Conviction on a drug charge has consequences that are much more far-reaching that most people realize. In addition to possible loss of your freedom, substantial fines, and a criminal record, a conviction could limit where you choose to live, the types of jobs you may be eligible for, and more. If you have been charged with possession, manufacturing, or delivery of illegal substances such as marijuana, cocaine, or heroin or are under investigation, it is important to obtain the help of an experienced Deland drug crimes attorney who has achieved good results for others in the same situation. At Adams & Luka, we work aggressively to protect your freedom and secure positive results so that your entire life isn't turned upside down.

Aggressive Legal Guidance and Representation for Deland Clients Accused of Drug Crimes

Being accused of marijuana possession is one thing; drug trafficking or distributing/selling illicit drugs is quite another. Florida is extremely hard on drug offenders whether you are arrested for growing or cultivating marijuana, or are found to be in possession of a substantial amount of cocaine, MDMA, or other substance with the intent to sell the drug. Prosecutors will quickly "up" charges from possession to possession with intent when possible, meaning harsher punishment if you are convicted.

We have a thorough understanding of how police and prosecutors work; we also know that police may violate your legal rights or make errors which could result in evidence being suppressed, or not allowed in court. Our firm takes no shortcuts when it comes to the freedom and future of our clients. We will vigorously investigate the charges against you, challenge any evidence brought forward by prosecutors, question possible motives of police or anyone else involved, and develop a sound defense strategy should your case go to court. We also believe in educating our clients regarding various legal options and diversion programs they may be eligible for.

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
