Although Deland is not a particularly large city with a population of just over 27,000, the crime rate is extremely high, both when compared with the state of Florida and the U.S. average. In most cities, theft-related crimes, burglaries, and assaults are the most common crimes individuals are charged with, however auto theft, arson, rape, and even murder occur as well. At Adams & Luka, we know that when you are potentially facing criminal charges, it is a frightening experience regardless of whether the charge is carjacking, domestic violence, or something as seemingly minor as DUI. No matter what you are facing, we urge you to contact our firm now at (407) 872-0307.
The criminal penalties when convicted of a crime can be life-changing, stealing your freedom and damaging your career and reputation. Depending on the offense you are accused of, these penalties may include jail time or substantial prison time, fines, probation, community service, even driver's license suspension or court-ordered drug or alcohol counseling. However, you have legal rights, and are innocent until proven guilty. Our top priority is protecting your freedom and limiting the damage to your life.
With more than 30 years of combined experience, we have a proven track record representing clients charged with all types of crimes including:
- Violent crimes - carjacking, manslaughter, murder, domestic violence
- Sex crimes - child molestation, Internet sex crimes, statutory rape, child pornography
- Drug crimes - cocaine charges, marijuana possession, distribution, manufacturing, drug trafficking
- DUI offenses - child endangerment, felony drunk driving

- Juvenile offenses
As capable and experienced Deland criminal defense lawyers, we are highly familiar with the criminal justice system in central Florida. We know how aggressive police and prosecutors are, and the tactics they use to first charge an individual with a crime, then secure a conviction. Police must not violate your rights, however they often do. For example, a police officer may pull someone over for drunk driving even though he or she does not have reasonable suspicion to do so, which is required under the law. A search may be performed without the required warrant. We work vigorously on our client's behalf, investigating the charges against you, determining whether your rights may have been violated, examining the evidence, challenging the prosecutor's case, and developing a solid legal strategy in an effort to reach positive results. We will answer your questions and keep you informed throughout the process so that you always know where you stand, and what to expect next.Contact Adams & Luka Now
