An Introduction To Manchester & Associates

Manchester & Associates was started in 1978 by Robert Bruce Manchester, my father. Before I went to law school, I worked for him. I then went to law school where I completed three years of law school in two and one third years by taking extra classes and going year round. I received my law license in April of 2000. As of April 2016, I have been a criminal defense lawyer for sixteen years. All I do is criminal defense in state and federal courts. I have consulted on cases out of state. A lot of the work that we do in my law firm are high end felony cases such as rape, child sexual assault, sexual assault and drug cases with a lot of drug cases being synthetic drugs like Spice, K2, bath salts, and LSD.

We also regularly handle murder cases, vehicular homicides, vehicular homicides while DUI, aggravated assault, large financial crimes. One financial crime case involved an embezzlement of over $600,000. My firm handles cases all across the state of Pennsylvania.

Furthermore, we routinely handle a large number of DUIs, simple assaults, general theft crimes and drug possession crimes. We concentrate on using science as well as the psychology of decision making in defending our cases, even the non-scientific based cases. We are constantly training, learning, and reading up on the psychology of decision making, which is really crucial because you can’t just know the law.

What matters is the people you are trying to convince understand you. So you have to present things in a way juries understand. That is where they study of the psychology of decision making and psychology of influence comes into play. So not only are we learning the law, keeping up with the law, plus keeping up on the relevant science involved in different types of criminal cases. We are constantly updating our knowledge. I myself go across the country multiple times a year and am a national speaker on defense topics.

That is what sets us apart, just knowing the law and being in court for sixteen years is not enough. You have to have more than that. I constantly attend many courses in relevant forensic science such as testing cocaine, heroin, morphine, synthetic marijuana etc. plus a vast amount of scientific training in the DUI field. I attended over a dozen courses on blood testing across the country. I have also taken a course on DNA. It was a hands-on course taught by Dr. Greg Hampikian in Idaho, Dr. Greg Hampikian is the geneticist that helped get Amanda Knox out of trouble in Italy. I actually tested my own DNA in that course.

Another course I attended was taught by Terence McCarthy. He is known as one of the best cross-examiners in the world and I have gone to his hands on three day practical course for cross-examination twice. We actually cross-examine people and he beats on us until we do it right.
