Marzulla Law, LLC

After years of significant experience at the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., large national law firms, and non-profit, public interest litigation, in 1997, Roger Marzulla and Nancie Marzulla founded Marzulla Law LLC.  Their goal was to offer the highest quality litigation services to individuals, combined with personalized service only a small firm can provide.  Today Marzulla Law operates to accomplish this mission–representing an array of landowners and business entities in takings litigation, breach of trust litigation, and contract claims in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. Given their broad backgrounds in environmental law, the Marzullas also represent clients in environmental challenges brought in federal district court for such issues as NEPA, wetlands, and the Endangered Species Act.  

As a boutique firm, Marzulla Law provides clients with personal attention, bringing to bear decades of experience to provide clients with the highest quality legal representation available in firms of any size. The Marzullas are frequent speakers and commentators on legal issues including takings, Court of Federal Claims litigation, and environmental litigation. Marzulla Law attorneys are also often brought in or consulted by other lawyers for their extensive expertise and litigation support in Court of Federal Claims cases.

Marzulla Law is proud to have been repeatedly recognized by Best Lawyers as a top tier firm in environmental litigation and listed in Super Lawyers.  Marzulla Law is also an active participant in the INBLF, a network of national boutique and large international firms.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with Nancie, Roger and the Marzulla Team during the last year. Their true and tried expertise in the takings field and in depth knowledge of the United States Court of Federal Claims has proven to be an invaluable asset in asserting and defending the clients interests against a formidable opponent.
