Attorney Christina Raskin represented me in a wrongful termination case against a major retailer. She always made herself available to me to answer any questions along the way. She is a hands on attorney who is involved in the process every step of the way. She is kind but forceful when needed. I am happy with the results and highly recommend her.


This attorney represented me in a CPO case in the DC Superior Court. My case got dismissed! I could not have done it without my lawyer. She went up against two lawyers with tremendous confidence and skill. I could not have been happier with the results. I have now hired her to represent me in a Custody matter. I highly recommend her.

José G.

I have known Attorney Raskin for over twenty years both personally and professionally. I know her to be an experienced and effective criminal defense attorney and an intense advocate and aggressive trial strategist. She is always well prepared and on top of her game. She worked as a prosecutor for eight years where she handled a myriad of criminal cases, including DWI and DUI cases. You are in good hands with this lawyer. I highly recommend her.

Attorney Mark R

I have known Attorney Raskin professionally for twelve years. During this time, I had an opportunity to witness Attorney Raskin's professional temperament, legal skills and communication with the Court. I assess Attorney Raskin to be a hard-working, zealous advocate who is committed to her clients and to upholding the dignity of the legal profession through her work ethic and professionalism. I recommend this lawyer without hesitation!

Attorney: Sharon W.

Attorney Raskin represented me in a co-defendant criminal case. She did an outstanding job. The case was ultimately dismissed. This was important because my case carried immigration consequences. Thank you attorney Raskin. I highly recommend her.

Saul A.

Christina Raskin was recommended to me through a friend when I was faced with a DUI charge in D.C., and I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer! The days leading up to the trial filled me with so much stress and worry, but she was there every step of the way and made me feel like a long-time friend. She accompanied me to the DMV for the hearing, as well as to the location of arrest to do an on-site survey; seeing her work in-person was truly a marvel. Don't let her kind demeanor fool you, she's a fighter! Ultimately the case was dismissed, and I cannot explain the feeling of triumph and relief once the gavel struck. Unfortunately the arrest followed me (to no fault of Christina Raskin) to my home state outside of D.C., but even then she recommended another lawyer that was able to help me where she was unable. I am so fortunate that Christina Raskin was recommended to me, and I cannot recommend her enough myself! She is well connected, professional, and truly cares about her clients. To anyone looking for the right lawyer, look no further!

Attorney Raskin is a teacher to other lawyers. I highly recommend Attorney Raskin as the top choice for your defense.
