Attorney Lindsey C. Gergely of Orlando's Umansky Law Firm recently secured victories for four criminal law clients. Attorney Gergely's criminal law expertise and strategic defense led to favorable results in cases involving BB guns, racketeering and suspended drivers' licenses.

Termination of probation on RICO charge

A woman who had been put on probation for a RICO charge, a first degree felony, hired the Umansky Law Firm to try to reduce her probation. She had repaid the money she owed, served three years of her 10-year term and completed all of the other conditions of her probation. Attorney Gergely filed a Motion to Terminate Probation and succeeded in ending the client's probation term.

Effective negotiation of charges in BB gun shooting

While hanging out with two friends, one of the firm's juvenile clients shot a BB gun at the window of an apartment, hitting a man inside. The juvenile had never been in trouble before but the prosecutor would not allow the case to go into a first offender program. He was initially charged with the second degree felony of shooting a deadly missile into an occupied structure. His family hired Attorney Gergely, who was able to convince the prosecutor to drop the felony charge, allowing the juvenile to plead only to misdemeanor charges. The Client was sentenced to only probation and will be eligible to seal his records as soon as he successfully completes the probation.

Successful motion to recover driver's license

A client was caught driving with a suspended license, not knowing that it would be her third strike within a five year period. This caused her to be a Habitual Traffic Offender and she was notified that her license would be suspended for five years. As a single mom with two jobs, she knew that she could not get by without a valid license. Attorney Gergely filed a Motion with the Court trying to get the judge to change her conviction on the case, therefore removing the Habitual Traffic Offender Status. The Court granted the Motion and within a month the firm's client was back on the road with a valid driver's license.

Resolution of traffic violations

A client was charged twice with driving with a suspended license as he was unable to get a valid license because of a problem that occurred outside of Florida. He was sleeping in his car outside of his place of business when he was arrested. Even though he was not driving, the Defendant was technically in actual physical control of the vehicle in a place that was open to the public. Attorney Gergely was able to convince the prosecutor to amend the charge to a civil traffic infraction instead of the criminal charge. As soon as the client gets his issues resolved out of state, he will be able to get a Florida Driver's License.
