Wildwood, Florida Drug Crimes Lawyer

Adams & Luka

Many people do not truly realize how a drug conviction can adversely affect their future. For instance, a criminal conviction will result in a criminal record, something all potential employers, landlords, educational facilities, professional licensing agencies, and others can easily see when conducting a routine background check. Whether you have been accused of marijuana possession,, manufacturing methamphetamine, or selling/distributing heroin, cocaine, or other illegal substances, it is critical to contact a skilled Wildwood drug crimes attorney. At Adams & Luka, we know the serious consequences individuals charged with drug-related offenses face if found guilty. In order to protect your legal rights, freedom, and future it is important you take action and contact us today.

As with most crimes, the punishment you may face depends on a number of factors including criminal history, the offense you were charged with, where the alleged crime took place, and more. For example, a charge of marijuana possession is typically not as serious as a charge of distributing or trafficking cocaine. However, it is important to note that police and prosecutors will often attempt to turn a simple possession charge into one of possession with intent to distribute/deliver. You must have a qualified defense lawyer to guide and support you throughout the process and what is a complex criminal justice system.

With over 30 years of combined experience, our firm has reached favorable results for countless clients accused of crimes including:

Wildwood Criminal Penalties for Drug Crime Convictions

Depending on the offense an individual is charged with, the penalties for a conviction can be extremely harsh and may include jail/prison time, substantial fines, probation, and more. For instance, a conviction for drug trafficking will result in a minimum of three years in prison and a $25,000 fine, while the maximum fine could be as much as $200,000. Sales and distribution of drugs, intent to sell and deliver, and trafficking are all drug crimes that are frowned upon in central Florida, and harshly punished.

Ultimately, a misdemeanor conviction could leave you facing up to one year in jail, while a felony conviction may result in as many as 30 years in a prison cell. The punishment you face depends on the details of your case, even where the alleged crime occurred. It is vital to seek out exceptional legal representation in an effort to protect your freedom and future.

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.
