We are a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business and have relied on John's expertise on numerous occasions. He is well versed with the law regarding Federal contracts and is always very attentive to our needs. Unlike other attorneys we have worked with in the past, John is always accessible and does not "run up the bill". If you are trying to navigate the Federal Contracting System, John is a great asset. We would recommend him highly.

Mr. Manfredonia has helped me navigate the bureaucratic red-tape of Federal Government contracting on more than one occasion. In each instance, our problems were resolved as quickly and efficiently as is possible when dealing with the Federal Government. I highly recommend his legal services.

I know as a business owner you read a lot of things that overly hype up other businesses or people. Everything I am going to say about John here is true.
I have worked with him for the last several years and I consider him a partner in my success. He has never steered me wrong. He is my Chief legal adviser to my firm. He has been a great influence and has mentored me along the way. His approach to legal issues is knowledge and preparedness. Avoiding the costly fights and battles by making sure you have the business protections in place first. This is where his true value as an adviser has been invaluable to my firm. I have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars by not pursuing issues I had a near zero no chance of winning. When it comes to govt laws rules and regulations you can rely on sound educated advice. So when you automatically think you have a slam dunk case against a govt client don't spend your money right away call John. He has integrity that goes beyond other lawyers I have seen in his profession. You may not like his answer but it will be backed up by facts and experience. To further my point every claim that I have filed against the govt has been successfully settled prior to trial. I would say that's a great track record at least with me. I know everyone has there opinions. This one is mine. I am a graduate of the 8a program and CVE Service Disable Veteran Owned Small Business owner. In my opinion you want a guy like this on your team.

John is an extremely knowledgeable, professional, and personable individual I have had the pleasure to meet at multiple national conferences for veteran business owners. John is well-respected by his peers for his many years of delivering high-quality services in all facets of government contracting law, to include bid protests, size protests, claims, and certifications.
