Lindsey Gergely recently represented my nephew. He was facing some rather serious charges. I was distraught and feeling sad because I know that sometimes the law will favor a woman. Once I saw Ms. Gergely in action in the court room, my fears were gone. She was so good at getting the facts out and getting the jury to see the truth.

Lindsey Gergely recently represented my brother. Originally he was charged with 3 felonies and 3 misdemeanors. Lindsey worked day and night and met with my brother numerous times in jail to gather all the information she could. I never thought I would ever meet a lawyer who cares so much about her clients but she definitely does. She went above and beyond and in the end my brother was found NOT GUILTY on all charges. Lindsey is an amazing attorney and I would highly recommend her. I could never thank her enough for what she has done for my family.

I am not very talented with my own words so if I may quote the King of Sweden in the 1912 Olympics. " You, sir are the greatest athlete in the world" After Jim Thorpe gold medal decathion win. Ms Gergely you are the greatest criminal defense attorney in my world. Your hard work, knowledge, and unyield commitment to us throughtout this ordeal clearly shows your dedication.

We hired Lindsey Gergely for our son who was in very serious trouble for aggravated assault, domestic battery, false imprisonment and several misdemeanor charges. These serious charges he was facing could have resulted in many years in prison.
Fortunately, we had Lindsey Gergely as our attorney. Her experience, hard work and dedication is unsurpassed. After a three day trial by jury our son was found not guilty on all charges!! The courtroom was full and everyone in attendance was very impressed with Lindsey Gergely.
We are extremely pleased with our favorable outcome and would highly recommend Ms Gergely. She is a competent, confident, professional and compassionate attorney. If you are in need of representation there is without a doubt no need to look any further. We will always highly recommend Lindsey Gergely.

Lindsey was a angel. I was in trouble (criminal charge). She did such a great job and I never even had to go to court. She is a miracle worker. She is efficient, smart and trustworthy. I am so happy! She saved my life and my reputation!

Umansky Law Firm was recommended to me by a family friend who had used the firm in the past. When I first met with Lindsey, there was no where else to look; I knew I wanted her to represent me.
"Everyone Deserves a Second Chance", is Umansky's motto and it is a good one. I had been hanging out with "the wrong crowd" so to speak, taken advantage of, influenced and tried to get out of the situation too late; I was taken into custody on Felony charges.
From the very first time Lindsey and I spoke; she planned a picture for me, then step by step over the process painted that picture perfectly! My Charge was dropped to a misdemeanor , with out adjudication.
Lindsey is dependable, gives fantastic advice and is very comfortable to work with. She is completely professional and Knowledgeable. If anyone I know ever needs representation, I am going to send them to Lindsey Gergely.

Ms. Gergely was an outstanding attorney. I contacted over 5 different attorneys regarding my case; The Umansky Law Firm, and Ms. Gergely in particular, was the only attorney who took a sincere interest in my case, made my wife and I feel extremely comfortable, and guided us through the entire process.
This was my first time ever having to hire an attorney; because of our ignorance my wife and I flooded their office with questions. From the receptionists, to the paralegals, to Ms. Gergely herself the customer service was outstanding and the willingness to answer even the most sophmoric of questions was superb. Ms. Gergely was very responsive to all of our questions, and generally responded to any messages we left for her within 24hrs (some sooner).
I would definitely recommend Ms. Gergely to anyone seeking a knowledgeable, responsibe, trustworthy, and informative lawyer.

We dealt with Lindsey to help us with our minor son who got into trouble doing something really stupid. We met with Lindsey to discuss the situation and she provided us with good advice and was very helpful. She's smart, articulate, and my son could relate well to her. He made a few poor choices, but she's a straight shooter and let him know the facts. He respected her honesty and has moved forward from that juvenile mistake. It was hard to deal with, but Lindsey helped us through it.

Lindsey handled auto driving violations for me that could have resulted in suspensions. She performed a miraculous result, violations were reduced to no point infractions and driving school. From one attorney to another, thanks for a great job.

Mrs. Gergely handled a criminal case for me with such speed it was over before I knew it. All I wanted in the case was actually given to me and in my favor. She is Professional, Smart, Fast, Dedicated, and overall just plan Sweet. Great Attorney! She made my nightmare a summers dream. I would hire her every chance I get! (let's just hope I don't have to) lol!
The judge asked me if I was satisfied with her service. I said BEYOND! She truly is GREAT!

Everyone makes mistakes and every now and then, you have to answer for them. I made a very poor judgment call one night and drove home (or attempted to as it turns out) shortly after having a few drinks with friends of mine. I had never been in any kind of trouble with law enforcement in my life and the mountain I faced in front of me was daunting. License suspension, classes, etc. I panicked every minute for the first five days after I was arrested for DUI. A friend of mine told me about the Umansky Firm where I met Lindsey Gergely.
At first, she and I just sat down and had a conversation about what happened that evening and what the officer did, and what I did. She explained everything to me and described what events and tasks I needed to complete and what the toughest parts of the process would look like. She eliminated completely my fear of the unknown. Her personable demeanor and careful attention to the facts of my case along with her amazing staff that help her at the firm, were effective at settling my nerves so I could focus on the tasks in front of me.
She kept me informed every step of the way from the pretrial conference to status hearings to her communication with the State Attorney's Office. She carefully contoured the strategy she used in my case to fit the characteristics and background of the Asst. State Atty who was assigned to my case and knew exactly the right moves to take at the right time. The St. Atty's Office stayed firm on a plea agreement that neither one of us was very happy with and I wanted to fold. I was so tired of dealing with the parameters of the case and i just wanted it to be over with, but her endurance never failed and she remained persistent until we obtained a result that we found equitable. Everyone's case is different and no attorney can ever guarantee victory, but she will try like hell until she knows it's unfavorable for her client's interests. She diligently pursued my best result for an entire year and I could not possibly be happier with the outcome of my case or the way it was handled. I learned my lesson for sure as painless as possible.
One day turned into another and another and eventually it was time for closure to this nightmare once and for all. She filed my motion for early termination of probation and it was granted without me having to be present in court.
I don't know what I would've done if I had retained an attorney who, due to their own fault or not, treated me like another file. I needed a counselor and advocate and that is what I got with Lindsey.

Lindsey Gergely saved our family! We were vacationing in Florida when our family needed a lawyer immediately to defend our son in a domestic violence case that was blown way out of proportion. Being from out of state, we did not know who to contact. We found Lindsey's ad in the Florida yellow pages....The heading proclaiming "Everyone Deserves A Second Chance" caught our eye. We contacted Lindsey's office. We were treated in a professional matter by everyone at the firm.
All our business was done by phone and email. Lindsey made us feel confident that our concerns would immediately be addressed and most of all that she could definitely help us. Lindsey Gergely is a knowledgeable, highly professional lawyer that cares about her clients. She did exactly what she told us she would do in a timely fashion. Our family can't say enough about Lindsey. We would highly recommend her professional services to anyone.

Counselor Lindsey Gergely represented me in a case to seal/expunge a previous criminal record that I had been aquited. It was not a simple case because the state attorney's office made objections to the petition from the beginning. However, Lindsey employed great original and practical tactics that were successful and my petition was granted by the court. Lindsey, Donika and the rest of the staff that I encountered are very courteous and always responded to my calls promptly. I would surely recommend them.

I used the Umansky law firm and Lindsey Gergely to represent me in a DUi case in Orlando. I was from out of state. They handled my case completely without me having to travel back to Florida. They were also able to get my DUi charges reduced to reckless driving and was able to get the other two charges dropped. They also was able to reduce the restrictions that were going to be placed on my driving privileges.
