Adams & Luka Sumter County, Florida Criminal Lawyers

As seasoned criminal defense attorneys in Sumter County, we know that being investigated or arrested for a crime is a frightening experience. Whether you live in The Villages, Wildwood, Bushnell, or any nearby city, you may find yourself in a precarious situation if arrested on charges of DUI, shoplifting, theft, domestic violence, or any criminal offense. The thought of being found guilty and potentially facing jail/prison time is stressful, to say the least. At Adams & Luka, we provide exceptional legal guidance and support, always working toward the best possible results for each client we represent. We urge anyone who is under investigation or has been charged with a crime to contact us at once at (352)793-2100 or (352) 787-2101.

People are wrongly accused of crimes they did not commit every day in our country. Whether a sex crime, drug offense, or something as serious as armed robbery or arson, the criminal penalties are extremely harsh for those convicted. Perhaps you made a terrible mistake, and now fear your freedom may be in jeopardy. Regardless of your situation, every person is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. We work vigorously to provide our clients with the outstanding legal representation you deserve.

Having more than 30 years of combined experience under our belts, we have a proven track record in representing clients charged with a variety of crimes including, but not limited to:

  • Drug offenses including possession, manufacture, and distribution
  • Sex crimes including child molestation, statutory rape, and Internet sex crimes
  • Felony drunk driving, child endangerment, and other DUI-related offenses
  • Juvenile offenses
  • Violent crimes including arson, domestic violence, murder, and carjacking
  • Theft and property crimes including home invasion, auto theft, identity theft, and armed robbery

While a conviction for certain crimes will result in punishment that is less harsh than other more serious crimes, it is important you speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer right away.

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
