Herb is a good man

Herb Moncier is a good man and an excellent lawyer who zealously defends and represents people who hire him. He is too, selective about the cases he accepts and often accepts the messy cases where governmental officials have engaged in wrong doing. There are many of those in Knox County, Sevier County, Monroe County, Campbell County, and all over eastern TN. Just because a judge feels that Herb Moncier stepped on his toes, is no reason to penalize him for a life long quest of practicing law. Seems that the judiciary is trying to quash the very people who engage in zealous practice and what law practice was ideally intended to be.
The facts are these. Right, wrong, indifferent, guilty, or not guilty, Moncier, if your hired gun, will fight zealously to the end. Moncier may be arrogant and Moncier may be a lot of things, but honestly would you wish him to represent you with all the vigor he had, or are you concerned more with him being a nice guy? Do you wish to hire some nice guy who is scared that he will engage in ethical violations or offending people or in getting to the truth?
Moncier is one heck of an attorney and a good man, whom has raised two kids alone, one of them being developmentally disabled, and underneath that arrogance lies a man with a true heart and passion for what he does.
One does not get this sort of reputation for simply being a nice guy, as nice guys do not always get the job done.
I am sure there are some in TN wrongfully incarcerated because their attorney was more concerned about being nice and not offending the God Almighty judge or court authorities, rather than getting to the truth.
Moncier is one of a kind. They do not make lawyers like this anymore.
Whatever Herb Moncier opts to do, he will be successful and be a thorn in the corrupt officials side as it is his passion that drives him.

Clarance Darrow would be proud.

This post sounds like a sales pitch. Who REALLY cares if he drops out of the court system. Big deal he is just another ole crusty lawyer.

Guess the "nuts" judger doesn't follow the news. Remember, Herb,and Cumberland ave Mc Donalds? Herb didn't like the service so he took off with their work schedules.

I remember. I thought McDonald's comment was funny. I have always liked Herb. He's not afraid to fight the establishment and someone needs to. Maybe every legal community needs one Herb Moncier but 2 would be unbearable.
