Custody Case / Family Matters
Doug Manion provided exceptional services throughout my months of working with him. Court and the judicial processes can so incredibly be daunting; he ensured everything was handled smoothly, promptly and explained so professionally. As my case was with child custody, he got me EVERYTHING I was looking for. He made this overwhelming process so much easier for me and my family. He was a pleasure to work with; incredibly personable. Would 10/10 recommend to him to anyone, and have already referred friends and family to him. Thank you Doug!

Excellent Experience involving Reckless Driving Misdeamnor Court Summons
My experience with Attorney Manion was beyond excellent. Today's legal process has become overwhelming, and intricately maze-like. Other attorneys I spoke with about potential representation actually amplified this overwhelming feeling with vague explanations of the court proceedings, and instilled doubt of the unknown in my mind, but Mr. Manion professionally reviewed my options with me in the most professional and respectful manner. He was clear and concise about my options, what we ultimately hoped to achieve as the best case scenario, and of course what to expect of the worst case scenario. On my day to appear in court, Mr. Manion argued on my behalf, which resulted in a surprisingly pleasant and quick visit to the courthouse. There was never a question of whether or not I could rely on Mr. Manion. Overall Mr. Manion is over-representative of the positive attributes a thoughtful attorney should have. I am not an attorney, and know virtually nothing about the legal system, but if I was an attorney I would recommend Doug Manion simply because I know from personal experience that he would give you great service at a fair price. I would 110% recommend him.

I would highly recommend Douglas K. Manion for a Divorce or Separation Case
Attorney Manion represented me in my divorce case. Attorney Manion was always accessible and went out of his way to address any concerns/issues that I had. In addition, Attorney Manion always had my best interests and the best interests of my children in mind. With Attorney Manion as my Attorney, I was represented by a highly skilled, competent and caring lawyer.

Car Accident Property Damage
Attorney Manion was very helpful throughout my case. He informed me of the possible outcomes and the likelihood of each and the steps to take in order to receive a lesser penalty. By following Mr. Manion's advice and direction, I was able to get off with a small fine. I would highly recommend him to anyone involved in a similar situation.

Criminal Defense Case
Mr. Manion was knowledgeable and professional. He not only outlined how to proceed with my case, but kept me updated, and informed of alternative possibilities based on new information. I would highly recommend his services, and would call him again myself if the circumstance arises.

Topnotch Lawyer!
Atty. Manion represented me for two recent real estate transactions --- the sale of my home and the purchase of a new one. Working with him was a very positive experience. He is very knowledgeable, pays attention to detail, responds quickly to calls and emails, cares about his clients, and is very personable. I had full confidence in him and he definitely met all of my expectations. I would not hesitate to use his services in the future. I highly recommend him!!!

Reckless driving charge
My son was charged with reckless driving at a high rate of speed. A first time offender. His case was handled very quickly and efficiently. Everything from legally costs, to possible scenarios in the courtroom were discussed and reviewed...right down to no gum chewing and keep your hands out of your pockets. All of his questions were answered and some were answered before they were even asked. Being a first time offender, he was walked through the accelerated rehabilitation process, how it worked, what was expected from him and the consequences for failing to meet those expectations.

Review for Atty Doug Manion/divorce representation
Atty Manion was a recommendation from another Atty that felt they lacked the specific case knowledge to properly address the issues in my divorce. It was an excellent referral. Atty Manions knowledge of the subject, timeframe, what to expect type of issues, was very comforting going through a very difficult time. I could rely on a quick response to any issues or questions I had, and they were explained in a way that someone like myself, not in the legal field and a rookie when it comes to divorce, could understand. There are/were children involved in my divorce, and that was a very difficult situation in regard to protecting the best interest of the kids, and I believe Atty Manion truly did take this matter to heart, protecting my kids, ensuring they will be safe and free to enjoy a split family life with minimal disruptions. Although everyone knows no Atty is easy on the wallet, if you want competent representation, not a yellow pages special, you have to pay. It hurts, but it could hurt worse in the long run if you are not properly represented. Hopefully I will never require the services of counsel again, but if I should, I will call Atty Manion.
