Best Firm ever
I have dealt with quite a few lawyers and i have to say that the Mannor Law Firm has been the best. They tell you there plan of action and follow thru with it. They are the first attorneys I have dealt with that did what they said they would do. And would make sure you were comfortable with all the decisions that were made. Highly recommend this company! great people to work with.

Extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and ethical. A rare and trusted find in these modern times.
Mr. Mannor and his team handled all of my parents elder care, veteran and estate planning affairs in a most professional and confidential manner. They worked diligently and promptly to assist my mother with legal and nursing home matters that were complicated and stressful for the family to handle. We provided all necessary paperwork in a timely fashion, which will expedite any legal process. My siblings and I would all agree, a rare thing, that without Bob Mannor and his team we would have faced unimaginable hardship and undue heartache as we experienced the decline of my Dad. He literally saved our family. I can confidently and without reservation recommend this fine attorney for any estate, veteran and elder care needs. He knows his stuff and can be trusted. My husband and I are currently in the process of preparing our own estate plan with Mannor Law, without hesitation.

Amazing law group and team members
This entire law group has the process of estate planning, including wills, down to a science. With their experience, they had the answers to all of my questions and made the process very easy. From the office, Kat assembled my funding table and clarified how I should go about changing ownership on my various accounts to my new trust, so they can avoid probate and make my estate easier to deal with for my trustees.

Family Trust &Medicaid
Bob Mannor and his very competent staff prepared our family trust and prepared a submission for Medicaid for my wife. Medicaid was finally approved and she is being well cared for in a nursing home. We placed our trust in the Mannor Law firm and we're extremely with the very personal attention we were given. I would have no reservations in recommending them to anyone.

Completely Satisfied
I have been a client of Robert Mannor for six years; he first reviewed my trust (prepared by a different lawyer). He made suggestions for changes and thoroughly explained why he recommended the changes. Additionally, he explained the laws pertaining to elder care facilities and contracts. I find him to be knowledgeable and diligent in his efforts on my behalf, answering my questions so I understand the implications of my choices. Should a document need updating, that is done during in my appointment time. The Mannor Law Group staff is always friendly, courteous and helpful.
