Civil & Criminal Forfeiture
The government aggressively seizes the money and property of individuals through an increasingly complex array of laws and regulations. Modern forfeiture rules often fail to afford owners the right to contest the seizure of their property when the property is seized as a result of a criminal investigation.
Having an attorney to protect your property from forfeiture can be equally as important as having a good attorney to represent you in the criminal matter. Civil forfeiture actions can raise 5th amendment issues making a legal consultation vital to protecting your constitutional rights.
