This New York Times article tells the story of why people need asset forfeiture lawyers. If the federal government can allege that your money is related to anything illegal (as the article explains, this includes consistently making cash deposits of less than $10,000), they can seize it. They do not need to file criminal charges or even believe your activities are suspicious. That means that while the government has your money, you have to prove that you’re innocent.

Do you want to believe we live in this kind of society? Maybe this will never happen to you, but you should still know that the federal government has assumed this kind of power.

If this has happened to you, you should call an attorney immediately. Call us today, before any deadlines pass, if more than $25,000 was seized at (512) 693-9LAW or use our Contact Us page.
