    I fully endorse Marcus Herbert as an excellent attorney in the area of consumer and small business bankruptcy and commercial litigation. I have known him for over four years. During this time, we have consulted on numerous legal issues ranging from the finer points of civil practice rules to discovery to trial strategy. I have also brought in my own clients to meet with Mr. Herbert to help devise joint strategies to deal with multiple legal issues the clients were having such as inheritance, divorce, personal injury, and bankruptcy. Mr. Herbert's input was invaluable. On numerous occasions I have worked with him to cover hearings in Federal Court. I can attest that Mr. Herbert is honest, hard working, has expert knowledge in his area, and is excellent at explaining things to clients in a way they can understand. I would recommend Marcuis Herbert to any of my close friends or relatives that need the types of services that he provides.
