If the government believes that your assets were the fruit of illegal activity, it may initiate a forfeiture action to regain possession of items or monies.

Federal and state asset forfeiture statutes allow the federal government to seize property that was either used to commit a crime or if it was gained from the criminal activity. Some prosecutors use forfeiture laws in drug trafficking, fraud cases, or as a bargaining chip in negotiations. Our attorneys are experienced in helping our clients explore their options and defend their rights in asset forfeiture cases.
The government can seize assets even before the underlying criminal case is resolved. To protect your rights and prevent the forfeiture of your property, contact us as soon as possible.
Even if you have already been indicted, our attorneys can become involved at any stage of your case to determine whether you may face asset forfeiture. We will take aggressive action in your case and use our strategy, resources, and experience to develop an effective defense to asset forfeiture in your case.
