Protect Your Assets from Forfeiture

If your cash, bank accounts, vehicles, real estate, jewelry or other property have been seized by state, local or federal law enforcement officers, such as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), or U.S. Customs and Border Enforcement (ICE), and the federal government is seeking to forfeit your property, you should immediately contact an attorney who is experienced in handling asset forfeiture cases. 

You should not try to handle the forfeiture matter yourself without first consulting with a forfeiture defense attorney. There are many technical mistakes that can be made by you or even by an attorney not experienced in forfeiture cases, which could result in the immediate forfeiture of your property.

Eric Honig will provide you with a free initial telephone consultation to answer your questions and help try to avoid losing your property to the federal government. His contact information is below. Do not delay. Do not allow your property to be forfeited without getting legal advice.


Forfeiture defense attorney ERIC HONIG is one of the foremost specialists in the country handling the defense of federal asset forfeiture cases, and one of only a handful who formerly prosecuted federal forfeitures for the U.S. government. Although his office is based in the Los Angeles area, he defends asset forfeiture cases throughout the country.

Many of attorney ERIC HONIG's cases come from referrals by other attorneys, since the proper defense of forfeiture cases requires specialized knowledge and skills derived from various legal areas. These include criminal procedure, i.e., informant disclosure rules; Fourth and Fifth Amendment exclusionary rules; substantive state and federal criminal, drug, money laundering and other laws; state and federal forfeiture laws; state property laws; the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Supplemental Rules for Certain Admiralty & Maritime Claims, including in rem jurisdiction; and state and federal criminal and civil tax consequences, which are sometimes implicated in these cases.

Attorneys without sufficient experience or expertise in handling asset forfeiture cases can fall into legal traps or be intimidated by government attorneys. Eric Honig has 28 years of experience both in prosecuting and defending asset forfeiture cases. It is important to go with an asset forfeiture defense specialist.

ERIC HONIG has been practicing law for more than 36 years, is admitted to the bars of California, New York and Louisiana, and also represents plaintiffs in various class action cases, many of which relate to property seizures. Details of his experience and expertise can be reviewed by clicking on his resume, above, and his direct contact information is listed below.
