In a federal criminal case, federal prosecutors often bring a separate asset forfeiture proceeding in which the government tries to take your property such as your cash, bank account balance, vehicles, computers or your home on the basis that the property was allegedly connected to criminal activity. Asset forfeitures are another reason why it is so important to seek legal representation from an attorney with federal criminal defense experience when you are facing federal criminal charges.
The federal government is increasingly relying on asset forfeitures because many criminal defense attorneys treat asset forfeitures as secondary to the related criminal charges and fail to contest the forfeiture. At Conaway & Strickler, P.C., we are committed to defending and protecting our clients’ rights, liberty and property. Accordingly, in addition to preparing a strong defense to any criminal charges, we provide effective representation in asset forfeiture matters.
