ASSET FORFEITURE ATTORNEY

Why Does the Government Do This?

In order to curtail criminal activity, the Government engages in taking assets (Asset Forfeiture) which they believe was used in a criminal enterprise. In order to accomplish this goal, they can take tools of activity such as property, equipment, cash, and even products themselves, from the alleged criminals or the criminal organization, rendering the criminal organization powerless to operate.

Can I Fight My Asset Forfeiture Case?

If your Assets have been forfeited you may be asking yourself, can I do anything about this? You may be surprised to learn that these cases differ from normal criminal cases in that the Government can take your property without ANY KIND OF CONVICTION or even before you have a hearing!

Fortunately, we can help! And the time to contact our law firm is NOW! There are strict timelines that apply or you may not be able to recover your property in a asset forfeiture proceeding. These timelines apply both to the if a claim is going to be filled with a governmental agency or through the Court. If you want the best chances at recovering your property when your assets have been forfeited, we recommend the use of a lawyer. Our law office is familiar with asset forfeiture proceedings and will fight to recover your assets that have been unjustly taken.

To simplify the typical forfeiture process, the standard is not beyond a reasonable doubt (which is required in criminal cases) for the Government to prove that the property should be forfeited or seized. It is a lesser standard, which makes it easier for the Government to win. Therefore in asset forfeiture, the Government only needs to feel that the seized property is subject to forfeiture. Under asset forfeiture law the best strategy is to trace the proceeds to a legitimate purpose and not to a bank account or a relative.

Thank you Kirk. You guys are top notch. Kept me informed on everything that was going on with my case and I didn’t have to show up in court once. Got my case dismissed, now I can move on. I would recommend this law firm to anyone that wants a fair shake.
James
I had a difficult case that I was trying to fight from outside the state it was turned down twice. Once by the DA, and the second time by the judge, they continued to fight for me, and got the results I was looking for. They really do care about their clients and will not stop fighting till they get you the results you want.
Adrian A.
I couldn’t be happier with the service we received. From the very beginning I could tell that these lawyers knew a lot about DUI cases and throughout our court days they went above and beyond to make sure we were prepared for whatever might come our way. They definitely prepare you for the worst but get you the best. They covered every single base and we got an amazing outcome. I would recommend them any day.

Bachir
Good attorneys are hard to find! Bobby Shamuilian actually represented me with my best interest at heart. He gave it his all and because of that my case is being dismissed today. This firm is most definitely the best one to have if you need a criminal attorney. God forbid I ever need a criminal defense attorney, I would not even consider anyone else to represent me. Absolutely an amazing attorney!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
Christine
I had the pleasure of working with Kirk, and his office regarding my DUI case. I was originally charged with 2 felony counts (vehicle codes 23153A & 23153B). Kirk’s office was very professional and was able to negotiate with the District Attorney get my conviction reduced to a 1 count misdemeanor. Throughout the whole ordeal of two court dates, he and staff was available for any of my questions and concerns.
Tobias
Everyone in the office was helpful and professional. There was never a time when I thought they weren’t going to be there when we needed them. Their reputation and professionalism was the primary factor for using this law firm. Boy, were we impressed with all of the work they put into our case. Thank you to everyone in the office for always making us feel like we were your only clients!
Neckole S.
I found myself facing a DUI and scared to death. From the very start of the initial consultation, Attorneys Kirk Tarman and Bobby Shamuilian put me at ease. They handled my DMV Hearing and the court proceeding and truly fought for me. They were always attentive to my phone calls and emails, keeping me informed. They were able to get me a reduced charged so that I do not have a DUI on my record. I am so thankful to have retained them for my case.
Blaine
