Litigation Attorney

About Charles A. de Azagra, Litigation Attorney

Charles A. de Azagra enjoys family law as it can be a very challenging career, and often requires a nebulous and nuanced understanding of both the law and its procedures to give a client the best opportunity for a great result in their case.

Mr Azagra’s defining characteristic is, “client gets ‘all of me’ as their attorney. “

“While the litigation process is often longer, more complex, and less intuitive than most clients initially expect when they meet with me for the first time, I have the required determination to zealously and competently advocate for my client’s best interests from the very beginning of their case to the very end — and beyond. My experience has shown that this quality in an attorney can make an extremely positive difference in a client’s case. “


Mr. Azagra is licensed to practice in Virginia.


Mr. Azagra earned his BA & MA from College of William & Mary. He earned his Juris Doctor from the George Mason University.

Professional Experience

Prior to joining Cordell & Cordell, he worked at a small, “boutique” law firm primarily practicing family law and criminal defense. At that same firm he gained experience in estate planning as well as business contracting (lease & asset transfer agreements; Last Wills & Testaments; Powers of Attorney) as well as miscellaneous civil litigation matters (breach of contract; breach of lease; personal injury).

He’s had an interest in practicing family law since taking a family law class in law school. He became President of the George Mason Family Law Society in my 3L year because he saw the potential for a rewarding and challenging career helping clients and their families through some of the most difficult times in their lives. Making a difference for others has always been a primary career goal of mine, and ultimately was a strong reason why he decided to go to law school. He’s been practicing family law since graduating law school and becoming a licensed attorney in Virginia – and he looks forward to continuing to grow my professional expertise in this legal practice area.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
