Forfeiture Lawyers in New York City

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:

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