Jon is best Attorney in Washington DC metro area and one of the best in a USA.
I also was reading reviews like you probably do now, when I did something stupid and was charged with 2 felonies theft counts.
I am a senior citizen , not a criminal and have a Masters Degree and very long successful career lasting up to my retirement.
But I made a mistake for which I could spend long time in prison. For me any long prison term would be a death sent ens considering my age and health problems. Under this circumstances I met with Jon and never was sorry that I did.
Jon was very professional and did not treat me as a criminal. He promised to me and my wife to fight for me and he did.
My case took a lot of his time,several court appearances. researches and hard work and effort which at the end brought the results I could only hope for. One felony count was dismissed completely and the second was reduced to misdemeanor without actual jail time and only small fine and court cost. I am very happy with a result. Jon saved my life and life of my family.
One conversation with Mr. Katz and you will realize that selecting him to represent you is the best decision that you can make. His passion for his profession is what I enjoy the most. Thank you again Sir.
Just bloody hire him! Stop your research as I have done it for you. Not only did I do research, but experienced it first hand.
When I spoke with him he was realistic. Did not promise anything other then he will fight for me till the very end. He did, and did it with dismissal of my m.d. charge. BTW, my case resulting in dismissal was not only improbable but possibility of it happening was in .001% range. Yet he figured it out.
Do not give up! Appeal if you lost the first round, and stick with Jon! Remember, as Jon says, you have two bits of the apple!
Japanese proverb says:
Strategy without plan is a daydream.
Plan without strategy is a nightmare.
Jon comes up with both strategy and plan how to execute it. Simply unbelievable!
I think there has to be a third class besides Samurai and Ronin. I would like to call it JON: One that can do what neither Samurai nor Ronin can.
Just hire him!
I had the unfortunate mishap of getting (wrongly) charged with DUI and refusal in Arlington County. I've never been in this kind of trouble - so after all the reviews I read on Avvo, I gave Jon a shot. He may cost more than other lawyers, but you can't mess around with Johnny Law, and it turns out he was worth it! Jon will prepare you and prepare himself to take on the case as best as possible. In my case because of this preparation, the charge was amended to reckless and the refusal thrown out. Don't let the judicial system trample you - Jon will be your defense warrior.
I decided to hire Jon Katz about a year ago for being arrested with a DUI of 0.08 in Arlington county. Although he may be expensive you are getting your money's worth with Jon Katz aka el gato. He will take the time to make sure he gives you the best result possible and will do everything he can to help. He is very well connected in the judicial system also. I ended up with only a reckless driving and a suspended license for six months. We went to trial with a horrible judge but after we got the result we wanted by negotiating with the prosecutor. I would highly recommend Jon Katz for any case needed.
Where do I begin, I was facing a dwi 2nd within 5-10 years along with a refusal. I thought my life was over, I for sure that I would lose my license for 3 years, face a lengthy jail sentence and have to pay a hefty fine.
Jon worked his magic and got me exactly what I wanted. No jail, minimal fine and my license albeit restricted remained intact. Jon is not your typical lawyer he really genuinely cares about his clients, he is very personable, a bit quirky, intelligent and has a special way with people.
I fully endorse Jon and would recommend him to anyone in need of the services he specializes in. I hope to never need Jon again but if I do he is the only one I will call.
Thanks Jon!!! I am really appreciative of everything
I got pulled by Dulles airport goon from the Republic of Georgia who decided to end my life for speeding, you know Soviet style. He slapped me with Reckless and a DUI and promised that I won't see light of day. We searched and searched for a lawyer and settled on Jon Katz. Well,suffice it to say that Jon, the magician, got me out of it with minimal damage and no DUI. His charm, ability to organize, knowledge of the law were unparalleled. Every lawyer will promise you the world but Jon promised nothing and only delivered. That ordeal was horrowing, but Jon got me out of it at the Prelim hearing so my life can go back to normal fairly quickly. Don't drink and drive folks, they will screw you royally.

Mr. Katz is definitely the best one you can find for your DUI case. I first got a DWI charge in Virginia, and I was really freaked out. However, Jon helped out and offered lots of solutions not only as a professional expert but also a supportive friend! In the end, my dwi charge in Virginia became reckless driving. This result truly saves my career path! FYI: I am from Asia, and Mr. Katz totally understands and respects my culture. He is the one that you can BELIEVE!

This was my first time facing a charge, a reckless driving charge, which is jailable in Virginia.I was upset and nervous as I clearly had no idea that speeding would put someone into jail. As a student, I did not have any clue about how to fight against it but I did know I could not afford any jail time. However, advised by Jon, following his specific instructions on preparation and doing the "homework" he assigned, I was able to get myself out of the gloomy situation. More importantly, together working with Jon personally in a team, I felt more powerful. At the end,I was happy about the result Jon got for me due to his very impressive skills and highly-concentrated working style on the court date. Nevertheless, I am even happier that now I have an intelligent friend like Jon. Again, thanks Jon! Xiexie!

My first impression of Mr Katz in our initial consultation was that he was an ass but someone you want on your side. I thought his fee was a bit extravagant but he promptly refunded most of it when my case got dismissed before trial. Our meeting was a bit contentious but I can tell this guy is a bulldog. Jon is a honest upstanding guy who doesn't sugarcoat. He put in writing that he will dedicate himself fully to your case if you choose to hire him. Honestly he is a bit of a jerk but I would hire him again in a heartbeat.
