Protecting your property rights from state or federal forfeiture


State and federal law allows law enforcement officials to seize property that they believe may have been related to the commission of a crime.  Known as forfeiture, this happens frequently in drug cases. The police  seize your car because it might have been used to transport drugs or have been purchased with the proceeds of drug sales.  If your property was seized because you were arrested and charged with a crime, you need an experienced criminal attorney. Call Harry L. Harper in Panama City,  Florida to schedule a free initial consultation. Talk with him about  recovering your property.


Mr. Harper  has been practicing criminal law as a prosecutor and defense lawyer for  more than 40 years. During that time he has developed a keen  understanding of the issues related to forfeiture in criminal matters.  He uses this knowledge to represent clients in court proceedings to retrieve their property taken in a home or car seizure.


In addition to being common in drug cases, forfeitures often accompany charges of money laundering, conspiracy, or racketeering. Whether you are facing one of these allegations or other white collar charges, Mr. Harper may be able to  help you get your assets back. Even if you are convicted of the  underlying charge, it may be possible to recover your assets if you can  demonstrate that they were not used in the commission of the crime.  Additionally, property may be confiscated without filing the accompanying charges. Mr. Harper can assist in these situations as well.
