  • Life saver...In the past he has worked as a prosecutor, and KNOWS the very people who were trying to put me away...

    Life saver.  I was arrested with a class 5 felony with a minimum 1 year mandatory jail sentence for delivering 2 pounds of weed that wasn't even mine. I would have lost my job, my home. I would have gone bankrupt. Forget about a life after prison. After researching easily 50 different lawyers, I realized Mr. Manikas was the obvious best choice. In the past he has worked as a prosecutor, and KNOWS the very people who were trying to put me away. I did nothing to give the prosecutor any reason to give me leniency so I was definitely looking at the worst possible situation. Mr. Manikas relentlessly worked with the detectives and prosecutors to get me the best possible deal. Instead of a felony, I received a misdemeanor for minor possession, no jail time, no parole officer. Just a restricted driver's license for six months. I have my job, my home and my life. There isn't a day I don't wake up and realize how incredibly fortunate I am.

  • He not only helped my cases but also helped me better my life. . .

    Highly Recommend Mr. Manikas.  Mr. Manikas handled several cases for me. When I first met with him, he gave me helpful recommendations that not only helped my cases but also helped me better my life. His knowledge of the legal system and his previous experience working as a prosecutor helped him to handle my cases with skill. Out of 7 charges that Mr. Manikas handled, 6 were completely dropped. The only charge that wasn't dropped was a felony charge that he got pled down to a misdemeanor with all jail time suspended. Not only is Mr. Manikas a great lawyer, but he is a great person as well. Despite the fact that I ended up with 7 charges over the course of 17 days while I was in active alcoholism, he never once made me feel judged. As a result of following Mr. Manikas's recommendations and his expertise with the law, I was able to get my life back.

  • Kyle is as sharp as they come...

    One of the best I've seen. I hired Kyle on the recommendation of a longtime friend of mine for an assault charge. Kyle is as sharp as they come. The assault charge was dismissed because of his legal expertise. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone. I wish that Kyle handled Divorce cases; I would fire my present Lawyer and hire him in a heartbeat.

  • The best Attorney in VA. Excellent of the Excellent...

    The best Attorney in VA. Excellent of the Excellent Just love to share my excellence experience with all people.  I got RECKLESS ticket in Feb. The case type in VA is Class-1 Misdemeanor. It means I will get at least couple thousands dollars fine and 6-point with 10-year history.  I hired Mr. Manikas to be my attorney to handle my case. With Mr. Manikas' hard work, it is reduced to Infraction case type with an ice cream price fine, no any point. It is the best result for a RECKLESS case.  I am really happy with the result.  Mr. Manikas is best of the best.  I highly recommend Manikas.

  • This man is very knowledgeable, professional, attentive, helpful, informative and overall wise and fair...

    Great attorney! Mr. Manikas help me out a few times with some speeding violations, and each time he was able to get my charges either dismissed or reduced to something that would not affect me with points. This man is very knowledgeable, professional, attentive, helpful, informative and overall wise and fair. Each time that he helped me, he walked me through the process without any hesitation. Always confident and his legal assistants were very helpful as well (customer service is a must for me). I highly recommend Mr. Manikas and I can assure you that you wouldn't regret it. His knowledge and experience makes this guy one of the best ones out there!

    Attorney of the year! The Real MVP.  What an amazing guy! Promptly on time, fixed my aggressive driving ticket just to a speeding ticket and pricey but worth every penny. I enjoyed him representing me and if I ever need help I know the man to go to. Highly recommended!

  • let's just say I'm glad he was on my side...

    Amazing. You know those movies where the hotshot lawyer lays out the facts and argues the law as if they wrote it. Well this was that in real life. I approached a police officer to ask about my girlfriend who had been pulled over a block away from my parked vehicle. I was then convinced I had to take sobriety test (which I passed), then a pbt (failed that part) and was booked for DWI. Someone I knew suggested a lawyer she had used before, but that lawyer didn't work in Fairfax. He suggested Mr. Manikas. It's one of the best suggestions I ever got. Of course I did my research and came upon reviews like this; however, I was still beyond nervous. As a cleared professional this isn't something I wanted on my record. He was completely honest with me every step of the way and was quick on getting back to me, but until you actually see him do his thing in the court room... let just say I'm glad he was on my side. Anyway he got my case dismissed. Truly an amazing lawyer.

  • Great Lawyer - All Charges Reduced or Dismissed...

    Great Lawyer - All Charges Reduced or Dismissed. Mr. Manikas has represented me on a number of charges over the years. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and well prepared. In each case, Mr. Manikas was able to either get my charge completely dismissed or reduced to a much less serious charge. In January in Fairfax County, Mr. Manikas was able to get my DWI reduced to a non-DWI charge and was able to avoid all jail time and keep the fine very low. He was able to do this even though my blood alcohol level was above the legal limit. On a personal level, Mr. Manikas has always treated me with a lot of respect and has gone out of his way to go the extra mile for me. I have referred several friends to him and they have had the same experience.

  • Couldn't have asked for a better outcome. I hardly ever write reviews, but after the representation that I received from Mr. Manikas, I believe that to say his services warrants positive feedback would be a gross understatement.

    Couldn't have asked for a better outcome.  I hardly ever write reviews, but after the representation that I received from Mr. Manikas, I believe that to say his services warrants positive feedback would be a gross understatement. I was faced with two charges that would have greatly altered my life direction and put a major dent on any future advancements in my life and my career. I was charged with a DWI 2nd offense (carries a mandatory minimum of 10 days in jail and a loss of license for 3 years with restricted driving privileges after 1.5 years) and a Refusal to Blow on a Second Offense (also a criminal charge that carries a hard loss of license for 3 years). Basically, I was facing 6 years of suspended license, two criminal charges on my record, and jail time. The prosecutor wasn't willing to offer a plea deal that was even remotely attractive, which led to my case going to trial. The trial was not only lengthy, but intense as both sides presented their arguments and examinations as well as a video of my stop and arrest. Throughout the process, Mr. Manikas not only displayed a thorough knowledge of the law, but his aggressive yet professional approach to countering not only the prosecutor but the officer as well. In the end, both charges were dismissed and I am able to move on with my life. Hiring a good lawyer may be pricey but it's worth every penny. Not only for the sake of my driving privileges and my freedom, but financially as well. By being found not guilty, I don't have to spend money on high court fines, ASAP classes, or interlock maintenance.
