Aggressive, Experienced Criminal Defense

Perhaps no other circumstances in life are more difficult than facing criminal charges. Facing the possible penalties of a conviction is certainly likely to be one of the most challenging times of your life. Whether you made a serious mistake, were in the wrong place with the wrong people or were wrongfully accused, you need more than a lawyer — you need experienced criminal defense counsel to protect your future.

Professional Respect Among Prosecutors And Judges

I am criminal law attorney John McManus of The McManus Firm in Royal Oak, Michigan. My defense litigation career goes back more than a quarter century, with the last 20 years focused heavily on criminal defense in state and federal court.

When defense lawyers appear at an arraignment, negotiate with a prosecutor, argue a point in the judge’s chambers or examine a witness in court, their name and reputation precede them. I am proud to have earned high respect among peers. My reputation for integrity is my clients’ biggest advantage.

My professional credentials and record include being named as a panel attorney for Criminal Justice Act (CJA) cases in Michigan.

My experience includes successful defense representation in state and federal crimes, including:

  • DUI and related drunk driving offenses, including vehicular assault and homicide
  • Misdemeanor and felony narcotics offenses and related drug conspiracy charges
  • Sex offenses, including federal internet sex crimes
  • Fraud, conspiracy, public corruption and white collar offenses, RICO charges
  • Federal Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm (ATF) charges, weapons offenses
  • Robbery, theft, burglary and property crimes
  • Violent offenses, murder, homicide, manslaughter, assault
  • Domestic violence
