Excellent Law Firm
I was able to work with Sarah, and she is an amazing paralegal. The entire staff were pleasant to work with , but Sarah was exceptional. We did not feel like just another client , because we could tell she sincerely cared about our circumstance-and she persevered until we received the results that we deserved. I would recommend this Law firm to friends , family etc. , honestly anyone who is in need of their services. I’m glad I chose them for my son’s case.

Never knew an honest attorney existed until NOW!!
I was referred to Mr. Katz's office after I was rear ended on Rte 1 in Woodbridge, VA. I was really scared about hiring an attorney because of the typical stereotypes. I was afraid they would use my misfortune to compensate their pockets. This is not the case at all with this law firm. Not only were they genuinely kind and patient, everyone I spoke with in that office made me feel important and fought on my behalf. I was awarded a substantial settlement and in the end, Mr Katz was able to have some of my medical bills reduced in order to put more money in my pocket. Not only did he have my medical bills reduced, this office reduced THEIR FEE AS WELL!!!!!!! I was almost speechless when he told me they reduced their fee. I now have faith in attorneys -- haha -- Well at least Mr. Katz and his colleagues I have faith in. I am truly amazed and forever grateful for what they have done for me and my family. If any one is in a predicament like mine, I strongly recommend you call this law firm. It is definitely worth the wait and they truly take care of their clients and go above and beyond for what is right for you. In this day and age it is hard to find good people in this world that would do this for another person. Thank you so much.

great consult
I consulted with Justin after I had an accident a few weeks ago in the terrible snow storm. He helped guide me through the insurance issue and he was really helpful, kind and conscientious. I'm so glad I called him because he helped put my mind at ease during this difficult time.

After being in a horrible car accident (while pregnant)...
After being in a horrible car accident (while pregnant), I did not want to have any additional stress so I decided to seek counsel. I told them I wanted it to be as easy on me as possible and that I did not want to go through the stress of a trial. Despite the other driver’s insurance company trying to create every obstacle, Justin Katz managed to get me a sizeable and fair settlement. Most importantly, I didn’t have to lift a finger other than to sign a few papers. Overall, I was quite pleased.

an excellent, trustworthy attorney!
Justin knew exactly what he was doing; even though it was a difficult case to defend, he was able to get all the information he needed to win the case. He was very knowledgeable and prepared, was prompt in responding to all my emails and calls, and I had no problem preparing for the court date. I highly recommend him.
