Practice areas

Over her 25+ years of legal practice, Kathryn has achieved significant recognition and obtained numerous certifications. She is a Certified Marital and Family Law attorney, an AV Preeminent rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell and a Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator. Board Certification means Kathryn is an expert in marital and family law.  As a board certified attorney, she has dedicated 50 percent or more of her practice to marital and family law; actively participated in contested marital and family law cases; been substantially involved in negotiating settlements; drafting and preparing settlement agreements; and handling the trial of marital and family law cases, including appeals.  It also means she has been evaluated for competency and professionalism by judges and peers; and passed a written examination demonstrating knowledge, skills, and proficiency in the field of marital and family law to justify the representation of special competence in this area of law.  An AV Preeminent rating is a significant rating accomplishment and a testament to the fact that Kathryn’s peers rank her at the highest level of professional excellence.

Kathryn has also served as an arbitrator and special master. In those quasi-judicial roles, she has sworn in witnesses, heard testimony, made findings of facts and ruled on the merits of the case.  Kathryn has been an active member of, and officer in, Canakaris Inn of Court, a respected group of family law attorneys whose commitment is to foster excellence in professionalism, ethics, civility and legal skills for judges and lawyers in order to prefect the quality, availability and efficiency of justice.  Kathryn is also a member of the Federal Bar, Middle District of Florida.  In her capacity as a lawyer, Kathryn has represented thousands of clients and litigated hundreds of cases in many areas of law.

Recognition aside, the hallmark of Kathryn’s legal practice is her dedication to serving her clients’ legal needs with experience and compassion. Achieving resolution on a legal dispute – whether related to personal, family, or business matters – can be a highly stressful ordeal. Kathryn is committed to guiding every one of her clients through the challenging process of achieving their goals by providing compassionate representation through all steps of negotiations, settlement discussions, and litigation.

Freindly, efficient and reasonable charges.
I consulted Kathryn after a protracted divorce case seemed to have become mired in paperwork. She took the case, and with the help of her Legal Assistant Angie obtained a result in short order. Angie was so patient, even when faced with mountains of documents requested by opposing counsel, and always returned calls. Kathryn was so understanding, and helped me through this difficult time. She certainly knows her job.
