McManus & Associates, a trusts and estates law firm, was formed in 1991 by John O. McManus to provide the high quality experience of the largest firms coupled with the intimacy and efficiency of a specialized boutique firm. Over 20 years later, McManus & Associates continues to earn its reputation for integrity, intellectual ability, efficiency, and enduring relationships.

Soon after its formation, McManus & Associates was awarded the legal industry’s highest rating “AV” for its legal ability and integrity within the profession. After 10 years of receiving its highest annual rating, Martindale Hubbell awarded McManus & Associates membership into the National Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, reserved only for those attorneys that have consistently achieved the highest rating for capability and integrity.

Intellectual Ability:
Top-tier publications like the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and Forbes regularly feature John McManus’s insights, strategies, and expertise in estate planning. The firm was awarded by AVENUE magazine the title “Legal Elite” for its estate planning and wealth transfer practice in the New York metropolitan area.

McManus & Associates is widely recognized for its representation of the busiest and most demanding individuals in the fields of investment banking, hedge funds, private equity, and the highest levels of academia. In 2011, the firm’s rigorous teamwork approach to efficiency awarded it the “10 Great Entrepreneurial Places to Work” by New York Enterprise Report.

Enduring Relationships:
Many clients seek and enjoy our emphasis on a lifelong relationship with McManus & Associates, as 2011 marks the firm’s 20th anniversary. Longevity and endurance have rich roots at the firm: while John O. McManus has enjoyed 20 years in practice with the firm, his father John B. McManus approaches his 60th anniversary within his own profession. To better focus on protecting these relationships, the firm created the 10-Step Wealth and Family Values Protection Process™, a multi-staged method that begins with the firm’s team ensuring that the client’s wishes and intent are fully integrated into the final product.
