    - A Satisfied Client

  • I am so thankful for all the work she has done on my behalf.

    I would highly recommend Kathy George, Esq. if you require representation in a family case. Kathy has been handling the various issues which have surfaced in my post-divorce/custody situation for a number of years now. I have always received respectful, prompt, and competent service from Kathy and her staff. She recently won my case in a circuit court with an extremely favorable final judgment. Kathy was fully prepared, she demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law, conducted herself in a professional manner, and did a stellar job at the hearing. I have also had many office meetings, email correspondence, and phone conversations with Kathy regarding my case. She has always been respectful to me and really takes the time to understand the issue at hand. She is skillful in depositions and mediation, provides thorough documentation to all parties, and was praised by the judge after the closing arguments for the excellent job she did on my case. I am so thankful for all the work she has done on my behalf. I believe it is difficult to choose a legal advocate in such serious and delicate matters, but I know I made the right choice with Kathy George.

  • Without her advice and representation, I would have had to give up my house.
    Ms. George went the distance to find a piece of arcane law that really helped my situation. Without her advice and representation, I would have had to give up my house.

When Kathy sets a goal she does everything in her power to make it happen. Would I recommend Kathy? Of course.

  • When you visit this office you feel as if you're at home with friends.
    Being a retired police officer, I've worked with lawyers for most of my adult life. So when I needed one, I spoke with several family lawyers and interviewed them, Ms. George made me feel very comfortable in a stressful time, took the time to listen to my situation, where with most others you felt as if you were just a number to process. When you visit this office you feel as if you're at home with friends. Always a straight answer to your questions.

    - Ron

  • I was very satisfied and would recommend her.

    Kathy is a good lawyer. She's knowledgeable, personable and has a quick mind. She handled a divorce for me in a very professional and competent manner. Although the case wasn’t nearly as complicated as some divorces, there were some nuances that could have really created problems for me and she made sure that didn’t happen. Being vindictive, my now ex-wife filed a DVI against me with some false claims and with Kathy’s help it was dismissed in one very short hearing. She was responsive to my needs and to my questions. I was very satisfied and would recommend her.

    - Len

  • She knows how to put her clients at ease.
    I had known of Kathy prior to me retaining her because she was my son's divorce attorney; her efforts resulting in my son getting custody of his two-year-old son, 5 years ago. She was always prepared and had it not been for the "dragging of feet" by my now, ex-wife's attorney, the divorce would have been settled in half the time that it took. Her personality is very outgoing and she knows how to put her clients at ease. Her knowledge of divorce laws is excellent. She always had time for me, even though my questions might have, at times, been less than sensible. I would recommend Kathy to anyone who might find themselves in a divorce situation.

    - Bob

  • She can handle her own.
    Kathy has represented me in my post-divorce proceedings for many, many years. I actually chose her over her more experienced co-attorneys at the time, as she did a more thorough job in all aspects. She was always prepared and did her best to fight for me and my children. She was always available to discuss matters with me as needed. She did not "dime and penny" me to death, as other attorneys have in the past. I feel completely confident in her handling of my case, and will continue to use her as needed in the future. Kathy George is a great attorney and I have used many in the past 20 years. I would put her up against all of the opposing counsel that I have had to deal with as well. She can handle her own.

  • There truly is hope if you believe.
    I retained Kathy George in February of 2011 to represent my 8 year daughter as a Guardian Ad Litem. Kathy expedited her interviews with myself, my daughter and my daughter's mother. During the trial, Kathy presented a detailed Guardian Ad Litem report to the court. Kathy is very knowledgeable in these matters concerning children. Kathy treated my daughter and me with dignity and respect. If there is anyone in a child custody situation I HIGHLY recommend retaining the services of a Guardian Ad Litem. They are there to represent the best interest of the children, not the parents. Kathy George did an outstanding job throughout my litigation. I would recommend Kathy George to anyone in the very delicate situation that involves your children. With Kathy's recommendations to the court, I now have majority timesharing and have relocated with my daughter to another state. There truly is hope if you believe.

