Meet Katherine E. Macdonald

I am Katherine E. Macdonald, and from my law firm in Gainesville I represent clients throughout north central Florida in family law, divorce, probate and estate administration and estate planning. I received my Juris Doctorate with honors from the University of Florida and was admitted to The Florida Bar in 1983.

I am proud to come from a long line of attorneys, including several generations of attorneys in Nova Scotia. My father, W.D. Macdonald, was a University of Florida law school professor for several decades, and my brother, John B. Macdonald, is an attorney.

Paralegal Melissa Salyer has been with me since 1988. A graduate of Santa Fe College with an Associate of Arts and Associate of Science (legal assistant/paralegal), Melissa is an experienced and valuable resource and provides clients with top-notch customer service.
