Fantastic Lawyer and knows how to coordinate a complex situation
Jason helped a young man who had a minor run in with the law. He and a few friends trespassed on public property and ran away from the police. He guided the young man through an apology to the stewards of the property and a genuine effort to make amends by doing something nice to the government employees who were inconvenienced. He then worked with the prosecuting authorities to convince them that the youth all had no records, had not offended again and were gainfully engaged in advanced studies as well as in public service role. The prosecutor dropped the case even though it would have been an open and shut misdemeanor conviction. He did this by coordinating with the lawyers hired by the other youth and by working with the police department and prosecutor. Worth every dollar to avoid a criminal record for a youthful indiscretion at 18.

Look no further than Jason Lantz
I would highly recommend AttorneyJason Lantz. I was recently arrested and accused of driving under the influence. Scared and unsure of my rights, I reached out to a local attorney my family had trusted for years, Chris Matson. Chris referred me to a colleague ,Jason Làntz, with the law firm Geoffrey Burg. His knowledge, professionalism, confidence, and dedication was second to none! The outcome of my case was a not guilty verdict. Jason Lantz was undoubtedly the right choice. I would not hesitate to trust that your rights will be upheld with his representation. He was awesome!

Jason is a great lawyer
We were in a nightmare for most 4 months because of the accident DV charge. We were so stressed when a different lawyer had over charged us and almost took a peal deal just to get it done with. But we are so glad we found Jason Lantz at the last minute. To us he was sent by God as he was able to provide great help and give us confidence through this most difficult time during our lives. He was not only a sharp lawyer that knows very well about the legal systems but also a kind person who is willing to listen to our side of the story and fight for us until the end. With his support and help our case was DISMISSED! His knowledge, professionalism, confidence and kindness make him the best lawyer. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to friends and families. Many thanks Jason!

Complex prior DUI Jury Trial w/HTO on the line!
Jason's the attorney you need for the best possible outcome of your DUI, especially when facing severe consequences from prior issues. His experience with legal nuances that will help your case, and relationships with specialists in the legal community, is like having an entire corporate legal team at your defense. With multiple courts, charges, and timelines involved, I had no place for anything but the most competent representation available. When previous offenses and probation violations are involved, the severe penalties and mandatory minimum sentencing would ruin most people's lives in many ways, some of which you probably never considered or thought you could be facing. Jason walked me through the entire ordeal with explanation and reasoning to help ease the process and my nerves, then won at trial!

Extremely Pleased
First Jason and his partners were prompt in returning my initial call. After having discussed my case in consultation I decided to hire Mr. Lantz. I could not have been more pleased with the outcome. I felt informed about my options and when my case came before the judge Jason Lantz was able to obtain my desired outcome. Case Dismissed! I am superbly satisfied with this outcome. Thank you so much Jason!

Highly recommend Jason!
I was really nervous when I got the criminal charge. And Jason gave me a lot of confidence on the first call. During the process, he is really strategic and patient, and the result is beyond my expectation- the charge is dismissed and the fines are very small. Thank you for all the work you have done!

Animal Control felony charges dismissal
I hired Jason Lantz to represent me in getting false felony charges brought by King County Animal Control and the State of Washington for animal abuse and gun purchases. Jason was thorough, with vital interviews and investigations, and also cost efficient throughout a long process to successfully reach our goals of clearing my name and keeping me and my animals together. I will recommend to all people as a lawyer you want to hire, not just horse and animal owners.

Great at what he does, highly recommended.
Jason was very professional and it was clear he took my case seriously, doing everything he could all the way up to trial where I was found not guilty. He was also great in responding to questions, interviewing witnesses, and working with an investigator to get the right outcome. Can't thank Jason enough, and I definitely recommend hiring him.

