Getting Your Property Back In Your Hands
The State of Indiana has the right to confiscate property and assets that it suspects are connected to illegal activity. Many people do not realize this is legal until they have lost their property to civil forfeiture.
In the face of such a difficult challenge, DeVries Law Office in Indianapolis can defend you. Attorney DeVries has successfully helped many clients halt forfeiture proceedings and recover their assets. As a military veteran, founding attorney Scott DeVries feels strongly about protecting your constitutional rights from unlawful asset forfeiture.
Asset Forfeiture: What To Know
Civil asset forfeiture refers to the right of the state to seize any property or other assets that they suspect you gained unlawfully or used to commit a crime. Some common examples include:
- Cars and other vehicles
- Prescription medications
Both State and Federal government have the authority to seize and forfeit property and other assets they claim you gained unlawfully or used to commit a crime. Unfortunately, most people do not understand the laws surrounding these situations. They may miss crucial deadlines or don’t defend themselves and subsequently lose their property. If your property is seized, it’s important to work with a lawyer who understands your rights so you can fight to get your property back.
