Mike Manning has led a number of ground-breaking cases, locally and nationally. He was recognized by the National Law Journal in its triennial selection of the "100 Most Influential Lawyers in America." For over 25 years, Mike has been considered one of our country’s leading lawyers. In the mid-1980’s, the FDIC selected Manning to head its litigation against New York, mob-related money broker, Mario Renda. In 1989, Manning was lead counsel in MDL-834 – the Lincoln Savings/Charles Keating case. At the time, MDL-834 was the largest commercial litigation in U.S. history. In 2000, Manning obtained an $8.25 million settlement against Joe Arpaio and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, one of the largest wrongful death and civil rights settlements in Arizona history. In early 2006, Manning obtained a $9 million verdict against the MCSO and Maricopa County in another historic wrongful death case. In 2015, Manning had another "Top 10 Verdict." He was lead counsel for the 10K Partnership and obtained $288 million in compensatory damages. That verdict was the largest in Arizona in 2015 according to Arizona Attorney magazine.
