California Cash Seizure


California Cash Seizure

California Cash Seizure:

California has a lot of Customs seizures as it is the home of many international ports on the coast. However, it also has its fair share of DEA seizures. Since the Drug Enforcement Administration is aware that California is a major port of drug activity, they are more attuned to people carrying large amounts of money even if it is legitimately earned and has a lawful intended purpose.

Whether you have money seized in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Oakland, Sacramento, or anywhere in between, Customs and DEA seizures are very challenging cases. Many tourist attractions such as Santa Monica Pier, Vineyards, or the beach can prove to be grounds for heavy surveillance as the DEA and other agencies know travelers may be carrying a lot of money. In order to reclaim your money, we need to prove that it was legitimately earned, and that you planned to use it for a legitimate, non-drug related purpose. Often, the only evidence that the Government presents in these cases is an unwitnessed drug alert to the cash. While this would never suffice to convict you of a crime, as we have discussed before in these type of cases the presumption is against you. Your money is basically guilty until proven innocent.

Since the presumption is against you, we have to play by the seizing agencies rules. You have the burden of proof so we need to provide as much information as possible to document the source and intended use of the seized funds. Additionally, we must be sure to meet the strict filing deadlines associated will all types of California Money Seizures.
