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 are charged with a drug offense, you need an equally aggressive defense attorney.

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

To build the strongest possible defense for our clients, 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 cases where authorities confiscated drugs during an illegal stop or search, we have been able to get the charges dismissed.

We have helped individuals who have been charged with a variety of drug crimes, including:

In all cases, our priority is minimizing the impact that a drug charge has on your life. We understand when it makes sense to go to trial and when negotiations are likely to lead to the best possible outcome. 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, 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.

We Are Committed To You And Your Future

We treat every client with respect. We understand your future is at stake and we want to help. We encourage you to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation in which we can answer your questions and provide a straightforward assessment of your case.

With more than two decades of experience in criminal defense, we are able to get a good sense of the likely outcome of your case, recommend the best steps to take and then guide you through the process.
