I met with him for about 15 minutes, wrote him a check for $4,000 and never talked to him again. He didn't show up in court. When I went to talk to him about not showing up, his secretary told me that he was at the courthouse. Later, I got another bill for $35.00 for a supposed telephone interview. When I asked to see the results of that interview, his secretary went into a backroom at his office, came back, and told me he said that nothing important came from it so there were no notes!
I wonder if this review will disappear....
I wish there were some way to give him 0 stars.... I recommend one stays as far away from him as possible when needing an attorney.

My DUI was 2,300, Mannys service's to try to reduce charges 4 grand. I came to this site and saw so many good reviews from this guy. I was like its pricy but hes gotta be the one! This was my first offense so I really wanted and needed to be walked through every part of the process, and gosh I was paying so that things could be a little easier for me! I would call and inquire about my case to the receptionist and he would say he knew nothing about it and I would speak to Manny who would often use sarcasm about how aggravating I was, insinuating I was taking up his time but was never refered to a paralegal or anyone to do the explaining he didnt want to do. Eventually I had to leave and he did not even pick up my calls, or would say to call in a month and further contact him on email. Attempting a reduction of charges, the case prolonged for over 4 months, he did represent me in court so I didnt have to go but kept vital information from me that would have helped to know like to tell me to pay the fine right away. Instead of that I was coldly forwarded to a number and my case minutes when it was finally over to deal with no reduction of charges whatsoever but a bunch of late fees on top. If I know anything about how to deal with tickets now it is for how much I lost going to this guy and reading law online on my own. Really, trust your gut feeling asnd not these reviews.

Manny represented me for a DUI case. My trail was drug out over 4 hearings. I never had to take time off of work. Since that time I have called for legal advice which proved to be very helpful. I have recommended Manny to several people and will continue to do so

Manny was discreet, extremely knowledgeable, and genuinely concerned about my well being and livelihood. He has a great attentive staff, and I could not have been more pleased with the outcome of my case. Better than I could have hoped for! Manny is just the best. I can't thank him enough for his efficiency, timeliness, and overall kindness and understanding!

Manny Daskal is a very genuine, honest, and knowledgeable lawyer. The most amazing quality about Manny is his ability to listen and put you at ease. He is very easy to talk to, thoroughly knows the law, and he takes the time to explain things to you. He was a beacon of light during an extremely stressful and scary process. He worked diligently on our case and we won, a feat I am not sure another lawyer could have accomplished. Manny gives you the deal straight up and we never felt like we were in the dark or didn't know what was going on. He was very attentive and always replied quickly to our phone calls or emails. He is highly respected in Humboldt and there is a reason why, he knows the law and he wins cases. I am so thankful to have had Manny as a lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone that asked. Besides being an amazing lawyer, he is a great friend to have by your side during those longs hours of waiting that always happen around a case, he can make you laugh or smile when you need it the most.
