What are Asset Forfeitures?

Asset forfeiture is a form of confiscation of assets by the state, and the purpose of it is to stop criminal activity from further occurring. The seized assets or property are alleged to be aiding the crimes, which is why law enforcement feels it necessary to remove them from the person in question. This happens most commonly in regards to drug charges, though the results are not always fair. As the parameters are incredibly vague, exuberant amounts of money may be seized as they may be alleged to be earned through criminal activity involving drugs--even if this isn’t the case.

If you have had your assets unfairly forfeited, you have rights. During this process, you may lose hard-earned money and property, as it is nearly impossible for the government to have accurate information regarding your private assets and property. Presuming that anything you own was used to commit a crime can lead to many unfair seizures led by false facts and assumptions. Law enforcement may attempt to take something of yours that has nothing to do with the allegations, simply as part of what they consider is a lawful asset forfeiture proceeding.

During asset forfeitures, officials may force you to forfeit certain valuables such as money, cars, homes, bank accounts, or even sentimental items such as jewelry or other personal assets. We at the Christopher P. Cavazos Law Firm, PLLC believe you shouldn’t have to give up the property or assets you have rightfully earned. Allegations don’t hold up as proof, and that is the key element we will strive to prove in a court of law. We want to prevent asset forfeiture from occurring in the first place, because we know how devastating it can be to lose things that belong to you in the name of a crime you didn’t commit.
