Asset Forfeiture

Civil forfeiture is one of the most shocking and devastating tools at the disposal of state and federal prosecutors. Civil forfeiture laws allow law enforcement agencies to take property from citizens even if no charges are ever filed. In fact, in 81 percent of instances where law enforcement agencies seize money and property from a citizen, no involved party is ever charged with a crime. For the remainder, prosecutors love to use the seized money and property as bargaining chips for their related criminal prosecutions.

Fighting a forfeiture action is often a beat-the-clock situation. Many people who would be able to recover thousands of dollars or more in forfeited cash simply do not file their objections in time and then are precluded by law from objecting. The Eichner Law Firm is uniquely situated to represent clients in these situations.

Bolstering the firm's expertise in this area is former IRS Special Agent and Certified Fraud Examiner David Riordon, who brings with him a specialized knowledge of the inner workings of federal asset forfeitures. Together with our team of attorneys, investigators, and technology specialists, the Eichner Law Firm is well positioned to successfully fight civil forfeitures and any subsequent criminal prosecutions.
