Handle Domestic Violence Charges The Right Way

Domestic violence can take many forms, including physical aggression, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, psychological abuse and economic deprivation. In response to growing public awareness of the severity of domestic abuse over the years, Minnesota lawmakers have enacted tougher laws and police have become more proactive in making arrests.

At the Mankey Law Office in Golden Valley, we understand the nuanced differences between true acts of domestic violence and arguments that may have escalated. We know how to make these points clearly so that false accusations of domestic violence do not result in a criminal conviction that can negatively impact the rest of your life.

Call 612-424-9454 to learn how we can help you through this. Your first consultation is always free.

If an individual is convicted of domestic assault and the court determines that the victim was a family or household member, the defendant may be prohibited from owning and possessing firearms forever. We work to minimize the long-term impact of criminal charges.

Time-Tested Results From Our Experienced Work

The serious nature of domestic abuse, combined with the proliferation of domestic violence victims’ advocacy groups, has ensured that domestic abuse is among the most aggressively prosecuted crimes in Minneapolis and the western suburbs, and throughout Minnesota. These assault charges can be extremely damaging to your career as well as your personal life.

Minneapolis defense lawyer Matthew J. Mankey has successfully represented numerous individuals against domestic violence charges. He has been involved in many cases in which an alleged victim realizes afterward that an argument escalated, but police should not have been called.

Alleged victims often choose not to testify. A thorough understanding of the rules of evidence can render victim statements inadmissible. Careful analysis of the evidence by an experienced attorney can radically change the outcome of a case.
