  • Excellent Criminal Defense Attorney

    Excellent criminal defense attorney in Fairfax. Jon represented me on 3 very unfair misdemeanor charges the County was insistent on pursuing, including assault. In court Jon was able to get 2 of the charges dropped and a not guilty verdict on the assault charge without even having to put me on the stand (which helps for any potential parallel civil matters). His staff was a pleasure to work with and incredibly professional and responsive. Jon’s direct style and approach is efficient and I was very thankful for it when I received a refund at the end that I wasn’t expecting! Very glad that I chose him.

Fairfax criminal lawyer / Virginia DUI attorney Jonathan L. Katz knows that Virginia has a harsh criminal justice system that fortunately is seeing some turnaround in terms of a chief prosecutor in Fairfax and other parts of the commonwealth who recognize the need to be more enlightened about the rights and plights of criminal defendants, and a state legislature that is bringing Virginia further from the criminal justice dark ages. Nonetheless, prosecutors have their own prosecution agenda and legislators serve their constituencies. One's criminal defense lawyer is a criminal defendant's only true friend in the courthouse.

A Virginia criminal or DUI conviction (under Va. Code § 18.2-266) risks not only penalties in state court, but also damage to one's reputation, career, security clearance, health care licensing, and immigration status. Fairfax criminal defense lawyer Jon Katz finds out what is most important to you for your defense and pursues your best possible defense while also pushing against the foregoing adverse collateral consequences from a conviction and against adverse sentences.

Among the many Fairfax criminal defense lawyers you may be considering, Jon Katz has successfully defended thousands of clients prosecuted for alleged Virginia felony, misdemeanor and DUI offenses. Call 703-383-1100 for a free in-person confidential consultation and action plan for your court-pending Virginia criminal or DWI case.

How should a Virginia criminal defendant challenge a felony, misdemeanor or DUI prosecution?

Hire a criminal defense lawyer who will fight for you every step of the way in court, who will never judge you, and who always will have your back. That is Fairfax criminal lawyer Jon Katz's credo.

At your very first meeting with Virginia criminal attorney / Fairfax DUI lawyer Jon Katz, he will listen closely to you, and provide you with a tailor-made defense action plan, addressing his initial approach to pursuing your best defense in Virginia criminal and DUI court, and offering you proactive steps that you can take in the process.
