Forfeiture of Assets in Phoenix
Defend Your Rights and Your Property
For a large number of individuals who are convicted of a crime, it is common
to find that they had some kind of gain in terms of money or other assets.
If these were a direct result of the crime committed - such as money gained
from theft - they can be subject to forfeiture and seizure by the government.
The same can be said for assets or items that were used during the commission
of the crime.
At Jason D. Lamm Attorney at Law, our
Phoenix criminal defense lawyer has more than 20 years of experience helping individuals facing asset
forfeiture. We know that there are times when law enforcement officers
and government agencies may try to seize more than just what was used
in a crime, and we stand up for your rights.

confidential case evaluation.
When the Government Seize My Assets?
This usually occurs to individuals who are suspected of or have been found
guilty of what we would call a white collar crime – one involving
money laundering, embezzlement, fraud, or another means of theft. It’s
the aim of the federal government to “take the profit out of crime”.
The Government Will Attempt to Seize Property if They Believe:
- The property in question was attained as a result of the crimes committed
- The property in question was used to commit the crime
