  • Great Criminal Defense Lawyer

    I must say after hiring Mr. Katz, I did feel a little skeptical, I felt like the pace for handling my case was moving to slow, as my court date neared I must admit that I was nervous but on my court date Jon sat me down told me what I maybe up against and this is what his counter offer to the Prosecutor would be. I provided the homework assignments recommended by Jon “Do The Assignments”, working his magic Jon presented the counter to the Prosecutor and came out with an Unbelievable result, I was so happy, basically I just had to pay a fine and everything else was dismissed. I understand no 2 cases are the same but Jon is Great!, he really does care about his clients and will go to bat for you. I will recommend Mr. Jon Katz to anyone looking for a Great Criminal Defense Attorney as always Thanks Mr. Katz For All You Do. One Happy Client.:-)

  • The BEST DUI/Criminal Lawyer You Can Get

    I was in a difficult spot when I retained Jon’s service as I had been charged with a DUI. Given the circumstances of my case, Jon was able to get charges reduced to reckless driving with no adverse license issues. Jon will definitely go to bat for and was the most positive experience I have had with a lawyer. I would highly recommend Jon to anyone in need of legal counsel.

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.
