Why You Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer

Many people wrongfully assume that there is no way for them to benefit from acquiring private representation.

This often results in certain areas of defense going unexplored that could have resulted in your freedom.

Aggravated Assault With a Firearm

The Umansky Law Firm represented a client in Osceola County accused of Aggravated Assault with a Firearm. The minimum mandatory sentence for this alleged offense is 20 years in prison. The allegation was that our client shot a firearm towards the alleged victim – therefore Florida’s “10/20/Life” sentencing provisions applied. We contacted the alleged victim, who stated she did not want to prosecute. We prepared an affidavit from the alleged victim to the prosecutor stating her desire to have the charges dropped. On the day of trial, we were successful in getting the charges dropped against our client after the prosecutor dismissed the charges!
