced overseas and then he decided to file for a new divorce and custody agreement in the US. Kathryn was extremely supportive and navigated my case with such smoothness and immense emotional support. She was extremely knowledge about the use of international court rulings in US courts. Not only that, her extensive knowledge of US practices, ruling, and laws made my case. Even when my ex's lawyer tried to twist the truth and manipulate certain evidence, she was prepared for each and every scenario. She was honest with me from the beginning about what to expect and in the end we got a ruling exactly as what she told me in our very first call. She was patient with me even when I was panicking. In a nutshell, Kathryn saved my kids and myself from a lengthy case. She is just the type of lawyer you want batting for you. I would highly recommend her not only for her professional skills, but also for her emotional support.

The best lawyer for divorce
I came looking for Katie because I was going through a divorce with a difficult partner and saw she specialized in family law and came highly recommended. Katie made my sticky divorce process nice and smooth. Her and her paralegal Mandy were always punctual with responses, super patient and understanding with continuous questions, and kept a high level of professionalism with still being caring and sympathetic. Anytime I got super frustrated or thought I was going crazy with a situation, she would help ease me and refocus my vision. Honest, knowledgeable and kept it realistic throughout the whole process. 10/10 recommend!
