Orlando, FL, United States, 2012/03/05 - Attorneys Gary Schwartz and Zahra Umansky attended the event to learn more about criminal defense strategies for defending clients - TheLawMan.net.
Gary Schwartz and Zahra Umansky, attorneys with The Umansky Law Firm, joined the NACDL (National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers) in Ft. Lauderdale. The event hosted by NACDL was entitled "Confronting the Mob Mentality II: Challenging Charges of Sexual Assault" and ran from February 16th-19th.
The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) is the preeminent organization in the United States advancing the mission of the nation's criminal defense lawyers to ensure justice and due process for persons accused of crime or other misconduct. A professional bar association founded in 1958, NACDL's 10,000-plus direct members in 28 countries - and 90 state, provincial and local affiliate organizations totaling more than 40,000 attorneys -- include private criminal defense lawyers, public defenders, active U.S. military defense counsel, law professors and judges committed to preserving fairness within America's criminal justice system.

The Umansky Law Firm practices criminal defense, personal injury, and juvenile defense law in Florida and is located in Downtown Orlando. The Umansky Law Firm also defends clients accused of different sex crimes because people need fair legal representation when:
• False charges of sexual assault arise to cover up consensual sex
• False charges are used in an effort to seek revenge against an individual
• False memory syndrome comes into play as a serious factor of allegations
The 2-day program was catered to criminal defense lawyers all over the country, facilitating discussions on strategically defending and minimizing media's impact on people faced with sex crimes. Along with learning about these best strategies for effectively defending clients, NACDL members participated in conversations from experienced litigators that covered topics such as:
• The cross-examination of children
• SAIN examinations
• Jury Selection
• Questioning the inclusion of the "Rape Kit"
The takeaways from the conference will help both Mr. Schwartz and Mrs. Umansky give clients a better chance of success in the outcome of their case, no matter the difficulty.
"The seminar provided a wonderful opportunity for lawyers and experts," says Gary Schwartz. "Zahra and I were able to get together with people all over country to strategize about how to best defuse the hatred and bias one faces when defending cases involving allegations of sexual misconduct."

Our attorneys will be at your side through every step of your case: every consultation, court appearance, negotiation and trial if necessary.
