I don't often write reviews but I am compelled on this occasion by a deep sense of gratitude for J.B., because of the dedication and care she served me with throughout my case and even after. My charges were unique and stemmed from a very serious accident which to my knowledge was unlike anything previously seen in Summit County. Despite her unfamiliarity with my specifically rare charges and despite my unique personal circumstances including debilitating anxiety, she took my case with confidence and delivered great value in the form of dedication and genuine compassion. I chose to work with her after carefully reviewing several other highly rated attorneys in the area and in hindsight I can gladly say that I made the best choice possible. She is well known among the community she serves and has a great rapport with law enforcement and criminal justice professionals within the courts. I believe that her reputation went a long way in defending me successfully. After paying for a service how often can you say that you feel like you underpaid? Well those are my sentiments now and despite offering to increase our pay arrangement, she showed immense integrity by insisting that our prearranged flat fee was the only compensation that she'd accept. In other words, J.B.'s services are worth every penny and then some. I write this review with confidence, that based on my experiences, you can expect great care and service from attorney Katz. It wasn't long ago that I was anxiously examining attorney profiles here on Avvo as you may be now, I faced the daunting task of finding the best possible defense council in Summit County, I found exactly what I was looking for in J.B. Katz.

I was the not so proud recipient of a DUI in Summit County. I immediately consulted a lawyer friend of mine who, without hesitation, recommend J.B. Katz. Although, the legal trauma was no fun, J.B. was knowledgeable and helpful. She set realistic expectations and did not sugarcoat anything. She worked very hard to give me the best deal possible, exercising her outstanding relationship with the District Attorney and the Judge. Additionally, I felt her fees were exceptionally reasonable. If you find yourself on the defensive side of the law, I highly recommend consulting J.B.

If you are reading this review you have found your Lawyer!!! J.B. is nothing short of a Rock Star!!!! I had gotten a DUI 20 years ago and moved out of Colorado before it went to trial and basically I just forgot about it. I had intended to take it to trial because I was not drunk and they had no proof to claim otherwise. I had just got off work and was taking a drunk person off the road. (Should of been thanked, not arrested.) But since the persons vehicle had sat in front of the Virgin Islands Lounge for several hours the cops were just waiting for the driver to get in and put it in gear. The guy who owned the vehicle was to drunk to drive and he worked for my husbands construction company so I said I would drive him to our place for the night. Anyway, after 20 years I find out I have a warrant for my arrest and I can not get my drivers license. I called JB, she answered the phone and within minutes we had an agreement. Within 2 weeks she had the warrant removed and the hold on my license lifted so I could get that taken care of. A week later it was dismissed and now she is working to seal my records. JB is Rock Solid! You can not go wrong with her. She stays in good contact with you and is extremely efficient in her work!! Thanks JB! I love you girl!

I endorse this lawyer. JB is an amazing and intelligent attorney. Her clients always come first and she has exceptional knowledge and expertise in DUI defense. It should come as no surprise that she is considered one of the leaders in DMV and DUI defense.

Very quickly after I began practicing criminal defense in the central mountains of Colorado it became evident that J.B. enjoys a well-deserved reputation for representing her clients with expertise and in a vigorous and ethical manner. She is well liked by prosecutors, judges, and all of her colleagues. She is gracious in sharing her knowledge and experience with her fellow defense attorneys, which evidences her absolute commitment to the defense of the accused. I am grateful to count J.B. as a friend and I would recommend her services without hesitation.
