They show effort even when giving you a free consultation, THAT says A LOT. If I could rewind, I would of hired this attorney for my case. Professional, Respectful and QUICK responses. To win a case you need a GREAT attorney who knows what their doing, and cares..

Jason Kreiss is the most outstanding attorney I know. I've spoken with several attorneys over the years for several different reasons, and the only attorney who I can trust is Jason Kreiss. Some attorney's don't have the decency to care about their clients well being, and at any moment of any day, I always have comfort in knowing I have the best legal team in Jason.
In times of stress and anguish, Jason always helps his clients with the dignity they deserve. With Jason's years of experience, expertise and his network of colleagues, I have complete confidence in his abilities.
The choice is simple for me, I choose Jason Kreiss for all of my legal advice and counsel.

My lawyer Jason Kreiss handled my White Collar case with the utmost professionalism, his demeanor was straight forward, honest,empathetic, but most importantly assertive in getting his argument across. Mr. Kreiss guided me throughout the most difficult time of my life by being available, and returning calls immediately.He explained everything, and reviewed all evidence with me.From hearings up until the conclusion of my case Jason has advised me with great recommendations. His staff goes above and beyond, I understand why Jason is the best in the businss after experiencing this how I did and listening and seeing others waste good money on mediocre lawyers. If you want clarity in a dark and confusing time, pick Jason to lead you through it. I would recommend Jason to anyone that would need to hire a criminal attorney for their defense,he treats you like a valued client not dollar signs.

Jason Kreiss is a gift. He did the impossible for us by miraculously getting a felony reduced to a misdemeanor in a case where that is just not done. He said we were extremely lucky to receive that decision, but we say our luck was in having him as our lawyer. He presents himself modestly, not underestimating each individual case, taking everything seriously, whether it is a small or large case.
He demonstrated extreme skill and knowledge throughout the process in the way he handled everything, inspiring great confidence. A very principled man, he fights for justice for his client because he really cares. From the outset, he showed tremendous compassion, which is what drives him to be determined and dedicated. He does not give up. He has conviction and tenacity and because he thinks out of the box and is extremely resourceful, he is able to get the result of what would seem to be impossible. As a person and as a lawyer Jason Kreiss has tremendous integrity. From the first day I spoke with him I knew he was going to fight for us, and do the job right.
Not only does he understand the law, but he understands the human being. He understands the circumstances of each individual case thoroughly, which enables him able to represent his client in the best possible manner for the best possible outcome.

On December 16, 2010 Jason Kreiss performed a miracle in a high-profile RICO conspiracy Internet gambling case (USA v. Betonsports PLC et al) and helped me get my life back. And when I thought it couldn't get any better I became a free man officially today...
ORDER: IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the motion for early termination of probation [Doc. # 1297] is granted. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the defendant Norman Steinberg is discharged from probation and the proceedings in this case are terminated as to him. ORDER granting  Motion for Early Termination of Probation/Supervised Release (7) Signed by District Judge Carol E. Jackson on 7/31/2012. (KMS)

The knowledge and capability that Jason and his staff brought to the table is amazing . If I had chosen another attorney I dont know that I would be here posting this review. I can tell you without much detail that my outcome could have been very different if he was not by my side. His staff has always been responsive and timely with information. I can without hesitation and will refer anyone in need of help to him. When first we met and discussed my case I was not promised and have never been promised an outcome that was unreasonable. Jason is and remains a straight shooter and will let you know the real deal. I think that speaks for itself.

Jason is a fighter, you want him on your side. Hiring him was the best decision I have ever made. He gave 150% to my case and brought me home, when nobody thought that could or would happen.. He thinks "outside the box", he's strategic, methodical, and honest. He's your man.

Jason Kreiss took on my case for VOP. I thought that noone could help me in this matter because I had been in violation for ten years. I was totally impressed with him as a person, but even more as a defense attorney.. I have never seen a lawyer work so vigorously on a case as Jason did. I hope for my best being that I will not need to use him anymore, but if I do Jason would be the first and only lawyer I would consider. I can't thank him enough for the job he did for me and would highly recommend him to anyone out there who needs the very best attorney I have come across in a courtroom!!!!

