I Leverage over 27 Years of Legal Experience to Bring You Hope … and One Hell of a Fight!

My name is Jackie Gonz, and for over 27 years, I’ve been helping my clients navigate tricky divorces, difficult custody and paternity issues, bankruptcy, and the unfortunate personal injury. I’m known for being aggressive on my clients’ behalf so you can focus on the important areas of your life. The greatest honors I have are representing people and guiding them through a time of crisis.

Do You Need Legal Help In One Of These Four Areas?


Whether your divorce will be uncontested, needs negotiated, or is headed to court litigation, I will help you through the process.

Family Law

As a parent myself, I understand the emotions arising from adoption, custody and child support, and paternity battles.


Sometimes starting over is what my clients need and a bankruptcy is sometimes the best choice. I’ll guide you through this tough decision.

Personal Injury

Bad things happen to good people every day. If you were injured, I will fight for you and be aggressive as I can to hopefully recover your losses.

I Promise, I’ll do the Hard Work for You

I’m Jackie Gonz, a lawyer with decades of experience, covering clients throughout the southeast Missouri counties of Ste. Genevieve, Perry, Jefferson, and St. Francois. You might have found this page because you are going through a hard time. You might be overwhelmed with fear and be facing one of the hardest circumstances of your life.

Winston Churchhill famously said, “When you’re going through Hell, keep going.” The troubles of divorce, financial problems, and custody or support issues don’t simply go away – they take hard work and problem solving. However, you are not alone. I am here to do the hard work and help you navigate the things you can’t. Let me help you!

And Always Give You, Honest, Straightforward Answers 

If all you want is someone who will tell you what you want to hear, then you should go elsewhere, because that’s not who I am and not what I believe in for my clients. I always tell you what you need to hear – in every good or bad situation, even in an ugly circumstance. Even if the situation isn’t good, though, I will do everything possible to turn it in your favor.

You need to understand your options and rights: What is the best thing that could happen? The worst thing? How likely are we to be successful? With me, you always get the full, straightforward, clear truth – and don’t you deserve that?
