Plainly stated, Jason was a great attorney for me. He's very friendly, but didn't pretend to be my lifelong friend. He's very professional, but he isn't stodgy or clinical. I can't imagine that any attorney could be more knowledgable about the process and possible outcomes. The only promise Jason ever made me was that he'd work as hard as possible to get me the best possible result - and I'm confident that's what he did. I ended up resolving my case with an outcome that was well beyond my wildest hopes, and there is no possible way I could have done that without a lawyer like Jason. There were times in between my court dates that I had to ask Jason for information or updates because I hadn't heard anything for a few weeks. In retrospect, that's because there was nothing new on my case. I would have appreciated hearing that from time to time, but a lawyer as good as Jason is probably pretty busy most of the time. Now that my case is resolved, he is still answering my questions and providing me with advice on my resolution. Perhaps the best endorsement I can give is this: if I ever find myself in trouble with the law again, my first phone call will be to Jason.

Simply the most comforting and thoughtful person you can have working on your behalf. A true expert with all the knowledge to make you get the best results. I met with several attorneys at the time and Jason stood out as an extremely organized professional who new the system well. He will go the extra mile and worth every dollar. He is well respected in DC and to have him on your side counts for a lot.

Jason worked extremely hard and was proactive in getting my charges dismissed during a pretrial hearing. My case involved many different factors and witnesses that aren't typical in DUI cases, but he helped me every step of the way. The combination of his knowledge, experience, relationships with the prosecution, and resources from his law firm provides every advantage you need to fight your case. As I stated in the title for this review, I highly recommend Jason Kalafat.

Jason was just a god send. I found him online and am so glad I chose to call him. He helped me through the process and went through all the steps with me. I doubt I would have such a positive outcome if it were not for his help.

Jason helped me to get several hefty felony charges down to 1 year probation cannot explain throughly enough how excellent a lawyer he was

I was facing DUI charges and searched the Internet for a laywer, where i found Mr. Kalafat. After meeting with Jason, I was immediately relieved and could tell i was in good hands. He fought for me and after I complete some minor community service, my charge will be completely dismissed. He is the best, and I would recommend him to anyone facing criminal charges. Thanks, Jason!

Jason came highly recommended by a friend of mine who found himself in the same unfortunate scenario in a previous year. He said to go with Jason as he was known as the best in DC.. In addition to my friend, I heard about Jason from other acquaintances who had said that he was the only person to speak to if looking to get the best representation with the highest chance of getting off so to speak. I was not let down and everyone was right.
He is brilliant and knows his stuff well! Also he is well respected in the Prosecutor's Office and hence commands a level of attention I would imagine no other lawyer gets.
Having said all that, the best thing about Jason is that he is compassionate and possess a warm personality that will make you feel comfortable and safe the whole time.
If you don't go with him - you are making a big mistake.

As someone with a third offense DUI charge, I was satisfied with the results of Jason’s work. He was able to get me a great plea deal and I got the minimum mandatory sentence that DC had for my charge. He gave me a great understanding of all potential outcomes throughout the whole process, and told me what all of my options were. He explained all of the steps along the way and I always felt like he had my best interests in mind. He never made me feel like he was making decisions for me, but gave me great advice so that I could make the best decisions for myself. I felt like he always told me what I needed to hear. He responded to all of my emails very quickly and always reminded me when I had court dates. He had a great presence in court and was able to communicate very well about my story and what exactly happened. I would absolutely recommend Jason Kalafat and Price Benowitz LLP to other folks with a DUI charge.

I searched online for firms in the DC area that dealt in cases similar to mine. I contacted Price Benowitz and the intake person put me in touch with Jason Kalafat the next day. This was uncharted territory for me and I was looking for someone who could explain everything to me. Jason was very informative and clear with what he needed from me to proceed. I got the impression that Jason was someone who would tell me like it is. Throughout the process he was very fair in his assessments as to what I could expect and gave me the best and worst case scenarios. Every time we went to court the process was quick and he kept me informed on what I could expect to happen. There were never any surprises. Before each meeting Jason and I were regularly in contact and he would explain what was going on. For the most part, Jason was responsive and would contact me by the next day. I was very satisfied with the end results of my case, as much as anyone in my situation could. I would recommend Jason Kalafat. Everything about this process was something I would never want to experience again, but Jason was considerate, approachable and thoughtful of the situation.
