JASON MARCUS has worked almost exclusively with whistleblowers and the False Claims Act since 2008. He takes great pride in the fact that in every case, he has the honor of working for the "good guys" - whistleblowers who believe that nothing is more important than integrity and doing the right thing - and helping the United States dispense justice against cheats and frauds. Jason was named one of Georgia's Top Rated Lawyers by Legal Leaders, is annually selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine, and maintains the highest ratings of AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell and 10.0 by Avvo. He is a Board Member for the Qui Tam Section of the Federal Bar Association.
For as long as he can remember, Jason knew he would be a lawyer (other than a period in the fourth grade when he briefly contemplated dermatology). He graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law, cum laude, as the youngest member of the Class of 2006. While at UGA, in addition to indulging in his love of college football, Jason served as Notes Editor for the school's Journal of Intellectual Property Law and as President of the Sports & Entertainment Law Society. Prior to law school, Jason earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Tulane University after just two years in New Orleans, majoring in Political Economics and minoring in English.
After law school, Jason served as law clerk for the honorable Magistrate Judge G.R. Smith of the Southern District of Georgia. He served his term at the federal courthouse in Savannah, Georgia, where he gained an invaluable education that can come only from working for a respected federal judge. Jason then returned to metro Atlanta to work for a small practice, gaining experience in the courtroom litigating civil cases, as well as practicing criminal and family law.
In 2008, Jason was recruited to join a False Claims Act litigation boutique, where he worked closely with the firm's namesake and his future partner - Julie Bracker. After eight years of working together as a dynamic and nationally-recognized team in the qui tam arena, Jason and Julie partnered to open Bracker & Marcus LLC in January 2015.
Jason is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, Atlanta Bar Association, Federal Bar Association, Taxpayers Against Fraud ("TAF") Education Fund, and the Georgia Chapter of the National Employment Lawyers Association. He is admitted to all Georgia state courts, the Northern, Middle, and Southern Districts of Georgia, the Eastern District of Tennessee, the Eastern and Western Districts of Michigan, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, and has been admitted pro hac vice to practice in federal courts across the country.
Jason has lived in the metro Atlanta area for most of his life, and as a result is passionate about improving his local community. Jason's charitable endeavors include being a member of Keep Roswell Beautiful, twice organizing an annual North Fulton County First Responders Appreciation Event, and raising thousands of dollars for childhood cancer research with the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
In his free time, Jason enjoys exercising (for which he was featured in the Fulton Daily Report), playing with his dog Lily, traveling the globe, supporting local sports teams (Go Braves/Falcons/Hawks/Dawgs!), and watching every movie available (except musicals).
