A Skilled Litigator Looking Out For Your Interests
Hiring legal counsel is a big decision, especially when your life has been turned upside down by an arrest. Your employment, family life and freedom may be at risk. I am criminal defense attorney Andrew T. Christie, and I will listen to your story, describe your options and outline the possible outcomes of your case.
I have defended clients against a wide range of criminal charges, including:
- DUIs, including felony DUI charges
- Drug offenses, including possession, sales and manufacturing
- Sex offenses such as rape and internet sex crimes
- Theft offenses including burglary
- Serious felonies, including homicide and weapons charges
- Assault and battery and domestic assault
- Traffic violations
- Municipal offenses
Focus On Preparation And Communication
I have helped hundreds of clients fight felony and misdemeanor charges, including many jury trials. As an experienced litigator, I take pride in working hard to secure the best possible outcome for my clients. Preparation is the key to success at trial. I will work to negotiate a plea deal if you want me to, but I always prepare for trial in case one is necessary.
Clients appreciate my commitment to communication. If you have been charged with a crime, you are already in a difficult situation and I do not want to add to your stress. I will keep you informed about the status of your case, even when that means talking after hours or on weekends. I also offer payment plans because I understand hiring a defense lawyer is an unplanned expense.
