About me

Attorney Patrick Anderson's expertise is criminal law and DUI defense in Northern Virginia. Unlike many other law firms who practice in many areas of law, Patrick's firm focuses exclusively on criminal defense, and has for over 25 years.


Upon earning his Juris Doctor degree in law from the University of Richmond, Attorney Anderson realized his true interest in helping those who have been charged with crimes. It became apparent to him that people are falsely accused of crimes, and that good people who do commit crimes deserve a chance for change.


The Law Offices of Patrick N. Anderson & Associates serves all of Northern Virginia, and has offices in Alexandria and Farifax, VA.  Patrick answers his phone around the clock to provide free legal consultations.
