Non-judgmental representation that uses everything she’s got!
If I was able to put 10 stars I would, I previously had another lawyer to represent me prior to this case and with Cindy Manning it was like light and day. She gave me the advice that would best help me during my case and kept on top of me to make sure everything was completed prior to court. I ended up getting a sweet deal that I was not expecting. It was clear she was extremely well known in the court system and it seemed to work in our favor in the end. God forbid I ever get any a situation like that again but if I did, I’d know who my first call would be. Thank you Cindy! Always will be grateful!

Fights aggressively for you
Our son was wrongfully arrested for protecting our family on our property. The police got all the facts wrong and were not listening to reason or the evidence. We wanted a good attorney and money was not a big issue for us. We searched for over a week interviewing several lawyers. When we spoke with Cindy Manning at Manning & Peace, we knew she was the one. Also surprising is how affordable her services are. She knows the temperament of the prosecutors and judges and provided good counsel to us. She was a bulldog in the courtroom not giving one inch. She is very passionate about making sure her clients gets the best defense possible. That came through very clear in court and sometimes was a little scary to be honest. I hope my family never needs the services of a defense attorney, but if we do, you can be for sure it will be Manning & Peace!

Manning Legal Group is wonderful!
A couple of stupid mistakes got me into trouble but one great decision - choosing Cindy - straightened it all out. She came highly recommended by a few of my most respected friends and they were right. Cindy, Holly and all of the staff were caring, responsive, affordable and thorough!

Wonderful Lawyer God Sent
I was arrested in 2014 for 15 charges and the only letter that came to my house was Cindy's at Manning Legal Group. She wanted to represent me. I had never been in trouble before so I shopped around for some other lawyers. Every other lawyer I called was either too expensive or overwhelmed me saying they don't think I'll win my case. I needed someone to understand what really happened and how my character does not reflect the manner of the alleged charges against me. I called Cindy in April of 2014 and she gave me a very reasonable price. I told Cindy that I'd like to get back with her. It was all so overwhelming that I didn't call her back until July of 2016 when I received a letter to appear in court. Cindy still had my file and she even asked me what did we negotiate in retainer fees. I told her and she kept that same fee from 2 years ago. Which was extremely reasonable. Cindy and her assistant Holly were so patient with me. They were always available to talk if I ever had questions. They sympathized with my story and because they knew God is a big part of my life they often told me they would be praying with me. What I appreciate most is that they made my experience personal. When I cried they were there to assure me of all the things going in my favor, when I wasn't prepared to testify in court they stood right next to me. It was a long 8 months of going back and forth to court. When I wanted it to be over and settled they encouraged me that their strategy would be worth the wait of a favorable outcome. Cindy and Holly never judged me and presented my character and story to the prosecutor in the most professional and genuine way possible. In January of 2017 after Cindy sat and negotiated and all 14 out of 15 charges were dismissed. I received First Offender a really low fine and probation. The judge even told Cindy if I completed a year or two of my probation he would drop even the one charge and my record will be clear of everything. What I was facing would have been far worse and I am so thankful to God for bringing Cindy and Holly of Manning Legal Group into my life and having them advocate and fight for me. I will be calling them again in a year to go up before the judge again. They were truly God sent.

Three suspensions on my license for one arrest!!!
In 2012 I went to prison for various drug charges. Released over three years later and trying to rebuild my life I could not obtain a drivers license because it was suspended three times. I called one lawyer after another and no one would help me because it was a closed case: past disposition. One lawyer gave me another lawyers name. I was referred to another lawyer over and over. I called Cindy and we had a phone consultation. She agreed to take my case and we set a price. Which by the way was very reasonable. I expected to wait several weeks but I was in court within two weeks. I didn't have to go before the judge. Just sat and waited while Cindy and her staff handled everything. I went in thinking the best I could hope for was a hardship permit to go to work and school but Cindy managed to get my license fully reinstated with no restrictions. I was very surprised. It was under a new law passed last year that she was able to get them reinstated. I am so pleased with Cindy and her staff being knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. Should the need ever arise I wouldn't hire anyone except Cindy Manning.

Satisfied & Grateful
We are very grateful for Cindy. My boyfriend got arrested because the lying cop said he ran the stop sign in our sub-division. Well we hired Cindy's firm, she pulled the tape and of course the cop lied. We waited 6 months but the case was DISMISSED! We are happy and grateful! Than you Cindy for a job well done. S/N: Holly and Carly are also gems. Very professional ladies....

What a GREAT Wealth of Knowlege
I am so grateful for Cindy for all she has done to help my son with his legal issues. She gave us excellent advice, he listened to what she had to say and afterwards said she was easy to speak with and did not judge his error. Cindy also gave him hope that all was not lost; just another speed bump in life he had to over come. I would highly recommend Cindy and her staff.

"She Won't Leave You Hanging"
"I'm very impressed with Ms. Manning overall, particularly her willingness to make herself available whenever the need arises. Just prior to her leaving on vacation she had arranged for my son's release from jail but due to some processing conflicts at the jail his release was stalled. By 6pm that evening we had lost all hope that my son would be released that night and we'd probably have to wait until morning. I had called Ms. Manning and left a message advising her of the status, then after making one last call to the jail about 8PM we were told that Ms. Manning had called them (from Vegas), the problem had been resolved, and we could come pick up my son. Ms. Manning is never more than a phone call away!

Spectacular service and performance
Cindy is truly a gifted attorney. She did exactly what she said when she said she would. Cindy has a great way with people and had a very professional demeanor. She kept me informed of progress and even refunded some of my retainer when the work didn't take as much time as she thought!!!! Definately not the norm!!!! Highly recommend!!

Would definitely use her again
Cindy Manning helped me from day one and all my charges were dismissed because she believed in me as I did in her. I couldn't thank her enough!

All-around wonderful to work with
This was a property dispute. Cindy responded quickly and clearly. We set up a time that was convenient for me. Her preparation was thorough (I had sent her a lot of information ahead of time). Her knowledge base was extremely impressive and saved us a ton of stress and money. Beyond her expertise which was indisputable, her demeanor was even better. She was supportive and open-minded. She made it clear that I should feel comfortable with the process at all points, and she kept that promise throughout.

Will work diligently on your behalf
Cindy Manning represented me this past year on several criminal charges. The circumstances were stack against my favor, but Cindy went above and beyond to try to swing the pendulum in the other direction. She was sensitive to my needs and timely responded candidly and thoroughly to my questions and concerns. Most importantly she took action when possible in an attempt to present a fair argument on my behalf. I would certainly recommend Cindy Manning.
