Orlando Drug Sales and Delivery Attorney

drug sales

In the state of Florida, drug sales and/or delivery can leave you facing serious criminal charges. Similar to drug trafficking, selling or delivering certain drugs such as cocaine may leave you facing up to 15 years in prison if convicted. At Adams & Luka, our Orlando drug crime lawyers are dedicated to providing those accused of selling or delivering drugs with outstanding legal guidance. We understand the uncertainty and fear you may be experiencing; we will provide you with the support and experience essential to reach positive results.

Whether you are found in possession of cocaine, ecstasy, heroin, marijuana, or any illegal substance, police can charged you with drug delivery regardless of whether evidence exists that money was exchanged. In many cases, the mere amount of a drug in someone's possession is enough to indicate that it was intended for sale or delivery, rather than for personal use.

What Must Prosecutors Prove in an Orlando & Central Florida Drug Sales and Delivery Case?

Essentially, all that is necessary to convict you is that the prosecutor can prove you delivered or sold an illegal drug, which may be accomplished by providing a witness, who may or may not be an undercover police officer or confidential informant. Additionally, you may be charged with delivering drugs if it can be proven that you did possess a drug, and you had the intent to sell.

Possible Defenses Against Drug Sales and Delivery in Florida

Anyone who is accused of drug sales and delivery has a right to an aggressive defense. At Adams & Luka, our Orlando drug crime lawyers will work tirelessly to have charges dismissed or to obtain an acquittal when possible.

One of the most common defenses to these types of charges is entrapment. This involves police or confidential informants pressuring an individual into selling drugs, so that they can provide proof of the defendant's guilt. In addition, it is not unusual for witnesses with questionable motives to provide damaging testimony. These "questionable" witnesses may be others who have been convicted of a drug or other crime and who are willing to provide testimony to help their own situation, such as giving their testimony in exchange for a lighter sentence.

Police or investigators may also have performed an illegal or unconstitutional search and seizure. Our top priority is to determine all of your legal options and work with you to reach the desired outcome.

As mentioned earlier, a conviction on charges of drug sales and delivery could result in up to 15 years in prison. It is also important to note that when a drug crime such as the sale/delivery of cocaine occurs within 1,000 feet of a school, church, public park, or public housing, the charges may be enhanced to a first-degree felony, which may result in up to 30 years in prison.

It is easy to see that a conviction could impact not only your freedom, but your career, reputation, relationships - every aspect of your life. Essentially, your freedom and future may be in jeopardy. When facing such serious charges, put your case in capable hands and expect a great result.

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
