We are voting for Joe Manuel for chancellor.
We have known Joe for several years, meeting him first at the Hamilton County Pachyderm Club where he served as president. He served during a time when he had to find a new meeting place for our weekly meetings and he guided us through that turmoil to a very satisfactory location that he referred to as “Our House” and that name has stayed.
We have seen Joe preside at the weekly meetings, being sure that all speakers and/or candidates had equal time to express their views.
We have also witnessed his compassion and concern for his clients, especially helping an elderly lady downsize her possessions by taking time to take her antiques to several stores to be purchased for resale.
Joe has strong values and he possesses the temperament to be chancellor along with his knowledge of the law. He has many years experience as a mediator and arbitrator. We trust Joe Manuel to avoid emotional decisions and to apply the law to guide him to the most appropriate outcome.
Join us in voting for Joe Manuel for chancellor.

I wanted to take this opportunity to recommend Joe Manuel for chancellor in Hamilton County. Having been Joe’s opposing counsel in litigation, I have been able to personally observe his abilities, ethics, and experience when practicing law. Based upon my experience litigating with Joe, I have no hesitancy in saying that Joe would make an excellent chancellor. He is well experienced, has practiced law for over 35 years, and will be ready to hit the ground running if elected.
In addition, Joe’s experience and emphasis in his practice on alternative dispute resolution will be beneficial in Chancery Court. Joe has aided both litigants and their counsel in resolving disputes short of time-consuming and expensive litigation. Bringing this focus and experience to the bench will certainly help in decreasing the length and expense of litigation—a result that would be beneficial to all citizens of Hamilton County who find themselves in Chancery Court.
In summary, Joe is the type of experienced lawyer who understands the need to resolve disputes in a fair, impartial, and cost-effective way that allows all citizens access to our courts. That is the type of chancellor we need here in Hamilton County.
