Adams & Luka Groveland, Florida Criminal Attorneys

As with many other cities in Florida, thefts are the biggest concern in Groveland, although the city has a relatively low crime rate in comparison with other cities its size. With a population of approximately 8,700, not a lot of crime takes place. However, when you find yourself facing charges for theft, burglary, drug possession, or even something as seemingly minor as DUI, it is important to consult with a skilled criminal defense lawyer right away. Your legal rights must be protected - and you want to avoid criminal penalties at all costs. At Adams & Luka, we provide our clients with excellent legal representation, and invite you to contact us now at (352) 787-2101.

Being accused of a crime is a stressful experience, whether or not you are guilty. Most individuals are not familiar with the criminal justice system, and do not know what to expect. You probably have many questions, and worry that you may face jail or prison time, depending on the crime you allegedly committed. What does your future hold, and how will your career or reputation be affected? We understand your uncertainty, and will work vigorously to reach positive results in your case. With more than 30 years of combined experience, we bring an abundance of skill, knowledge of Florida laws, and dedication to the table for our clients.

Some of our areas of practice in criminal defense include, but are not limited to:

  • DUI offenses including felony drunk driving and child endangerment
  • Drug crimes including possession, manufacture, and distribution
  • Sex crimes including Internet sex crimes, child molestation, and statutory rape
  • Theft/property crimes such as home invasion, auto theft, identity theft, and armed robbery
  • Violent crimes including murder, domestic violence, arson, and carjacking
  • Juvenile offenses

It is important to remember that you are innocent until proven guilty, and that you have legal rights that must be protected, particularly in the early stages.

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
