Miami Forfeiture Defense Lawyers
Put Experienced Advocacy in Your Corner
Under provisions contained in the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations
Act (RICO) and other state and local legislation, law enforcement officers
and the government can seize property and assets they believe have been
acquired through proceeds from illegal activity. Because forfeiture initiatives
are handled in civil rather than criminal court, even if you are acquitted
of all criminal charges you can still lose your home, car, or assets under a
RICO or forfeiture action connected with your criminal trial.
At Rothman & Associates, P.A., our attorneys impede government and
law enforcement seizures by intervening as early as possible. While our
lawyers work with forensic accountants and private investigators in collecting
evidence in support of our client, we also expose misconduct and constitutional
violations on the part of investigators and federal agents.
Forfeitures and Criminal Charges
Our Miami criminal defense lawyers at Rothman & Associates, P.A. represent
clients in property and asset forfeiture cases involving:
Asset and Property Seizure
Unfortunately, asset and property seizures are often used to intimidate
or coerce the accused into accepting a plea bargain. Prosecutors realize
if they seize someone's assets, home, or freeze his or her bank accounts,
they take away much-needed funds vital to paying for attorneys and mounting
a defense. Before you enter into discussions with prosecutors, it's
essential that you understand your rights and protections. Our office
will intervene on your behalf, filing charges against the government,
prosecutors, and investigators if necessary. We will allege harassment,
expose intimidation techniques, and relentlessly pursue the truth.
Our Miami forfeiture defense attorneys also have
the experience and the resources to challenge federal prosecutors in complex criminal cases prosecuted
under the RICO / racketeering or conspiracy statutes.
