Adams & Luka Mount Dora, Florida Criminal Attorneys

Although Mount Dora has violent and property crime rates slightly higher than the U.S. average, theft crimes are the most common in this city of nearly 12,400 residents. Burglary and assault are less common, but do occur, along with robbery, rape, arson, and auto thefts. At Adams & Luka, our criminal defense lawyers know that being charged with any offense, even DUI or marijuana possession, is serious and requires the legal guidance and support of a skilled attorney. Whether you have been arrested or are under investigation we urge you to call our office today at (352) 787-2101.

Being investigated for a crime or arrested is a frightening proposition, as you are uncertain of what your future holds, and what you face in the criminal justice system. Certain crimes will leave an individual facing jail/prison time and substantial fines; some will result in probation, or a requirement to attend a drunk driving program. Driver's license suspension and sex offender registration are other sanctions an individual may face, depending on the crime you are accused of. As highly experienced Mount Dora criminal defense lawyers with more than 30 years of combined experience, we know the far-reaching consequences of a conviction, which go much further than loss of freedom. Your job may be in jeopardy; if you hold a professional license, you may lose it. You must have outstanding legal counsel in order to reach good results.

Below are a few examples of the types of crimes we have successfully represented clients accused of:

  • DUI - Felony drunk driving, child endangerment
  • Sex crimes - Statutory rape, child molestation, Internet sex crimes
  • Drug offenses - drug possession, manufacture, and distribution of all types of illicit substances/narcotics and prescription drugs
  • Juvenile crimes
  • Theft/property crimes - home invasion, auto theft, identity theft, armed robbery
  • Violent crimes - domestic violence, murder, arson, carjacking

This list is not all-inclusive, but gives you an idea of the types of charges we are capable of defending against from those that are minor to those most serious.

Aggressive Criminal Representation for Mount Dora Clients

At Adams & Luka, we are highly familiar with and knowledgeable in the criminal justice system. We know how police and prosecutors work, which gives our clients an edge.

We will thoroughly investigate your case, challenge any evidence brought forth by prosecutors, and work with you to determine the best legal strategy. There are legal options such as plea agreements in situations where it appears there is no way to beat the charges. Regardless of your situation, we fight aggressively in order to reach the best possible 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
