"No Sales Pitch, No Pressure"

Hiring an attorney can be a confusing and stressful process, but it doesn't have to be. The most challenging aspect of the process is trying to determine what information you can rely on. After all, law firms are business, which can leave you questioning the reliability of information you receive. You may ask: am I being told certain things on a web page or in a consultation merely because the attorney wants me to hire them or because he or she truly believes what has been said?

Apart from our experience and case results, the top quality we pride ourselves on at Manikas Law is that you will receive no sales pitch and only straightforward, honest information. Sometimes that means we have to tell you we cannot be of much help with your legal problem. While that may be disappointing, we believe you need to have an honest assessment of the legal landscape as early as possible in the process. However, with some cases, it is not possible to tell the direction a case will take at the time of the consultation. While most prospective clients decide to move forward with representation at the time of the consultation, there will be no pressure to make a decision at that time.
