As a retired Marine Corps Colonel and former military judge with 26 years of legal experience, Attorney Sankey knows the value of aggressive legal representation. Attorney Sankey served for nine years on the Mansfield School Committee, which formed the basis for his passion for working on behalf of young people, whether in Juvenile Court or helping children to obtain special education services. Attorneys Jeffrey Sankey and Alisa Hall take special pleasure in working with children with special needs, and are devoted to helping them obtain the educational services and placements that they need to succeed. We have the experience and commitment to assist parents as they navigate the special education process, from team meetings to due process hearings. Attorney Sankey also has many years of experience in handling personal injury and accident cases. Our clients also seek our assistance with problems as diverse as a drunk driving charge, being the victim of sexual harassment at work, or needing help to probate a family member’s estate. We have the resources and experience to guide our clients through the courts during these difficult times.*AV Preeminent and BV Distinguished are certification marks of Reed Elsevier Properties Inc., used in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies.
