About Andrew Lindsey

Andrew graduated cum laude from William & Mary Law School in 2014, where he focused in civil rights & criminal law. As a law student, Andrew received top grades in relevant coursework, participated in criminal law moot court competitions, and wrote multiple scholarly articles published in William & Mary’s legal internet blogs as well as its nationally-renowned Bill of Rights Journal, including his article on Virginia capital punishment. Andrew also acquired valuable experience working for defense attorneys, prosecutors, and judges alike at the state and federal levels in Virginia and Washington, D.C: including Virginia’s Central Capital Defender Office, the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice, and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

After law school, Andrew spent four years defending Virginians from criminal prosecutions as an attorney in the Alexandria and Suffolk Public Defender offices, as well as a private criminal defense attorney in Fairfax and Prince William Counties. In that time Andrew worked on cases ranging from the lowest of misdemeanors to the highest of felonies covered by the news media, and consistently satisfied clients of all different financial and cultural backgrounds.

Not only was Andrew awarded Avvo.com’s exclusive Client’s Choice Award in 2016, 2018, 2019, and 2020, he has never received less than a 5-out-of-5-star rating from a retained client on Avvo.com or Google Reviews. He also received Avvo’s Top Contributor award for the quantity and quality of his legal answers to anonymously-submitted legal questions by members of the public.

Andrew has further won the trust, praise, and respect of prosecutors and judges in multiple jurisdictions, as well as the Virginia Indigent Defense Commission. In addition to trials, Andrew has experienced much success in resolving cases before trial, and reducing clients’ sentences who hired him after losing their trials. Andrew has also handled multiple appeals to the Virginia Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Virginia, and has even overturned sentences imposed by the Virginia Parole Board long after criminal cases have ended.

Andrew prides himself on providing unrelenting and creative legal advocacy for every single client charged with any kind of crime. In order to continually provide the best service, Mr. Lindsey also attends 12 hours worth of Virginia Continuing Legal Education Seminars (“CLE’s”) every year.
