Craig Anderson, Esq.

Principal & Founder of The Law Office of Craig Anderson

In 2013, Craig founded The Law Office of Craig Anderson based on his philosophy of “service to others.” A philosophy cultivated and developed through his education at the United States Air Force Academy and, subsequently, a 20-year career as an Air Force Lawyer (Judge Advocate) in the U. S. Air Force.

Craig represents a variety of clients with legal issues and problems, focusing on Trust and Estate Planning/Administration, Powers of Attorney, Advance Medical Directives, Guardianship and Conservatorship Procedures, Civil, Commercial, and Corporate Transactions (Documents, Leases, Contracts, and Deeds), Military and Veteran issues and services, as well as Mediation for Families.


Prior to transitioning to private practice in 1994 from his 20-year career as an Air Force Lawyer (Judge Advocate), Craig completed a four-year tour as the Chief, Environmental Law Branch, Air Combat Command at Langley Air Force Base in Hampton, Virginia. The branch had three full-time environmental attorneys and provided advice and legal services to more than 30 base-level legal offices. Craig was the primary legal advisor to command senior leadership and command engineers on all aspects of environmental law requirements.

Craig joined the Northern Virginia law firm of Hale Carlson Baumgartner, PLC in 1995. He was made a partner in 2002. He assisted clients in a variety of civil legal issues and problems, including business, corporate and commercial contracts, leases, regulatory and environmental/land use matters, and other related issues. His primary focus was assisting the firm’s clients with their wills, trusts, and estate planning.

During a four-year period from February 1997 through March 2001, Craig was “Of Counsel” to the law firm, and assumed full-time responsibilities as the General Counsel for an engineering services company in Northern Virginia. He acted as legal advisor for an affiliated public company – their products included a fire suppressant and an industrial odor controlling chemical compound. Both companies had outside attorneys for patent and securities specialty work. Craig advised senior officials in the company’s four divisions on the balance of legal issues resulting and during the execution of government and private contracts.
