Miracle worker
My new friend/employer hired Mr. Christie in 2020. It was a month before my pre trial conference for 8 felony charges in Lafayette County occurring in 2018. My Public Defender said 10yrs or trial, I choose trial and bonded out. Posting bond disqualifies defendants for a public defender, therefore I was forced to pro se. I filed a couple motions,resulting in more felony charges and bond revocation. This is when the boss retained Mr.Christie. I also continued to consult with other attorneys regarding my charges despite it being frowned upon. Mr. Christie remained calm, reserved, and consistent in his approach with me as well as his approach to the D.A. and Judge. 6 out of 7 lawyers told me there was no way I was not going to D.O.C.. The one who said he sees an angle for probation was Mr. Christie and he was astonishingly accurate! I spoke with Judges that practice part-time criminal defense in Lafayette also with lawyers practicing there for 30+ years. These guys wanted double the amount I paid Mr. Christie and they each said I would still go to D.O.C. for some time. This last Mr. Christie just kept repeating that I needed to trust him, but I didn't. I doubted him and even lashed out at one point. He never lied, he never promised me anything, he never made me feel judged, and he paid attention to my well being. If you are reading this you are thinking about retaining him and I want to encourage you to do it now, you will not find a better option specifically anywhere in Lafayette County.

We could not have asked for a better attorney, when our teen was charged with a felony. We never second guessed in our decision to hire, Christie. He went above and beyond, one attorney who truly cares about his clients and fighting for them. We are forever grateful! He will fight for you, and available for you when you have any questions. He comes highly recommended on every level.

Andrew did an excellent job with our case, clearly explaining the possible outcomes and staying in constant contact with updates.

Highly recommend! A great person to have on your side!
I hired Andrew Christie to represent me after I was pulled over in Missouri for speeding. I felt that law enforcement violated my rights and conducted an unlawful search, which resulted in several charges being filed against me. Andrew took care of everything and all of my charges were dismissed. His communication skills are quite impressive for a busy attorney. He gets back to you almost immediately if you have questions during business hours and he listens to you and your concerns. If you need a great attorney, call this guy! :)

I was out of state and found myself in need of a criminal defense attorney. Someone local referred me to Andrew T. Christie. That one decision to have Andrew represent me on criminal charges turned out to literally be life changing. He was excellent about keeping us informed throughout each step of the legal process. He was always available for questions, showed endless patience, and returned calls promptly. Even though there were factors that seemed to be heavily stacked against me, he kept a positive attitude, which was very comforting during this very stressful situation. Andrew put together an outstanding defense strategy through excellent knowledge of the law and obtained an outcome better than I ever dreamed. If you need a highly skilled criminal defense attorney, I whole heartedly recommend Andrew Christie for any legal challenge you might encounter.

Above and Beyond
I recommend Andrew to anyone that needs a lawyer with probation or any other issues. He went above and beyond for our son. He saw that our case was going to be an uphill battle but he didn't shy away from it and was able to help our son. Andrew was up front and honest with us even with news that was hard to hear. He was respectful and patient with my husband, son and I. When we had questions, he was always there to answer them in a prompt and timely manner. If my family ever needs a lawyer again, I will be calling Andrew Christie first. He was there during one of our most difficult times and made it easier. Thanks Andrew!!

Outstanding Criminal Defense
I have been a business owner for over 25 years and have recently been subjected to unfounded criminal prosecution in several states along with my business partners for basically the same alleged crimes. I have had to retain separate council in each state in order to defend myself. I have had the unfortunate experience of seeing just how tough a process it can be to find an attorney who you can not only communicate with but who will regularly communicate back in a timely manner. It is scary to know that as an innocent father of 4 daughters that my life and theirs is literally in the hands of someone that you can only hope will fight for you as if they were fighting for their own family. I have seen first hand in my cases and as well as that of others that most often you are a mere number or at best a pay check for someone. Andrew Christie is exactly what the legal profession is suppose to stand for. Andrew is someone who although must earn a living, is also and more importantly concerned with justice for his clients. He has always been accessible even though he hasn't always had the pleasure of delivering great news. If you are looking for an attorney who is skilled, compassionate and dedicated to his clients and profession than you need not look any further. I only wish he were licensed in more states.

I couldn't be anymore grateful for what Andrew has done for me so far. I had built up six city charges and managed to throw in three felonies on top of them. The city charges were all amended or thrown out and the outcome with the three felonies, I know will be the best I can receive. He understands people go through rough times and he will really work for you. In my case, go above and beyond to gain the best possible outcome.

Professional, smart and kind
After an easy consultation over the phone I hired Andrew Christie and quickly had my license reinstated and all drug charges dropped. He is to the point and got things done for me. After years of running from my legal issues, which included many parking tickets, a suspended license, driving on a suspended license and a few drug related charges. I'm now legal and it's all because I hired Andrew Christie.

Great Job
I used Andrew for a felony charge regarding my son and it was a complicated case. After firing 2 attorneys locally I ran across Andrew. He worked very hard at getting the best possible solution for my son and the charge ended up being reduced. He was looking at felony probation for 5 years and he was able to get everything reduced for him. I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone.
