In their own words – Testimonials from clients
"Mike Manley is a great attorney. He did a great job for us. His staff are all very nice and easy to deal with. We would recommend them to anyone needing legal help." T.L.
"It is no exaggeration whatsoever when I say that Mike Manley and his associates saved my life. I made a grave mistake which cost me pretty much everything: my job; my reputation; my income; my home and my marriage. Not to mention the long arm of the law. To say that things seemed hopeless would be a gross understatement. Yet, at the time of my first encounter with Mike Manley he already gave me a sense of reassurance. Throughout the subsequent nine months he and his colleagues had crafted a settlement to my case that I never even imagined was possible. Those nine months were a difficult time of waiting and uncertainty, made worse by numerous delays due to the courts closing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, I received regular updates from Christy, legal assistant at the firm and an absolute gem of a person, who kept me informed and never failed to provide kind words and encouragement every time we spoke. Mike and his colleagues are not only professionals (and damn good) at what they do, but they also genuinely care about their clients. There is a stigma out there, some predisposition among members of the public with regard to attorneys in general. Well, I can confidently say that none of those "things" apply to this firm. I was treated as a person, as someone they believed in. That is something one cannot put a price tag on. Thanks to Mike and his team I have a new lease on life; the opportunity to pick up the pieces and rebuild what I had lost. These folks are my heroes and I am forever grateful." A.K.
