Best lawyer in the world!
I contacted Mr. Marshall about my case and he made me feel at ease from our very first conversation. He listened and told me he was the guy for the job and that I had nothing to worry about. He answered all of my calls and kept me informed every time I had a court date. He fought and tough fight for me and prevailed. He was my voice and proved my innocence. Victor Marshall is the best lawyer I’ve ever known and I recommend him to everyone! Thank you soooo much Tommy

Highly recommended and professional! Best decision with positive outcome
Mr. Marshall is very professional. He was always available and attentive. He became a part of our family. Our son was facing a felony with jail time. We are from the east caost and did not know who to turn to. We choose him from a number of attorneys online. Our first meeting he gave us a clear understanding of what we were facing. He simplified it so that we could have a better understanding. By the time we left his office we were feeling that we had made the right choose. He put together personal interviews and organized the facts about our son in order to show the court that our son had truly made a mistake. When it was all said and done our son's charges were dropped to a misdemeanor with no jail time or felony probation. Now our son has a second chance. You read these reviews and don't really know if they are real or staged but I can assure that this review is real. We wasn't told what to say, this is coming from our hearts. Mr. Marshall was a God sent and we appreciate all that he has done for our family. If you need an attorney and don't know where to start, start with him. Just go talk to him and see the professionalism for yourself.

Outstanding, and Heaven sent to work with family's.
I would highly recommend Victor C. Marshall if any family need a Lawyer. Mr Marshall was very quick to respond to the needs of my son. It was very easy to talk to Mr Marshall about the case and my concerns. Mr Marshall is very professional and educated about the law. The one thing that stood out the most was is willingness to work out a payment plan for me and he still work just has hard on the case as if I had been paid in full and he was very patient and understanding. My son was dropped of every charge. I thank God for leading me to Mr Marshall he was ordain by God to get the job done.

Trustworthy - Respectful - Reliable - FAST
I have known Victor for several years, was never a client. Recently, I found myself needing a good attorney. I looked up recommend attorneys on this site and reconnected with Victor. He was like an Angel in disguise - there for any question or concerns I had. He made me feel at my best during a time when I was at my worse. I couldn't have asked for a more precise, intelligent, and caring Attorney - Victor has every good quality needed in a good defense attorney. I will be forever thankful to Victor for the FAST and excellent job he did in resolving my case and giving me peace of mind.

Appreciative of an Honest job well done with Integrity!
Attorney V. Marshall provided our family excellent service in our time of urgent need. He demonstrated dedication and loyalty to my brother's case; he reassured his best he would do; with his many years of experience his confidence and passion was reassuring enough to know that God had chosen Mr. Marshall to be our angel for this season. I'm grateful for Ms. Maria and Mr. Kenny for their support as well. I love you all and will always pray for you and recommend your service to others in need. God bless

Very Experienced Lawyer
I am a fellow criminal defense lawywer who knows of Mr. Marshall's work. He has tried the most serious and complex cases criminal law has to offer. His work includes successful defenses of death penalty and murder cases. He has trained at the National Criminal Defense College and Jerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College.

Extremely Professional
Mr. Marshall is an outstanding lawyer. He has a way of not only explaining complex legal issues to his clients, but in my case, did it in such a way that I was fully informed, yet not 'talked down to', like some attorneys do. Mr. Marshall made me feel like the most important person in the courtroom. He knows the law inside and out and is extremely well respected by all of the people in court. I hope not to get into any kind of legal issues again, but if any of my friends or family need a lawyer, I will make sure that they call ONLY him.

Dedicated & Loyal
Mr. Marshall is a dedicated and loyal attorney. He assisted me on an old criminal case, that could have taken me to state prison, but his dedication and knowledge got my case dismissed. I highly recommend him. He is up front with all alternatives and options on your case in order to settle it in your best interest. Using his office will be the best decision ever made....

One of the Best, if not, THE Best!
I can't thank Mr. Marshall and his team, enough for all they have done for me. I had a case that I really didn't know what the outcome would be. A lot was on the line, and Mr. Marshall was straight up from the beginning of all possible outcomes. He kept me informed of progress of his investigation and any information that came his way. Mr. Marshall answered any and all questions I had during that stressful time for me, and never once did i doubt his knowledge and abilities as a lawyer. In the end, the best possible outcome of my situation became a reality and I was a free man. He is also a christian man. For those that believe in GOD, believe he is doing GOD's work. We all make mistakes in life and some of which we must confide in a lawyer to get through them and I recommend Mr. Marshall as that lawyer. Thank you again, Mr. Marshall.

Great Lawyer
In my opinion, Mr. Marshall is one of the best criminal lawyers there is. He listened intently to the facts, assessed my case, and strategically developed a plan suitable for this type case. He has proved to be real and unbasis under the circumstances. Because of Mr. Marshall's skills, abilities, and expertize, a favorable resolution was received.

Review from M. Young
I was extremely impressed with Mr. Marshall. I've dealt with other lawyers before, and none of them can compare to Mr. Marshall. He treated my situation as if he truly cared. He didin't approach my case from a clinical perspective, but from an emotional one. He helped me organize and tell my story in a way that the jury connected with me on a very human level. I believe that Mr. Marshall gave me the best counsel and encouragement possible!
