Attorney David Manes is a great asset and source of information for my small business. He is incredibly accessible and very quick to respond to my emails and phone calls… He brings a lot of ideas and knowledge to the table that are essential for my small business growth.
Bryan, small business client
David Manes is extremely knowledgeable, as well as personable. He listens very well and takes into account your company’s needs. Furthermore, David is very helpful in guiding you towards what legal services are best for you and your company.
Melissa, small business client
From the first time that I spoke with David Manes, it was evident that he was extremely knowledgeable, personable, and truly interested in what my husband and I were trying to accomplish through the legal system. He was, by far, the only lawyer who we talked with that had a true passion for his job. Needless to say, we are extremely happy with our decision in choosing Mr. Manes. He has gone above and beyond to answer any and all questions that we have had throughout our legal process and has been our guide each step of the way.
