About Joel

Learn Joel’s areas of practice.

At the law office of Joel W. Anders, we have been representing individuals in Washington, D.C. and the surrounding Maryland communities for over three decades. Placing high value on integrity, quality and customer service, we strive to truly understand our clients' concerns and reach positive outcomes that help them achieve their goals. We concentrate our practice on handling legal issues in several areas, including family law, criminal defense, probate and others. SEASONED LITIGATOR ON YOUR SIDE Our firm's founding attorney, Joel W. Anders, has 39 years of experience as a trial lawyer. During this time, he has developed a detailed understanding of how the legal system operates, which enables him to effectively and efficiently guide cases through the legal process. Attorney Anders has the ability to quickly determine when a client can best be served by settlement negotiation, a generally more conservative and cost-effective method of dispute resolution. However, when a case demands a courtroom trial, such as a criminal case, our lawyer is prepared to draw on his extensive litigation experience to fight on behalf of our clients. Either way, our firm believes aggressive advocacy is key to giving clients the opportunity to make critical decisions on their own terms.

Great experience for prenup review
I retained Mr. Anders to review a prenup agreement between my fiance and I. He was very knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process. Gave me thoughtful and pertinent advice in a way that I could understand and relate to. Would definitely recommend!
