Criminal Asset Forfeiture

Texas Criminal Asset Forfeiture Defense Lawyer

Under federal and state law, any personal assets used in the act of committing or facilitating a crime, or proven to have been obtained from the proceeds of a crime, may be forfeited to law enforcement officials. Asset forfeiture is generally as much of a civil litigation matter as it is a criminal law matter. The government must only show "probable cause" in order to sue for confiscation. In short, you don't need to be indicted or found guilty of any crime to have your property taken. If the government successfully sues to seize your property, it is up to you to mount a successful lawsuit to get it back.
