As I understand it, that was the maximum sentence for culpable homicide. So, it really depends whether you believe that he shot her accidentally.

Mr. Kalafat is a brilliant attorney. He is attentive to the needs of each client and works diligently to resolve their concerns. He has an amazing command of the intricacies of the legal system, especially the special requirements of the Superior Court in the District of Columbia. Mr. Kalafat gives his clients a certain confidence in his ability to advocate for them while providing sound legal advice. He possesses a wealth of experience and knowledge that he uses to assist his clients in even the most complex cases. Having the opportunity to work with, observe and learn from Mr. Kalafat have been a rich and amazing experience.

I have known Jason personally and professionally for 15 years and would strongly recommend Jason to a client in need of advice regarding criminal matters. I have had in-depth discussions with Jason about his practice, and he brings both passion and significant expertise to his clients. He represents the cutting edge of criminal defense lawyers.

As a charging prosecutor, my day-to-day interactions with defense attorneys is limited. That said, I do have a number of interactions under my belt with Mr. Kalafat, and think extremely high of him in every possible way. His defense expertise is pervasive and undeniable, and only enhanced by his professional polish and style. His legal knowledge is rarely matched, and he continues to surprise me by securing wins in cases most would consider state cases. I'll never forget the theft-related case he secured an acquittal in that involved extremely strong evidence supporting a conviction: the victim went to HS with that suspect, the victim provided not only his name to responding police, but also the picture of him contained in their collective high school's yearbook, his client was caught on video, and it ultimately proceeded to trial in absentia when his client failed to show. This is an excellent example of Mr. Kalafat's impressive trial skills. Amazingly, his personality remains warm and congenial throughout most attorney interactions, and he never fails to command a room with his masterful social skills. I cannot speak highly enough of Mr. Kalafat, and recommend him to anyone unfortunate enough to find themselves needing his services. He is undeniably the attorney you want on your side - especially if you're interested in going straight for the jugular - and he's worth whatever his rates are to secure just that!

If I were ever accused of a crime, Jason would be the first person I called. He is intelligent and diligent. He knows what he is doing and he doesn't play games. You can rest assured that if Jason is on your case, you are getting first rate representation, and will receive the best possible outcome available.

Mr. Kalafat is a tenacious advocate for his clients, a formidable opponent for prosecutors. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and works tirelessly for his clients. At the same time, he has earned the respect of fellow attorneys and of judges for his professional and respectful conduct. I've known Mr. Kalafat for over a decade, both opposing him in court when I was a prosecutor, and consulting him on issues when I was a defense attorney. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of representation.

Jason was a huge help in difficult circumstances. He listened well to really understand the case, and worked well with the DA in initial stages and follow-on steps of the case to get a great outcome.
