My son had a terrible heroin problem. Like 400$ per day. He was also on state parole for a burglary. Anyway, he got Mancini's name from someone in the jail and said to me that this guy is honest and is not in it for the money. Of course I was sceptical. I have been down the paid lawyer route before. And here is how it works. When you meet them it is all roses. They tell you it is all a big mistake, the cops are lying, they have dinner with DA weekely and the case is going to be dismissed. Then you pay them and the story changes. First they stop returing calls, then they blame someone, then they blame the DA then they blame the Judge, then they want more money, then they plead your son out to 3-6 and say it was a hard case. mancini was totally different. I had to convince HIM to take the case. he actually said I could open the phone book and find someone to 'sell me a fairy tale if I wanted, but he was not that guy" When I went to his office, they were lined up. It seemed like he knew them and genuinly cared about each one.
My son was looking at possibly 15 years.rob got a time served sentence he was only in for 11 months unbelievable results . Never would of imagined this was going to happen , once again thanks robert.
I have to say thank you immensely for all the support my son. You are outstanding at what you do, I would be very happy to put this on your web page!! I will continue to refer you , many times very upset parents come to the meetings and I meet the new comers and I refer you to them and will continue to do so. Have a happy holiday and hope your dinner turned out well, I am so happy our paths have crossed. You are an excellent, compassionate lawyer.
My original counsel was unable to attend my ARD hearing because he had to be in court for another case and Mr. Mancini stepped in and reassured me right away that he would do everything he could to have my desired outcome. Although my first meeting with Mr. Mancini was the morning of my ARD hearing, he treated me with the same respect that I assume he treats all of his clients. He was able to negotiate the terms of my ARD and I was given a reduced probationary period. I would highly recommend Robert Mancini as an attorney because he puts the best interests of his clients at the forefront of his work.
After contacting and speaking to at least three attorneys, we decided to hire Mr. Mancini, who was knowledgable and courteous throughout our initial phone conversation, assuring us that our situation would be relatively easy to handle (an underage drinking charge involving our son). When we first met him, Mr. Mancini instilled great confidence in us and proved to be both understanding and non judgmental. Prior to our court date, Mr. Mancini answered all phone calls and emails, and spoke directly with our son on a number of occasions, providing him with the best information and advice. We were shocked at the outcome of the case: a dismissal. The real kudos come from our son though, who spent the better part of the day after the court appearance asking us how Mr. Mancini did it when not one of his friends had the same outcome (there were five of them charged at the same time). We are all grateful, and our son is appropriately awed offering Mr. Mancini his heartfelt appreciation and thanks. We recommend Rob Mancini without hesitation. He is honest, has integrity and is straight-talking.
Yes, thats right, and this carried a mandatory sentence upstate. Not only did he get them to drop thew state sentence, I was given probation. Probation!! The judge said the guidelin was 6 to 12 months. HE was amazing. The judge seemed to like him, the DA kept quiet and he never once told me he could get me probation. And most importantly, I did NOT snitch. It was a grow, so there was no one to tell on! Hire him if you want honest advice and a real smart lawyer. H e seems to know exactly what is BS, and what is not. For real. Thanks Bob
Rob was recommended to me by my husband's friend,(who happens to be a detective) I can't even begin to explain how wonderful Rob is! He was extremely understanding, compassionate and helped me out and through his hard work and determination I luckily got ARD. I don't want to go into detail about why I got into trouble but I'll say this. It was a big deal. I was very scared and he treated me with respect and genuine concern. I will continue to highly recommend Rob to everyone and anyone who needs an amazing lawyer! Thankyou so much Rob I really appreciate all you did for me.
Mr. Mancini represented my son for a marijuana possession charge and a separate speeding ticket. He was professional, thoughtful and knowledgeable. The best outcomes available, which he outlined for us in the first meeting with my son, have come to be. He worked both with my son and with the courts to get a surprisingly fair, reasonable result. I would highly recommend him. My son felt very comfortable with him and I felt confident with his advice. I also felt his fee was very reasonable.
My 16 year old son was charged with 2 felonies, and even though it was his first offense he was looking at 12-24 months in a secured facility hours away from his family. I’m a single mom who is also raising my grandson, and I didn’t think I would be able to afford a lawyer. I felt defeated. Then I met Mr. Mancini. He was very kind, honest, and knowledgeable. But most of all, he genuinely seemed like he wanted to help my family. Upon hearing of my family’s situation, he offered a very reasonable rate that we could afford. Because of Rob Mancini my son is in a non-secured facility for only 6-9 months and will be eligible for home passes soon. I can’t thank him enough for all he has done! He is a wonderful lawyer and man!
I don't actually have a case with him but he did take the time to return my phone call and speak with me about a situation. He was really honest and down to earth.
