Excellent criminal attorney
Lance Maningo is one of the best lawyers in the state of Nevada for criminal defense. He is very professional and works hard for his clients. I’m forever grateful for all his work he dedicated for my criminal case and would definitely recommend.

Barely had to lift a finger
Lance and the Maningo firm really took care of me. I had a reckless driving charge solely from speeding and Maningo was able to get it down to a parking violation with no demerit points and a $98 fine. Upon initial consultation they completely took care of everything, and really quickly as well. Thanks again Lance!

My experience with the Maningo legal team has been excellent. Lance was able to put together a strategic plan and implemented action immediately. The team was always available to go over any and all of our concerns. Lance knows his craft and definitely went the extra mile for us. Our case was handled with the utmost care and professionalism. I also appreciated working with people that care for you on a personal level instead of just handling you as a case. "Highly recommend."

Lance and his team at Maningo Law are nothing short of exceptional. They were quick to respond to any questions I had and were very reassuring throughout what should’ve been a scary experience. Very happy with the service provided to me!

The Best In The Business!
Wow. Where do I even begin? Lance and his team are absolutely amazing. They are professional, responsive, and truly care about their clients. I’m new to this whole thing, but from the time I hired Lance he made sure to walk me through the process and answered any questions I had along the way. Every time I called (which was a lot) I was able to speak with someone right away. From start to finish Lance and his team have been nothing short of exceptional. I truly cannot recommend them enough! Thank you Maningo Law!

The Real Deal Holyfield
Lance did for me what no other attorney could. I feel blessed to have been referred to him through a friend. My criminal case had been ongoing for the past 7 years with no resolution. Lance was able to put together a strategic plan and implemented action immediately. I got more than the result I had prayed for.

Great attorney! Recommend from a friend for a hit and run case. He was very quick when responding to all the questions I had throughout the case and made himself available at any time of the day. My schedule is very busy but he was able to make this situation pretty effortless for me. He will be the lawyer I turn to in the future and the first person I recommend to friends and family.

THE BEST IN TOWN!!
Lance Maningo is a very professional, compassionate, and knowledgeable attorney. My family and I have hired him for several of our criminal cases. He always goes over and beyond to handle each and everyone of our cases as if we were family to him. He takes the time to sit down and explain every aspect of our case. Lance is a very dedicated and loyal attorney, who is highly respected by Judges, DA’s and the people in the court. We are truly grateful for everything he has done.

There is no doubt that Lance Maningo belongs in the conversation when referring to top attorneys in Clark County. His firm has always been very conscientious, attentive and most importantly professional to any matter that he has handled for me and the many friends and family that I have referred confidently to his firm over the years.

Best in the business
Ive worked with about 5 attorneys/ firms prior to finding Lance. What a breathe of fresh air! Lance and his team are by far the most compassionate, detail-oriented, fair, and throughout in the business. He really takes the time to understand the dynamics rather than jam my situations into predetermined buckets like Ive found at some other firms. I would highly recommend giving Lance a call. Elyse, his assistant is awesome as well!

Was in an accident and really wasn’t looking forward to going thru this process but Lance was informative and caring every step of the way. It was one of the easiest processes I have ever been through and extremely happy with the outcome.

Compassionate and experienced!
Lance Maningo represented me in a DUI case. From the very first meeting, Lance was warm and compassionate. He took a great deal of time to focus on my case. He is an extraordinary attorney and was able to reduce my charge to Reckless Driving. He is extremely knowledgeable and has an impeccable reputation in his field. His one on one attention is unparalleled. This was a first time offence for me, needless to say , I was nervous and afraid. Lance calmed my fears and handed my case so carefully and professionally. I am eternally grateful for Lance and the amazing job he did!
