Criminal Defense

Being charged with a crime can be an overwhelming experience. Our firm specializes in criminal law, and has the experience needed to win your case.

Federal Crimes

Allegations of federal crimes are very serious and should be treated as such. The FBI, DEA or CIA may be involved with investigating the incident.


Being charged with a DUI or DWI can be very scary, and also very serious. We will fight at all costs to have your case dismissed, reduced, or won at trial.

Sex Crimes

Being charged with a sexual crime requires an attorney who will deal with their client with compassion and without judgment.

Arlington Virginia Criminal Defense Attorneys

At The Law Offices of Patrick N. Anderson and Associates, our sole focus is criminal defense. We are one of the most experienced criminal defense law firms in Northern Virginia.  For 34 years, our lawyers have worked exclusively defending clients accused of felony, misdemeanor and summary offenses.

We are compassionate and understanding of our clients issues, and make it a personal goal to win each case that we undertake. Our results speak for themselves (see testimonials below).

A moment of bad judgement, and now you are facing criminal charges. Being charged with crimes such as assault, drug possession, burglary, DUI/DWI, fraud, sex crimes, federal crimes or any other can be a difficult experience with life altering consequences. Time is of the essence.  Finding the right attorney to represent you is critical to avoid a possible negative outcome.  Why trust your life to an inexperienced law firm, or a law firm that may practice in other areas of law? Please don’t take that chance because too much is at risk.  At The Law Offices of Patrick Anderson, criminal law is all we do.  Our experienced and compassionate lawyers can immediately begin representing you and work on your behalf.  You can be assured that you are in good hands, and that your case will be handled with the highest level of urgency.

The accused have many questions. How can these charges impact my freedom?  Do I face jail time?  Will I have to go to court? How much is a potential fine? How could this impact my life going forward? Through a free consultation, our attorneys will address these questions and more.  During this consultation, we will learn the facts of your case, explain how we can help, and provide a clear understanding of the possible outcomes.  Once we begin legal representation, our team of criminal lawyers will fight to have your charges dismissed or reduced, or to achieve the best outcome possible for your particular charges.

Serving all of Northern Virginia, we have worked extensively in all encompassing jurisdictions and are familiar with the local prosecutors and judges. Our opposition knows that when we represent someone, we put forth a 100% commitment, and we are proud of that reputation.
