Respectful of You. Aggressive with Prosecutors.

During the course of more than two decades of practicing criminal defense law, attorney Matthew J. Mankey has earned a stellar reputation among judges, prosecutors and other significant figures in Minnesota’s municipal, state and federal judicial systems.

The Mankey Law Office is noted for its professional yet personal approach, as well as an unwavering commitment to its clients’ best interests. We aggressively protect our clients’ rights through every phase of the judicial process.

At the same time, experience tells us that the best possible outcome for those who face criminal charges cannot always be a “not guilty” verdict. Some lawyers overpromise results. Unfortunately, their clients usually discover this after it’s too late to do anything about it.

Whether you are dealing with DUI, a sex crime or any other criminal charge, we assess each case on its individual merits during a free consultation and provide a straightforward assessment of what we believe can be achieved. Our primary objective is to minimize the impact that a criminal charge has on your life.
