Asset Forfeiture Defense Lawyer

Many people are unaware of civil asset forfeiture or seizure laws until it happens to them. Asset forfeiture statutes allow law enforcement agencies to seize assets with little or no evidence against the owner of the property. This occurs if they believe they may have been used in illegal activity. Once assets have been seized, it can require legal action on the part of the owner to retrieve their property. Dwayne L. Brown is an experienced criminal defense attorney in Atlanta who handles asset forfeiture cases to recover seized property.

Civil asset forfeiture can occur with almost any type of asset. It can be vehicles, cash, homes and even entire back accounts. In many cases, the law enforcement agencies keep the assets they seize if the owners are convicted of a crime. However, there are many other instances where the owner of the property is not convicted or even charged with a crime, yet their property is still held under the asset forfeiture laws.

Retrieving Property Seized by Law Enforcement

Under civil forfeiture laws, if law enforcement has evidence that an asset was used in a crime, they can retain the property. However, there are instances where innocent property owners have their assets seized, even though they were not involved in a crime. Retrieving this property is not simple, but it is possible. There are time limitations and other regulations that must be met through the legal system to restore assets to owners. This can make it difficult to do without an experienced attorney who understands asset forfeiture laws.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
