Criminal defense attorney Anastasia Kranias with Liza Yang

“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. ”
