Jon is the kind of lawyer who will fight fiercely for you

I have known Jon for nearly 2 decades. At the beginning of that happy time, I was a whelp of a lawyer, and Jon always offered me mentorship and advice. I have merely offered him referrals of clients who might need his services. Every one of them has given me the highest praise feedback about Jon’s abilities.

Jon is the kind of lawyer who will fight fiercely for you, but do so in a way that is designed to bring down the emotional level in a case. That always benefits the client.

If you are in need of a lawyer, you will not regret hiring this excellent legal mind and kind man.

Professional and thorough approach

I’ve known Jon as a colleague and friend for decades. There is no lawyer who cares more about the people he represents and is more dedicated to a professional and thorough approach to defense of one’s Constitutional rights than Jon. He would be my first pick to go to if I ever needed a criminal law defender.

A truly fierce advocate for his clients

I am fellow lawyer in the community and Jon is a truly fierce advocate for his clients who has zero fear of taking on the government. Having watched Jon in court, I have also seen that he is meticulous in his preparation and possesses a real knowledge of the law. Unlike many criminal defense attorneys, he engages in critical pretrial litigation that aids in winning cases or achieving better negotiated results. I have no hesitation in endorsing him.

His eye does not miss a detail, and is quick to point out discrepancies in the prosecution's evidence

fantastic attorney….defended me on a possession charge in Maryland. Was thorough and never skipped any details, I follow jon on his underdog blog, and have learned much. His eye does not miss a detail, and is quick to point out discrepancies in the prosecution’s evidence. I also enjoy his posting on trips to historical sites, as Jon is an avid fan of civil rights events, past and present…I would highly suggest hiring Jon whether it is a traffic violation, or a higher case.

Jon puts in the hours for his clients, day-and-night

Jon is a resilient, persistent, and passionate Fairfax criminal and DUI defense lawyer. As his former legal assistant, I was able to witness first-hand Jon’s expert criminal defense practice. I sat beside him in court while he vigorously defended an 8-pound marijuana trial, where he obtained a not-guilty verdict. Jon puts in the hours for his clients, day-and-night. As a newly-licensed attorney, I strive to model my own practice after Jon’s, who sets the gold-standard for the legal profession.

An outstanding job and the great outcome

I wanted to give a strong recommendation to Jon Katz for his amazing work in my defense. Jon is located in Fairfax Virginia and is a criminal defense attorney and also works DUI cases.

I was faced with a difficult, hard to prove court case. Jon organized a team of experts at a reasonable cost. Then on the day of the hearing he negotiated a good offer from the prosecutor.

In the hearing room he told me that he saw a way to do even better. This amazing strategy proved effective with the case being thrown out.

I want to express my thanks for an outstanding job and the great outcome. Your strategy was spectacular. Thank you.

He worked hard to get me a settlement so I could begin my new life

Jon Katz was introduced to me by my cousin’s boyfriend. When I met him for the first time, I was worried about what would happen to my life and future. Jon said keep doing “your homework” to change myself. He worked hard to get me a settlement so I could begin my new life. I was really relieved about it. I remember that when I first went to his office, he showed me that he loves Yoda from Star Wars. After the settlement, I was relieved so I called him “Yoda God”. Me and my family really thank him so much for everything. I am adjusting to my new life and am happy in Florida.

Skillful in spending his time in defense of the accused person

He is skillful in spending his time in defense of the accused person; he has knowledge, morals, culture, thinking, reminders, perseverance, and endurance; as he has also confidence in himself and sincerity in defense; moreover, he is skillful in his ability to suggest to the judge the arguments to ensure to win the case

I say these words as a result of my experience with him, which he did not fail or refuse to.

