Aggressive Advocacy in Massachusetts Criminal Matters 


When adults or juveniles find themselves facing criminal charges involving drunk driving, drug possession, domestic violence, or any other criminal offense, they can count on Sankey Law Offices to provide the experienced and aggressive criminal defense representation they need. We have extensive experience appearing in local district courts and at magistrate’s hearings for many years. In fact, our law firm founder, Jeff Sankey, was previously a military defense attorney and a judge in the Marine Corps. This experience has proven valuable for both military and civilian clients who are confronting criminal matters in Massachusetts.

With offices in Boston, Braintree, and Mansfield, we are equipped to serve clients throughout Bristol County, Plymouth County and Norfolk County, including Attleboro, Taunton, Wrentham, and surrounding areas.

Defending clients in adult and juvenile courts

Our cases range from domestic disputes to juvenile crimes, such as underage possession of alcohol. We handle misdemeanor and felony cases involving:

  • Drunk driving and other alcohol offenses: We have the experience to fight criminal and license proceedings in alcohol-related offenses, including DUI/DWI/OWI, underage drinking or minors in possession of alcohol, and any other alcohol-related offenses.
  • Drug possession and other drug crimes: Our law firm prepares strong defense strategies in all types of Massachusetts drug cases, including possession of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and Ecstasy, drug manufacturing, drug distribution, and other drug charges.
  • Traffic offenses: We help protect your driver’s license and minimize other consequences of a speeding ticket, reckless driving charge, or other traffic violation.
  • Domestic violence: Our law firm fights to protect your rights in domestic violence cases involving spousal abuse, child abuse, or any other form of domestic abuse. We also handle restraining order hearings and violations.
  • Theft and property offenses: We provide the defense you need in theft and property cases, including retail theft/shoplifting, larceny, trespassing, vandalism, disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct, and other offenses.
  • Assault and battery: Our law firm protects your rights and future in cases involving assault and aggravated assault, including bar fight assaults, vehicular assault, assault on a police officer, and other serious assault charges.

Our law firm is also available to provide effective defense representation to individuals who are arrested while attending an event at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, the Gillette Stadium/Patriot’s Stadium in Foxborough, or any other events in Massachusetts. These charges frequently involve DUI/DWI, drug possession, disorderly conduct, and many other offenses.

Representing military personnel through the United States

With extensive military law experience, we defend military personnel who are facing court martial proceedings and administrative hearings. We defend clients against military charges such as desertion as well as criminal charges such as murder, rape, and other violent crimes. As a retired Marine Corps colonel and former military judge, attorney Jeff Sankey offers these services to clients in the military or with family members in the military. Our law firm also welcomes inquiries from anywhere in the United States about representation under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).
