Client Reviews

When I was first charged with Assaulting a Police Officer, I knew this was a serious offense. Taking into account my priors, I didn’t feel comfortable with a public defender with my case. I had heard of David Benowitz and I saw him walking out of court, so I spoke with him and he directed me to his office across the street and told me to ask for Jason. From the break I felt confident and comfortable with Jason’s ability before I even signed. He then gave me a payment plan and it was reasonable so I was glad to have found an attorney and I couldn’t have been surer we were going to win. Today we had court and Jason made sure to present all the evidence he had gathered to the government and today I’m glad to say that my charges for assaulting a Police officer were dismissed. I have already been recommending him too many people because I feel he is a great attorney.

I am very pleased and impressed with Mr. Kalafat’s handling of my case. Given the circumstances and my prior record I expected a more punitive sentence. Jason was able to maintain the consequences to an absolute minimum. His experience and knowledge of the law, the process, and the players involved worked in my favor and I am quite happy with the results.

I obtained representation because I knew it was necessary for my case. However, I was skeptical about the profession in general and expected a degree of apathy mixed with professionalism. This was not the case with Jason. He was personable and communicative throughout the whole process, and remarkably well-prepared for trial. He was ready to fight tooth and nail to have me exonerated, and that is exactly what happened.

I retained Jason Kalafat for weapons possession and assault charges. Jason punched a myriad of holes in the case against me, rendering it almost impossible to obtain a conviction. When trial day came, the case was immediately dismissed.

Worried about losing my Driver’s License and having a DUI affecting my job and my ability to be available for my family I set out on looking for an attorney. My wife, who is an attorney, found the offices of Price Benowitz, LLP and based on her research she felt that they were the best office to handle my case. So I called and was given some preliminary information from the office and was scheduled to meet with Attorney Jason Kalafat. When I met with Jason I was already comfortable and we had a very straight forward meeting. I was given clear expectations so that I felt comfortable with the decision I was making. I was offered a payment plan which was I was able to do, based on the reputation of the office, I felt it was reasonable. I was provided contact information to be able to remain in contact which allowed for adequate communication. I went to court today and was very happy knowing that I all I had to say was thank you to the Judge for dismissing the case. I am very confident that I made the right decision by choosing Jason Kalafat as my attorney and I can’t imagine things going better.

Four months after visiting some family in DC, I was notified of very serious allegations made against me. I had just moved to a new city and didn’t know who to turn to, but I knew I needed a skilled criminal defense attorney. I started my search online and came across Jason Kalafat’s profile. The reviews were very solid so I did research through other attorneys, who confirmed that his credentials were impeccable. I called for a consultation and after speaking with Jason right away he provided me everything I needed to take the next steps in my case with his representation. I was all alone and scared but Jason calmed the waters, making me feel comfortable knowing what the next steps were. He spoke to me as a friend and explained things in a way I could understand so I always felt secure about my case. Even when I thought things might not go my way at trial, he was there for me and his skills shined through. He nailed his closing argument and the judge ended up ruling in my favor. I was found not guilty on all charges and I couldn’t have done it without Jason. My freedom is worth any amount, but with the service I got from Jason I feel like I got a deal.
