Adams & LukaPalm Bay, Florida Criminal Lawyers

Palm Bay is a city with a population of approximately 105,000 people that has a higher than average violent crime rate. As in most other cities, the most common offenses are those that are theft-related, burglary, and assault. Less common are such crimes as rape, arson, robbery, and even murder. At Adams & Luka we realize that even being charged with DUI or accused of drug possession can be frightening, leaving you feeling uncertain about what the future holds or what to do next. The first step you should take when arrested or under investigation for any criminal offense is to consult with a capable criminal defense attorney. We urge you to contact our firm now at (407) 872-0307.

Depending on the offense you are accused of committing, criminal penalties can be extremely harsh and may include jail/prison time, steep fines, community service, probation, or even court-ordered attendance of an alcohol or drug program in cases involving repeat DUI or drug offenses. If convicted of a sex crime, you will likely be required to register as a sex offender in addition to other penalties. A conviction will also impact your life in ways you may not have considered. Your reputation may be in jeopardy, as well as your career as you will have a criminal record. This is why it is so important to seek effective legal counsel and vigorously fight the charges against you.

With more than 30 years of combined experience, our firm has had great success defending clients charged with all types of crimes including:

  • Drug crimes - cocaine or marijuana charges, possession, manufacture, distribution of drugs
  • DUI offenses - felony drunk driving, child endangerment
  • Violent crimes - manslaughter, carjacking, murder, domestic violence
  • Theft and property crimes - armed robbery, home invasion, identity theft, auto theft
  • Juvenile offenses
  • Sex crimes - child molestation, statutory rape, Internet sex crimes
Unsurpassed Legal Guidance and Representation for Palm Bay Clients

As seasoned Palm Bay criminal defense attorneys, we understand how the criminal justice system works and all of its complexities. Fighting criminal charges on your own is never advised, as police and prosecutors have a way of construing all of the details and evidence to their own advantage. Police may act as though they are trying to help you, but rest assured they are not. Your legal rights must be protected from the very beginning; we know the tactics used by both police and prosecutors, and will use our experience, skill, and knowledge of Florida law to develop a defense strategy most effective for your particular case. Ultimately, our goal is to have charges dismissed or reduced, or avoid a conviction should your case go to trial. There are various legal options we will discuss with you in order to reach your desired 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
