Jason is a great attorney!

I hired Jason recently and do not regret it. He was very knowledgeable and helped guide me through this confusing time. Jason really fought for me and was quick to respond to all my emails. He made sure I understood at all times what was happening. I never walked into court not knowing what to expect. I definitely recommend Jason as an attorney.
The best attorney in DC for DUI's!!!!
Posted by: a DUI client, 14 days ago.
I’m from California originally so I had no frame of reference for DC attorneys. I did a web search for DC attorneys and found Jason Kalafat. My friend had worked with Shawn Sukumar, another attorney at Price Benowitz LLP. I called into the office and was spoke with the Client Management Team. They were very helpful and they let me know that I was in good hands and really added a personal touch to the process. They set up a time for me to speak to Jason in person. He was very prepared and had a very frank and optimistic assessment of my case. I felt like Jason was very honest and up from with me from the beginning. The office was a very warm and welcoming environment. Throughout the whole process I felt very well taken care of by the office in dealing with Jason and the other attorneys. They also worked with my budget and offered me a payment plan that I could work with. It was worth every penny. I could tell from Jason’s courtroom presence and interactions with other attorneys at court that he’s someone who is very well liked and well respected. I could definitely tell that I was in good hands. I was found not guilty and Jason did a phenomenal job in representing him. I would trust Jason with my mother. He’s someone who is very easy to talk to. This is not an experience I ever want to go through again, but if I ever am in that situation I would definitely go with Price Benowitz and Jason Kalafat. He exceeded my expectations throughout the whole process.

I initially thought that my charges would be either dropped or deferred so I was using a Public Defender. Since I felt the Public Defender wasn’t doing anything and the prosecutor was coming at me aggressively a friend of mine referred me to Jason Kalafat at Price Benowitz so that he could help with my Simple Assault charge. I was able to contact him immediately and meet with him same day. I felt like he really cared and understood how this would impact my life. So I decided to go with his services and he was ready to go by next day. My public defender wanted me plea and it would have caused me a lot of difficulty but Jason walked into court before it even started and came to me with a deferment agreement which I gladly signed. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I was best investment I could have made.
Would hire Jason in a heartbeat

In looking for various options when searching for an attorney, online, I stumbled upon Price Benowitz, LLP. I contacted the office and got a call back within minutes and spoke with someone who obtained some information and put me in touch with Jason Kalafat. I meet with Jason within a day. When I walked into the appointment I was scared and unsure with what to expect. My view was totally skewed and he helped me understand what to realistically expect. He explained all the potential scenarios and walked me through the possible outcomes, this was the main reason I hired him and felt secure having him defend my case. I thought that he would be pushy but I genuinely felt he left the option up to me and was definitely there to help. He did offer me options and flexibility with payment plans so that the finances would impede on me finding an attorney I was comfortable with. After I hired Jason Kalafat, he also had an associate assist with the MVA process. By explaining every single detail of the process in everyday terms he definitely gained my trust. He was very familiar with the system and everyone within the process. I would definitely hire him again in the future and encourage friends and family to seek his representation.

Jason always had my best interest at heart. You can tell by looking in his eyes that he genuinely cares about his clients. He worked with me on the financing, and after multiple court dates I can honestly say that Jason is an honest, down to earth DUI attorney who puts his heart and soul into his profession.

Great to Work With

First time around I had a Court appointment attorney and the case was dismissed but later reopened. At the time the case was reopened I had a little more money in my pocket and decided to hire a private attorney. I did a search online and actually consulted a few criminal defense attorneys and finally spoke with attorney Jason Kalafat at the law office of Price Benowitz, LLP. After speaking with him I felt very comfortable with information he provided. Standard rates that I had been hearing were consistent but he was very competitive and flexible with what he offered. I decided to hire and I’m very happy he took my thoughts and request into consideration and did not settle. He was very communicative and was prepared along the way, he was always a professional. We were able to read that the government’s plea offer was not what we wanted and we actually managed to get the DUI case dismissed with prejudice meaning that they could not re-file the charges. I definitely praise his work and has been great to work with and would absolutely recommend him.

Four months after visiting some family in DC, I was notified of very serious allegations made against me. I had just moved to a new city and didn’t know who to turn to, but I knew I needed a skilled criminal defense attorney. I started my search online and came across Jason Kalafat’s profile. The reviews were very solid so I did research through other attorneys, who confirmed that his credentials were impeccable. I called for a consultation and after speaking with Jason right away he provided me everything I needed to take the next steps in my case with his representation. I was all alone and scared but Jason calmed the waters, making me feel comfortable knowing what the next steps were. He spoke to me as a friend and explained things in a way I could understand so I always felt secure about my case. Even when I thought things might not go my way at trial, he was there for me and his skills shined through. He nailed his closing argument and the judge ended up ruling in my favor. I was found not guilty on all charges and I couldn’t have done it without Jason. My freedom is worth any amount, but with the service I got from Jason I feel like I got a deal.

The Man that Believed in Me and Fought for my Rights
Posted by: Aaron, a Criminal Defense client, 10 months ago.
June 02, 2012, I was arrested for a felony Possession of a Controlled Substance in D.C. I had no idea that drugs were left in my car, no one would tell me what was going on. It was after I was arrested that I found out of the criminal charges against me. My family was recommended to come see Attorney Jason Kalafat immediately. Attorney Kalafat came to see me personally while I was detained. Ever since, he has taken his time to keep in touch with me and make sure I was doing what I needed to do as far as my conditions of release. Since June he has stuck with me through thick and thin. I never thought a criminal defense attorney would be so kind, generous, optimistic, and believed in my truth. After months of preparing we were finally ready for my trial. It lasted 5 days and each day Attorney Kalafat sat next to me fighting for my innocence and freedom. At the end of it all I was found NOT GUILTY by a jury of my peers and I could not be more than grateful of the work he did for me. He is a blessed individual.
