Orlando Asset Forfeiture Lawyers
Central Florida Criminal And Civil Forfeiture Attorneys
If you have been charged with a felony, particularly a felony involving drug trafficking, it is likely the government will seize your home, automobiles, boats, cash and other items. The Florida Contraband Forfeiture Act gives state law enforcement agents wide latitude to take any items they believe were used in the commission of a felony or acquired from the proceeds of a felony. Federal law enforcement has the right to seize items under a broad range of laws. The government can take your property before you have been convicted of anything.
Although it may not seem like it, you still have rights in this situation. If the government has seized your property, you have the right to a hearing, and you have the right to have a lawyer represent you in this hearing. We have handled a number of forfeiture cases and can represent you in your forfeiture case, as well as in the underlying criminal charges that led to the seizure of your assets. Contact Us today!
Handling Forfeiture Cases On A Contingency Basis
Our attorney fees in forfeiture cases are a percentage of what we recover from the government. Our first step will be to demand a hearing. In this hearing, the government will have to show by clear and convincing evidence that there is a connection between the property they seized and the illegal activity. We will present all evidence showing that your property and money was acquired legally. Our efforts regularly lead to the partial or total return of seized assets.
