I had the pleasure of working with Bruce Manos on a challenging product liabilty case. He exhibited excellent analytical, research, and litigation skills, such that we were able to reach an excellent result for our respective clients. He was thorough, well-prepared, professional, and well-spoken, which earned him the respect of all the attorneys working on the case. I would highly recommend Mr. Manos.
