I contacted the Umansky law firm on February 2015 after been working with another attorney for about 8 months and having not results. Thanks to God I found Anna Wedge-McMillen who took my case and saved my life, I highly recommend her and the Umansky law firm.

I would highly recommend anne to anyone looking for a lawyer that will get you results. Anne represented me on my VOP case and completely exceeded my expectations ! I was expecting to have to do at least 3 weeks in jail but anne had me in and out in exactly a week (which is highly unusual with VOP cases). She also was very understanding and worked with me after there were some complications with payments. The only complaint I had was she is a very busy attorney so sometimes it was hard to get in contact with her, but when I emailed her she usually got back to me same day, even after office hours so I would recommend email versus trying to call her. I cannot thank Anne enough for everything she did for me and for being so understanding. She truly believes the firms motto of "everyone deserves a second chance" and I highly recommend her !

Was given the run around for several months for a simple motion. Takes several emails just to get a response. First motion was filed incorrectly, then attorney told us to get contact info from professional so she could explain what needed to be done, and that the motion would be refiled with no extra charges Several weeks later after forwarding this information was told to do it ourselves. No problem should have just said so. Forwarded new evaluation from Professional no response for several weeks, then finally a response that it was filed but with no motion. They wanted to recharge to file a motion that they filed incorrectly. This is after four months of poor representation and delays plus the money spent ( several 100 dollars) on classes deemed unnecessary by professional. All this waste of time and money with no results for a simple Motion to Modify conditions of Probation. Would have hate to see what would have happened if this attorney was our representation in criminal procedures or at trial. All this after we had spent over $ 10,000 with this law firm.

My Case was a unique one because it was very new and dealing with science and statues that were outdated and confusing for most people to fully understand even LEO and the states attorney . The States Attorney thought they had a good case against me and falsely arrested me based on what they believed to be probable cause.. Once Anne heard about my case she was like a pitbull ready to tear the investigation apart. She found soo many flaws in how the investigation was handled and many mistakes that LEO made in the process. It came down to the point where the States Attorney office wanted to offer a plea deal and I decided that it would not be in my best interest to accept the plea offer and they were using the plea deal as a cop out for their mistakes and to recover the costs and tax dollars that LEO and SAO wasted in the investigation. Anne and I decided we would reject the plea and take the case to trial since we knew we would tear the prosecution apart during trial and I was innocent of any wrong doing. On the day before the trial scheduling conference the states attorney decided it was in their best interest to file no prosequi in the case. We had won. case closed. My advice to anyone that wants a lawyer that will take their case very seriously and dig deep into the facts of the case and make you feel like you are fully in control of the case. Anne is very positive and upbeat and is a very analytically. Being a former state prosecutor she is very connected in the legal world and knows a lot of the right people. She is not what some would call a "Plea Lawyer" and she will take your case all the way to trial if she feels it is in your best interest that you can win. Thank you Anne for your help.

Anne is an excellent attorney. My case was not an easy one, because of the original charges, the Lake county prosecutor was not willing to dispose of the case. I did nothing wrong yet they pushed Anne to her limits. Pit Bull is the best way to describe this attorney in handling cases. She is relentless and fearless, and she knows cases from top to bottom. Her empathy for me and my case was one that me feel so much at ease. A small charge that had severe, long term consequences. Thank you and your entire staff for the resolution of my case. I took a voluntary plea just so this case would go away, and I got the results I was wanting. Anne knew I did nothing wrong yet our justice system makes it difficult to resolve cases that should have never been in court to begin with. If you ever need a lawyer that is on your side and will resolve the case effectively then Anne Margaret Wedge-McMillen is the one to have. Excellant job well done.

Anne Margaret Wedge-McMillen was very professional and a great listener. I researched her credentials and she is very experienced and her knowledge helped me greatly with my case. Before meeting with Anne I shopped around for attorneys and it was not till I consulted with her that I finally felt comfortable. My future was in jeopardy and I was very scared. Anne saved my future and I cannot be more pleased with her hard work and dedication. I highly recommend Anne Margaret Wedge-McMillen and her staff was very informative and helpful.

After I went from lawyer to lawyer The first 10 mins of meeting with Anne and speaking to her I knew she was the one for my case
And I knew she would not only win my case but she would be able to get my case thrown
Out of court! I don't have the words to express my thanks! I never even had to see a court room at the 2nd per trial Anne convinced the prosecutor that my case dose not hold water and my case was dismissed. And my case was not a small one it was a PBL ((punishable by life)) so Anne really really knows how to Handel her self in the court room! I will recommend anyone who has a criminal case not to look for anyone els then Anne Margaret!!!! Thanks again Anne God Bless You!
