Adams & Luka Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida Criminal Lawyers

Although Howey-in-the-Hills is a tiny city with a population of nearly 1,100, we know that anyone can be charged with a crime. You may have been arrested for DUI, or are under investigation for a theft offense or burglary. At Adams & Luka, we know how vital it is to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney when you have been accused of a crime, no matter how minor it may seem. Police and prosecutors work to secure a conviction; our job is to work in order to prevent a conviction. Ultimately, our goal is to prevent charges from ever being filed, which can only be accomplished if you contact us immediately. If charges have already been filed against you, we will work to have them dismissed or reduced. No crime is too minor or too serious, as we are highly capable and ready to fight on your behalf. Contact us now at (352) 787-2101.

You may be completely innocent of the crime you have been accused of; perhaps you made a mistake or had an error in judgment you now regret. No matter what the circumstances of your case are, we can help. Police are often over-zealous in their efforts to reduce crime. Unfortunately, when you find yourself in a situation where you have been arrested or are under investigation, it can be not only stressful, but frightening. Depending on the offense you have been accused of, will you potentially face jail time? How will your career and reputation be affected? We understand you have many questions and concerns, and are here to provide the legal guidance and support you need to reach your desired outcome.

With more than 30 years of combined experience, we have successfully represented clients accused of all types of crimes, including:

  • Sex crimes - child molestation, statutory rape, Internet sex crimes
  • Drug offenses - possession, manufacture, and distribution/delivery
  • DUI - felony drunk driving, child endangerment
  • Violent crimes - arson, domestic violence, murder, kidnapping
  • Theft/property crimes - home invasion, auto theft, armed robbery, identity theft
  • Juvenile crimes - drug possession, underage drinking, shoplifting, assault

Regardless of the seriousness of your situation, there are legal options and strategies that may help protect your innocence. You are innocent; your legal rights must be protected.

Howey-in-the-Hills Criminal Representation

At Adams & Luka, we do whatever it takes to protect our clients from a criminal conviction. From thoroughly investigating the charges against you and analyzing evidence to speaking with potential witnesses and developing a solid legal strategy, we understand you are in what is likely the most stressful situation of your life. We will work vigorously to ensure your legal rights were not violated, and dig deep to uncover any evidence that may be advantageous. We will also explore potential weaknesses in the case against you, and determine if errors may have been made by police, such as an illegal search or seizure. We know how to uncover any details that may work to protect your innocence, and how to develop a strong legal defense should your case go to trial.

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
