St. Cloud, Florida
A city of approximately 35,200, St. Cloud has a moderate crime rate when compared with the U.S. average, the most common crimes being thefts, burglaries, and assaults. At Adams & Luka, our criminal defense attorneys realize that any criminal charge can leave you feeling uncertain about your future, career, and other aspects of your life, even if you have been arrested for DUI or are under investigation for a possible drug offense. Certainly some crimes are more serious or violent than others, and incur harsher criminal penalties for those convicted. Still, any conviction can leave you with a criminal record and possibly ruin your career and reputation. No matter what your situation is, we can help. We invite you to contact our office immediately at (407) 872-0307.
You may be completely innocent of the allegations against you; many people do sit behind bars, convicted of crimes they did not commit. Juveniles often commit crimes due to peer pressure, not realizing the possible implications or damage to their lives. Others find themselves in a bad situation, and may commit a crime unwittingly. Even those who do commit a criminal offense purposely have legal rights that must be protected. A conviction for a crime may result in prison time, substantial fines, probation, community service, and other punishment depending on the crime committed, the severity of the crime, and the defendant's criminal history. For many, the most troubling consequences of a conviction include the impact on career, and loss of standing in the community. With more than 30 years of combined experience, our St. Cloud criminal defense attorneys are skilled, capable, and dedicated to reaching good results in your case.
We have had great success representing central Florida clients charged with all types of crimes, including:

There are many steps involved in the criminal process, which is extremely complicated. At Adams & Luka, our criminal lawyers are educated and skilled in Florida's criminal justice system. We know the tactics often used by police, and that prosecutors are relentless in their efforts to obtain a conviction. It is unlawful for police to violate a suspect's rights, although they often do. When errors are made or your rights violated, it may be to your benefit. We thoroughly investigate the charges against our clients, working to gather every detail and examine the evidence in our efforts to provide you with outstanding legal representation. While our hope is to have charges dismissed (or prevent charges being filed initially), we will mount a vigorous defense strategy in the event your case does go to trial. We fight aggressively on our client's behalf, doing all that is necessary to secure the desired outcome.Contact Adams & Luka Now
