Posted by a client
This man is magic and he knows every obscure in and out of the legal system. I was a complete wreck after my abusive encounter with law enforcement. He was patient, compassionate, and firm in his counsel. Legally I believed I was trapped, doomed to be branded a deviant for non-violent behavior in which my future job and housing opportunities would be severely limited. Mistakes were made on the prosecutorial side of my case which he caught and was then able to leverage for a better, more reasonable deal with the help of favorable circumstances his guidance helped manifest. In addition to his impeccable legal prowess the man has a fantastically magnetic personality. Charging a flat fee you might expect (or fear) the time provided to you would be limited and possibly rushed. While having a very heavy workload himself he did make time on several occasions to have prolonged conversations regarding my case, helping soothe my frayed nerves.
The man is a legal guardian angel. Hire him.

Hire him if you want a savvy lawyer who is willing to fight to the end for you. Someone who is up front and works hard to get you the best outcome possible. Jon made a horrible process easier to handle. I came to him with a DWI charge and he instantly made me feel like he was ready to fight for me. He is not only concerned with winning your case, he genuinely cares about you. In the beginning he went to court and got me off probation for the time period before my trial. When it looked like all hope was lost he negotiated a plea deal which kept me from serving jail time. He fought for me all the way. Arlington county is one of the toughest counties for DUI/DWI cases and somehow he managed a plea deal. He is great at what he does and I highly recommend him. If you need someone to be by your side from day one and to fight for you he is your guy. He won't make promises he can't keep. The one promise he will make is that he is here for you. My family and I were devastated when I made the mistake of getting a DWI but upon meeting him he eased our fears and the day in court we all were able to breathe a sigh of relief thanks to him. He is a great guy and an even better lawyer. Do yourself a favor and hire him!

Jon successfully negociated a plea deal for me that, not only kept my charge from escalating to a felony, resolved to be a misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia. I was in possession of a small amount of hash oil in VA, a felony, and my finallized plea has me on supervised probation until I complete a 12 week substance abuse course, of my choosing, after which I am unsupervised. Jon is the only lawyer I trust when my future is on the line.

I never write review for anyone before, but I will do it this time for Katz and for those of you who needed help from a "real lawyer". I will be absolutely honest about my case and Katz. I had two previous charges of misdemeanor in 2010 and was place in removal proceeding because I'm not a US citizen (I fought my case back w/ an immigration lawyer and won my case), I cannot have any more Misdemeanor nor Felony. In 2015 I was charge with a Felony (Grand Larceny, I was with someone and they charged me as well), I was recommended to Katz by my immigration lawyer. Katz is not cheap (but he will worth every penny you spend). I came to Katz's office June 2015, HOPELESS about my case. I know for 90% I will be deported if I face any charges even a misdemeanor theft. All the other lawyers I've been to make a lot of promised. I've dealt w/ manny lawyers before and none of them act like Katz. He asked me to do homework (theft class & community service hours). Mean while he obtain the evidence in fighting my case. He CARED, Katz would call me the day before court date to see if I have any questions or if I need anything. After 10 months of fighting, the result came out amazing…TRESPASS…Unbelievable. I was speechless. Katz is above amazing, he kept his promised. I have two words to described Katz "HIRE HIM", because you will get what you paid for. GOOD LUCK

Jon proved to be a superb Attorney and outstanding person who genuinely cares about the best outcome for his clients. He proved this to me after I was cited in Maryland for DUI, DWI, using a hand held telephone and Negligent Driving. After reading an over exaggerated police report, I felt like I was dead meat. While, then I met Jon and he gave me hope that he could back. He did everything he could possibly do to mitigate the serious nature of these charges. If you want a prize fighter who is willing to bob and weave to obtain the best possible results for you, trust me, this is your man. He gave me a course of action to help mitigate the charges and potential judgement orders, learned everything he could about all the Judges went to other specialty Attorneys for work related letters and went to trial when he didn’t get the outcome that I desired. During trial, he demonstrated a mastery level of knowledge of the law and I believe that he even impressed the Judge with his understanding. In the end, I was charged with Negligent Driving, was ordered to attend a MADD Intervention Panel and received six months unsupervised probation before judgement (PBJ) before being possibly charged for DWI. I watched other have much worse outcomes and our (he plays as a team) outcome would have probably been much worse without Jon’s outstand service!

Jon is a great lawyer. I hired him to defend me for the misdemeanor criminal charge. He is very professional and is all about business. If you are looking for a touchy-feely lawyer, he is not your guy. However, if you are looking for a lawyer who will go over and beyond to try to negotiate the best deal for you, than he is the right person to call.
Jon is very responsive and you can expect to get an e-mail from him late at night or at 5 am. It was very easy to schedule meetings with him, being it over the phone or in person. His office and conveniently located just by the Fairfax county court and he offers his clients to park at his office private parking lot on the date of the court.
Jon is not the cheapest lawyer in the area, but I feel his representation was worth every cent of it. I would highly recommend Jon to anyone seeking top-notch criminal defense in the Fairfax county.

So, previously I mentioned that there is a special class for Jon. Neither samurai nor ronnin, but both! He is pragmatic, realistic but most importantly straight with you and where you stand.
I am here just to let you know that my dismissed misdemeanor that he managed to get is now expunged!!!
I said it before and I am repeating it again:
I did the research for you, just hire him! If he cannot do it I really don't think anyone can!

I hired mr.katz not knowing anything about my case, I was scared I was going to be charged with a felony conviction but he worked with me and got my case dismissed. And gave me some money back after my case. An excellent attorney I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.

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.
