About Me

               Lindsey C. Gergely is the newest member of the Umansky Law Firm. Lindsey came to the firm after serving as an Assistant State Attorney in the Orange County State Attorney's Office.

                While at the State Attorney's Office, Lindsey earned the title, Champion of Justice, from her supervisors for her work as a prosecutor.

She handled only cases that involved Domestic relations including but not limited to Domestic violence battery, Violations of Domestic violence injunctions, Stalking, Assault, Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and Violations of domestic violence pre-trial release conditions.
