Georgia Criminal Defense Lawyer
As an experienced trial attorney, I advise my clients about their options. In some cases, it is best to fight state or federal criminal charges vigorously. In others, it is wiser to negotiate with the prosecutor to obtain optimum results. Since I began to practice law in 1987, my knowledge and experience allow me to determine the best legal strategy for my clients.
Do I really need a lawyer?
You probably need your own lawyer if you have been charged with any crime or even a serious traffic offense. Otherwise, you may be required to move forward with a public defender that you have just met, likely overburdened with a crushing caseload and unable to devote the time and effort necessary. In more serious cases, the judge may order you to return with your own attorney, continuing your case until a later date. Starting to develop a sound legal strategy before you even appear at a pre-trial hearing will allow your case to move forward quickly. An experienced criminal defense lawyer will protect your rights while working toward the best possible outcome.
If you have been charged with a state or federal crime, contact criminal defense practice. You can be assured that I will defend you zealously. Call Jeff Manciagli, Trial Attorney at (404) 642-9080 to begin protecting yourself.
What should I expect my attorney to do?
An experienced criminal defense lawyer will investigate the facts, review all police reports, interview witnesses and examine the evidence against you. An effective lawyer is accessible to clients at all times. A knowledgeable defense lawyer will file motions to suppress illegally obtained evidence. This requires the attorney to review the prosecution’s case carefully to identify problems that can benefit the client.
What kind of cases do you take?
In my years of practicing criminal law, I have handled almost every type of state and federal matter. My federal cases include serious drug offenses such as trafficking, racketeering, and bank robbery. I also defend clients against serious state charges such as murder, arson and rape. Whether the offense is prosecuted in state or federal court, I use my experience to defend clients vigorously, protecting their rights and seeking the best possible result for them.
