  • Jonathan L Katz

    Carl has selflessly shared his expertise and insights on criminal defense with me since I started practicing criminal defense in 1991. He has been particularly helpful in sharing his thoughts on the cases I have defended in his Harford County home base. I have and will continue to refer those in need of a lawyer to Carl when I have a scheduling conflict or co-defendant conflict.
