  • Without a doubt, I know I made the right decision by retaining Mr. Manikas...

    Excellent DUI 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.

  • Great DWI Attorney! Mr. Manikas is an excellent lawyer....

    Great DWI Attorney!  Mr. Manikas is an excellent lawyer. I had never had to work with a lawyer before but after the consultation I knew I could trust him to fight my case. He helped me work through all my possible options. He was very informative on what the outcome of the case could be. I was very pleased with conclusion of my case and would definitely recommend him.

  • Mr. Manikas was always very responsive to every question and kept me very informed while my case was pending. It was very easy to communicate with him and his team.

    Excellent DUI/DWI lawyer.  I had a DWI offense with a car accident involved. The situation was very bad for me because my work visa could be closed. After researching web profiles of almost all DUI/DWI lawyers in this area, I decided to ask Mr. Manikas to work on my case. I thought he was the best expert on DUI/DWI matters in this area because he is a former prosecutor, he received Washington D.C.'s "Top Rated Lawyers" award from ALM/Washington Post in 2012 and he has a lot of publications about DUI/DWI. I think this was one of the best decisions I made in my life. Mr. Manikas was always very responsive to every question and kept me very informed while my case was pending. It was very easy to communicate with him and his team (even for foreigner like me who doesn't speak English very well). He did amazing work during the trial. He was very prepared, focused, and confident. Mr. Manikas made the impossible possible for me. The judge dismissed all charges against me and now I have a second chance (this case could have ruined my IT career in U.S.). I am very satisfied with the excellent results. Mr. Manikas achieved a much better result for my case than I could even expect. I would highly recommend Mr. Manikas to everyone with DUI/DWI case. Thank you, Kyle Manikas.

  • From the initial review I had a very good meeting/feeling with Mr. Manikas and knew he was the guy I needed to handle my case...

    DUI 1st offense case.  I strongly recommend Mr. Manikas. I hired him for my DUI case I was facing in fairfax county. I knew that I could not take this matter lightly as I hold a top secret clearance with a well respected agency. From the initial review I had a very good meeting/feeling with Mr. Manikas and knew he was the guy I needed to handle my case. He was easy to contact and communicate with throughout the whole process. On the court date my butterflies had set back in but I knew I had the right guy on my side. Mr. Manikas argued my case pointing out facts and inconsistencies. We achieved the outcome we were looking for since day one. Not guilty. Thank you again Mr. Manikas I cannot thank you enough.

  • He found every little hole in the prosecution and got me free of a Dui and accident charge...

    Best Lawyer.  Mr. Manikas put me at ease the moment I met him. I was charged with DUI and hit and run. He worked tirelessly on my behalf and got the charges thrown out. I recommend him a million percent. If you have any legal issues contact Mr Manikas you will be happy that you did. As a former prosecutor he understands how the prosecution prepares and presents each case. He found every little hole in the prosecution and got me free of a Dui and accident charge. Thank you so much Mr. Manikas

  • I was completely blown away by his preparation, creativity, and intimate knowledge of the law...

    The Art of Law. Within 10 days of my arrest for D.U.I, I received 63 letters from local lawyers offering their services. A little overwhelmed, I cleared off my dining room table, and laid them all out. After a week of reading each one TWICE, one letter appeared at the top of the pile, and that signaled the shift in my fortune (bad luck to good luck). After calling Mr. Manikas, and meeting with him, I retained his representation. With a ringside seat next to him in the courtroom during trial, I was completely blown away by his preparation, creativity, and intimate knowledge of the law, and I suspect , the Judge was as well. I recommend him with no reservation. I'd be tempted to say "He 'Da Man", but really, the Judge is ''Da Man" (or ''Da Woman"), Mr. Manikas just knows how to speak their language. I think the next time though, I'll call a cab first. It'll be a lot less stressful overall, and a LOT less expensive, than calling Mr. Manikas.

  • The best decision I ever made was hiring Mr. Manikas...

    The best decision I ever made was hiring Mr. Manikas. This was for a DUI and refusal. I spoke with a few lawyers and he was the one that initially gave me the least hope. He was referred to me so I stuck with him. Other attorneys assured me they can win the case but Kyle never does. I had my doubts along the way. You just have to trust that he does his part and is very knowledgeable about the law. He is very professional and has great staff and you are guarantee to come out with the best possible outcome. He will definitely explore all options. He even has other attorneys referencing him in their own cases :-)

  • Great Fairfax County Attorney...

    Great Fairfax County Attorney I Hired Mr. Manikas for a first time DUI offense. After speaking with multiple DUI lawyers, Mr. Manikas made me feel the most confident and at ease with my possible outcomes. Having had a high BAC I was at risk of facing potential jail time along with all the other punishments that come with a DUI charge. Mr. Manikas as well as his assistant Mauricio were very helpful in calming my nerves as well as helping me prepare for what I was to expect in court. At my first court date Mr. Manikas told me to wait in the cafeteria along with my parents while he waited for my name to be called. This was very helpful with not scaring me more hearing other cases. After a long hour of waiting Mr.Manikas came out to tell my parents and I what had been said in the room. He was very respectful and professional in asking me if I wanted to speak in private first before speaking to my parents as well. He informed me of everything the police officer had reported against me, as well as recommended we get a continuance on the case. When I arrived to court on my second court date, Mr. Manikas was already there and asked me and my parents to come into a private room where we discussed who the prosecutor for that day would be along with the judge. He felt confident in my chances, and made my parents as well as myself feel that much more at ease. When the time came Mr. Manikas came and reported back what he had negotiated with the prosecutor. No jail time, as well as having them drop my reckless speeding ticket. I was very pleased with Mr. Manikas' thorough knowledge of the Fairfax County prosecutors and judges. I would highly recommend him to anyone facing charges in Fairfax County.

  • considerable experience with the judges. . . who work within the Fairfax County courts and, very obviously, he is well regarded by them.

    A great choice. Working with very little, Kyle Manikas succeeded in having my DUI charge dismissed. He has a clear sense of the relevant rules and precedents and, in my case, a realistic sense what is possible within their limits. Mr. Manikas has considerable experience with the judges and attorneys who work within the Fairfax County courts and, very obviously, he is well regarded by them. He is a great choice when you need a lawyer.

  • extremely knowledgeable, thorough and very well prepared...

    Mr. Kyle Manikas and his team are extremely knowledgeable, thorough and very well prepared. They helped me every step of the way in my DUI case. It was very overwhelming trying to figure out which lawyer to select, but after reviewing Kyle's background and checking out some of the opinions online, I know I made the right decision! He is very much a go getter and knows the law inside and out. He never stopped fighting for me and for my case. Not only was he able to get my sentence reduced, but he was also able to keep me from doing jail time. I strongly recommend Manikas Law firm.
