Birmingham Civil Forfeitures/Seizures Attorneys

Protecting Your Property & Your Rights

In the state of Alabama, the government may seize your property if the property itself is suspected of being involved in a crime. This can include vehicles, cash, homes, and more—and law enforcement can take this property without ever charging or convicting you, the property owner, with a crime. However, there are ways you can fight back, and the Birmingham civil forfeitures/seizures attorneys at Jaffe, Hanle, Whisonant & Knight, P.C. have the experience to help. Our firm will aggressively advocate on your behalf, navigating the complex process of legally regaining your property for you and answering all of your questions along the way.

We Can Help you Fight Back After Civil Seizure

Civil forfeiture can happen to anyone—all it takes is for law enforcement to contend that your property was involved in a crime.

Common examples of civil forfeiture include:

  • Law enforcement seizing your car after someone else is arrested for DUI in your vehicle
  • Having cash confiscated without being charged for any crime
  • The IRS seizing your bank account in its entirety on the basis of “suspicious activity”
  • Home forfeiture after someone else conducts suspected illegal activities

Civil forfeiture is historically subject to extensive abuse by law enforcement and the government. If you are a victim of civil seizure in Birmingham, the attorneys at Jaffe, Hanle, Whisonant & Knight, P.C. can help. We have the necessary experience, skills, and resources to fight back when your property is forfeited.
