Atlanta Asset Forfeiture Defense Lawyer
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:
- 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.
