I want to inform the public about Mr. Marcellus. I'm not bashing him or on some witch hunt to get him. I feel the public deserves to know how he handled my case. Mr Marcellus did not show any real interest in this case. He never did any type of investigation of his own with information that was provided to him. He neglected to prepare his client for trial. He failed to provide the client with a copy of the discovery. He failed to act with due diligence (slacker). Failed to communicate with client. He did not prepare to deliver an opening statement or a closing argument. Mr Marcellus created his closing argument as he went along. I could not believe the foolishness that was coming out of his mouth. I was in disbelief. I was and still am disappointed with the closing argument he delivered. It was a fiasco more so a circus. I watched some of the jurors laughing as he was making his closing argument. I knew I was going to be found guilty just with Mr Marcellus overall performance from beginning to end. He was only interested in getting his money. He showed no concern that his client's life was in his hands. s
Serving 10 years thanks to Mr. Marcellus. The case was a beatable case based on other lawyers that has reviewed the case after the trial. Please do your research before hiring a lawyer. Just because a lawyer says they do criminal defense doesn't mean they have the expertise to give their client the best defense.

I highly recommend this lawfirm to anyone fighting criminal charges. They are the best at what they do, and specifically referring to Mr. Marcellus. Well known, well connected, incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. He gave my family tremedouse sense of secrity aboout my case.

He has to be the worst lawyer in the state of Florida. Very unprofessional with the lack of experience. All he want is money, money, money and didn't do anything for me. He is a compulsive liar who does a poor job. Doesn't like to answer the phone when I called but when it's time to get paid he available bright and early. If he was the last lawyer left you're better off defending yourself. Please anybody out there looking to hire this guy please look elsewhere. He's a waste of your time. In all honesty, this is not to bash. But to inform you into what you're getting yourself into. In court he lied to the judge about looking over my discovery when in fact he never in looked at the evidence. Overall I don't think this will be a good choice for anybody. Do your research and choose wisely. You're investing a lot into your life and once that money is handed over ain't no turning back.
