Protecting Your Rights
At Hertz Schram, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of people who have been accused of crimes. For more than three decades, our trial attorneys have stood up for clients in Detroit and the surrounding parts of Michigan and throughout the country. We are a dedicated criminal defense team that knows the steps to take to help our clients successfully navigate through forfeiture proceedings.
Property forfeiture can occur for many reasons, such as when the property is suspected to have been used to facilitate a crime. Examples include cars being used to transport stolen property after a burglary or houses or commercial buildings in which drugs are stored.
Another reason for forfeiture is when property was allegedly acquired with the proceeds gained from illegal activity. Examples of this are boats being purchased with money gained from illegal Internet gambling or homes bought with the proceeds of a money laundering operation.
Our lawyers can help you successfully and aggressively defend against a civil complaint that has caused or will cause your assets to be forfeited. Among the types of property that we have defended from forfeiture are houses, cars, motorcycles, bank accounts, cash, boats, vacation homes and jewelry.