    - Dan

  • My only wish is I would have found Kathy earlier.
    I have used Kathy for a little over a year with a couple of occurrences with my ex-wife regarding my daughter. I can tell you Kathy has always made time for my concerns. I previously was represented by other attorneys prior to Kathy who was suggested to me by a friend. My only wish is I would have found Kathy earlier. Not only was Kathy the BEST attorney I have ever used but her staff was as professional as Kathy.

    - Dennis

  • Kathy is extremely professional.
    I went to Kathy after dealing with a lawyer in Palm Harbor who was all about the money and got nothing accomplished except draining my money into his account. I have been using Kathy for almost 2 years and have spent as much as I did with him in 4 months. Kathy is extremely professional and will work on your behalf and cares about your outcome.

    - Peter

  • Her fees were almost one-half of the other attorneys for doing the same job.
    I met Ms. George at the lowest point of my life. She and her staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the law and procedures. She was very attentive to my needs. When we had my final hearing for divorce, she was able to get me the majority timeshare of my son. I looked at the other reviews and I disagree with her billing. She was very reasonable and if I had any questions, she would certainly look at any billing questions. Also, I learned at the final hearing that her fees were almost one-half of the other attorneys for doing the same job. I would say they are reasonable. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS LAWYER.

  • I owe it all to Kathy George.
    Kathy has been my attorney for a little over a year. She always maintained herself very professionally far more so that my ex's attorney. She was always on time and prepared for every meeting and hearing. Even though it may take me a couple of times to fully understand the current situation and what I'm looking at and why Kathy had no problem explaining it to me till I understood it. Her staff was always on top of everything and as a young father who had a child out of wedlock goes in the state of Florida, 47% time sharing is a pretty good accomplishment for us fathers who truly want to be in our child's life. Even the child support is a manageable amount. The best part is I'm 50/50 in legal matters of my baby girl which I owe it all to Kathy George.

  • Very knowledgeable about the subject matter of divorce.
    I hired Kathy George to review self-prepared divorce documents for filing. Kathy was very quick to respond with the information we needed and made suggestions of things we had not thought of; she is very knowledgeable about the subject matter of divorce; and easy and pleasant to work with. She answered all our questions in a professional and timely manner; which helped us get the case filed sooner than expected. If we need additional assistance, I have no doubt Ms. George will be there to assist us along the way in the same professional, courteous manner.

    - Cindy

  • She will not let you down.
    Working with Mrs. George was an amazing experience. She was very impressive. I have worked with many lawyers in the past and had bad experiences every time. I would recommend Kathy to all my friends and family as well as anyone needing a lawyer. She will not let you down. Kathy was extremely reliable and very informative as well as always available for me at any time.

    - Matt

  • Five-star lawyer.
    I retained Kathy George for a DVI case and she was outstanding. She is knowledgeable, well organized, responsive, professional, a person with great character, ethical behavior, and high moral values. You are doing a disservice to your own case if you do not retain this well deserved five-star lawyer.

    - Steve

  • She played an important role in getting my life back
    I met Kathy during the lowest and scariest time of my life. She represented me during my divorce and she listened to all my questions and concerns and knew what needed to be done and when and how to do it. She was always available to answer my questions and concerns and now 2 years later I know she played an important role in getting my life back not just for me but also for my child. Divorce and child custody is never an easy matter but having Kathy as my attorney helped me so much. Her staff is also very knowledgeable and courteous and very nice to work with. They have all been gracious and kind to me. Billing and financial issues have never been a problem and if I had any questions or concerns they were always addressed. I would highly recommend Kathy.

  • You will not regret your decision to hire Kathy George.
    Let me start by saying that prior to meeting Kathy I could have never imagined writing a positive review of any attorney. My prior experience with the family court system was frustrating, to say the least. I am active duty military stationed outside of the state of Florida. Kathy and her team stepped in for my original attorney who had a scheduling conflict during my case and I could not have been more satisfied with the move. With the compressed timeline and lack of prior knowledge of my case, she reorganized the information and ensured that my families needs/wants were made a priority. During my trial, she was composed, eloquent, and best of all aggressive for my case. I can not say that you will 100% win your case because there are no guarantees in court. I CAN tell you that if you don't hire Kathy and her team to represent your interests...you should be afraid that your opposition will. I would/will be honored to recommend her to anyone that needs a fighter in their case. You will not regret your decision to hire Kathy George.

