Kathryn is great. I called many law firms starting in 2013. I left message after message for days. I sent her an email and the same day she called me back after working hours, after 8 pm and spent two hours on the phone with me. She made me feel safe in my greatest time of need. Not only is she a dedicated professional but she treats you like family. She worked two cases for me in 2013 some charges were misdemeanors and some felonies. When all said and done I was a free man and able to stay a husband and a father. When she goes to bat she goes all the way. Here it is 2015 and we still talk. I keep her on retainer and wouldn't go anywhere else for my legal matters.
Thanks Kathryn. Your the best.
Kathryn is a truly an exceptional lawyer. As a client for over 5 years, she has been a guidepost for me as I navigate true life changing decisions. Her attention to detail and 'leveled' approach to challenges creates trust that you will not find with most Lawyers. No matter how difficult your case, you will not go wrong in choosing Kathryn as your lawyer.

Kathryn Boortz has assisted me twice. She first helped bring to resolution my original case which had some very unique mitigating circumstances, but I was nevertheless facing a very serious charge. She got to know me (personally) and the details of my case well enough to see that the usual penalties and future ramifications for this type of case (even with a favorable plea bargain -- based on this county's history with similar cases) were not justified.
She really went outside the box in how she approached the prosecutor on the case, made a compelling argument on my behalf with all details firmly in her grasp, and convinced the prosecutor to nolle pros the original case completely and open another case with another charge in a whole other category under the law (not just a lesser included). This was a huge deal because 1) It had NEVER been done before in this county for this type of charge, 2) It allowed me to plea under the First Offender Act to have a future without this case haunting me forever, and 3) I was placed on probation only.
The second time I worked with Ms. Boortz was to try to get that probation terminated early. Even though a petition to terminate probation is a fairly routine process (generally speaking), she gathered every possible detail about the original case (again), everything that has happened since then, and many other peripheral details that most attorneys wouldn't bother to look into.
She worked her "outside the box" magic once again. Instead of just filing a Petition to Terminate and asking for a hearing, she arranged a meeting with the prosecutor, went in there armed with every conceivable piece of information she might need (and knew the information backward and forward in her mind as well!), and made a strong argument on my behalf. I should also say that this particular "category" of charge is not one for which this county typically entertains early terminations...especially on First Offender cases. Not only did Ms. Boortz succeed in getting my probation terminated early, she got it done with the prosecutor's support as a consent agreement so that no hearing would be required!
I cannot thank her enough for her professionalism, her attention to detail, her creative solutions to daunting challenges, her knowledge of the system, and her determination to get the best possible result. Because of Kathryn Boortz, I have a second chance at a bright future!

I have over 30 year's experience in industry both domestically and internationally. From my recent interactions with Ms Boortz I can highly recommend her skills as an outstanding attorney. She is experienced, ethical, and personable. She also has very good contacts / connections in the greater Atlanta area. From my viewpoint, Ms Boortz's representation can have a huge, positive outcome on a case with the desired results of a dismissal and / or reduction in a charge. If any member of your family need a caring professional's help in a situation where you are inexperienced we would strongly recommend you contact Kathryn Boortz. Without hesitation we would use Ms Boortz's services again in the future and also recommend her to all our contacts in Atlanta.

Kathryn was honest, professional and achieved a positive resolution for me. The overall experience was excellent, in that she was genuine and it was reassuring that she had my best interests in mind. She was also very well organized and provided excellent communication.

My first (and hopefully last) exposure to the criminal justice system in a long life arose from my own momentary misjudgment, resulting in a non-vehicular misdemeanor which could easily have gone very badly. Kathryn's representation made all the difference - she made sure I knew what to expect from the start without any sugar-coating, and her sincere and professional approach with the court made all the proceedings go as smoothly and quickly as one could possibly hope for. I received a full dismissal after satisfying some administrative conditions, and in far less time than I expected. I would enthusiastically recommend Kathryn to anyone.
--R.W., April 2014
Kathryn did a great job handling my pretty difficult criminal defense case. She kept me well-informed as things progressed and I was very pleased with the outcome of my case and her professionalism and expertise.
--B.W., April 2014
I am very pleased to highly recommend Kathryn Boortz. She handled my case with a great deal of empathy, professionalism, enthusiasm and determination. Kathryn kept me appraised of any developments in my case which was a great comfort. She exhibited a steady and strong hand, which made me feel as safe and secure as possible. I would gladly hire Kathryn again.

