Northern Virginia criminal lawyer Jon KatzNEVER PROSECUTED; NEVER WILL

In law school, great currency is placed on being able to argue both sides of a controversy equally well. That is all well and good when no real people’s lives and liberty are on the line. However, when a criminal defense lawyer truly knows s/he is on the side of the angels, that is the extra oomph for finding gold among the seeming feces of a prosecution.

Jon Katz knows he is on the side of the angels with criminal defense. He has successfully defended thousands of criminal and DUI defendants since 1991. To this very day, he deeply feels the thrill of obtaining justice for his accused clients.

When arrested, your battle has just begun. No matter how untruthful or not or how unfair or not are the allegations against you, you now are in the crosshairs of the criminal court system, and your only choice is to fight for your liberty. A key part of that fight is to obtain the right lawyer to work as a team with you in pursuing the best possible result. Jon Katz not only has the experience and dedication to do that, but also full understanding and empathy for your plight, not only in the courthouse, but also as to such collateral matters as your reputation, career, security clearance, and immigration status.

Fighting for criminal and DUI defendants is a calling that Northern Virginia criminal lawyer Jon Katz pursues because he believes strongly in this path, loves working with his clients, and loves winning. When you hire Jon, you have the peace of mind that he is always on your side.
