Forfeiture

Forfeiture Law in NYC

Our Team Can Defend Your Rights

When the New York state or federal government believes that certain property has been used in the commission of a crime or was obtained from the proceeds of a crime, they can seize that property. Seized property is frequently believed to be the result of drug crimes or certain white collar crimes. A civil forfeiture action determines whether you can reclaim your property or have lost possession of it to the government forever.

Seized property can often include, but is not limited to:

  • Vehicles
  • Homes
  • Boats
  • Bank accounts
  • Personal items
