    35 years


As lawyers, we stand in a unique position of trust with not only our clients, but the justice system as a whole.  I take these obligations seriously and feel privileged to serve our clients to the best of my abilities.     

When I first meet with clients, my primary focus is to simply listen to everything they have to say.   By understanding my clients' lives, challenges and aspirations, I can better recommend options, work with clients to implement sensible solutions, and leave each client with the sense they had an advocate who truly cared about them. Many of our clients report feeling relieved after initial consultations largely because they were able to talk to a professional who can listen intensively without interruption.

Extensive courtroom experience, detailed fact investigation, and a command of the law are often the difference between winning and losing at trial.  But the best lawyers know that every case need not end up before a jury.  Many cases can and should settle, and these settlements require a different, but no less important, skill set.   A personal injury lawyer must know his client's capacity for risk and advise that client accordingly.  Where a prolonged jury trial may be the best recommendation for one client, arbitration or mediation may be the better option for another client. Each case, like each client, is different.  

For over 34 years, I have been advocating for individuals to get them full and fair compensation for the medical costs, pain and suffering, permenent injuries and disfigurement, and life disruption they have been forced to endure through no fault of their own.  Whether representing pedestrians struck by reckless motorists, motorcyclists suffering from catastrophic injuries caused by the carelessness of drivers, or families who have lost loved ones by negligent truck drivers, I take on each client as if I were representing a member of my family, confident that through hard work, vigilence, and a dedication to excellence, Charnoff Simpson will continue to achieve great results for deserving clients.

A lawyer that wishes to break the myth about lawyers
Andrew was recommended to me and I've been living the blessing of his expertise, knowledge and genuine care ever since. He helped me in an auto accident where both the liable party and the victim (myself) had the same insurance. I felt very cared for, prepared and always knowing what was to be expected. I could not recommend Andrew more highly...5 stars out of 5. You would be in great hands with this lawyer.

Peace of mind
I had seen some ups and downs in my life but when I was at my lowest point of view and picked up a few misdemeanor charges for being foolish and just about threw away any chance of a brighter future Andrew pointed me in the direction that would salvage my life from my mistakes. Besides from expert advice and representation Andrew helped me get back on track in rebuilding my life. I am forever grateful I met an attorney of such character.

Does Do What He Says on a DUI and Refusal
I had engaged one attorney for a 1st DUI and refusal and that attorney did not give me any framework or guidelines as to what to expect on the proceedings. All he would do is answer questions and not give any additional information or background. So I was left to piece things together based on his answers and information from internet. After 2 months I decided to switch to Mr. Simpson based on a referral from an attorney I work with who explained the whole process, probable outcomes and strategy. He also gave me homework do to such as community service, driver improvement class, and letters of recommendation. I did all that he asked and in the end he was able to negotiate my 1st DUI down to a reckless and got the refusal dropped. Although Mr. Simpson is not out there on the forefront, he will take the time necessary to provide good counsel and guidance. I strongly recommend Mr. Simpson for your legal defense.

Took on a complicated case and we won!
Mr. Simpson took on my reckless driving case which had a lot of complicated factors involved due to a car collision (I rear-ended a car that merged into my lane and broke really hard) and not only did he navigate through it seamlessly, he did so in a very professional and respectful manner. It was really a pleasure working with him and I felt like he knew exactly how to handle the complicated situation and was very confident in his legal knowledge. I would recommend Mr. Simpson many times over.

Extremely knowledgeable, thinking outside of the box/exploring all boxes out there
Mr. Simpson helped me negotiate a settlement with a car rental company, and he excelled despite the multiple complicated aspects to the matter: I was a foreign citizen, already abroad, and was driving a rental without liability insurance. I am very happy with the outcome, and equally happy with his approach to addressing my issue, his attitude in helping me navigate the complexity of the US legal system/process and the like. In an email, after extensive communication and before charging me a single dime, Mr. Simpson outlined all possible approaches he saw, with his estimate of outcomes and estimate of attorney costs - it was then that I was confident he was the best possible lawyer for me. Throughout the process I felt he really did care about my situation and my case, he has consulted me on all communication with the other lawyer, and made sure I understood each of the steps and possible implications. His expertise and experience really paid off! I would strongly recommend Mr. Simpson's services and am confident that he will get you the best possible results for your situation.

