Why it is Vital to Work With a Clermont Juvenile Defense Attorney

There are various legal options when it comes to crimes involving juveniles - diversion programs, a citation program, having a minor's juvenile record sealed or expunged - it is vital to do whatever is necessary to protect your freedom, reputation, and future. A criminal record can impact a juvenile's future in a negative manner in regards to employment opportunities, education, housing, and more. When a minor child is found guilty of a criminal offense or he/she violates requirements set forth under a juvenile diversion program, it can result in problems in the future. Teens are human, just like everyone else; as well all do, they make mistakes without considering the possible repercussions. Examples of punishment a minor may face for violating a diversion program or being convicted of a crime include fines, community service, probation, loss of driving privileges, counseling, confinement to house arrest, or even confinement in a juvenile detention center.

At Adams & Luka, our Clermont juvenile defense attorneys are experienced and skilled when it comes to crimes involving minors. We understand how the juvenile justice system works, and prefer than juveniles have the opportunity to rehabilitate rather than face harsh punishment. Depending on the offense a juvenile has allegedly committed and his/her mental capacity, a minor may be tried as an adult in some cases. It is imperative you choose a lawyer who will thoroughly investigate the charges, examine the evidence, and work to secure the best possible outcome so that your child can avoid harsh criminal penalties and focus on a productive, fulfilling future as an adult.

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
