Like most areas of the law, there is a grey area where they overlap. Criminal Law is no exception, which is why regardless of your legal issue, having an attorney well versed in criminal law is essential.
Being arrested or investigated can be a tragic experience for any family. The consequences of inaction and/or a mistake during this type of ordeal can be devastating. It is important to obtain representation as early as possible in this process. Often the right legal representation early on can prevent charges from ever being filed.
Once charges are filed, proper handling of the case is essential as many criminal convictions can trigger additional serious legal issues such as deportation, license suspensions, mandatory incarceration, mandatory probation, and more. In addition to the possibility of incarceration, the long-term consequences of a conviction may include the loss of the right to vote, ineligibility for elected office or professional licenses, and restrictions on the right to possess weapons.

Biggs & Greenslade Represents individuals who have had property or money seized by the government or law enforcement.
Asset Forfeiture is one of the areas of the law that is quasi-criminal in nature having characteristics founded in criminal law but procedurally, these cases are civil cases.
You normally don’t have to worry about losing your property or dealing with the court system unless you have been arrested for a crime. However, even if you haven’t been arrested, it’s possible for law enforcement to seize your property if it is either near or on the actual location where perceived criminal activity has taken place. This means you can lose your property without ever having been involved in a crime. When this happens, it’s important to have an experienced asset forfeiture lawyer. Contact Biggs & Greenslade for a free consultation concerning your rights to assets and money seized by the government.
