Civil Forfeiture/Asset Seizure
When the government seizes funds and attempts to forfeit them, it does so in a civil law proceeding.
Do Campo & Thornton’s attorneys have experience helping those whose assets have been seized by the government. When assets have been seized, it is important to act fast. We have successfully represented clients by intervening prior to the institution of the forfeiture lawsuit, negotiating the release of the funds at issue. And, we have experience in defending civil forfeiture actions and asserting clients’ claims to assets.
In all such cases, having a law firm well-versed in both the criminal law and civil litigation, such as do Campo & Thornton, is crucial. We also understand the nuances involved in the coordination of a civil forfeiture and criminal defense, and stand ready to fight the cases against our clients, on all fronts, in the most effective manner.
