Veronica Manolio


Veronica is the unusual combination of an aggressive litigator and a kind person. While her legal acumen is solid, Veronica balances her strength with understanding the “big picture” for her clients and always fights for the right outcome.  Sometimes those outcomes are trial victories, but often times Veronica encourages clients to put their personal and/or business outcomes ahead of a “legal” win.

Veronica is a successful trial lawyer while also being an effective, detail-oriented writer — a truly rare blend among litigators.  Opposing lawyers have referred to Veronica as a “daunting opponent.”

With these qualities, Veronica has been nominated by her peers, judges, and members of the community for such honors as:

  • Lifetime Achievement Award as one of America’s Top 100 Attorneys®
  • SuperLawyers® Rising Star for three consecutive years
  • One of Arizona’s Finest Lawyers
  • One of the “TOP 10 under 40” criminal defense lawyers by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys.

Every one of these honors focuses on integrity and reputation in addition to the practice of law. Veronica prides herself on creating an honest, ethical and professional reputation to back up her legal work.
