Civil Forfeiture Attorneys in Savannah

Fighting to Regain What Is Rightfully Yours

There is a huge problem stirring in Georgia: civil forfeiture and how some law enforcement agencies are abusing it. Most people are aware of search and seizure in criminal cases – police take and hold items suspected to be related to a crime – but the act of civil forfeiture requires no criminal violation. Law enforcement can seize just about anything they want without filing charges or seeking a conviction.

On the surface, there are obvious major issues with civil forfeiture and how it can violate your rights, yet things get worse. The property seized in this way may be directly used by the police department in any way they see fit. In some cases, money has been taken and used to make repairs to jailhouses and replace or purchase equipment that was not included in their budget.

Civil rights violations like this are happening every day in Georgia. This is where our Savannah criminal defense attorneys step in.

Protecting Your Rights When Law Enforcement Will Not

The importance of upholding your basic civil rights and standing up to abusive law enforcement agencies cannot be stressed enough. If allowed to go unchecked, the situation in Georgia could rapidly devolve into a state of total civil disrepair. Attorney Cris Schneider has made it clear that he is ready and willing to step up to the plate and fight for the rights of his clients, even if it means taking on powerful government agencies to do so.

The idea of challenging law enforcement head-on can certainly seem intimidating to those unfamiliar with their rights and the legal system. You can rest assured that the professional team at The Schneider Law Firm can handle your case for you. With a long history of success handling some of the most complicated criminal defense cases, we are unfazed by tough civil forfeiture cases.

Reclaiming Your Property after Civil Forfeiture

Civil forfeiture does not actually require any criminal act to take place and law enforcement does not have to file any charges. Consequently, you do not inherit the rights the criminally accused are granted upon arrest. In the end, this can make dealing with civil forfeiture even more difficult.

With our Savannah civil forfeiture defense lawyers on your side, however, you may be able to reclaim your property before the police start to use it for their own personal gain.

Property and assets that are frequently seized through civil forfeiture include:

  • Cash
  • Cars
  • Homes
  • Lawfully owned weapons
  • Boats
  • RVs

The unfortunate truth is that the list of items the police may seize without warning can go on and on. Virtually anything they deem “worthy of civil forfeiture” can be collected, and they do not have to provide ample reasoning as to why they took it in the first place.

Have you been the victim of unfair civil forfeiture? Take control with The Schneider Law Firm! Call (912) 385-0854 today to schedule a consultation.
