Criminal Defense Attorney

Work with a Lawyer Who Is Personally Invested in Your Case

Being accused of or charged with a criminal offense is one of the most life-changing events a person can face. If you have suddenly been placed under the overwhelming scrutiny of the criminal justice system, do not think that you must fight for your name, reputation, or freedom on your own. As a criminal defense lawyer in Fredericksburg, I can help you face the upcoming legal process. No matter what your case involves, I am prepared to provide a diligent, skillful, and tireless defense strategy for you.

I am Andrew J. Cornick, Attorney at Law, and I have more than 11 years of legal experience. As a former prosecutor, I am well aware of the various pitfalls or obstacles that may prevent you from securing the results you need. I know the personalities of local judges, prosecutors, and police officers and can share this knowledge with you so you have a better understanding of how they may handle your case. I understand that people from all walks of life can face criminal charges and I want to use my experience to help eliminate or mitigate the harsh consequences associated with a criminal conviction.

To talk to me about how I can help in your case, call my firm at (540) 827-4446 today.

Words of Thanks
from Past Clients

“I never felt like he judged me or thought badly of me because of what I was charged with. One of my favorite things about him is that he speaks to you in a way that normal people speak, uses language that is easy to understand and always explains things in depth to make sure you understand them all while maintaining a professional, friendly demeanor.” – Jess, Former Client

Helping People Who Are Facing the Hardest Tests of Their Lives

People come to my firm under dire circumstances. First-time offenders and repeat offenders alike can be facing the reality of a criminal conviction and the serious consequences that come with it. Whether you are properly the target of an investigation or have been falsely accused, whether you have been charged already or not, I am prepared to fight to secure the results you need to move forward with your life.

I personally enjoy the challenge of structuring a defense strategy to prevent collateral consequences, such as school or military discipline, or loss of security clearance. I understand that people from all walks of life find themselves facing criminal charges and I enjoy helping them avoid or minimize future issues.
