If your property was seized by a governmental agency, then you may find that you are entangled in a system that would preferably keep the seized property than admit it’s mistake. We have successfully reclaimed property for our clients from the federal government, the FBI, the DEA, the Department of Homeland Security, ICE, U.S. Customs, and the NYPD. These reclaimed properties add up to millions of dollars as cash, homes, vehicles, real estate, jewelry, family heirlooms, and other personal property. Whether you are facing civil or criminal asset forfeiture proceedings, retaining a forfeiture lawyer soon after receiving notice is crucial to determining whether you will recover your property, and how much of it. These cases are time sensitive and require timely advocacy, or else the property is defaulted and lost to the government agency.
