Orange County DUI Diversion Attorney
Orange County offers DUI pretrial diversion programs for many first-time drunk driving offenders. These programs are an alternative to jail and other serious penalties, much like probation for a criminal conviction. The good news is that your successful completion of the program results in dismissal of the DUI charges and expungement of the case.
At The Umansky Law Firm, we provide dedicated DUI defense services to people throughout central Florida. We will review the facts of your case to determine whether you are eligible for a DUI diversion program as well as expungement of the case.

Veterans Diversion Program Eligibility
The Veterans Diversion program offers second chances to veterans of foreign wars who have been charged with crimes. The program recognizes that vets sometimes have a difficult time adjusting to life after serving their country. A veteran who is facing DUI charges may have struggles adjusting to civilian life. A veteran who has been charged with a theft offense may be acting out of frustration and depression. The Veterans Diversion program provides vets a second chance. Rather than be punished with mandatory jail time and other penalties, the vet participates in the program, and the charges against him or her are dropped once the program is completed.
