Seized Property Top-Rated Legal Counsel

Recovering Seized Assets

Miami Asset Forfeiture Attorneys

It is not at all uncommon in federal criminal cases for agents of the federal government, such as the FBI, DEA, Homeland Security, U.S. Marshals, etc., to seize property after a search. Such property is typically seized because the agents feel that the property seized is or may be evidence of a crime. In many cases, a search warrant may have been issued, authorizing the agents to seize certain items. Sometimes, the property is seized after a “consent search.” Contact our experienced Miami asset forfeiture attorneys for more information.

Returning Your Seized Assets

Now, let’s consider a typical scenario. A person is arrested, and numerous items of personal property were seized from his or her home, office car, boat, airplane, etc. The criminal case concludes, and the person properly wants the property returned. In an overwhelming majority of instances, the person is entitled to have his or her property returned – quickly, unless the government can show the court that it has some legal justification for continuing to hold the property.

The seizure of personal property by government officials often causes great harm to the owner of the property, who is deprived of the property for months or even years. If you are such a person, retaining the services of a competent and experienced criminal defense lawyer in Miami who is knowledgeable in federal criminal law and procedure can often get your property returned quickly.
