    I have litigated against Mr. Manasseh as an Assistant District Attorney and been able to watch him as a fellow defense attorney. Mr. Manasseh is head and shoulders above his peers in all areas. He treats his opposing counsel with respect, but still mounts an aggressive and solid defense for his clients at trial. His clients know him and his staff of extremely good lawyers as the "go to" firm for criminal defense matters.
