Rabal is an excellent criminal defense attorney and trial lawyer. He successfully defended a member of my family against multiple unfair felony charges in a complicated case that took several days to try. Mr. Rabal is an incredibly hard worker. He knows the law and prepares meticulously. He made strategic use of legal tools that other lawyers we had consulted never mentioned were available. He is a masterful litigator in the courtroom. In this case, he achieved a remarkably positive outcome, even earning compliments from the judge for his outstanding work. Mr. Manikas also was a skillful negotiator on other unrelated charges. In addition, Brian was a wise, calming advisor during very stressful times. From the first time we talked with him, he gave us hope. He was always prompt in returning phone calls and kept us well-informed of his progress and thinking. There was never any doubt that he honestly cared about his client and about providing the best possible legal representation that he could. He proved himself to be trustworthy and effective. I have the highest regard for Mr. Manikas and absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs legal help. We couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer.