    - Mike

  • She's worth every penny she costs.

    Kathy is a real, straight up person. She's worth every penny she costs. She will not give you bad advice. I'd be shocked if she ever lost a case. She is extremely helpful.

    - Christina H.

  • Kathy was more concerned about the child then herself.
    Every once in a while you come across an honest attorney that is more concerned with a client than money. Kathy is one of those honest attorneys. Obviously, attorneys need to get paid just like the rest of us. It was just nice working with someone whose primary interest was doing what was right and getting a fair deal for their client. This is a classic case of the ex fighting aggressively because they would rather give the money to their attorney then support their child. The attorney for the ex was more than happy to take the money that should have gone to the child and didn't care that the child was going without because of it. Kathy was more concerned about the child then herself and that made everything easier.

  • I always feel protected with Kathy by my side.
    I have been a client with Kathy George for many years now. My case has been long and complex and very stressful. I have been in and out of court numerous times over the years, and while no attorney can control the judge's decision, I always feel protected with Kathy by my side. She knows the judges, she knows what they will accept and what they won't and she can give you a good deal of how they will rule and advise you on the best way to present your case to support your desired outcome. She has always been realistic with setting my expectations and has a strategy when entering the courtroom. She meets with you before each hearing to discuss her strategy and always makes sure you are comfortable with her approach. She's an expert negotiator and tries her best to keep you out of court, but if you have to go to court, she's a bulldog in the courtroom. She's professional, but she knows her family law and she digs in and really fights for you. Court is nerve-wracking, but I feel so much better having Kathy by my side. I truly feel my family's best interests are being protected. Her documents are air tight and I have had documents that she's written hold up years later. My case is still ongoing, due to a difficult ex, but Kathy has been there each step of the way and has protected me and my family throughout the years. Great attorney. Professional, knowledgeable, tough when it calls for it.

  • She's top notch.
    Kathy George recently handled my divorce case. I was very pleased with her as my lawyer. She was very helpful and really did a great job for me. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a good lawyer. In my book, she's top notch and I believe that we got the best deal we could have possibly gotten. Thank you so much, Kathy.

    - Robert B.

  • She answered every question I had, always emailed me back.

    I used Lindsey French and she was FANTASTIC, everything was fast and easy. My ex husband wanted to drag me through the mud. Lindsey DID NOT ALLOW IT! She answered every question I had, always emailed me back. I walked away with my house and I didn't even have to buy him out! If you need an aggressive attorney, Lindsey French is the way to go. She got me my life back.

    - Frances

  • I am so thankful for everything she has done for me.
    I have been through a divorce and a custody battle for 4 years! I originally hired 2 other attorneys that wanted to make money and never solve the problems, Ms. French took over the case and had a plan right from the start. She is always prepared for court and her staff is excellent. Every time I called the office she always spoke with me to resolve issues unlike other attorneys. I am so thankful for everything she has done for me.

    - Brent

  • I would recommend Lindsey and the entire Kathy C. George staff.

    Unfortunately Divorce brought me into Lindsey's Office. From the beginning she was very honest and up front with me and the process of Divorce itself. She answered every question that I had either via email or by phone. When my trial date finally arrived Lindsey was the most prepared Lawyer in the room! And I truly believe that because of that preparation and her commitment to her client that I/We came away with an extremely favorable judgement. I would recommend Lindsey and the entire Kathy C. George staff. Ladies you were OUTSTANDING!!!

    Thank you again.

  • I would highly recommend her with complete confidence in her ability to do what is right for her client.

    I could not have hired a better person to represent me in my divorce. From the time I walked into her office she listened to everything I had to say and was very helpful and respectful. I was having a very hard time through the whole process but she was always there for me professionally and personally. I would highly recommend her with complete confidence in her ability to do what is right for her client. Thank you very much Lindsey for being there for me not only as my attorney but also as a friend when I needed it.

    - Lisa

  • She is efficient, and she kept me up to date on any developments in my case.

    Lindsey is incredible. She is efficient, and she kept me up to date on any developments in my case. I had a custody issue where time was very much of the essence and Lindsey was able to expedite the case. I would highly recommend her to anybody seeking a family attorney.
