FOS shareholder Jake Manian has received the Martin Hanson Advocates Prize from the Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers for winning a criminal homicide jury trial in October 2022 on behalf of his defendant client.

Each April, the Association honors attorneys who, during the prior year, prevailed in a criminal homicide case.

The award recognizes the efforts of lawyers who tirelessly work to defend clients during one of the most stressful and vulnerable times in their lives.

Jake secured a unanimous Not Guilty jury verdict for his client following eight days of trial in Waukesha County. An acquittal in a homicide case is a rare and difficult feat, requiring skill, hard work, and dedication.

Congratulations to Jake, whose skill and commitment to the tenets of our justice system we celebrate!
