Defense Lawyers serving Tavares, FL

Perhaps you are under investigation for assault, a drug crime or sex crime, or have already been charged with home invasion or auto theft. Maybe you have been arrested for driving under the influence. No matter what situation you find yourself in, facing the possibility that you may be found guilty or spend time in jail/prison is frightening and stressful. Many people believe that DUI is not really a "big deal," but it is - DUI is a criminal offense, just as murder or rape is, although on a much less serious scale. In order to have the best chance of avoiding harsh criminal penalties and a permanent criminal record, it is important you work with a capable and experienced Tavares criminal defense attorney.

With more than 30 years of combined experience, we have a proven track record for successfully representing clients charged with all types of crimes, including:

  • Drug offenses such as possession, manufacture, or distribution of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and other illicit drugs/substances
  • Felony drunk driving, child endangerment, and other DUI-related charges
  • Sex crimes including child molestation, rape, and Internet sex crimes
  • Juvenile offenses such as drug possession, assault, underage drinking, shoplifting
  • Violent crimes including murder, arson, domestic violence, and kidnapping
  • Theft/property crimes such as home invasion, auto theft, armed robbery, identity theft

Regardless of what you have been arrested for, your future and freedom are at risk; you must speak with a qualified defense attorney.

Exceptional Defense for Clients in Tavares and Throughout Lake County, FL

If you have been charged with any crime, it is important to seek out a capable, experienced criminal defense attorney who is familiar with the criminal justice system, its process, prosecutors, judges, and more. Prosecutors must prove you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, which is not always cut and dried considering they must prove every element of a crime. Police are often over-zealous in their efforts to make an arrest; they also make mistakes such as pulling over a motorist without reasonable suspicion, or performing illegal searches. At Adams & Luka, we carefully review every client's case in an effort to determine whether errors were made, or our client's legal rights violated. We explore potential weaknesses in the prosecutor's case, investigate, and work closely with clients to develop a solid defense strategy so that harsh criminal penalties can be avoided whenever possible.

Regardless of how minor or serious your circumstances seem, it is never a good idea to try to fight the charges on your own. In order to reach positive results, you must have an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney who is aggressive, and understands how the criminal justice system works. Your freedom, reputation, and career may be in jeopardy at this very moment. Contact us immediately for a free consultation at (352) 787-2101.

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
