After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in communications from Syracuse University in 1990, Mr. Maniatis received his Juris Doctor degree from Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University and was authorized to practice in the states of New York in 1996 and New Jersey. After his admission to the bar, Mr. Maniatis went to work for the New York County Legal Aid Society and then served as an attorney at two personal injury firms before founding his firm.
