He Knows His Job Very Well!
When you deal with Mr. Herbert you don't feel like you are being at the meeting with a lawyer, you feel like you are dealing with a good friend. But do not underestimate Mr. Herbert, he knows his job very well! He is knowledgeable, meticulous, patient, and experienced attorney. He always puts your interests first, pays attention to your opinion and your needs. He helped my family to save a lot of money. Thank you so much Mr. Herbert!
