Giles handled our wrongful death lawsuit involving our infant son. His medical expertise was a huge advantage in our case since the evidence and witnesses involved were incredibly specialized. Giles and the firm were not only excellent lawyers but they cared about our case and took a genuine interest in our needs and feelings. He communicated with us on a regular basis and included us promptly with updates and new information. Mostly, Giles was passionate and gave 110% into the case, which put our minds at ease knowing we were in such capable hands and we could trust him.
I have known Giles Harrison Manley for more than 20 yrs. He is attentive to the client's needs, and provides advice and representation with skill, genuine care, and compassion. He has been complimented for his expertise in legal as well as medical practice. His education and training are enhanced by academic work. My personal and professional interactions with him have been positive and have revealed his good character and ethical standards. His record of success demonstrates capable proficiency. I am pleased to offer a recommendation for him.
Giles gave us hope when no other lawyer thought our case was important enough and would bring in enough money. Our children had grand mal seizures after being overdose almost 23 times the normal prescription amount. They were 3 month old twins and were barely 8 lbs. No parent should ever have to go through what my husband and I went through. The Pharmacist who made the error had no acknowledgements, no apologies and no thoughts for our children, she was concerned with her "reputation" not that two children were on life support and we did not know if they were going to be brain dead or even live through the ordeal. When I told my story to the other attorneys they only wanted to know if there was long term damage so the suit could bring more money. I understand that everyone is in the business of making money, I'm in that business as well, although doesn't the pain and suffering of two infants because of someone's carelessness mean anything? Giles and his firm took our case and now we at least feel as though someone listened and acknowledged that this type of mistake and sheer lack of empathy and caring from a healthcare professional is not OK. My husband and I understand that people make mistakes and that things happen, but we would hope that at minimum that healthcare professional would look beyond their selves and care a little bit about the patient. I will never forget the pharmacist's words to me, a mother with two children who were in a coma and on life support, and hopefully now she will never treat another patient the way she treated us. Giles fought for us and for our children and for that we are thankful.
