Marko Jankovic, Esq is Senior Of Counsel with Solomon Law Firm, PLLC, and has over 16 years of experience practicing employment law, including as in-house employment counsel at large corporations and litigating employment cases at both large and small law firms. His practice is concentrated in advising companies on compliance with employment laws and federal sector employment law. Marko worked as in-house employment counsel most recently at Godaddy.com, a 4,000 employee international tech firm, for almost four years, and before that worked for over 6 years as in-house employment counsel at US Foods, a 25,000 employee food service company. Before he became in-house counsel, Marko litigated employment cases for the “Big Law” firm of Thelen Reid & Priest and represented federal employees before the MSPB and EEOC at Albo & Oblon.

With his background in litigation and expertise in employment law counseling, Marko is uniquely qualified to help companies avoid litigation by improving their policies and documents, handling EEOC charges and employee complaints and navigating the maze of employment laws that apply to even the smallest employers. As in-house employment counsel at large companies, Marko worked closely with management and human resources professionals to solve a large volume of employment law and policy problems for his clients every day. As a result, Marko has extensive experience reviewing and drafting policies, handbooks, terminations, claims of discrimination, accommodation and leave requests, FMLA matters, wage and hour issues and dealing with the EEOC. He believes in working closely with clients to develop the compliance solutions that are right for them considering the size of the company and the business realities faced by companies today. Marko also believes that most employment policies and agreements can be written in plain language – avoiding the often unnecessary "legalize" found in so much legal writing when possible.

Marko has been licensed to practice law in Virginia since 1997. He earned his J.D. with Honors from the George Mason University School of Law. Marko earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, with a major in Philosophy and minor in History. He also spent four post graduate years studying and teaching Philosophy of Language and Science in the doctoral program at University of Maryland, College Park. Marko also served in the U.S. Army Reserves as a Psychological Operations Sergeant during the 1990s. He enjoys spending time with his family and is a science fiction fan.
