Asset Forfeiture Defense Attorney

Do Not Let Them Take Your Car, Cash or Other Assets

If your assets were seized during a raid, it is important to talk to a criminal defense lawyer promptly. There is a narrow window of time within which to post bond and file a claim to attempt to recover seized assets.

At the same time that a prosecutor is filing proceedings against you, you should have a defense lawyer hard at work protecting your rights. I am David G. Moore, in asset forfeiture defense lawyer who can help provide you with an aggressive defense. I am available to advocate and fight for your rights if assets have been taken inappropriately. I am former assistant attorney general and an experienced defense attorney.

Defending Against Drug Charges and Asset Seizure

Statutes allow for law enforcement to seize assets under certain circumstances. The most common situation that triggers asset forfeiture is in connection with a drug crime arrest. Forfeited assets in a drug bust often include:

  • Any cash found in close proximity to drugs that police claim to have discovered
  • Any purchased items that police believe were obtained with drug dealing proceeds
  • Anything that law enforcement believe was used as a "container" for illegal substances, such as a suitcase, a car, a boat or an airplane, to name a few examples

Perhaps another person's drugs were found in your car. Even if you had no knowledge that the drugs were there, you need a lawyer on your side to help protect your rights — and get your car back. I aim to help clients recover their seized assets as soon as possible.
