When I first met with Brian Manchester, he took the time to sit down and review my case with me. Brian outlined points in my case which he found particularly interesting. He explained to me why he was such an asset to have in my corner, that he was familiar with the relevant science, felt passionate to see everyone is afforded a strong defense, and assured me that he would go to battle for me.
Everything Brian said to me at this initial meeting, came to fruition before my case was ultimately dismissed. The points he found interesting, he turned into issues in the case. The science he explained he was familiar with, became successful arguments for evidentiary exclusion. His passion to make sure I was afforded the best representation available became reality. There were many times during the course of my litigation where I was worried, and stressed. Brian was able to keep me focused and was a source of direction and inspiration during the process.
At no times was I promised or guaranteed anything. Brian did not fill me with unrealistic expectations. Rather he simply articulated the points he thought could be most beneficial to us, then through the filing of motions, turned those points into the keystones of my defense.
I would recommend Brian Manchester to anyone facing criminal charges. If you were like me, with much to lose, then you need the best in your corner. Brian is a master of his craft. He is a true professional. I intend to never be in such a terrifying position again, but if I am, Brian Manchester will be the first person I call.

Mr. Manchester was able to get my license suspension reduced from 60 days to 30. I would recommend them to any of my friends/family.

Brain was very knowledgeable with the DUI case. He knew the background of the hospital that the blood test was given. Brian also knows the laws that have to do with the Feild Sobriety Test. He also knew laws that the police officers on my case didnt know.

Mr. Manchester knows his DUI Deffence. I got myself a 2nd DUI offence with a BAC of .026. I was looking at 6 months to 2 years in jail. I was sentenced yesterday to 3 months with a court ordered furlough (Monday-Saturday) in order to maintain my employment! Thanks Brian!!

Brian is very knowledgable and aggressive attorney, especially with DUI cases. He has assisted me with very complex legal arguments and he is very persuasive.

Brian made me feel better about my situation the first time I spoke with him. He was VERY knowledgeable. And it was that knowledge that got my case dismissed. He didn't just take my money and send me through the judicial motions. He worked for me and my best interests.

My pos. of marijuana paraphernalia charge that I was wrongfully given was dropped after my first visit to court. I had to wait a few months just because the district attorney was procrastinating with dropping the case although. Either way Brian is a good attorney and did an excellent job fighting my case and helping me out in the long run.

I was pulled over and charged with a DUI at the highest level and knew I would need to hire a good attorney to help with my case. I called and spoke to a whole list of attorneys and Mr. Manchester was the only one who stood out above the rest.
Mr. Manchester being one of the top trained DUI attorneys in the state, blew me away with all his profound knowledge, explaining all the Scientifics in detail beyond what I could perceive. In the courtroom his knowledge overpowered the entire court, even far beyond the expert witness. My highlight of the trail was when Brian degraded the arresting officer by having a greater knowledge and understanding of his job and duties than the officer himself.
Brian Manchester is an aggressive attorney who is very thorough and will do everything in his ability to win your case. Thanks Brian for everything you have done for me, I appreciate it!

I work as a consultant to lawyers throughout the United States providing them with information concerning drug testing in their clients and behavioral effects which the drugs found may or may not have in the case at hand. This provides me with a perspective usually not seen by the person who hires the lawyer to defend them. Most lawyers I work with are competent with matters of the law but many have not educated themselves with the scientific and medical principles required to mount the best possible defense in a given case that involves complex scientific concepts. Mr. Manchester has sought out and obtained additional training in the scientific and medical principles required in effective DUI defense so that he can provide that extra bonus to his clients. In consults I have had with him, I have observed a hard-working, if not compulsive, lawyer who strives to make certain that no stone has been left unturned to aid his client.
