Lake County Theft Lawyer

Adams & Luka

Whether you have been arrested or are under investigation for shoplifting, employee theft, identity theft, or even auto or grand theft it is imperative to consult with an experienced Lake County theft attorney immediately. Even if you have not been formally charged, it's important that your legal rights are protected. You may never have been in trouble in your life, but even a misdemeanor charge could result in criminal penalties and a criminal record if convicted. At Adams & Luka, we provide vigorous legal representation for clients accused of theft-related crimes. We are on your side, and dedicated to protecting your freedom.

Many employers view theft crimes as those of dishonesty, which means finding employment may be difficult when a person is found guilty of any type of theft. A criminal conviction also makes it far more difficult to obtain housing, or to secure a loan. A criminal record impacts a person's life far more than most people realize. Even when you have only been accused, it is important to secure capable legal counsel.

Consequences of a Theft Conviction in Lake County

Aside from the consequences mentioned above, a conviction for petit or grand theft, or any related offense may result in serious criminal penalties and other damage to your life. Prison or jail time, substantial fines, probation, restitution, electronic monitoring, community service, and other consequences are possible depending on the seriousness of the crime you have been accused of, your criminal history, and other factors.

In addition, those convicted of a theft crime may face driver's license suspension, loss of occupational or professional licenses, loss of business and/or clients, loss of academic scholarships, and even the loss of trust among family members or friends. It is also important to note that a conviction could result in denial of application for U.S. citizenship or Green Cards.

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
