Welcome to Holmes Costin & Marcus


We are experienced civil trial lawyers based in Northern Virginia who appreciate that sometimes you have to go to court to solve your problem. We have secured positive outcomes for clients in courts, arbitrations and mediations throughout the United States. These days, we focus on helping people and businesses in disputes where control and money are at stake, and the disputes belong in federal court in Alexandria (also known as the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia or the EDVA) or state court in Fairfax (that is, the Fairfax County Circuit Court).

In addition to representing clients in business disputes in the federal and state courts of Northern Virginia, we represent clients in disputes over wills and trusts, serve as advocates for executives and other high-level employees when they are joining or separating from a company and assist clients in business formation and direction.
