Adams & LukaPolk County, Florida Criminal Lawyers

While Lakeland is the largest city in Polk County, crimes can occur anywhere, whether in Haines City, Bartow, or even a small community such as Polk City. At Adams & Luka, we know how unsettling it is to be charged with a crime, or even to be under investigation. While thefts, burglaries, and assaults are the most common crimes in most cities in central Florida, individuals are often accused of domestic violence, rape, even murder. Whether you have been arrested for driving under the influence or are under investigation for armed robbery, we can provide you with the exceptional legal guidance and support to reach good results. Contact our firm now at (407) 872-0307.

Being arrested or even investigated is extremely frightening, particularly if you are innocent. Unfortunately, innocent people sit behind bars today, convicted of crimes they did not commit. Criminal penalties for many offenses are harsh, and may include jail/prison time, fines, a criminal record, probation, community service, and more depending on the offense allegedly committed and your criminal history. Even an offense such as DUI can result in harsh punishment and a ruined career, as many employers will not staff employees who have a criminal record. Regardless of your situation, we can help.

With more than 30 years of combined experience, our firm has a successful track record defending clients accused of all types of crimes including:

  • Property/theft crimes - home invasion, identity theft, armed robbery, auto theft
  • Sex crimes - statutory rape, child molestation or pornography, Internet sex crimes
  • Violent crimes - carjacking, manslaughter, domestic violence, murder
  • Drug crimes - cocaine or marijuana charges, possession, manufacture, or distribution of methamphetamine, heroin, or other illicit substances
  • DUI crimes - child endangerment, felony drunk driving
  • Juvenile offenses
Unsurpassed Legal Representation for Polk County Clients

As seasoned Polk County criminal defense attorneys, we highly advise anyone under investigation or charged with a crime to work with a defense lawyer. You may believe you cannot afford to hire an attorney, but the fact is you cannot afford not to considering your freedom, career, and reputation may be in jeopardy. The average person is not familiar with the criminal justice system, how police and prosecutors work, or even their own legal rights under the U.S. Constitution. In order to protect your future and obtain the best result possible in your case, you must obtain the services of a defense lawyer who knows how police/prosecutors work and the tactics they use, who will thoroughly investigate your case, challenge the evidence, and work to develop a solid, effective legal strategy. Your best defense is a skilled and aggressive attorney who is dedicated to protecting your freedom and legal rights.

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
