Leandra R -- International Opera Singer
"Dr. Mann, as part of a complicated legal case I was involved in, solved an almost impossible international investigation related to cross-border cyber stalking. As an opera singer making international stage and television appearances, I attracted the attention of a tech-savvy internet stalker. Numerous authorities told me that it was an unsolvable case due to a lack of applicable international laws or treaties. After years of the cyber-stalker being in my life, I met and hired Mr. Mann who used his legal knowledge and investigative abilities to find a solution. He worked directly with the Singapore Police Force over a number of years to solve this mystery and win my case, sending them scrupulous details of a decade worth of data. The case made international news including articles in The Economist, CBS News, and Straits Times. Further, the Ministry of Law Singapore and the Council of International Investigators recognized the contributions in the field of winning such an important and unprecedented case. Dr. Mann is dedicated, genuine, and determined to win any project he is involved in."
Ben T, Esq. -- Attorney
"Based on the more than 2 decades I have known Monroe, I can say he is a person of the highest character, genuinely interested in other people, and willing to help a friend or stranger in need. It is clear to me, from the work Monroe has undertaken over the years, that he puts himself in the service of others, whether helping them advance their careers, tackle legal problems they face, or embark on a journey of self improvement. The wide range of people he has helped is evidence of his strong standing in the community, one that values his experience and seeks out his expertise. Monroe's honesty and integrity are without flaw, and his moral compass cannot be questioned."
