  • "It was very clear to me during my search for legal counsel that I had my choice between generic law firms with an inch deep of experience across many areas..."

    It was very clear to me during my search for legal counsel that I had my choice between generic law firms with an inch deep of experience across many areas, or a dedicated lawyer with a profound level of expertise in the subject matter relevant to my case. Kyle Manikas is that experienced lawyer. It was immediately evident that he knew the system inside and out, to include intangible experiences gained while working as a prosecuting attorney in the very same court where he now defends clients. He worked my case with personal care and was always prompt, clear and concise when dealing with my situation. His relationships at the courthouse and his attention to detail helped him find a small inconsistency in the case that gave him the leverage to plea bargain a reduction in the charges against me when the situation looked dire. I am very pleased with my decision to solicit Manikas Law to defend my case and would recommend him to anyone.

  • "I was charged with reckless driving in Fairfax . . . "

    I was charged with reckless driving in Fairfax . . . After consulting numerous lawyers, I decided to go ahead with Mr. Manikas. I couldn't afford to have a Class I misdemeanor and Mr. Manikas helped me get that reduced to a speeding ticket. He was extremely helpful in answering questions even before I hired him and he has always been very quick on responding to my e-mails/calls. He told me the things that I needed to do so that we could build up the case and improve the chances of getting a favorable outcome . . . he was right on point on letting me know the things I needed to take care [of].

  • "I want to thank you for representing me today in court...

    I want to thank you for representing me today in court. I had received a list of quality lawyers from a Fairfax County judge [a list which Kyle Manikas was on], most of which I called. I decided to use you for several reasons. First, I felt your time in prosecutor's office would result in strong relationships with the current prosecutors. Second, when talking to you on the phone, I got the sense you had superior understanding of the reckless driving law and had the best feel for how things would progress. And last, your fee structure, while a little higher than some of the other attorneys’, included all continuances and trial costs should the case have gotten that far. I'm glad I chose you and think this was the best outcome I could have received in a bad situation. Fortunately, I don't know any people in need of a lawyer, but would recommend you if I did . . . not something I take lightly.

  • "Kyle Manikas is an excellent criminal defense attorney and trial lawyer..."

    Kyle Manikas is an excellent criminal defense attorney and trial lawyer. He successfully defended a member of my family . . . Mr. Manikas is an incredibly hard worker. He knows the law and prepares meticulously. He made strategic use of legal tools that other lawyers we had consulted never mentioned were available. He is a masterful litigator in the courtroom. In this case, he achieved a remarkably positive outcome, even earning compliments from the judge for his outstanding work. Mr. Manikas also was a skillful negotiator on other unrelated charges. In addition, Kyle was a wise, calming advisor during very stressful times. From the first time we talked with him, he gave us hope. He was always prompt in returning phone calls and kept us well-informed of his progress and thinking. There was never any doubt that he honestly cared about his client and about providing the best possible legal representation that he could. He proved himself to be trustworthy and effective. I have the highest regard for Mr. Manikas and absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs legal help. We couldn't have asked for a better lawyer.

  • "Thank You very much for providing me with legal representation.

    Thank You very much for providing me with legal representation. I appreciate your candor in guiding me to reasonable expectations for the results. My surprise at the far better-than-expected outcome has turned to deep respect for your professional skills and remarkable abilities. You combined knowledge of state laws and county statutes and broad experience with clearly exceptional negotiating skills to achieve an outcome that was beyond my most optimistic expectations. You were encouraged by assignment of a “flexible” judge and gave credit to a crowded docket, but only certainty is that luck was not part of the equation. I will ponder for a long time: “How did he do that?” The obvious answer is a remarkable combination of consummate professionalism with an unwavering drive to serve your client’s interests. I appreciate the time you spent to listen to the facts surrounding my case. It reflects commitment at both the professional and personal level, and established an enduring trust for which I am grateful. Sincerely

  • "Sorry it took so long to hear from me but I have thought about sending you this thank you card for so long..."

    Sorry it took so long to hear from me but I have thought about sending you this thank you card for so long. Norman and I can’t express how grateful we are for all you did for him (us). I had and still do have so much faith in you and your work. Mr. Manikas, both you and your receptionist are wonderful people. You made us feel so at ease, and for that, we thank you. When we walked in your office that first day, I knew right then we came to the right place. You were God sent, He directed us to you and I was so right. [We] both feel blessed to have had the honor of having you on our side and for that, we are so very grateful. We can’t thank you enough. Thank you.

  • "I have been in the criminal justice field for almost 20 years..."

    I have been in the criminal justice field for almost 20 years, involved in many cases but found myself on the other side with a reckless driving charge. I was scared. Kyle and his staff put me at ease and returned my phone calls within minutes. Kyle told me exactly what to do and met me in his office to explain what could happen. While awaiting court, Kyle was keeping me informed and I never felt like I was in the dark. While waiting in the lobby I actually recommended Manikas Law Firm to people sitting around me. Truly a top rate firm with knowledgeable people and I would recommend them to everyone. Thank You Kyle.

  • "Mr. Manikas an incredible attorney..."

    Mr. Manikas an incredible attorney - extremely professional, knowledgeable and honest. As a former Prosecutor in Fairfax County he knows how the system works and has a very good working relationship with all of the Judges and Prosecutors. He was very upfront with me from our initial meeting on the likely outcome of my DUI case which I greatly appreciated, He was very responsive in answering any and all questions I had promptly which reduced any anxiety I felt. As it turned out, through the efforts of Mr. Manikas and his knowledge of proper legal procedures, he was able to have my case resolved with a Nolle Prosequi disposition - by far a better outcome than I had even hoped for in this case. Without a doubt, I know I made the right decision by retaining Mr. Manikas as my Attorney and would recommend that anyone in need of legal representation as a Defendant seriously consider retaining his services.
