Highly Recommend
My family and I were in a horrible car accident and didn’t have a clue where to begin. Ethan was recommended to us and we are so grateful. He lead us through a total mess with his paralegal Vanessa and carried the load for us. Handled every thing for us and kept us in the loop the whole time. We would not know what we would have done with them. Highly recommend!!!!

Highly Recommmended
Ethan is a great lawyer who not only has the knowledge to get the results we were looking for but also the compassion to let us know that he genuinely cares about what my family was going through during our difficult time. Ethan always kept our family in the loop about every detail concerning our case. No matter what situation you may find yourself in, I would highly recommend Ethan Manning as the attorney that will go that extra mile for you and your loved ones.

Ethan Manning
Ethan was a fantastic lawyer throughout my injury claim process. Extremely communicative especially considering the trouble the insurance companies were giving him and the delay on their ends. He handled two cases simultaneously, one larger and one smaller and displayed the same professionalism and consideration on both. I would highly recommend Ethan for anyone and keep a copy of his card on me at all times.

Very Professional, easy to talk to...
I recently hired for hit and run accident that I was in. I was not aware that my insurance policy covered me for pedestrian hit run until a friend informed me. So I did what anyone else would do and I open the phone book and Started calling around. Mr Mannings office was the only one available to get me in the same day. I was very eager to get something done due to the fact of my financial situation and me being a server. He gave me the estimate of two weeks to file my claim and now we are going into the 4th week. I do atribute that to some of the problems that he is running into with my case and Progressives extremly poor claim resolution. Mr. Manning was extremely well with infprming me every step of the way, and not wit snail mail but email or text and almost always responded within 10 minutes, I must say that I was impressed with his professionalism and how he handles he job, I definatly appreciated the fact that he felt my pain and adjusted his aggressiveness toward Progressive, even to the point that the claims adjuster got sick of us contacting her to tell her to get it done. Then once my claim went thru he has a check to me by the next business day. I would definitely recommend him.
