Controlled Substance Crimes

Although Florida voters recently approved a constitutional amendment legalizing marijuana use for medicinal purposes, the state has by no means taken a more lenient attitude towards drug use. Indeed, law enforcement officers, prosecutors and judges all take drug crimes very seriously. And unfortunately, this strong stance all too often leads to steep fines and lengthy prison sentences for nonviolent drug crimes.

If you have been charged with a drug crime in Florida, you are understandably experiencing anxiety, confusion and worry over your future. Whether the alleged offense involves possession, selling or trafficking, the consequences of a conviction are severe. Crimes allegedly involving prescription drug abuse, methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and marijuana can significantly impact your future — in both the foreseeable future and the long-term.

Aggressively Protecting Your Future

The right criminal defense attorney can help protect your future. At The Law Offices of Elaine E. Lukic, I am that attorney — with over 20 years of experience in the criminal justice system, I know what needs to get done and how to get it done. As a former prosecutor, I'm familiar with the process both inside and out — and my clients benefit from this insight.

I am dedicated to defending the rights of all of my clients — I believe in treating them with respect, listening to their concerns and giving them the individual attention their case needs (and deserves) all in pursuit of obtaining the best outcome possible.

Serious Charges Deserve A Serious Defense

With a reputation as a lawyer who gets a high rate of dismissals and acquittals, my main concern is protecting you from harm, both now and in the future. Especially in light of the harsh drug crime sentencing guidelines, which can include penalties up to a $500,000 fine and 30 years in prison.
