Protect Your

Freedom Reputation Job Rights

The government has the authority to confiscate property used to carry out a crime. However, prosecutors are known to violate individuals’ rights when seeking to increase penalties for individuals suspected of fraud or drug trafficking. If your cash, bank accounts, vehicles, real estate, jewelry or other property has been seized by law enforcement, contact a federal criminal defense lawyer highly experienced in handling asset forfeiture cases.

Seeking to Uncover Holes in the Prosecution’s Case

I am Jeff Manciagli, an asset forfeiture defense attorney practicing law since 1987. I have a strong background handling asset forfeiture cases stemming from white collar offenses and drug charges. This is a highly complicated area of the law, but I know how to stay ahead of the prosecution when the stakes are high.

If you are under investigation for drug trafficking, racketeering or another white collar offense, the prosecutors may try to use asset forfeiture laws to try and increase the penalties against you. Contact us to learn how I can try and uncover the prosecution’s questionable tactics.

Handling Asset Forfeiture Claims and Drug Charges

If you are suspected of committing a drug offense, you may be surprised to learn that some of your property was confiscated. State and federal authorities can seize assets obtained from the illegal activity. Similarly, any vehicles used to carry out the alleged crime can also be taken. I am committed to defending your rights when facing serious drug charges.

I will also help you regain any property wrongfully assumed to be connected with the illegal activity. Forensic accountants can help make all the difference in tracking any financial transactions to show the property was wrongfully confiscated.

Handing White Collar Asset Forfeiture Proceedings

I have years of experience handling asset forfeiture proceedings in connection to white collar charges. I have a strong background defending clients facing white collar charges with assets taken by federal or state authorities, such as:

  • Jewelry
  • Cars
  • Real estate
  • Stocks and other financial investments

I am committed to fighting back against the Drug Enforcement Administration and FBI prepared to seize your assets or freeze your bank accounts. I will seek to suppress any evidence illegally obtained without a proper search warrant or illegal wiretap. I will aggressively defend you against fraud allegations, while helping you regain any property wrongfully confiscated.

Without an experienced lawyer on your side, you face a greater risk of the government confiscating your property or convicting you of serious allegations. When the stakes are high, do not settle for anything less than experienced representation. Contact our Asset Forfeiture Defense Lawyer today for a free initial consultation.

    Mr. Manciagli has done so much in so little time. In less than one month he was able to contact the courts and got me early termination for my supervised release. I am so grateful, he works fast and always stayed in contact with me. I highly recommend my attorney to everyone I am very satisfied with Mr. Manciagli. Very grateful to him for all he has done since the day I met him. He's just the best.


    Mr. Manciagli has lived and traveled all over the world, including Latin America, and his legal work has taken him to Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, and Jamaica. It was important for me, as a foreigner in the U.S., to have an attorney who understood me from a cultural level and who I could speak to in Spanish. If you or a loved one needs a criminal defense attorney, Jeff Manciagli is the attorney you should call.


    Jeff was recommended by a friend. I am very pleased with the way my case was handled & the outcome was very satisfactory. I would recommend him.


    Entered into a drug case (1/2 oz of molly & 1g. of marijuana)..... I have 3+ felonies....Jeff got me 6 months house arrest & probation.....definite prison time without him.......reasonable priced....Thanks Jeff.


    My lawyer in FL recommended Jeff when I got arrested in GA and didn't know what to do. I got pulled over in a cash-cow speed trap town 20 miles above the state line and they called a K-9 unit and got probable cause to search my car. I was livid and felt so violated. Luckily I hired the best of the best. Jeff always called/emailed me back promptly when I had questions about my case, and Always spoke to me as an equal. He took care of everything and when it came time to go to court was honest and logical in discussing what was best and how my plea would affect my future. Under his council I felt calm and in control. I was facing 3 misdemeanor charges and got them all dropped on the condition that I do a small amount of community service, pay a fine, and don't get in any more trouble for a few months. I didn't even get points on my license for the original speeding ticket. At the end of the day, money is replaceable- my time and freedom are not. If I or anyone I know ever has trouble in GA again, I will be calling Jeff.
