J. Harrison Powell, II
Harrison is an associate in the firm and focuses his practice on a wide range of civil litigation. He takes his position as attorney and counselor seriously, and seeks to help individuals and entities resolve their disputes as amicably as possible. However, when litigation is appropriate, Harrison believes that a focused, team-oriented approach is necessary to bring about a successful resolution.
Prior to joining the firm, Harrison clerked for a year in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, where he gained invaluable experience studying the litigation process under the mentorship of a federal judge. While in law school, he gained similarly invaluable experience as an intern with both the Court of Appeals of Virginia and the Chief Staff Attorney’s Office of the Supreme Court of Virginia.
Outside of his law practice, Harrison is an avid Wahoo fan, salt-water fisherman, and history enthusiast. He lives in Williamsburg, Virginia with his lovely wife and two furry companions, Holly and Toby.
