Defending You Against Asset Forfeiture in Seattle
If you have been charged with drug trafficking, federal charges may just the beginning of your troubles. Everything you have worked hard for, including your home, bank accounts or car, may be investigated as well. If the Department of Justice can link the purchase any of your assets to the sale of cocaine or marijuana, or the carrying out of a drug crime, they may be subject to asset forfeiture.
If you have been charged with a serious drug crime, do not delay in calling an experienced criminal defense lawyer. In this country you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. You have the right to learned counsel throughout the lengthy legal process, and even beyond.
Don't give up that right. If you have been detained by law enforcement, you must verify your identity by giving them your name, address, phone number and Social Security number. That is all. Politely ask the officers ask for your phone call, and use it to call search and seizure defense attorney John Crowley at The Crowley Law Firm, PLLC in Seattle, Washington, at 206.388.2461.

Search and Seizure of Drug Money: the Raid
In pursuing its war against drugs, the Department of Justice has many tools in its arsenal, among them search and seizure of your bank accounts and freezing assets. If they say that money in your checking account resulted from the sale of an illegal drug, that account may be seized. If your home was paid for, even partially, from drug sales proceeds, or was used in a drug transaction, it too may be seized, later forfeited to the government, and eventually sold at auction.
If you are facing asset forfeiture, you need John Crowley, criminal defense lawyer with 13 years of solid experience. In a past win, the federal authorities wanted to seize a house owned by a client charged with drug crimes. Mr. Crowley was able to prove that the down payment for the home came from the sale of a boat, and that all mortgage payments were made with legitimate funds.
