Mr. Herbert put in several hours of time personally with my husband and me examining our financial situation and finding the best solution for our financial problems. He explained both Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcies to us and the pros and cons for us personally for each type of filing. His service prices are fair and his staff was very helpful in guiding us through a stressful process. I strongly recommend his services to anyone considering bankruptcy.

I have known Marcus Herbert for going on 26 years. In that time he has handled several legal situations for me both personal and business. Over the years he has looked over business contracts and advised me on how to proceed. He came to my rescue, driving for hours from southern Illinois to Chicago to represent me at a law suit when my Chicago attorney was tied up in trial. He worked diligently and successfully when my completed bankruptcy was challenged by a creditor; combing carefully over every detail of the transcripts of the trustee meeting, contracts, and all other paperwork and convincing the plaintiff and their attorney's
that they did not have a valid case - they dropped the suit.
Personally Marcus Herbert is a man of integrity and honor. While his quite manner and good humor will put you at ease you will also come to realize as you speak to him that you can trust him implicitly. Professionally he is extremely knowledgeable in the law and as an attorney gives his utmost attention to the details and the truth. I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal services; particularly in the areas of financial advice, contract law and bankruptcy law.

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.