Great representation
Andrew was calm and collected when he heard my case and laid out the best case and worst case scenarios. He then proceeded to fight for the best case and got it within a timely manner.

A Guiding Hand
Andrew was the perfect guiding hand to take me through the worst time of my life. His legal counsel was outstanding, but moreover it was his ability to manage my emotions along with those of my loved ones that sets him apart. He worked tirelessly on my behalf, at all times even into the night. When errors were made by the court, he was a bulldog in making certain they were corrected sooner rather than later. His attention to detail and preparation made a big difference in the courtroom as we were able to achieve a better outcome than expected. I cannot say enough good things about Andrew or recommend him more!

Mr Simpson is Top Notch Representation!
Andy was there for me from day 1 and always available to talk/text/email whenever I needed his assistance. He is a true pro and excellent at pre trial negotiations. We settled my case before trial and we were compensated fairly by the insurance company we weee suing. I highly recommend Andrew Simpson to anyone in need of an attorney.

Well-Liked, Well-Respected,
Andrew Simpson assisted me with a reckless driving charge after I was accused of doing 87 mph in a 55 mph zone in Fairfax County, VA. The prospects of a good outcome were not promising for me. However, after getting a referral form my attorney ion Charlottesville, VA I contacted Andrew Simpson. Because of his skill as a lawyer, his obviously stellar reputation in the Fairfax County Court System, legal community and the great respect had for him from judges and attorneys alike he was able to turn a sure loser of a case into a non-moving violation with a $100 fine - i.e., no points, no insurance hikes, no hefty fines, no jail time. Andrew made himself available to me at all times and was always prompt in his responses to my phone calls and e-mails. As a fellow UVA Cavalier, I particularly appreciated Andrew's willingness to go the extra mile and to do his best for me to ensure the best possible outcome for my case. I give him my highest recommendation and reference and hope you will contact him should you find yourself in a legal bind.

Reliable Advice and Wisdom
I have worked with Andrew on several occasions and have come to rely on his bankruptcy expertise to help my own divorce clients. Andrew is knowledgeable, strategic, and wise. He swiftly came to my clients' aid -- once giving me the information I needed to argue bankruptcy law in a divorce case, and once providing advice and information that was critical to negotiating a settlement in my client's favor. I have recommended him to clients and would not hesitate to do so again in the future. Andrew is caring, responsive, and knows what he is doing.

Steady Hand
Andrew Simpson has been my personal legal adviser for more then 20 years. He has guided me through some very difficult situations. This included both a messy divorce, and an illegal substance charge. He is very highly regarded in the Northern Virginia legal system, and he knows many of the judges and prosecutors by name. This can be helpful when making a deal or plea bargain. I recommend Andrew highly as an attorney with integrity and a high level of commitment to his clients.

Wonderful Lawyer
I found Andrew Simpson to be affable, efficient, timely, knowledgeable, and skillful in handling our case. In what could have been a difficult and painful situatuation and process, Andrew made the process painless, and almost pleasant, even though it was an uncomfortable situation, being a bankruptcy. I would recommend Andrew to anyone seeking bankruptcy as that is his specialty. He was recommended to me as being one of the best and indeed I found him to be just that.

Personalble - Knowledgeable - Reliable - Deliver Results
Andrew has represented myself, spouse and many personal friends in traffic violations. In all cases, the outcomes were excellent. Andrew is not only a great attorney but a valued friend that understands the law and can simplify the most complex legal jargon into terms that regular person can understand. More importantly he is always there for you and if he doesn't know the answer, he will refer you to someone that does and can help you. Andrew knows his business and is someone that I trust implicitly.

An attorney who will fight your battles and win!
My family and I have been very pleased with Andrew's work. He was very up front about everything. He asked us to trust him and we did. Because of this trust we won! Andrew kept us from going to war in this battle for guardianship. He saved us a lot of pain and money. We are glad he came into our lives when he did. Amen!
