Drug Offenses in Ann Arbor
We can protect you from drug-related charges
Even in a community such as Ann Arbor with a consistently lenient stance on some drug offenses, being accused of possession or distribution of illegal drugs can have a major impact on your future.

You may be barred from certain careers or see personal relationships ruined because of the stigma associated with drug use.

Michigan's strict drug laws demand an experienced Ann Arbor attorney's help
Michigan's drug laws are strict. Penalties vary depending on the amount and type of drug in your possession, but you might face fines of thousands of dollars and years in jail. In Ann Arbor, possession of marijuana has been largely decriminalized — though it is still illegal — but you might still face charges for trafficking, or for possession or distribution of a different drug. It's also important to note that Ann Arbor's city ordinances do not apply on property owned or managed by the University of Michigan, where the campus police enforce the much stricter state laws.
With the possibility of fines, incarceration and other penalties looming, you'll need an experienced Michigan attorney on your side. Attorney Michael P. Manley understands the court system and has decades of experience helping people accused of drug offenses get their lives back on track. He'll use his resources to help you get your charge reduced or even dismissed altogether.
