A good reminder and an explanation of how Florida court system is organized.
http://ow.ly/NGrGx
The highest Court in Florida is the Supreme Court, which is composed of seven Justices. At least five Justices must participate in every case and at least four must agree for a decision to be reached. The Court's official headquarters is the Supreme Court Building in Tallahassee.

I serve on multiple committees for the Florida Association of Women Lawyers, but my favorite one is the MAP committee - it is the membership advancement and promotion committee, where we work hard to help members around the state to obtain positions of leadership and achieve their career goals.

It is hard to believe that Justice Rosemary Barkett became the first Florida Supreme Court Justice in 1985. No women served on the Florida Supreme Court before her. http://ow.ly/NGroA
Justice Rosemary Barkett. The 71st Justice of the Court, Rosemary Barkett was the first woman to serve and the first female Chief Justice. Her career was a remarkable one. Early in life, Barkett joined a convent where she remained for many years. Later, the Convent's authorities released Barkett ...

We get calls in our office daily about traffic tickets, so I want to remind everyone that if you just pay your ticket - you will automatically get points. You can take traffic school 5 times in your lifetime and one time in 12 months. If you elect that option, please attend traffic school first, before paying your ticket. Some counties require you to let them know what option you choose: 1. pay it (don't do it!) 2. traffic school (avoid points and pay ticket) or 3. elect a hearing (handle on your own or hire a lawyer).

Here is a list of approved online schools. http://ow.ly/NGs14

National Association of Women Judges began the Informed Voters Project and Florida Association of Women Lawyer has started to spread the word. This is a movement to educate the public about the vital importance of fair and impartial judiciary. If you are an attorney and are interested in participating by speaking to civic groups about this subject, please contact me. We have presentations that have been developed for this purpose by Justice Barbara Pariente. Please watch this powerful video to learn more. : http://ow.ly/NGppJ

Law Offices of Kate Mesic, PA helps clients with DUI, criminal defense, expungement and traffic tickets.  We help our business clients with business disputes, contracts, litigation, collections and all areas of Small Business Law.

At the Law Offices of Kate Mesic, PA, we strive to provide all clients with a holistic experience.  In criminal cases, we defend the client’s rights and more importantly help them regain their lives and many times restore their families.  A criminal case is always stressful; our clients are terrified of what may happen to them, their job and their families. We understand that everyone makes mistakes and anyone could find themselves in a difficult situation.  Our job is to guide them through the process, educate them about the criminal justice system and restore them to a normal life, while minimizing consequences of the arrest and any charges.  By keeping people employed, by keeping families whole and by helping them to learn from this experience, it benefits the community by keeping people self- sufficient, not dependent on already stressed social services and out of overcrowded jails.

We also handle a variety of challenging issues for business owners, who are trying to manage and operate the day to day functions of their business.  Any legal issue faced by our clients, whether it is a simple incorporation or a contract dispute with a vendor, is always a confusing, intimidating and daunting experience for them.  Our job is to help them make sense of the process, feel confident in their management decisions and find a positive resolution.  As a business owner myself, I understand and empathize with the need to reduce stress and have the confidence necessary to continue to run a successful and profitable business.  In my experience, many business owners simply avoid tackling a legal issue because they fear a worst-case scenario.  I reassure them that with proper legal counsel they can make educated and informed decisions, to not only resolve the current legal issue, but minimize the chances of it happening in the future.

I needed to complete a large Licensing Agreement for the Department of the Navy. Half way through the agreement I was so confused I need help. I retained the Law Office of Kate Mesic to review the Agreement and translate the legal mumbo jumbo into plain English. Kate and her professional staff did an excellent job explaining the terms of the Agreement and my Company now is an Official Department of the Navy Licensee. I highly recommend Kate Mesic and her staff for all you legal needs.

After receiving unwarranted traffic citations, I was referred to Kate Mesic, I couldn’t have had a better lawyer! Her and her staff we’re very professional and quick to respond. I work different hours daily, but she was able to see me on a short notice. She gave me a reason not to worry about the situation and gave me new faith in the law system and that someone does care. I was more than happy from the outcome. I would recommend her services to anyone!!

Donald, thank you for your kind words! I am so glad we were able to help.

While my adult son was in town over the Christmas holiday, he was pulled over for driving without his headlights on after dark. (The Valet parking at his hotel had turned them off of AUTO.) He had consumed a few drinks over the course of the evening and the police officer asked him to do the breathalyzer test. When my son refused, he was taken to jail. I received a call from my daughter-in-law, early the next morning. I called Kate, as I had met her a few times and was impressed by her work ethic, knowledge of the law, professionalism and "humanness" . She was at home at the time of my call, but pulled up the arrest report etc. She told me what time the hearing before the judge was to be that afternoon and said she would meet me at the building where the hearing was to be. (Did I mention this was a Saturday morning?) By the time I arrived, Kate had already spoken to my son, collecting information necessary as she went along. When the judge entered his Chambers, Kate approached him immediately, asking that he hear my son's case first, for reasons that she had already informed us of. Already, I'm impressed, but it only got better. Because Kate is so motivated to help her clients, is extremely intelligent, and has extensive knowledge and understanding of the law and the system's processes, she proactively met with the Prosecutor and was able to get the charges reduced to a lesser charge. This resulted in a SIGNIFICANTLY better outcome for my son. Kate went above and beyond what she was paid to do, in many ways. One of which was letting my son know, in no uncertain terms, the seriousness of this matter and exactly what he needed to do to follow the exact rules of the law. She let him know exactly what the consequences would be, should he not. She kept in touch with my son the whole step of the way; consulting, counseling and yes, checking, to make sure he stayed on track with dates and responsibilities. Yes, Kate is one of a kind! Her ethics, drive, expertise and support was impressive and reassuring to both my son and myself. She is No. 1 in Northeast Florida, as far as we are concerned. I am confident if we have the opportunity to work with this wonderful attorney again, it will under different circumstances, but the end results will be the same.

The Law Offices of Kate Mesic handled a traffic citation for me. She and her staff were courteous and expeditious in their services. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of her services on my behalf.

Ms. Mesic and her paralegal were so professional, knowledgeable, and communicative. I was cited for running a couple of stop signs, and the attorney was great at explaining my options and how to get these citations dismissed. She made me feel like I was in good hands - and I was. She got my tickets set aside, and her paralegal quickly informed me about the outcome of the hearing. I could not have asked for a better counsel.

Raya, thank you for your kind words! it was a pleasure to work with you.

Kate has been extremely helpful in my time of need. She is everything that I could ask for in a lawyer and has treated me like family in regards to giving me sound legal advice for when I needed it most. She is highly knowledgeable and very professional. And for this, she will continue to be my lawyer of choice for anything I need in the future.

By far the best in Jacksonville! Attorney Kate Mesic went above and beyond my expectations. Kate was able to explain every step of the legal process helping me understand each and every option available. Her level of experience and knowledge helped lead me in the right direction without any doubt. I will not only be referring her, but will not hesitate to use her again. Attorney Kate Mesic is by far the best in Jacksonville.

I had the opportunity to work with Kate this last year. She did an incredible job for me. She was professional and thorough. She walked me through the legal process and supported me the entire time. I highly recommend Kate to anyone in Jacksonville in need of her legal services.
