It may seem counterintuitive to hire a criminal defense attorney for a civil forfeiture case, but oftentimes criminal attorneys have experience in forfeiture cases. Furthermore, a criminal case may follow a forfeiture case or may be going on at the same time. In addition, a forfeiture case is usually based upon a violation of a criminal law. The actions of the lawyer in the civil forfeiture case can affect the defense of the criminal case.
