How does one pose a review without coming across the fanboy? I decided it is impossible, but I waited two months to pose this review to let the emotions settle. Earlier this year I found myself facing a situation I had no experience handling; I was angry, lost, angry, clueless where to turn, and flipping angry. I was charged with assault/battery. I turned to the web and found a respected lawyer, but when I went to discuss my case I ended up with someone who did not engender confidence. I left horrified by his disposition and projection of the case. I was going to jail. I was ready to hire that lawyer impatiently ready to move forward, but something prodded me to research more. I found Mr. Jon Katz. Jon and I bumped heads initially as I prefer email and though he uses it the output is limited, he would not tell me his fee via email, but I liked what I read about him and decided to risk it and sacrifice more time for him to assess my situation. I will never forget my first sight of the man. The impression invigorated; his countenance experienced, the equanimity settled me before a word was said about the case. We went over the case and I was lifted far from the depths of hell I had lived the previous 48hours after the first lawyer. We discussed the case and I learned to love the man for his boundless energy for his profession; he loves trying to help us. We discussed everything he needed and I was tasked with homework. The last thing I expected and certainly nothing like it from the other lawyer. I am not sure Jon knows, but it did wonders for me when he said I have homework. I have no idea how he addresses other cases, but I had homework. It snapped me out of my funk. I had things to do, to focus on, to strengthen my case as I was in trouble but not as was presented by the lying sob who called the police. Jon made time for me when needed, in-person and especially by phone, from the beginning to the end. There is nothing like he gets your money and fades with this guy. Throughout he is full of energy, and encouraging. He is busy, but makes time. He is like a machine such is his commitment to us. You may be like I was suffocating in a puddle of my own stupidity for allowing myself to fail as I did. You may not realize it now, but depression is a likely enemy waiting for you. I think he knows this as he does a great job keeping the roots in the ground and he does so honestly. It was a struggle, but he helped me cope. I must say after reading and hearing for most of my life about unscrupulous underhanded defense lawyers, this man is a genuine and honest soul. At no point did he try to whip up something dishonest or encourage or lead me to fabricate a path he could use to strengthen my case. In my opinion, he does not need that as the power of his expertise and personality does wonders just walking in the court room. I am sure he does not win every case as some are not winnable--mine was not, but he got my charge lessened and saved me from jail. He performed a miracle for me, and it is clear from the other reviewers I am not alone. On a personal note about the man, I have never met such a lively interesting mind as Jon Katz. There is a reason why he is regularly on major media outlets providing his respected opinion. This is a great man, and if you are still wondering if you should research further for the person to help you through the legal mess you are in, then I wish you well. I am convinced had I went with the first lawyer, I would be in jail right now. I wish you well with your choice as it could be the biggest of your life. This man is a fighter and fighting for us. NOTE: I plan to pose this sentiment on several sites in my support of Jon and to help others get closer to making a choice. I mention this as it may seem suspicious to some that the same post or very similar is on other sites. I do not like writing and have no intention of creating new reviews for every site.
