Divorce Case
Peter and Nicole are a pleasure to speak with. Kind and very Down to Earth. I had the honor of hiring Peter for a difficult divorce issue i was going through. After hearing the issue and my case, Peter assured me no worries ill take care of it and as sure as im sitting here 3 weeks later final decree was issued and no longer married to a difficult person. Thanks to Peter Manaras for his timely responses and professionalism. Would most def use this firm again for any other legal issues that may occur. I have already passed on his card to several friends for consultation and hopefully retaining his services. AWESOMENESS!!!!!

Pete Manaras, Esq.
We hired Pete Manaras, Esq. on a recommendation at a time when help was very much needed in an area in which we had no experience. Their timely, prompt and efficient response was so welcome from our first phone call at a very bad time to the last with a positive outcome. The firm's paralegal, Nicole, could not have been more helpful, pleasant and responsive throughout our ordeal. They helped tremendously during a very scary time for our family with a successful outcome. I cannot say thank you enough.

Extremely helpful and dedicated
Throughout the entire process, Pete was nothing but helpful. He prepared me for everything that was to happen and he always kept me up to date with what was going on. The outcome was what I wanted and I have Pete to thank for that. It was comforting knowing that I could call and speak to his paralegal who knew exactly what was going on in my case at all times. I would highly recommend Pete to anyone needing any type of legal assistance.

Good Man
I've met both Giribaldi & Manaras, they are both very thorough, and punctual. They also have tremendous report with the DA which can't be understated. Office is conveniently located near the Media Courthouse on Olive Street. Do yourself a favor and call them first. Dave from StainBusters

We bought a pig in a poke
In May 2009 Pete Manaras was retained to represent my daughter in a divorce case. We paid him, in advance, the $3,000.00 retainer fee he required. At the initial meeting with Mr. Manaras, he promised to provide energetic and aggessive representation for our daughter. He also promised to be available for inquiries or consultation at all times. There is a record of more than ten written communications to Mr. Manaras between 05/30/2009 and 10/07/2009 which have never been acknowledged by Mr. Manaras. Numerous telephone calls were made to his office during that period of time without a single return phone call. Even the letter of 10/07/2009 which informed him of his termination as our daughter's legal representative was not acknowledged. My letter of 11/30/2010 to Pete Manaras asked for an accounting of how the retainer fee was used on behalf of my daughter's legal representation. No such accounting was offered by Mr. Manaras. His only response to that request was "Do not contact this office again." As I see it, a licensed professional in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania accepted cash payment for services that were never delivered and then refused to even discuss the matter. If there is another reasonable view, I would like to hear it.
