Our experience was impeccable representation from Attorney Barber! I express "our" because Attorney Barber went into my fiancé's case with extreme knowledge while sharply skilled into his craft as well high expectations of the fight, trial and outcome. All and more in which he delivered!
We then later needed representation for a more delicate member of my family. Because I/we had witnessed his skill, and were not just happy with the outcome of an impossible win, but EXTREMELY Impressed in our last experience with Attorney Barber, we did not hesitate and both entrusted Attorney Barber with this situation as well.
Our end result was overwhelmingly surreal!
In our prior situation where facing a minimum of 12 years D.O.C. and a maximum of 30 years to include priors, a current conviction as well as current violation of felony probation Attorney Barber got us Off on not 1 Extra day served; for 18 months total and the 18 months to be ran concurrent with the felony violation and what was left on the current D.O.C. sentence.!!!
Our recent and last situation, Attorney Barber did the same as far our fight, his skill and determination led us from a plea offer of 4.5 years and or 10 years minimum if found guilty to another very remarkable workmanship witnessed/done, only 213 days county jail time and minimal probation was our outcome.!!!
Thanks to Michael our family is as a whole again and are All free!!!
Words alone can Not thank this attorney for what he has given us all!!!
We will forever be thankful for the quality of service he provided and for what he has done and given us.

My family and I will forever be grateful for the amazing job Michael did. He was with us through it all and we loved that he was always able for us. He informed my family and I everything that went on with the case and was always there if we had any questions. Thanks to Michael my family is together and we will always be thankful for that!

Extremely dissatisfied with the representation I received... Not only did I have to contact the office on a REGULAR basis just to receive updates I ended up having to take a plea deal for an exigent circumstance case where the police entered my home without a warrant or probable cause! I was told throughout the process that my case was easy to defend and that case law was on my side. Once the plea offers started and I would refuse attorney Michael barber would tell me OK well I’m going to do this and that and next time around when I would look for an update it was the same thing all over again. I ended up basically being pressured into taking a plea offer that I could have secured with a public defender for $500, In essence I feel like I paid for waivers of appearance for the pre-trial hearings. I had also relocated out of the Orlando area and lived 6 hours away, one day after a pre-trail hearing I received a call from Michael Barber (First time ever) and was told about the latest plea offer and that I should probably take it or there would be a pretty good chance I would go to jail for 15 years and If I wanted to accept the offer I would have to be in Orlando the next morning! That’s less than 24 hours’ notice! I was told "Sorry” over and over.. I have lost my well-paying job due to this situation because of a problem neighbor which was no fault of my own! I too am sorry that I ever decided to retain this law firm! everything about how my case was handled is UNACCEPTABLE! They contacted me EVERY TIME payment was due like clockwork.. Wish they were on top of my case as much as they were on top of the payments! This was my personal experience with this firm.

Mr. Barber was very helpful and professional. He really did a wonderful job. Very informative and answered any and all questions i had. He is a wonderful lawyer. If by any chance I know of anyone that needs a great criminal attorney, I will recommend over and over!!! Very satisfied!!!

He may not have a soul because he's a ginger but he is truly the best lawyer I've ever had. I had an injunction case and Orange County and attorney Michael Barber was able to get the case dismissed without even having a hearing. I would definitely recommend attorney Michael Barber to anybody who is seeking excellent criminal defense or Junction related relief. His support staff is also excellent. His assistant Joseph Sutter was there to answer all of my questions and keep me informed. Umansky Law Firm is the best.

I contacted the the Umanksy law firm through email one morning before their hours of operation about my case. I was called back immediately and was asked to come in to personally to discuss the case.
Long story short some fool decided to break into my apartment and leave all the goodies for the cops to find . I wasn't there at the time of the break in so i just had a warrant for my arrest at the time, didnt know what my charges were either. But after meeting with Michael he told me my charges and what it would cost him to handle the case. I honestly think the price was very reasonable and worth it, especially since the case is dropped.
One of the main reasons I hired Michael is because of the great reviews , and the amount he has . So if you're reading this , hire him and you won't be disappointed! Especially after he tells you about the cases hes won this past year!
Hope I never have to hire him again , but I will without a doubt recommend him to anyone in need of help !

Michaels professional attitude and ability to handle my case was nothing short of excellent. His representation resulted in a dropping of all charges on a case that was weighting heavy on my mind. I can rest easy now Knowing that this matter is resolved. Thank You Michael. God Bless.

Michael Barber was amazing at getting my traffic ticket completely dropped. I was issued a careless driving ticket and the police wanted to press criminal charges against me, but Michael Barber was able to get my careless driving ticket dropped quickly and easily. If you're between a rock and a hard place and need someone to help get you out, hire this guy. He was incredibly patient and easy to talk to all while explaining the situation in laymen's terms.

Michael Barber reached out to me within hours of me contacting his lawfirm the day after my arrest, and this sense of urgency continued throughout the duration of my case. I faced a felony & first degree misdemeanor, and within three months of the incident, his work resulted in my misdemeanor being removed, and the felony being dropped down to a second degree misdemeanor. What could have had prison time ended with probation, due to his diligence in making sure the truth of my case came to light. If it was not for this, I would have not been offered my dream job back by my employer.
Mr. Barber also has fantastic connections within the legal community throughout Orlando, which helped so much with his understanding and work with the prosecution and judicial side of our the case. He has a very personable demeanor and is very easy to talk to. I can honestly say I came out of the worst period of my life as ideally as possible, and this wouldn't have been possible without him.

Michael is just a simple attorney that is very charismatic with the people. But when it comes down to defending you he is a mediocre attorney. He convinced me to plea guilty (the easy way after charging me 5000$) he didn't even fight for my charges I had to do it my self, and the most important fact is that he showed up late to my trial. Thanks Michael.