Best Around
Hired Jason for a misdemeanor charge and couldn't be happier with his work. He always kept me informed of everything, worked with me on every aspect of my case, and was very persistent with opposing counsel. I was very concerned with the charge and nervous for what was ahead, he walked me through every step and made me feel very comfortable. His staff and fellow partner in the firm jumped to assist whenever they were needed. My case was dismissed and I'm so very thankful I had Jason in my corner.

Knowledgeable, Accessible, and Effective
Jason was willing to take on a case that was in no way "easy". He clearly explained the situation, potential outcomes, and plan of action. He'll advise you what to do before and after the trial to avoid unknowingly creating bigger problems for yourself. It felt like every time we spoke there was good news. Any question you have will be answered in a timely manner, and you can trust that he knows what he's talking about. If you happen to find yourself in need of defense for a legal situation that falls within his specializations, I would highly recommend reaching out to Jason Lantz!

Effective, Fair, & Trustworthy - Hire Him
If you need a stand up lawyer that's going to be honest, thorough, and effective... Jason is the one to hire. I experienced an extremely unfortunate misunderstanding that led to a criminal investigation against me (a working professional and student with zero legal history - exemplifying that legal issues can happen to anyone!) and I called around to a plethora of Lawyers and Jason stood out. We discussed my situation, he strategically broke down the various scenarios that could play out, and what my options were and the best course of action with each. He really put in the time, resulting in the criminal investigation getting dropped in less than 2 weeks... Overall, do your due diligence, everyone should, but if you really want to resolve your legal issue and need a powerhouse lawyer that's knowledgeable and will approach your case with the right energy, Jason is the one you're looking for! Thanks again Jason.

Trustworthy and Effective
Jason recently gained my trust as an attorney helping out with a legal situation where I was accused of reckless endangerment. Jason is always very professional, organized and kept me in the know, willing to chat any time I had questions. He is an advocate for me in the courtroom, minimizes my exposure to the system and here helped me walk away from an unfortunate misunderstanding that could have unjustly cost me big time. Would definitely go straight to Jason again for help. Thank you, Jason!

Exceptional Defense Attorney
Like most people, I never thought I would find myself in a scenario where I would need to retain legal representation, and for a DV allegation at that. I spent several hours researching and interviewing attorneys. After my first conversation with Jason, I knew I would likely hire him. He was genuine and attentive. He walked me through the entire process and the potential outcomes. At the end of our call, I felt confident instead of anxious. Jason immediately began working on my case once I hired him. Jason is approachable, he communicates effectively and is easy to get in touch with. He is proactive and was always prepared and on time for every hearing. The prosecutor in my case did not seem to want to budge and we were prepared to go to trial. Jason's assiduity and intransigence ultimately got my case dismissed. Jason is an exceptional attorney, I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking representation.

Jason’s review
Jason has represented me multiple times in DUI cases. We seem to always get the best possible outcomes given the circumstances I have been in. Mr Lantz responds quickly to calls and/or emails. He is knowledgeable and genuine. I have always been filled in with any and all info that I needed to know from him. Hopefully I will not need to hire him again but I have and would recommend him as a great DUI defense lawyer.

Best Attorney I have ever dealt with
As my case was very lengthy because of the pandemic & the details of my history he was able to what I thought would not be able to be done from the court side & the DOL sides of the case. He kept me in the loop & guided me through what should be done so that when it came time for my case I would already be prepared & it could also help me in the long run. I am so grateful of his services & would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a great attorney.

Exceptional Criminal Defense
After finding myself in trouble with the law for the the first time, I consulted several defense lawyers and Jason by far stood out amongst the pack. He not only listened attentively and without judgement, but laid out all the possible outcomes for my case and provided answers and remedies to issues of privacy and employment that my situation had raised. He worked swiftly to get out in front of the courts with due diligence and negotiations and maintained fantastic communication with me through the whole process. In the end, we were able to reach the best possible resolution for my case. I am 100% confident that I made the correct choice hiring Jason and his team. Do not hesitate to give this man a call!
