Extremely knowledgeable and would recommend Mr. Juarez! He was able to walk me through my options and if anything in the future is needed, I will be reaching out again. Do not hesitate to reach out because he could have a tremendous impact with your case where he will be able to put you in the best financial spot possible!

Lease questions
I called with specific questions about a dispute I was having with my landlord over terminating my lease early. Mr Juarez was pleasant and extremely helpful with advice over the phone. I was even given the specific civil code to look up California’s legislation on the issue. Civil code 1951.
Response from Manuel Juarez July 29, 2020
I am getting many calls regarding this issue and I fell that if I provide the pertinent California Code regarding warranty of habitability issues, my future customers will be able to get a better service as they will be able to see what I can do for them. Thank you Tara, it was my pleasure to ask all your questions.

International experience...
There are not many lawyers outside big firms (that come with big expenses) you can find that can take a complex, international case in USA to handle. And eventually, to make it work! Manuel is one of those rare diamonds one should have in his/her list for such cases. In my process, he was there to build the path for his client to get things in order. Even in a hurry situation like that was. Well, no one likes to hurry when you need to make the things right and there's a lot on a table. This means, one need to really be up to the speed with all the details of the process in order to get things done properly and to get success in the case. He had that know-how. He did kept the process in his hands. And yes, we did got all sorted out. Good man!

Response from Manuel Juarez January 31, 2017
It was my great pleasure to help this family of a single hard working father and his two high school children. Many times, I am amazed that I get compensated for doing something that I enjoy. I believe that I have made friends with the entire family and I keep track of the two young men as they have already finished high school and are starting their new lives.

Believe in Manuel!
Like any good lawyer, it takes patience and a lot of negotiation to work out deals. I worked with this man on an injury case after having suffered an accident in 10/2012 which left my arms with joint dislocation and nerve damage. Thanks to his medical affiliates and his hard work, I am back to my old safe and able to live life with peace in mind.

Mr. Juarez provided good information and followed up expediciously. Had his practice been closer to my area I would have hired him.
Posted by Elaine Ribeiro | June 13, 2013
Mr. Juarez is an incredible man. He went above and beyond to help us when it was almost too late. We are in our home tonight when we were on the brink of being homeless. Mr. Juarez met with us working on our case till the early morning. Having to commute to the East Bay to file papers at the court house by 8am. He was instrumental and has passion for his clients. His knowledge of the law is phenomenal. His expertise is immeasurable. We are very fortunate to have Mr. Juarez represent us. I will recommend him to ALL my friends and family.

I was about to lose my house and my co worker referred me to Atty. Juarez so I went to see him immediately. He entertained me right away and advised me what to do. With all his help, knowledge and expertise he helped me. He even went with my husband to deal with the Chase Bank representatives. He was really good and I am very lucky to have known him and used his services.

The People's Lawyer
I was recomemended to Manny by my banker. Manny took good care of my case. He fought for me, a "little guy"! My case was a small case but he treated it as if it were a million dollar case.

Bancarrotas y Modificaciones
Tuve una excelente experiencia con el abogado Manuel Juarez en dos diferentes casos que me ayudo a resolver muy favorablemente para mi. Primero peleo por mi un caso de bancarrota capitulo 7 en el cual fui completamente absuelto y liberado de las deudas por las cuales hice la bancarrota, esto a pesar de que mi caso fue bastante complicado, el dictamen de discharged fue dado en Junio del 2009. Posteriormente me ayudo a tramitar la modificacion de mi casa, logrando obtener no tan solo la reduccion de mis pagos, de mi interes sino tambien de la deuda,el banco con el que negocio fue Wachovia, y supe por parte de alguna de las personas con las que se negocio, que la mi fue una de las primeras modificaciones otorgadas. Recomiendo ampliamente al Lic. Juarezpara cualquiera de estos dos casos.
