The Experienced Lawyer You Need To Fight A Drug Conviction
Drug crimes are among the most aggressively prosecuted crimes in Minnesota. If you are charged with a drug offense in Hennepin County/Minneapolis, Carver County or another Twin Cities suburb, you need an equally aggressive defense attorney.
At the 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. Call 612-424-9454 today to discuss your case with an attorney for free.
To build the strongest possible defense for our clients, we conduct our own investigations, interview witnesses ourselves and double-check the evidence that was collected through the use of our own laboratories. We make sure the government meets its burden of proof.
Speak with us before you speak to police. A common mistake is trying to talk yourself out of a charge. In fact, doing so generally strengthens the case against you. If you have been arrested, it is important to immediately consult with an experienced defense attorney. Do not speak with the police.
What Are 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:
- Marijuana offenses, including cultivation and grow operations and related crimes
- Cocaine offenses, including crack cocaine
- Methamphetamine offenses
- Heroin 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
We’ll advise when it makes sense to go to trial and when negotiations are likely to lead to the best possible outcome. We have helped many past clients by negotiating reduced sentences or agreeing to alternative treatment programs.
Any Drug Conviction Can Follow You
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.
Committed To You And Your Future
Your future is at stake; we want to help. 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.
