Protecting your rights and assets in civil and criminal forfeitures

The government may have the power to seize any assets that were used in the commission of a crime or proceeds derived from certain criminal activities — including cars, homes and bank accounts — but you also have protection when the government attempts to do so. As an experienced and skilled criminal defense law firm, we have achieved positive outcomes for our clients by applying all possible defenses in civil and criminal forfeiture cases. We have been involved in a number of cases involving defense against forfeiture, including one of the largest civil forfeiture cases in U.S. history against the accounts of the former Prime Minister of Ukraine in Washington, D.C. federal court.

In public and political life, reputation is everything — so when a client comes to us for help in defending against corruption allegations, we take an aggressive approach from the outset. Our focus is on dissuading the government from pressing criminal charges, and we have a strong record of success. Our clients have included state and federal judges, state and federal elected officials, and labor leaders. We recently helped persuade the government not to press charges in an investigation of public corruption charges involving California State Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata.
