Clermont, Florida Drug Crimes Lawyer

Adams & Luka

Being "busted" for a drug crime in central Florida is extremely serious. Whether you have been arrested for possession of marijuana, distributing or manufacturing illicit substances, or for possession of drug paraphernalia or trafficking drugs, contacting a capable and experienced Clermont drug crimes attorney is essential to protecting your legal rights and freedom. At Adams & Luka, we are all too familiar with the consequences those convicted of drug offenses face, not only in terms of potential jail/prison time, but damage to your career, reputation, even family relationships.

Many people are not aware that Florida is at the top of the list when it comes to drug charges for prescription medications such as oxycodone, a drug prescribed in 2011 10 times more than in any other U.S. state. Not only are marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and other illicit substances problematic, prescription drugs are as well. Police aggressively pursue those they suspect are involved in manufacturing or selling/distributing illegal drugs and narcotics.

Some of the most common drug charges we have experienced success in representing clients accused of include:

Severe Criminal Penalties for Those Convicted of Drug Crimes in Clermont

There are many factors that impact the criminal penalties or sanctions a person may face if found guilty of various drug charges. Whether you are arrested and charged with possession, distribution, or manufacturing, the type and amount of illegal substance involved will be a factor. If the alleged offense occurred within close proximity of a school, park, church, or other public or community facility, penalties may be enhanced. A prior criminal conviction for drug charges may also affect the severity of punishment. Penalties may include substantial fines that range in the tens of thousands of dollars, to decades in prison, along with a permanent criminal record.

Client Reviews

I would like thank my attorney Thomas Luka. I knew from the beginning I had the right guy in my corner. While celebrating with family and friends at a Public Park in Seminole County, a fight broke out among various people. Myself, and a good friend, broke up the fight and the instigators left. Six months later, I was wrongly accused as the person who started the fight. The first attorney I hired could not even get a response from the State Attorney handling the case. Someone referred me to Tom and I felt comfortable at his demeanor and reactions.

After conversations with Tom, who knew I would settle for nothing less than a FULL DISMISSAL due to my innocence, I hired him. His firm of Adams and Luka did the due diligence by interviewing witnesses and the police who were on the scene, as well as starting a dialogue with the State Attorney. After gathering statements from witnesses, Tom was able to present a strong argument on my behalf to the State Attorney on why the case should be dismissed. If the State Attorney was not willing to dismiss the case, Tom was ready to take the case to trial.

The result by Thomas Luka: Case Dismissed.

I am 53 years old with a spotless record and glad to keep it that way thanks to the time, effort, hard work, and professionalism of the Adams and Luka and Tom Luka.

Thomas Luka left a life-long great impression of lawyers. He was always professional, on time, and answered things honestly. From the start and during the 14 months it went on - Tom was very upfront and honest with me about the possible outcomes. The result was better than I had hoped for. Tom really over-delivered. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Marcela Giorgi
