Review Zahra Umansky

  • Renting a Vehicle with the Intent to Defraud

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    Last year I got into a cab under the influence of alcohol and was unable to pay my cab fare becaues I left my tab open at the bar. The cab driver rang the police and I was arrested and charged with a 3rd degree felony of renting a vehicle with the intent to defraud. Over a $30 cab fare. That I was unable to pay under that state of mind. I spent almost 2 full days in jail and felt like my life was falling apart.

    My mother found The Umansky Law Firm online (after reading great reviews) and so we scheduled an appointment. I had reckless driving on my background, so we thought this would be a difficult case to fight. Mrs. Umansky was extremely professional, personable, poised, and confident, everything that you could want from a lawyer. She was honest and did not guarantee any results (as no lawyer should), however her and her staff told us to fill a few documents here and there, but that she would take care of the rest. Her services allowed me to continue with work, live my life, and move on from the incident. A year later (last week) the case has been dropped and my record has been expunged. Further, her husband provided very kind words that resonated with me and motivated me to get sober. Go in for a consultation, you won't regret it.

    I have had the unique experience of being on both sides of a Zahra Umansky case. Years ago, when I worked as her legal assistant, I witnessed first hand the attention to detail and work ethic she applies to each case. When the time came for me to seek representation for myself, there was only one choice. Despite having previously worked for her, Zahra was still able to exceed my expectations for my case. She was able to get the prosecutor to drop my DUI down to a reckless driving and get me some very favorable conditions along with it. I would highly recommend Zahra Umansky and the entire Umansky Law Firm to anyone considering representation.

    Zahra Umansky is such a kind, understanding, helpful, and patient person. The whole law firm itself is full of generous and helpful people. They are very organized and informative. Most importantly, they won my case! If that doesn't describe a wonderful lawyer, I don't know what does.
    Thank you, Zahra!

    Yes! I definitely recommend the Umansky Law Firm. Zahra Umansky, Antuanette, and staff, have expeditiously closed the criminal case against me. Fortunately, I discovered their law firm, and they have made the entire case resolution process as painless as possible. Presently, they are handling my case expunction, and I am very confident it will be completed thoroughly as well. Everyone there I spoke with by phone, communicated with via email, and/or met with in person, has always been professional, real, and compassionate.

    Zahra was professional and very competent, but also warm and easy to work with. I felt she genuinely wanted to help me and work for the best result. I'm recently arrived from Great Britain and it was all a bit overwhelming, but she put me at ease and guided me through every step. Even before I hired her, she gave me a piece of advice that saved me hundreds of dollars. I highly recommend her.

    I first found the Umansky Law Firm by researching top firms, high success rate, and client reviews. I needed to retain the best representation for my son. I was looking for someone that was highly qualified in the legal relm, skilled and knowledgeable that would fight for and believe in him not just see him for the mistakes he's made that would connect and was relatable. I found this and so much more in Zahra Umansky. I would recommend Zahra Umansky to anyone seeking qualified, professional, compassion, and understanding

    Recently I found myself in need of legal assistance due to a VERY bad decision on my part. I was extremely stressed and worried over my situation, which seamed rather bleak. I did some research, and made a list of law firms/attorneys to consult about my case. After consulting with other offices, I then went to my appointment at the Umansky office. I was greeted by friendly staff while I waited for my consultation, and was fortunate enough to have Zahra herself counsel me. She reviewed the information I had provided, and explained options to proceed with my case, and she seemed to honestly be concerned about me as an actual person and also what I wanted from a legal standpoint. After this consultation I knew that Zahra and the Umansky firm was whom I would be hiring. Zahra seemed not only more competent and knowledgeable than some of the other attorneys I had previously spoken to, but she was also very relatable as a person.
    Throughout the process of my case, Zahra herself or one of her staff kept me constantly updated on what was happening regarding my case, inform me of any new developments good or bad, and they always were interested in how I was holding up personally. From what I hear, that's not exactly common with many law firms/lawyers. That is just one example of how Zahra and the Umansky team separate themselves above the rest.
    My case concluded with an outcome beyond what I had thought possible. I am very grateful to Zahra and her team for everything and would recommend her to anyone.
