Keeping Your Property Out Of The Government's Hands
If law enforcement believes that you used certain property (such as your car or your money) to commit a crime, it can seize that property in a process called "forfeiture." It can also seize your property if it believes you obtained it with ill-gotten gains, which means purchasing it with money earned from illegal activity.
If you receive what's called a "notice of intent to seize," the clock has already begun ticking. You have only one chance to keep your property. Don't try to protect your property on your own. We have been successful in getting large sums of money, vehicles and other property returned to our clients, even after convictions.
