Words from former clients & family members

"Kathy Manley is an exceptional lawyer. My case was complicated and long and the consequences were severe.  Her case work was amazing. She successfully battled the entire DA's office as they tried to stonewall her at every move, uncovering hidden evidence and false testimony.  The appeal she wrote got my case overturned. She is a shark; don't let her mild manor fool you”  - K.P. Albany, NY case from 2010-2014

“Focused, determined, and dedicated to achieving the best results are only a few of the words to describe my Attorney Kathy Manley's professionalism. Kathy has an excellent knowledge of the law, and believes in meticulous preparation of her cases, which is evident when you discuss matters with her. When interacting or working with her, the timeliness of her responses is unparalleled. Her work product and attention to detail is outstanding. I have been extremely pleased with the service provided and results obtained.”     - J.Edwards Jr.

“We hired Kathy Manley to prepare an Article 78 filing on behalf of our son against the New York Parole Board.  She wrote such an excellent brief that the court ordered a de novo hearing and our son was released. Ms. Manley is a seasoned professional and was easily reachable by phone and email.  She was helpful, polite and respectful of our needs at all times.  She is a kind person and a pleasure to work with.  Her rates are reasonable.  If it weren’t for Ms. Manley, our son would still be in prison.  We are very grateful to her and highly recommend her.” - Chris Eckardt and Saul Rigberg
