Asset forfeiture is big business for local, state, and federal agencies. In 2016, the Treasury Executive Office for Asset Forfeiture (TEOAF) fund took in over over $1.55 billion in forfeitures and recoveries. Local agencies like DPS and the Tarrant County District Attorneys Office take in millions each year in forfeitures. Both locally and nationwide, attorneys contest these seizures infrequently. On average, our firm has recovered or prevented the forfeiture of nearly six million dollars a year for our clients.
The numbers below do not include property worth over $1 million, a home, and numerous vehicles we recovered for our clients.
