Partner Brett Marston to serve second term on Virginia State Bar Council
“We congratulate Brett on his second term on the Council and commend him for his ongoing leadership of the Virginia State Bar,” said Gentry Locke Managing Partner Monica Taylor Monday.
The Council is an 81-person body consisting of 65 lawyers elected throughout the Commonwealth, as well as nine at-large members appointed by the Supreme Court of Virginia, four conference chairs, and three officers. Lawyers elect their Council representatives by popular vote. Council members may serve two three-year terms, but must be re-elected to serve a second term.
Brett chairs the firm’s Construction Law practice group and has extensive experience in construction contract negotiations and preparation, payment disputes, mechanic’s liens, bond claims, construction defects, delay claims, insurance and OSHA matters. He handles significant construction matters in federal and state courts, arbitration and mediation for general contractors, subcontractors, owners, design professionals and suppliers. In addition, Brett was inducted into the Virginia Law Foundation (VLF) Fellows Class of 2019, and is consistently selected for inclusion in the annual Virginia Super Lawyers list, has consecutively made their Virginia “Top 10” and “Top 100” lists, and has thrice been named “Roanoke Lawyer of the Year” for Construction Law by The Best Lawyers in America. Brett was named to the 2018 class of “Leaders in the Law” by Virginia Lawyers Weekly. He earned his B.A. from the University of Virginia and his J.D., with distinction, from the George Mason University School of Law.
