Firm Overview

My name is Justin J. Marcum, founder, and I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and give you some insight into our firm. My roots and my heart are in southern West Virginia.  I grew up here and have practiced law in the community since graduating from Appalachian School of Law.  I know the people who live here and understand the hard work they do.  Prior to college, I worked in the mines and grew up seeing first-hand the toll this dangerous work can take.  I am proud to serve as an advocate for people who have suffered that toll or anyone injured as a anyone who has been hurt on the job or due to an act of negligence.  In addition, we handle car wrecks, personal injury suits, estates, divorce and family law issues, property law, and legal document preparation.

We have based our business model on five core principles that we feel define who we are as a company. I’m confident you’ll find these beliefs & standards are what separate us from other law firms.


Here at Marcum Law, we have an experienced legal team and in the courtroom, experience matters.  Justin Marcum and paralegal and office manager Wannetta Sansom understand the laws and the courtrooms in which they are applied.  Our team is respected for their knowledge of the law, trial skills, and the extensive preparation they devote to each case and the results they achieve.


Working with Marcum Law Office is more than a client-attorney transaction. It’s a friendship. We believe in being accessible and within reach of our clients 24/7. I make it my personal duty to return calls and correspondence promptly, while ensuring each and every client knows they are very important to us. Our firm keeps a manageable caseload at all times in an effort to provide a higher standard of personalized service with in-depth research and due diligence towards educated, informed decisions. My team works closely with all clients to provide honest, friendly service and an overall positive legal experience, no matter what the nature of your case may be. At Marcum Law, you will have an experienced team by your side from start to finish.  You will be kept updated on your case’s progress and we will be here to help with any issues every step of the way.


It seems very few law firms tout their low rates these days. We’re on a mission to see that is changed. As a local lawyer in Southern West Virginia, I believe in helping those in my community and not taking advantage in their time of need. Although there are inevitable costs involved when hiring an attorney, it is often far less expensive than not doing so. Acting alone without proper legal counsel will almost always lead to costly problems and unsavory case results. Additionally, we are always available for free or low-cost consultations. Here at Marcum Law Office we will work with you to ensure you receive top-notch legal guidance & services without spending too much. And as always, there is never a fee for personal injury cases unless you recover from the injuries sustained before the verdict is established.

Open & Honest Representation:

Here at Marcum Law Office, we believe honesty is the single highest priority in our partnership with clients. As an attorney, it is my sworn duty to act in the best interest of my clients within the bounds of the law. For some, that comes in the form of guidance, consultation, courtroom representation, education or even hand holding. When working with us, you’ll always hear the complete and honest truth, regardless of whether or not you want to.

The Client’s Right:

Simply put, clients deserve more. As previously mentioned, we feel the term “client” exudes a distance and lack of personal relationship. While that may be acceptable for other law firms and businesses, Marcum Law Office believes in partnerships and genuine dedication to those who choose to work with us. Clients have the right to access the entirety of our knowledgeable staff. They have the right to be treated with the highest level of honesty, confidentiality, respect and compassion. They deserve an attorney with their best interests in mind–someone who cares for their well-being on a personal level. Clients also have the right to know the specifics of pricing and services before signing-on, with detailed explanation.
