Courageous Representation

with Proven Results.

My name is Jackie Gonz, and for over 27 years, I have helped countless men and women navigate through tricky divorces, resolve difficult custody and paternity issues, and tackle the unfortunate situations where personal injury has occurred.

High Asset Divorce

I’m known for being aggressive on my clients’ behalf so you can focus on the important areas of your life. I will be honest with you, as a no-nonsense person. I will tell a person what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. I do fight but I also know when it is best to settle. I do not tell people things to simply get a dollar. If you find my approach reliable and trustworthy, then we will make a great team.

Do You Need Legal Help In One Of These Three 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.

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

Legal situations are complex, stressful, and frightening. It doesn’t matter what your circumstances are or your past experience with the legal system, I guarantee that I will not let you go through your situation alone. I serve clients throughout the southeast Missouri counties of Ste. Genevieve, Perry, Jefferson, and St. Francois, but I give each of them my undivided attention and full commitment.

Winston Churchill 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. As badly as you want the worry, frustration, and pain to go away, these situations require hard work and patience to resolve. I promise that I am here to do the hard work and help you navigate the things you can’t. My years of experience have shown me many things about the legal system, other attorneys, the worst of circumstances, and the need to be the best attorney I can be for my clients. Let me help you!

And Always Give You, Honest, Straightforward Answers 

Many people think their legal problems will go away by having a lawyer that does everything according to the convenience and comfort of the client. If you are looking for someone to simply placate you and tell you what you want to hear, I am not the attorney for you. I believe in your success so much that I will tell you what you need to hear, whether you like it or not. There are situations that are easy to resolve and there are situations that are messy. I will tell you what you are facing and do everything possible to turn it in your favor. A productive relationship doesn’t work on flattery or patronizing remarks. It requires honesty, which is what I will deliver. However, I will also empathize and understand what you are going through.

Going forward, 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?
