The Experienced Lawyer You Need To Fight A Drug Conviction

Drug crimes are among the most aggressively prosecuted crimes in Minneapolis, St. Paul and the Twin Cities suburbs. If you have been arrested and charged with a drug offense, you need an equally aggressive defense attorney.

At Mankey Law Office in Golden Valley, Minnesota, attorney Matthew J. Mankey has the knowledge and experience to defend clients against a wide variety of drug-related charges in state or federal courts. Call 612-424-9454 today or email us if you would like to discuss your case with an attorney for free.

We push prosecutors for full disclosure and file every motion necessary to build the best possible case in your defense. We don't stop with the information provided in police reports; we conduct our own investigations, interview witnesses ourselves and double-check the evidence that was collected through the use of our own laboratories.

In short, we make sure the government meets its burden of proof.

Speak with us before you speak to police. A common mistake is saying too much to police under the impression it will help you. In fact, doing so generally strengthens the case against you. If you have been arrested with any type of drug, it is important to immediately consult with an experienced defense attorney. Do not speak with the police. We return calls after-hours and on weekends.

Let Us Help You Understand Your Options

We will review every aspect of your arrest to see if your constitutional rights were violated. In instances where authorities confiscated drugs after an illegal stop or during an illegal search, we have been able to get the charges dismissed. It is critical to have an attorney who is well-versed on search-and-seizure requirements.

We have helped individuals who have been charged with a variety of drug crimes. We offer a free initial consultation and can answer your questions on any of these charges:

  • Marijuana offenses
  • Cocaine offenses, including crack cocaine
  • Methamphetamine offenses
  • Drug trafficking
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • School zone and public park offenses
  • Prescription drug charges
  • Federal drug offenses, including conspiracy
  • Drug offenses involving weapons

Mr. Mankey has established a strong track record by understanding when it makes sense to go to trial and when the best possible outcome is more likely to be reached through negotiations. Our top priority is to limit the impact that any drug charge has on your life. We have helped many of our clients by negotiating reduced sentences or agreeing to alternative treatment programs.

Attorney Mankey's commitment to his clients extends beyond the outcome of a case. He cares about the long-term future of his clients, as evidenced by his penchant for providing them with resources regarding psychological counseling, drug rehabilitation programs and more.

Even Less Serious Drug Charges Should Be Defended Against

While it's true that certain drug cases carry more severe penalties for conviction than others, this does not mean that the "less serious" charges should be ignored. Even a charge for fifth-degree controlled substances including marijuana, meth and marijuana wax can lead to multiple years in prison and a fine. In addition, your criminal record can follow you around for years after you have served your time, making it difficult to get back to a normal life.
