Anna-Marie Chiwanga


Anna-Marie Chiwanga is an attorney at our Washington, D.C. office, where she represents clients in complex criminal law cases. A fierce advocate for the accused, she approaches each case with kindness, empathy, and understanding.

Ms. Chiwanga was born in the small southeastern African country of Malawi before immigrating to the United States with her mother at the age of four. At this time, she attended meetings with her mother and their immigration attorney, witnessing firsthand the impact that sound legal representation can have on a person’s life and future.

Raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Ms. Chiwanga became a U.S. citizen at the age of 14. She attended an all-girl Catholic high school before going on to earn a degree in Legal Studies from St. John’s University in New York City. She then attended law school at Washington & Lee University School of Law in Lexington, Virginia. While in law school, Ms. Chiwanga participated in and won the Washington & Lee Law Moot Court Mediation Competition. She also served in the school’s Criminal Justice Clinic, where she worked with indigent clients in the Virginia area, and was an active member of the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, the Women Law Students Organization, and the Black Law Students Association, as well as president of the Student Bar Association and a Law Student Ambassador.

Ms. Chiwanga employs a collaborative, communication-based approach when working with her clients. She believes that all people from all walks of life deserve sound legal representation and an advocate who will fight for their rights.

Ms. Chiwanga is a Philadelphia Phillies fanatic and Eagles fan. She enjoys big city life and spending time with loved ones.
