Your Right to a Jury Trial in Florida
What America Learned From the Casey Anthony Trial
The death of Caylee Anthony led to a murder trial that caught the attention of the American public. While the outcome has proven controversial, the case has made the public much more aware of the criminal justice system and how jury trials work. Terms like cross examination, closing arguments and others have entered the public vocabulary. Without commenting on the case itself, we believe that this knowledge is powerful and puts Americans in a better position if they ever find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
You Need an Attorney, Whether or Not Your Case Goes to Trial
You have seen how complex jury trials are. However, all aspects of the criminal defense process are challenging, and to go through them on your own is to open yourself up to the possibility of a significantly worse outcome than you could get if you are represented by an attorney who knows the process and knows how to find opportunities for success.
At The Umansky Law Firm, we consider trial one of those opportunities. We are criminal trial lawyers. We prepare cases for trial. We know about the nuances of pre-trial motions. We know how to attack the prosecution’s case through vigorous cross examination. We know how to present closing arguments that will clearly and convincingly present our client’s position to the jury.
