Asset Forfeiture Attorney in Los Angeles
When you have been charged with certain criminal offenses in Los Angeles, you may suffer forfeiture of your assets by the police. Some of these types of crimes can include drug charges, organized crime offenses and charges related to racketeering, which can include gambling, prostitution, robbery, extortion, arson, kidnapping and even murder. Although your property is not supposed to be forfeited unless you are convicted, many law enforcement officials will seize the property when you are arrested. To fight for your rights to your property, discuss your case with our experienced criminal defense lawyers in Los Angeles. At Cron, Israels & Stark we are well-versed in making a strong case to defend the underlying charges and pursue the return of your seized assets.
The criminal offenses that result in property forfeiture can lead to officials seizing such valuables as jewelry, money, cars, homes, bank accounts and various other personal assets. The purpose of this law was originally to cover the expense of drug enforcement and racketeering activities, but has become abused by law enforcement. When your bank accounts and all of your assets are seized, it can become extremely difficult to pay your regular expenses, increasing the complications of such a case.
