Our hallmarks are top-quality work tailored to our clients’ goals, efficient and hands-on service, uncompromising ethics and a competitive fee structure.

FIRST CLASS LEGAL WORK
We come to The Marcus Firm from top law firms in Washington, D.C. — Covington & Burling, Williams & Connolly, and Steptoe & Johnson—where we developed our litigation expertise and learned to practice law at the highest level.  We are all motivated by the belief that doing excellent legal work is the most essential ingredient in representing our clients successfully. 

STRATEGIC FOCUS
The legal process is a means, not the end, and must be shaped to fit the client’s needs. We develop a deep understanding of our clients’ goals and help them achieve those goals with creative strategies that use both negotiation and litigation toward successful outcomes.  

CLIENT SERVICE
In our litigation-oriented practice, we know that our clients often face high stakes.  We work closely with each client to understand its specific expectations and concerns and implement responsive strategies that are timely and efficient.

UNCOMPROMISING ETHICS
Our commitment to high ethical standards is essential to all our work.  Zealous advocacy, keeping clients informed about the progress of our representation, loyalty, candor with courts, and professionalism with our colleagues—these are some of the ethical values that inform everything that we do as lawyers.  

REASONABLE FEES
As a small and efficient firm, we are able to provide a high level of service on financial terms more favorable than our peers in many other firms.  In a competitive marketplace, this is our niche—to provide high-quality, client-focused legal services at reasonable rates.
