I am a member of the Firm's General Litigation, Real Property & Asset Management, and Professional Responsibility Practice Groups. I was selected as a 2015 Super Lawyer for Appellate, Civil Litigation, and Real Property Law by Super Lawyers Magazine, published by Thomson Reuters, and was a "Super Lawyer: Rising Star" in 2014. I also have an AV Preeminent™ rating from Martindale-Hubbell®.
I am an active member of the Fairfax Bar Association and a Fairfax native. I have organized and moderated several CLEs, and received the Fairfax Bar Association 2013 President’s Award for outstanding service to the bar. Pursuant to my love of appellate practice, I publish same-day summaries of noteworthy opinions issued by the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the D.C. and Fourth Circuits, and the Virginia Supreme Court for the public.
I received my J.D., cum laude, from George Mason University School of Law, where I was an associate editor of the Civil Rights Law Journal and a member of the Moot Court Board. I also served as the school's Honor Committee Chairman for two years. I received a B.S. in Telecommunications from Ohio University.
I am admitted to practice in the District of Columbia, Virginia, Maryland, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Columbia.

James Markels is a skilled trial and appellate advocate with a broad knowledge base giving him flexibility in a litigation setting. I am proud to say he is one of a few people I can rely on for civil procedural advice in more unique situations. I would strongly recommend Mr. Markels to anyone seeking able litigation counsel.
