Criminal Defense Practice Areas
Donald Lykkebak limits his practice to criminal defense.
He appears in all state courts in Florida and federal courts
throughout the United States. His experience and preparation
allows him to accept any criminal case.
If Mr. Lykkebak agrees to represent you, you can be sure
that he will do the work himself. It will not be passed
along to a young and possibly inexperienced associate. We
believe that representation in a criminal case is personal.
Clients expect the attorney that they hired to do the work
and to be with them in court.
Donald Lykkebak is a board certified criminal
trial lawyer and so designated by The Florida Bar
and the National Board of Legal Specialty Certification.
What does that really mean to the client? To provide a
comparison: If you were sick and needed open heart surgery,
you wouldn’t let your family physician do it. You would hire
a heart surgeon. As it is with medicine, the same is true
with law. A criminal case should have the attention of a
specialist. Donald Lykkebak does not accept divorces, real
estate transactions, landlord/tenant or other non-criminal
legal problems routinely handled by non-specialists lacking
If your case requires a private investigator to identify
and interview witnesses, this law office is connected with

needs the attention of an expert witness, we have

Donald Lykkebak has always maintained his office
in Orange County, Florida. He is quite comfortable
in any court within the greater Orlando area. He frequently
appears in Osceola and Seminole County Circuit Courts as
well as in Lake, Volusia and Brevard.
Mr. Lykkebak is
admitted to practice in all Federal Courts. If your case is
a Federal charge, he has experience all over the country and
in Florida, from Jacksonville to Pensacola, Tampa, Miami and
Key West. We are quite willing to travel and have done so
Often alleged domestic violence or a battery charge can
lead to a petition for a civil injunction. This is an Order
entered by the Court restricting contact, communication and
residence of the parties. First, a temporary restraining
Order is entered without hearing. A full hearing is then
immediately scheduled to determine whether a permanent
injunction is permitted.
Whenever possible, it is very
important to avoid imposition of a permanent injunction.
Because the nature of the accusation made by the petitioner
is a criminal one (usually battery or stalking) Donald
Lykkebak frequently represents people who need protection
from the injunction process. He treats these cases with the
serious attention they require. Hearings are usually set on
very short notice. Therefore, you need an experienced lawyer
already well-acquainted with the process.
Because of his long history representing people accused
in criminal cases, Mr. Lykkebak has frequently appeared in
juvenile dependency matters as lawyer for parents or
grandparents. The issues presented in a dependency often
mirror claims found in a criminal accusation. Usually,
abuse, neglect or abandonment is alleged by the State
agency. The Court will schedule a hearing quickly. Often
this is within 24 hours. Decisions regarding placement of the child
or children are often made then. The family needs a strong
advocate with experience like Donald Lykkebak. Do not wait
to request an appointment.
