Particularly in drug-trafficking cases, the State or Federal government may file a separate civil action to seek the forfeiture of the profits or means of drug-dealing enterprises. This can include money, vehicles, or other personal property. When this happens, you have a right to contest whether that property stemmed from drug trafficking or was otherwise lawfully obtained. Our firm has successfully defended against these civil forfeiture proceedings, saving our clients tens of thousands of dollars in vehicles and other property. See, e.g. Racine County Case No. 11 CV 1861. If you face civil forfeiture tied to criminal charges, contact us immediately or you could lose your right to protect your property and assets.