Jason Kreiss is the only lawyer I would recommend after my experience with him and his professional staff. His approach to my case resulted in a decision that I thought was not at all possible. In court I knew the opposing attorney was out matched. He never promised me anything, but over performed and gave me the best result I could hope for. Thank you Jason for your understanding, your knowledge, and most of all your results!!

As a prosecutor I had the pleasure of meeting Jason when he was opposing counsel. My experience with him was one of the most enjoyable due to his knowledge, expertise, advocacy for his client, and undying commitment to do the best and be the best. Jason is respectful, always remaining professional and never losing site of the fact that his job is not as easy as it looks. It's been my experience not only as opposing counsel, but as a client myself. Jason's integrity and trustworthiness is the reason why I chose him to represent not only myself, but a family member as well. For myself, the case was resolved in an excellent manner with a favorable result. Jason procured the most favorable resolution for my family member, the State threw out the case. Needless to say, I endorse this lawyer..

I hired Jason Kreiss to handle my Felony Drug case in 2003 and it wound up being the best decision that I have ever made! It was a very serious and complicated case that took 2 years to come to an end that I never thought possible! Throughout those 2 years Jason was there each and every time I needed to speak to him by phone or in his office. If I called and had to leave a message with his receptionist I would receive a call back from Jason within minutes! Each and every time we spoke by phone or in his office he gave me his undivided attention and made me feel more like his friend than his client.
Since then my cousin's teenage son got himself into some trouble and my cousin asked me if I knew of a good attorney and I gave him Jason's name and number. He hired Jason and is as grateful he did as I am and thanks me still everytime he see's me!
There have been times since my case has been long over with that I needed an opinion or some direction on certain issues that I was dealing with and called Jason and he was always there to give me his advise and offer his help!
If you need an attorney do yourself a favor and take the word of someone you have never met that hiring Jason is your absolute best choice! Nobody, will dedicate more time and effort in getting you your best results possible!

I was one of the lead defendants in the US v. Betonsports plc Internet Gambling case out of the E.D. of Mo. I had given up all hope and the government considered me to be a fugitive in CR where I had resided for 13 years and where I was also a citizen. Jason formulated a strategy to convince the government to negotiate a plea agreement in good faith by instituting civil litigation against the United States for bringing a malicious prosecution against me. After 16 months and having to make 3 trips out to St. Louis, Jason was able to negotiate my surrender on his home turf in Ft. Lauderdale, granted OR Bond in advance, and my swift removal to St. Louis all in the same day. I surrendered in Florida on Monday and was sentenced by the judge in St. Louis on Thursday. On Friday morning I was on an plane back to CR sentenced to 3 years of unsupervised probation and a $10,000 fine which I have 6 months to pay. This international case, from 2006, charged me with evasion of gambling excise taxes, RICO, Wire Fraud, Mail Fraud, obstruction of IRS laws, and forfeiture for 4.5 billion dollars. The lead defendant in the case, Gary Kaplan, was sentenced to 51 months in jail and personally had to forfeit more than 43 million dollars. His team of attorneys was the best that money could buy. This is an example of big doesn't necessarily mean better. Jason made himself available to me 24/7/365 via email or phone. I have never seen an attorney more diligent than him, and a lawyer who was so devoted to researching a case thoroughly. The judge in the case, Carole E. Jackson is considered to be a very strict judge. Jason and his colleague, Mike Gottlieb, established a very professional working relationship with both the prosecutors as well as the judge. Kreiss and Gottlieb clearly out-strategized the government. Jason was always one step ahead of the government, and was always prepared. If you want an attorney that will dedicate himself to ultimately getting you a resolution to your legal problem that you can live with look no further than Jason Kreiss. It took me more than 3 years to find him, and it was by shear luck that I did.
