4th Amendment Violation

If the property is seized following an illegal search that violated someone’s rights against unreasonable search and seizure, we’ll ask for dismissal.

Lack of probable cause

If police officers did not have sufficient evidence to link the property with a crime at the time it was seized, the property may have been seized illegally.

8th Amendment Violation

The 8th Amendment protects against excessive fines. If assets are forfeitable, but the crime is not equal, the forfeiture may be ruled unjust.

Unreasonable Delay

An excessive delay in bringing a forfeiture case to trial that harms a defendant or claimant’s ability to fight to retrieve their property may result in dismissal.

Don’t Be a Victim of Seizure laws!

Cash seizures are one of the largest areas of potential law enforcement overreach in the United States today. Many police departments, sheriff’s offices, the TSA and prosecutors have been accused of using this practice as a method of generating revenue rather than fighting crime. In these cases, you need an experienced defense attorney to help you challenge the seizure of your property.

Cash and Asset Seizure Overview

Equitable Sharing

Through civil forfeiture, the government (or any agency that seized the property) sell such property and keeps as much as 80% of the proceeds for itself. This practice is also known as equitable sharing.

Cash & Asset Forfeiture Stats

According to Forbes’ article regarding civil forfeiture, “without warrants and despite a lack of criminal charges, law enforcement nationwide has taken in $2.5 billion from 61,998 cash seizures under equitable sharing” and “local and state authorities kept $1.7 billion for their own uses.”

How Seizure and Forfeiture Happens

Civil Forfeiture happens when you have had your car, home, or other property seized by the government even though you were never charged or convicted of a crime, then you have been victimized by civil forfeiture laws. The Institute for Justice defines civil forfeiture as “the government power to take property suspected of involvement in a crime” even if the owner was not charged with a crime.
