About Anastasia

Learn Anastasia’s areas of practice.

I am a first generation Greek American born and raised in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area.  Although I work as a criminal defense attorney in Virginia , I am a Maryland girl at heart. I am a proud graduate of the University of Maryland in College Park, as well as Regent University School of Law in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

I am honored to work for two of the very best lawyers in Virginia, and am passionate about my job.  I happily spend hours in the office with my hard-working colleagues, fighting for our clients.  Outside the office, I'm dedicated to my family, friends, and life as a crossfit coach.  I am no stranger to competition, and giving 100% in everything I do.

Mission Statement: Through my personal experience in court, as well as through observation of some of the best attorneys in Northern Virginia, I have learned two keys to success: uncompromised preparation and compassion. These qualities enable me to fight vigorously for those who feel defenseless, while providing a voice of comfort and reason to those who feel threatened by the judicial system. It is my personal goal to leave every client in a better place than where I found them.

Dr.
I hired Ms. Kranias during a difficult time. Her calm, confident, and kind demeanor was exactly what I needed. She works very hard and is very knowledgeable. In fact, it was quickly apparent to me that she knew much more than many of the other lawyers I had discussed my case with. She is a top notch lawyer. I strongly recommend her!

Compassionate and hardworking - highly recommend!
Anastasia was co-counsel representing me on two separate cases- one murder case and one custody case. Anastasia is a hardworking, compassionate attorney who was able to make me feel at ease during very daunting circumstances. Her broad legal knowledge and succinct way of communicating helped me understand how things work and what to expect- I was never blindsided by what came next throughout the process. In the courtroom, she is organized, quick on her feet and makes sound arguments. I am tremendously grateful for her help navigating through a very emotional and frightening process, her realistic and smart guidance, her calming nature, and her zealous representation that led to two successful outcomes for me. I have no reservations recommending her to anyone who needs a lawyer.

An Excellent Lawyer
Ms. Kranias has an amazing attitude toward her clients. She treats them with respect and compassion and is not like any other lawyer you will meet. The client customer service that she provides is beyond reproach and super professional and very personable! She will put you at ease very quickly and make you feel that your situation is not beyond hope. She did that for me and she can do that for you also. She is a winner, hands down, and her track record speaks for itself. She is a truly wonderful lawyer and an expert in her fields!

Scary situation averted thanks to Anastasia
My fiancee and I retained Anastasia for help with a protective order we were seeking. It was a scary situation, to say the least. While I could write about how she helped us get the result we wanted in court (twice), I think it's more important to talk about HOW she did it. I was incredibly stressed out and nervous over the process, the potential outcomes, you name it. Anastasia returned every call, every email, including a few that I sent while she was on vacation that i expected would wait until the next week! Even more than this was how she talked to us- very calm, very confident, and most importantly, very patient! She explained the process really well, kept a focus on what we wanted, and made sure we understood what was happening, any decisions we needed to make, and the strategies of the opposing side so we could work with Anastasia to get the result we wanted. We won our case in court both initially and after appeal. We couldn't be more grateful to Anastasia for her professionalism, her understanding and patience, or her warmth through a pretty intimidating process. We could not have done it alone.
