“In May 2017 I rushed my son to the hospital unknowing the horrible disaster that would come of this Emergency room trip where I took my 8 months old to be seen. All day I wore my firearm on my side like mostly every day I do being a young mom in a town that’s going downhill by criminals that rob and do senseless acts. After I realized the uncomfort of the check-in Nurse I decided to call my son’s father to come to sit with me and son I while I take my gun to my car. I come back in and a woman made a false report because she heard PART of my sentence spoken between me and my son’s father. And police showed up in response to a call of an active shooter. My gun never left my holster, and the report was misleading and I was unarmed when I supposedly made a threat. I was arrested and my son was left behind at the hospital. No legal guardian, no emergency contacts were contacted by hospital staff and I was sitting in jail, confused and missing my kids badly. I was bailed out, thankfully. I went to my sisters where she got on Google and found Brian Manchester. I begged, borrowed and pleaded for money to hire Mr. Manchester which I’m still paying back the man that lent the money to me. No complaints though had my jury trial on Tuesday, May 22nd and during that trial, I witnessed Brian Manchester do a closing statement that showed the jury the truth, and he was very compassionate during the whole trial. He was determined to get the truth out and he did. I’m sitting at home watching my 3-year-old daughter and my now 1 and a half-year-old son sleep and I owe it all to Brian Manchester. Smartest move I made was hiring him. He don’t give up, he knows a lot about the law and our rights. Anyone ever tells you to get a “bulldog attorney” then call Brian Manchester. When he fights for you he really fights for you. I’ll always suggest him to anyone. 5 stats for sure. You don’t understand how long that year and one week was. Now I get to watch my children grow up with me in their lives and see my daughter go to her first day of head start in Sept. Be here for my sons second birthday in Sept, and breath fresh air. I felt scared in the beginning and trapped because one woman made up a false report that could of ruined my life. But with Brian as my attorney I got my life back, My kids got their mommy, and I still got tears of joy knowing that I made the right choice when hiring the best attorney I could have. If you see this brian, bless you! Bless your parents for raising you and bless the college that taught you. You’re an excellent attorney. Be proud. I’m proud of your accomplishments. Without you, my kids would be without a mom and I’d not be breathing fresh air during the day and watching my kids sleep peacefully at night. Thank you! As for anyone going through what I did, please know your rights and please hire Brian Manchester. Don’t plead guilty because they offer a “good deal” and make you feel like there’s no out. Talk to Brian before you do anything.”
