Debra Manitzas Trueman


HR Consultant/Unemployment Claims Specialist

Debra Manitzas Trueman is President of Manitzas Trueman Consulting Services, Inc. She has more than three decades of experience in helping employers with their HR issues. Debra started out as a Labor and Employment Paralegal before establishing Manitzas Trueman Consulting Services in 2014. She has long-time business relationships with many of her clients, some of whom she has worked with for 10 to 20+ years.

Debra has extensive knowledge of the various employment statutes and legal regulations affecting today’s employers and provides sound, honest advice to her clients. She has handled hundreds of unemployment claims on behalf of employers; has conducted numerous harassment investigations as an independent outside investigator; and has extensive experience in creating employee handbooks and policy manuals tailored to the client’s business. She handles EEOC discrimination charges, conducts harassment training for supervisors and non-supervisory employees, implements the disciplinary procedures for many of her clients, preparing all of their disciplinary writeups and termination reports, and provides a host of other HR functions.

Debra provides general HR advice, and many of her clients call her before they take any personnel action to make sure they do it right the first time. She has clients who she deals with on a weekly basis, and clients she only hears from when they’ve got a serious issue. She will provide as much or as little HR assistance as the client wants. For some clients, that means that she is their HR department, for others, she is there as-needed. She is always a phone call away.


Debra is a San Antonio native and a UT graduate. She is also a novelist, whose fiction series featuring attorney Samuel Collins was inspired by her work as a paralegal. She writes mystery and action romance, always with a thread of humor. When she’s not keeping employers out of trouble or writing novels, Debra is devoting time to her family, and to pets and wildlife in her community through her long-time affiliation with the Hollywood Park Humane Society.
