What Is Civil Forfeiture?

Civil forfeiture actions are particularly problematic since they occur when law enforcement seizes assets from you as part of suspected criminal activity, yet you’re never charged with a crime. Such actions may seek forfeiture of automobiles, homes, and cash that are claimed to be instrumental in or product of criminal conduct. Technically, civil forfeiture actions are against the property, rather than the person, but such issues as whether the property was lawfully seized still apply. 

One flagrant example is the seizure of cash from individuals carrying money through TSA security check point or waiting for flights at domestic airports. Lapper defense lawyer Mr. Jocuns has been successful in securing the release of your property wrongfully seized and/or reaching negotiated settlements resulting in the return of substantial portions of cash that was seized.
