Protect Your

Freedom Reputation Job Rights

If you have been charged with a drug offense, it is important to have a lawyer who knows the federal and state sentencing guidelines. Drug sentencing guidelines are applied by the judge based on the facts of the case to determine the sentence. Select an experienced Georgia drug sentencing guideline attorney focused on taking into consideration how the guidelines could come into play in your case.

Highly Knowledgeable on Federal Sentencing Guidelines

I am Jeff Manciagli, a trial defense attorney practicing law since 1987. I know how federal sentencing guidelines are applied to determine sentencing taking into account the defendant’s criminal history and the drug conviction. I prepare sentencing memoranda presenting all the reasons a judge should order a reduced sentence. I have structured sentencing memoranda around an exemplary military record, care for an elderly parent, and contributions to charity and the community.

If you are accused of committing a drug offense, put my experience in your corner. Contact us online or call (404) 642-9080 for a free consultation. I will apply my understanding of the sentencing guidelines to protect your best interests.

How Federal Drug Sentencing Guidelines Work

In drug cases, the sentencing guidelines are based on the type and the amount of the drug involved. In fraud cases, the guidelines are derived from the amount of money involved in the fraud. Other factors enter into the calculation of a sentence, including whether or not a gun was used and the actual role of the defendant in the commission of the offense. Federal sentencing guidelines are very complicated. The best investment you can make is to select an experienced defense lawyer prepared to develop a strategy taking into account the sentencing guidelines.

Uncovering Mitigating Factors for a Lower Sentence

Sentencing memoranda require me to be highly knowledgeable about my client’s circumstances. I take the time to uncover mitigating circumstances that address the requirements of the sentencing guidelines. In this way, I work to achieve the best results possible for my client.

    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.
