Has a restraining order been put on your property in relation to an alleged criminal offence? We can assist
In Victoria there are a number of serious offences, predominantly relating to dealing drugs in a commercial quantity, that will trigger an application from the Crown to initially restrain and then forfeit your property, including but not limited to your house, car and money. This is termed asset confiscation. Our criminal defence lawyers have experience representing clients faced with potential assest confiscation and restraining order applications in the County Court. We have asset confiscation lawyers capable of assisting at offices located in the Melbourne CBD, Ringwood, Frankston, Dandenong and Moorabbin areas.
Dont ignore your notification by the Crown:
If you ignore the official application your property will be forfeited. It is critical that you seek legal advice from experienced asset confiscation solicitors and respond via affidavit to any action being taken against your property. If you do not the consequences could be serious.
We have handled a large number of these matters and in many cases we have been successful in protecting property from seizure. The critical aspect to responding to these applications is a prepared and well considered response.
If you have a pending asset restraining order or assest confiscation application against your belongings or property don’t hesitate to call our criminal law firm urgently so we can assist you in formulating a response. Our asset confiscation lawyers can help you from one of many offices throughout Melbourne.
