Cook Craig and Francuzenko was originally formed in 2007 by our founding partner, John Cook. Joined by Alexander Francuzenko and Christopher Craig, the three partners formed the firm we know today as CC&F.
Starting with a firm of just two attorneys, we have expanded over time to seven lawyers, licensed in Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Maryland, as well as six administrative staff. We practice in nearly all jurisdictions in the Virginia/DC Metropolitan area, and in some cases, we are called to serve clients in matters requiring travel outside the region.

Our firm dedicates itself to addressing the needs of our clients. We doggedly solve problems for our clients, whether through advice and counsel, negotiation, or litigation. Clients in need of representation find our attorneys to be tough, knowledgeable, creative, and fair, but most importantly devoted to protecting their rights and pursuing their legal interests.
We recognize that our clients all come from different means, and we strive to provide cost-effective representation. For example, prospective clients who are concerned about their rights as employees can obtain a flat-fee consultation that includes review of relevant documents, a complete breakdown of Virginia and federal employment law, and an explanation of the employee’s options.
For executives or management needing advice on the negotiation of a severance package, in most cases, our attorneys are able to review and advise in a flat-fee consultation. Employers can receive a quick tutorial to get their businesses into compliance with the law. We can provide assistance in preparing employee handbooks, conduct third party investigations into alleged employee misconduct, and act as an “on call” resource if a contracts, human resources, or other business-related issue arises.
Personal injury and medical malpractice can be permanent, life altering events for the victim. We recognize the sensitive nature of these cases and our attorneys strive to ensure the best representation possible during these difficult times. Our firm can advise a client as to their options, negotiate on their behalf, and if necessary, file a law suit to ensure you recover what you’ve lost.
Our team also practices in a variety of other matters, including tax-exempt organizations, estate and trust planning, administration and litigation, trademark and copyright law and the like.You can learn more about our practice areas and information on consultations and fee structure can be found on our FAQ page.
