Law enforcement uses forfeiture and seizure to claim assets they believe were used in the commission of illegal acts. For example, if you are accused of using your car to transport drugs, the government can seize your car. Similarly, if you have been selling drugs out of your house, the government can seize your home. The government can also seize property they believe was purchased with illegally obtained funds, including, cars, houses, boats, bank accounts, and other property and assets.
Forfeiture and seizure can happen at almost any time. It can happen as part of an investigation before there has even been a conviction. In fact, the state or federal government can even undertake forfeiture and seizure actions separate from any type of criminal charge.
It is our job to take action and demonstrate that your property was not involved in or derived from the alleged crimes. Our goal is to give our clients the best possible outcome when facing any type of criminal charges. Helping you retain your most important and valuable assets is an important part of our representation.
If you want to take action to reclaim seized property, you want an experienced defense lawyer protecting your interests. From our offices in Spokane, we help clients throughout Washington, Oregon, and Idaho who are dealing with forfeiture and seizure issues. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
