Prince William Criminal Defense Lawyer

Criminal attorney pursuing your best defense in Prince William County & Manassas

Criminal & DUI defense

Prince William County has one of Virginia's busiest courthouses. located in Manassas. Virginia Criminal lawyer Jon Katz since 1991 has repeatedly defended clients charged with criminal and DUI offenses in the county court, which is one county away from Jon's Fairfax County, Virginia office.

Although parts of Prince William County are rural, this is one of Virginia's second most populous counties, and includes such highly populated areas as Woodbridge and Manassas. On top of that, plenty of people pass through the county on such major highways as Route 95 and Route 66.

Prince William County has a law and order courthouse, calling all the more for a qualified criminal defense lawyer

Prince William County has had a thriving immigrant community, but the county is far from being at any risk of becoming a sanctuary county nor to have sanctuary cities. This is a law and order county, although the chief prosecutor who took office in January 2020 is in some respects more reformist than her predecessor.

The Prince William County courthouse, in Manassas off of Route 28, has six Circuit Court judges, five General District Court judges, and five Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court judges.

Prince William County is three counties away from Washington, D.C., and its jurors are generally law and order jurors. who should not be expected to be initially skeptical about police and prosecutors.

Unless the criminal defense lawyer schedules a hearing to obtain discovery in advance of the General District Court trial date, Prince William prosecutors may generally only agree to sign an order to provide discovery on the trial date.

Commonly the first trial date can be continued on that date in General District Court, but it important to have a lawyer on the first trial date so as not to get caught behind the eight ball.

The Circuit Court's criminal procedural information can be found here and here.

Prince William criminal lawyer Jonathan L. Katz repeatedly defends in the Manassas, Prince William County court, since 1999. To discuss your case with Jon Katz, in confidence, please call his staff for an appointment, at 703-383-1100.

  • Great Lawyer

    Jon was introduced to us by a family friend, he is one of the top Criminal Defense lawyers in Fairfax, Virginia. From our first meeting with him, we could tell he was an expert in his field and during a challenging time he provided us with guidance and a comforting environment to work on my son’s case. When we had questions or needed his assistance Jon was always a phone call away. He worked diligently to support us through the complex process of defending our case and was able to secure a settlement for my son. I couldn’t have asked for better representation while we navigated a challenging time for our family with the added hardship of the initial Covid-19 lockdown. He fought to move our case along when resources were limited. I am grateful for the honesty and integrity he maintained throughout our conversations. You can count on him to take on difficult criminal cases and provide a winning solution. Our family will be forever thankful for his help.
