  1. Car accident
    35%
    Someone's bad driving can ruin a life! The law provides that full and fair compensation be provided when a person suffers harms and losses due to another's negligence. The insurance company is not on your side and will not look out for your best interest. You should consult with an experienced attorney to be sure that your rights are protected and that you are compensated to the full extent of the law.

  2. Personal injury
    25%
    If you are like many personal injury victims, you may be unsure of the civil litigation process and whether it is the best fit for you and your family moving forward. At the Law Office of Manning & Zimmerman, PLLC we understand the hesitation many people feel about filing a lawsuit and are here to help answer your questions and explain the process from start to finish.

    38 years

  3. Workers compensation
    25%
    NH workers' compensation law provides four types of benefits. First, your related medical treatment is covered 100%. Second, your wages will be replaced (at 60% of your average weekly wage) while you are disabled. Third, if you suffer a permanent injury you will be compensated after a medical examination. Fourth, if you can not return back to your prior work, you may be entitled to vocational rehabilitation service. You should speak to an experienced attorney after any significant injury.

  4. Wrongful death
    10%
    In general, immediate family members or the administrator of the decedent’s estate may sue on behalf of the deceased party by claiming negligence or strict liability against the responsible party. The theory behind wrongful death actions is to ensure a responsible party is not alleviated from liability merely because the victim passed away.

    38 years

  5. Nursing home abuse and neglect
    5%
    People in nursing home deserve the same treatment we all expect from our medical care providers. If you or a loved one is not getting proper care, contact an experienced attorney. This may improve the care of your loved one and the care of others in the home.

When times get hard count on her to be there to help
As everyone knows dealing with an injury is no fun and is hard times recovering with the physical and mental battle. Insurance companies will deny you and lie just to save money and waste your time and make you jump threw as many hoops as possible till the end. When i had no help i found it with mrs.manning law firm the took my case guided me through the process this women is out to help you. Your time ability to do things is only valued to you not the Insurance Company they do not care about you being in the right only that you are wrong in there book mrs.manning helped prove them wrong and that they must act and take responsibility for my injuries i could of not of done this with out her by my side fighting for me and others as she has done for 30 yrs. I would refer this woman a hundred times over cause shes not only the nicest but can be mean and not a push over When it comes to hearings and the court system she knows what it takes to be good law firm persistence and practice... And that what what i got 5 stars all around to her and the lady's in the office.

Great lawyer and a better person
Maureen supported me through an 8 year case not only as a top notch and committed lawyer, but also as a confidant and friend. Over the time of my case Maureen's attention to detail and passion were second to none. What helped was that she was someone I enjoyed working with and genuinely cares about her clients quality of life.

THE BEST LAWYER
MAUREEN HAS HELPED ME IN EVERY ASPECT OF MY LIFE SINCE MY ACCIDENT. SHE IS TRULY A PERSON WHO CARES FOR HER CLIENTS. I'M NOT SURE WHERE I WOULD BE AT THIS POINT WITHOUT HER. FROM THE START SHE HAS BEEN MY ADVOCATE AND CONTINUES TO DO SO, BUT SHE ALSO HAS MADE SURE THAT I PERSONALLY AM DOING WELL AND CHECKS IN REGULARLY JUST TO SEE HOW I'M DOING. SOMETHING THAT THE LEGAL WORLD COULD SHOULD BE PROUD OF. I CONSIDER MAUREEN AND HER OFFICE TO BE FRIENDS AND WOULD GLADLY RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE IN NEED OF LEGAL HELP.

Grateful
I feel very lucky to have had Maureen represent me in my workers compensation case. Maureen handled my case very diligently and methodically, proving to me that she is without-a-doubt seasoned in her craft. Throughout the entire case she made me feel confident that it would end with a positive result, which made the entire process so much easier. Maureen was always easy to get in touch with and prompt in reaching out to me whenever there were additional updates or necessary questions regarding my case. All in all, I was very happy with the end result, and I would highly recommend Maureen to any and all who may be in need of her services. She is truly a benefit to her clients and community.

The fight of my life!
It has been one heck of a tough journey and thanks to attorney Manning I have successfully prevailed on round one! She has kept me informed every step of the way and has also aided in preparing me for what was to come during this challenging situation. I am about to have to face an appeal process since I was successful the first time around but I feel confident that Maureen will see me through to victory once again. It has been an extremely emotional and difficult time in my life not only because I am physically never going to be able to do the job I have loved for 18 years but essentially because my employer has not seen how much I gave to be the employee I have always striven to be. Maureen has listened to all of my worries and concerns and has taken the medical information provided to help get the justice that I deserve!

Professionalism, Thorough
I can honestly say I am so pleased with Maureen's sense of compassion aside from her great ability to "fight the fight". She has always been very informative, up front and will go the extra mile to defend her clients. Maureen has represented me on 3 cases and done a fantastic job. One of which was a little out of her realm of practice, but she still was steadfast and willing to help me, guide me and my case prevailed. I could not ask for a better person to represent my interests in a more professional heartfelt mannerr. Thanks Maureen

Exceptional Lawyer, talented & knowledgeable!
I went to Maureen Manning through the recommendation of a friend after checking out several other firms that didn't feel right to me. I was very happy at the energy she showed for my case. Maureen devoted much time and effort and successfully brought my case to a favorable conclusion. I'd highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for the services of a lawyer.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I met Maureen as both a classmate and an instructor in a national high level trial strategy training program. Her passion for the practice of law is matched with her zeal for her clients. I've enjoyed our collaboration as we both build better infrastructures in our firms so that we bring our "A" game to the table every time. Appreciate all the "school of hard knocks" lessons that I'd rather spare myself learning the hard way. A true credit to the profession."
