Forfeiture Lawyer - Wisconsin Forfeiture Lawyer - Madison Forfeiture
Most people are shocked to
find out the breadth of the government’s power to forfeit property.
What the government may take is virtually unlimited. Common items
include homes, land, cash, bank accounts, vehicles, antiques, jewelry,
boats and computers. More shocking, is the scant evidence the government sometimes has when it commences a forfeiture action. In
many cases where the government pursues forfeiture of property there is
no crime charged, indeed, there is not even probable cause sufficient to
charge a crime.
If your cash, bank
account, vehicle or other property, real estate, jewelry or other
property has been seized by state, local or federal law enforcement
officers, such as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Internal
Revenue Service (IRS) or Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), you
should immediately should contact an attorney who is experienced in
handling asset forfeiture cases. Forfeiture laws are complicated and
tricky, including strict deadlines. There are many technical mistakes
that even an attorney can make. The best course is to retain an
experienced forfeiture attorney immediately after the seizure of the
property or the service of notice of forfeiture.