I am very satisfied. My expectations have been met and I feel comfortable and confident about the outcome of the case. Attorney Kathryn Boortz is very thorough and professional. I have a new legal contact, a new friend, and how well this went puts my mind at ease in case I manage to get into trouble again.

Kathryn is one of the most humble, yet skilled, attorneys I know. Her passion and expertise go far beyond most in her field. And, I have never met any attorney with as much willingness to ensure proper client representation. She does her research, dots the "i's" and crosses the "t's" and is best known for her well-prepped client binders/folders. Not only would I endorse her, I have used her services on multiple occasions from major cases to minor estate documents. If you are looking for someone to believe has your best interest at heart, then look no further than Kathryn Boortz.

I searched for a lawyer in my darkest hour and was led to Mrs . Boortz and for every step through my legal unknown she guided me with sincerity and protection. She would always meet or call and plan strategies weeks ahead of a court appointment . After turning myself in , Mrs Boortz came the next day, the Judge told me I couldn't get bail thus triggering an immediate response from Mrs. Boortz ; " You [have] the authority to grant him bail your honor" The Judge became confuse[d] as she took the time to correct him as to where in the law he could do that. He subsequently granted me bail after her proceedings.
Over the next year and a half the prosecutor told me that I could be looking at 100 plus years in prison if i'm found guilty or about 35 years if served concurrently . However with much prayer and a great Lawyer who I will ever be grateful for I was placed on probation. Mrs. Boortz won all the major court request even one that the prosecutor thought she couldn't. I am soooooo thankful and appreciate the power of this smart and one of a kind Lawyer, Mrs Boortz if you can get a decision like that ! You should be publish and promoted on CNN. FOX. NBC. etc.
Mrs Boortz I wish I could say enough thanks , but even over the next hundred year I would n't have enough tongue to do so, so with a trillion to a trillion cube : THANK YOU.

Kathryn Jones Boortz is an exceptional lawyer! She has a way of making her client feel comfortable. She makes her client feel that everything is going to be alright; then she produces results that bring that claim to light. I was in deep trouble. I was facing a Felony and two Misdemeanors. Kathryn Boortz represented me, and had the entire case thrown out. In the end, I was only convicted of two Misdemeanors: Disorderly Conduct and Reckless Conduct. She saved my good standing in the community, and made it possible for me to gain employment. An extraordinary lawyer! I highly recommend Kathryn Jones Boortz. You will NOT be disappointed!
---M.B., January 2013
I can not begin to express with words how much I appreciate your performance at my trial. I wish that there was something I could do or give you to accomodate what you've done for me. You've given me the greatest gift I have ever received for the holiday season, a second chance. I am forever in debt to you. I have faith in you Ms. Jones, you will be labeled a winner for many years to come.
Thanks, Kathryn. You changed my life for the better and I will always be grateful.
Our family would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas. We appreciate your assistance with [our son's] case. May the Lord bless you and yours during the coming year. You are the BEST!

I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for your help on Tuesday. I really appreciate all the time and effort that you have given my case. I am very pleased with your professionalism in court and your determination to give me the absolute best representation. Thank you very much and have a great weekend.
Thank you for representing me in the matter. However, rest assured; I will not need your services again. You are very talented. You handled yourself with great confidence and skill and administered the court process with the highest sensitivity and professionalism! It's obvious you had the "ear" of the Solicitor and the Court. I am satisfied with the outcome. Thank you again and good luck in your career!
