It seems like a scene out of a movie: a hardworking person travels to buy or sell a vehicle, with cash in hand, when they are pulled over by the authorities. We’ve seen it before, where police stop the motorist on allegations of a minor traffic violation, but they do not take out their pad and write a ticket. Instead, they say the money will be payment for the fines they face. If that, or something similar, has happened to you, a Tulsa Asset Forfeiture Defense Lawyer can try to get what is legally yours back in your hands.
If you’ve been arrested for a crime and there’s cash found in your car, authorities may seize that money while they conduct their investigation. There have also been times when other personal property is confiscated as well. If that’s happened to you, it’s best to talk with one of our Tulsa Asset Forfeiture Defense lawyers.

A Tulsa Asset Forfeiture Defense Lawyer at our firm provides a free, confidential consultation to all first-time callers to help you understand your specific legal situation and discuss options to get your assets back.
How We Can Help
For the most part, authorities may seize cash on allegations of illegal drug activity. It might not stop at the cash, we’ve seen vehicles and other property seized in connection with allegations of prostitution, drunken driving and financial crimes.
In each case, if the seizure is conducted outside of a criminal proceeding, a Tulsa Asset Forfeiture Defense Lawyer can go to civil court to get back your property. You’ll have the best chance for prevailing in civil court when you are represented by a Tulsa Asset Forfeiture Defense Lawyer.
