Criminal Defense Lawyer Pursuing Your Best Defense

Jon Katz

Your Virginia Criminal Defense and DUI Lawyer

Email: Jon@BeatTheProsecution.com

All that matters to Fairfax criminal lawyer Jon Katz is that you are in need of a first-rate Virginia DUI lawyer or criminal defense attorney. Criminal defense is a calling for Jon Katz, stemming from his decades of devotion to protecting everyone's civil liberties, starting with his human rights work with Amnesty International during college (Tufts University, B.A. 1985). That drive to protect people's rights led Jon to attend law school (George Washington Law School, J.D. 1989), and to begin his criminal defense career for five years as a public defender lawyer, when he attended the intensive and highly-selective two-week Trial Practice Institute of the National Criminal Defense College (1994) and the four-week Trial Lawyers College. Jonathan Katz speaks fluent French and proficient Spanish, helping him even further to deliver high-quality Fairfax and Virginia criminal and DUI defense without borders. Jonathan Katz gets as much of a thrill with each court victory today as when he started pursuing the best defense for criminal and DUI defendants.
