Focused On Our Clients

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 40 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.

Attorney Anders is a member of the District of Columbia Bar, the Maryland State Bar and the New York Bar. To learn more about his legal background and experience, please visit the link below.
