Attorney Profile

I am attorney Matthew J. Mankey and I have more than 20 years of experience providing aggressive criminal defense to individuals in the Minneapolis metropolitan area and throughout Minnesota.

I create effective legal strategies for individuals who face serious felony charges such as drug trafficking, illegal possession of a firearm or sexual assault. I also represent minors who face charges in juvenile court as well as individuals who have been charged with misdemeanors such as drunk driving, assault or petty theft.

I serve as a Criminal Justice Act (CJA) panel attorney for Minnesota, a position in which I help provide legal counsel to any person who is financially unable to obtain adequate representation. CJA panel attorneys are private practice lawyers who are appointed to federal cases on the basis of experience, continued education in criminal law and a strong record of performance.

I have also served as a contract public defender for Hennepin County and Anoka County, assisting these offices when their caseloads become too heavy.

If you or someone you love faces criminal charges, I encourage you to schedule a free consultation in our Golden Valley office. I will review the facts of your case and provide a straightforward assessment, as well as recommend the best course of action. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