It was Jon's court savvy and experience that lead to a lesser charge

I stumbled into a misdemeanor charge; I responded immaturely to an act of aggression. My guilt was not in question, so understand there was only so much a lawyer could do for me. I had no experience with court and had no idea what to do or expect, so I turned to a law office I found on the web only to walk out more depressed after their gloomy outlook, Jail. It was a foreign cold dismissive experience talking to them, and I left wondering what have I done. My immaturity has put my future in their hands? I, fortunately even though I had little time, decided to continue looking and discovered Mr. Jon Katz. Jon, from the first meeting until our last contact, has a sympathetic warm way about him that engenders confidence. From the first meeting he focused on a method that not only developed his thorough interpretation of the event that led to my arrest but also with a focus on me, the human in difficulty. For some, that appreciation or sympathy may not matter, but it did to me. Jon’s method and candor helped me settle down and coup as I was depressed, unsure, and yes, scared. There are things suddenly on the plate to take care of when confronting a court case and Jon, and his staff, professionally promptly handle the court scheduling and documentation expectations/demands so all that potential stress is absorbed by them. But most importantly, it was Jon’s court savvy and experience that lead to a lesser charge. I was convicted as that was a given going in, but the punishment was community service not jail and for that I have Mr. Jon Katz to Thank. The last impression I choose to share is that Jon is driven, committed; Jon is a hard working determined legal mind. Mr. Jon Katz, and his prompt helpful staff, can help you prepare for and confront the court experience competently and confidently. Richard B.

He takes care his people like his family

When I first met him I had the feeling that he is the right person who can help me out. I couldn’t say I was worried about trial, but because of Jon I had less pressure. He pulls out some magical skill when he talks to prosecutor. Before the trial, I have no idea what he said to prosecutor but I bet it was something amazing that the prosecutor offered RAC driving. He takes care his people like his family. I highly recommend to hire Mr. Katz if you got arrested for DUI.

Very upfront about the process and expectations

I’m a 35 yr old college grad, with a typical NOVA contract gig, a growing business, and a family. I work hard during the day and at night I enjoy hanging out with my friend Mary Jane. We’ve been friends a long time and that friendship grew stronger after I was diagnosed with MS 2 years ago. Usually we only hang out at home but one night in June, I decided to drive her to a friends home to share the love. Around 3 am I left my friends house and headed home.

Less than 2 miles from home, a Fairfax County cop began to follow me. After about a mile, the cop pulls me over. I ask what’s the issue? The cop responds that my window tint is too dark. I explain that I’m driving a loaner car because mine is in the shop. At that point, she says that she smells marijuana. And I immediately regret not spraying myself down before heading home. Well back and forth convo, a car search and drug field test later, I’m issued a citation and told that I am required to appear in court for the charge of marijuana possession (less than 8 grams).

After beating myself up for a day or two, I turned to google to find out exactly how much trouble I was in with this charge. After reading horror stories about possession charges in Fairfax, I stumbled across Jon’s blog. I read EVERYTHING and EVERY REVIEW. I emailed him the next day. He called me himself the next day. At the consultation Jon was very upfront about the process and expectations in regards to his rate, my homework, and the possible outcomes of my case. Most importantly, I left that consultation feeling like he was on my side and would fight for me.

The court date. I’m a nervous wreck, couldn’t recall simple details. I cried. Jon kept me in check and DID NOT STOP WORKING. Jon Katz fought for me. He worked that courthouse, speaking with the prosecutor, the cop, and whoever else he needed to talk too.

The outcome. The prosecutor decided not to pursue the charges…Nolle Prosequi!

My advice. Get the homework done. Don’t leave out any details. Don’t wait until the last minute. I would recommend Jon Katz any day.

Jon defended me like the true champion he is in the Courtroom

After being involved in a car accident in Maryland, I was charged with several violations that I didn’t feel were justified and it put me in a position where I had to find a Defense Attorney to fight for me. I was referred to Jon because of his reputation and ability to practice across state lines. I got lucky and Jon defended me like the true champion he is in the Courtroom. If you are reviewing this page, there is a reason for it and trust me, you need to look no further. If I didn’t truly believe that, I wouldn’t be writing this review now.
