  • Kyle worked with the Prosecutor's office to have the case dismissed...

    My son was arrested for having a small amount of marijuana is his car. Kyle worked with the Prosecutor's office to have the case dismissed citing my son's community service, grades, 1st offense, etc. He advised my son on what to do from the initial hearing to the final dismissal of the case. Not only did he get the case dismissed, more importantly my son learned a valuable lesson that sunk in by listening to Kyle's advice.

  • 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.

  • Case Not Prosecuted. Best lawyer in Fairfax. Criminal charges should never be taken lightly, and Mr. Manikas is worth the expense. He produces the best results.

    Case Not Prosecuted.  Best lawyer in Fairfax. Criminal charges should never be taken lightly, and Mr. Manikas is worth the expense. He produces the best results. For the past several months I have been constantly anxious about by impending court date. Mr. Manikas was able to convince the police officer and the prosecutor to not pursue charges against me. I was in and out of court faster than anyone. Do everything Mr. Manikas recommends before court, and he will do the rest.

  • "I have nothing but superlatives for Kyle Manikas..."

    I have nothing but superlatives for Kyle Manikas. He thoroughly researched my son's case and developed a sound strategy on that basis. Of course, a crowded court calendar forced a change of courtrooms and a consequent change in strategy. The resulting continuance and an unrelated event created the need for further research. As a former prosecutor, he was cognizant of the likely stance of the county attorney [prosecutor] on the new trial date and had all the documents prepared for a conditional dismissal. He accomplished the best possible result for my son while being positive and reassuring the entire time, despite all the complications. He did all this for the promised flat fee. He took and returned calls all hours at his earliest opportunity. He was polite, pleasant and professional throughout the process. I highly recommend him.

  • "Kyle Manikas is a true professional when it comes to the law..."

    Kyle Manikas is a true professional when it comes to the law. His vast knowledge of the law as a former prosecutor and as a defense attorney was absolutely critical in resolving my legal problems. Mr. Manikas immediately explained to me how he would deal with and handle my case. He was quick to return my phone calls, meet up with me and answer any questions or concerns I had. I highly recommend Mr. Manikas to anyone who seeks representation for a legal matter. His professionalism and expertise with regards to the law are unparalleled.
