    I am attorney John McManus of Royal Oak, Michigan. As a trial lawyer with about 30 years of experience in the courtroom, I have had the privilege of opposing many of the brightest and best lawyers and prosecuting attorneys in Michigan and Ohio. There is one critical difference between successful attorneys and those who don’t make it very long in this profession: integrity. I have worked hard during my career to maintain professional ethics, a professional demeanor, and a high standard of quality representation I am proud of. I like to think my dedication has paid off in recognition among my peers and judges, but most of all in the respect and gratitude I have received from thousands of satisfied clients who have entrusted their legal problems to me over the years. My goal with every case — every client — is to help them overcome the difficult and challenging times that a serious legal problem causes. Whether you are an individual charged with a crime, a business owner accused of wrongdoing in a lawsuit, or in-house counsel seeking local defense counsel for an insurance matter in Michigan or Ohio, I would welcome an opportunity to discuss your matter with you. Choosing the right attorney is a highly personal matter. I invite you to review my credentials and experience at my attorney profile before you call.
