Civil Asset Forfeiture, which is sometimes called “Civil Seizure,” is a controversial legal practice where law enforcement officers take property from people who they suspect are involved with crime or other illegal activity, without the police having to charge the property owners with any wrongdoing at all. In many cases, property is seized without anyone being arrested.

If the police have seized your property in a Civil Asset Forfeiture, Dallas attorney Bret Schmidt can help get it back.

It doesn’t have to be that way. You do have valuable rights to your property, whether or not you are charged with a crime. But you have to act quickly. You will lose your rights to your property if you don’t take the correct actions before the legal deadline.
