Asheville Lawyers For Civil Asset Forfeiture

Under civil asset forfeiture laws, the government can seize the property of private citizens and sell the property to fund agency budgets — all without even filing a formal criminal charge.

In these situations, the government is required to prove that the property is subject to forfeiture. However, the law does provide protections to persons who have a legal interest in the property and who have not participated in illegal activity.
