Brian Manchester, Esq., is simply the best! He is an excellent attorney, and a warm and intelligent man. Brian explains the law AND the science to his clients, listens to all of their concerns, and answers questions in a clear and comprehensive manner. My husband was in a horrific car accident in July, 2017, when he lost consciousness and ran into another car and then into a telephone pole. The accident left him permanently disabled, with a broken neck and brain trauma. We believe he suffered a series of mini-strokes while driving, which had happened on at least one prior occasion. However, since my husband was taking legally-prescribed pain medication at the time, those medications showed up in his blood test following the wreck. As such, he was charged with a drug-related DUI and various other traffic offenses. Instead of assuming, like the District Attorney did, that my husband was incapacitated, Brian Manchester listened to the complete story of what happened. We were able to explain to him that this was a health problem, not a driving-under-the-influence problem. Brian took the time to examine the blood results and then explained them to us. He showed us two things: first, that the level of pain medication in my husband's system was on the lower end of the spectrum, and second, that one of the charges filed against my husband was premised upon a blood metabolite that is not even illegal to have in your system in Pennsylvania. Brian then filed motions with the Court to suppress my husband's blood test results. Since the accident left my husband with multiple physical and mental problems, keeping him out of the prison system was the most important aspect of the entire process for us. We explained to Brian that our biggest concern was that my husband's health was too precarious to withstand incarceration. Due to Brian Manchester's outstanding scientific knowledge and the respect he has earned from years of experience dealing with the Centre County District Attorney's Office, Brian was able to negotiate a plea deal to a lesser charge that would keep my husband out of jail. We feel so blessed to have had an attorney like Brian Manchester, who actually listened to "our side of the story" and could explain the science behind the blood test results to us in terms that anyone could understand. He also made certain to discuss our thoughts and concerns before talking to the District Attorney so that he knew exactly what goals to work towards in plea negotiations. I would recommend Brian Manchester to anybody who needs a great attorney!

Back on 3/3/2016. Our son was pulled over coming home from college for speeding then also a know substance (marijuana). So needless to say he was charged with 4 different offenses. #1 charge DUI or Controlled Substance. He was looking at serious time in jail. This would have been his second DUI. First one was straight alcohol.
So we found BRIAN MANCHESTER:) Heaven sent! He spoke to our son and took the case. Needless to say our son went and received the help he needed and BRIAN won our son case for us. He had no jail time. He did receive probation, but hey I can handle that.
Once again money well spent.

I endorse Brian Manchester for criminal defense cases. I referred a client to him who was under investigation for very serious charges. Brian thoroughly investigated the case and convinced the District Attorney to decline prosecution. I strongly recommend him.

Mr. Manchester is a seasoned DUI attorney. He prides himself on his vast knowledge of DUI defense and he zealously defends his clients. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone who wants an attorney who will challenge all the evidence, every step of the way.
