Barbara Manes has been associated with the Sanders Law Firm since 1979.

She specializes in all aspects of personal injury, matrimonial, real estate and family law. Ms. Manes is a graduate of the State University of New York at Binghamton and Brooklyn Law School. She is a member of the Nassau County Bar Association and New York State Trial Lawyers Association.

Ms. Manes has excelled in cases involving the negligence of building owners for defective maintenance or inadequate security. Ms. Manes represented an elderly plaintiff who was injured when she walked through a tunnel separating two parking areas in a shopping center, tripped and fell on a speed bump. Through expert testimony from a professional engineer, she was able to demonstrate that a design defect caused the accident. Ms. Manes represented several young boys who were sexually abused by a security guard at their apartment building over a period of months. Ms. Manes ascertained that the guard had a criminal conviction and had been incarcerated for sodomy in his home state previously. Ms. Manes was able to show that the security guard company did not contact the guard’s references which would have raised a red flag about his fitness to be hired.

Ms. Manes continues to represent the firm’s clients in premises liability, inadequate security and general negligence matters.
