Manuelian is an overall exceptional person to meet. When he came in contact with my case he knew first hand that he was going to get the job done. He gathers as much information as possible to assure that your justice is served. I went on a 4 month run with him in and out of court and each visit was filled with progression that eventually lead to me being no guilty on all charges.

I was investigated for Rape. I had consensual sex with a girl who changed her story about our consent when her father found out she slept with me. I was very worried about getting arrested and searched the internet for a lawyer. I interviewed 7 lawyers and found RJ to be the best player for my team. The other lawyers quoted me much higher fees and weren't as honest with me as RJ was. He tells you the honest truth (he calls "brutal honesty") and makes you feel like he's someone you trust with your life. I did and he got my case dismissed. I listened to him and followed his strategy and he actually did it! I was even surprised how fast he got my case dismissed despite all the horrible allegations made against me.

I think the best way to describe RJ Manuelian is he is one of the passionate lawyers I have ever met. This guy will literally fight for you until death, he does absolutely everything he can for his clients and is a great litigator as well. I would recommend this lawyer to anyone!
