Put Experienced Advocacy in Your Corner
Under provisions contained in the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and other state and local legislation, law enforcement officers and the government can seize property and assets they believe have been acquired through proceeds from illegal activity. Because forfeiture initiatives are handled in civil rather than criminal court, even if you are acquitted of all criminal charges you can still lose your home, car, or assets under a RICO or forfeiture action connected with your criminal trial.
At Rothman & Associates, P.A., our attorneys impede government and law enforcement seizures by intervening as early as possible. While our lawyers work with forensic accountants and private investigators in collecting evidence in support of our client, we also expose misconduct and constitutional violations on the part of investigators and federal agents.

Our Miami criminal defense lawyers at Rothman & Associates, P.A. represent clients in property and asset forfeiture cases involving:
- Drug possession

- White collar crime
- Money laundering
- Insurance fraud
- Health care fraud
Asset and Property Seizure
Unfortunately, asset and property seizures are often used to intimidate or coerce the accused into accepting a plea bargain. Prosecutors realize if they seize someone’s assets, home, or freeze his or her bank accounts, they take away much-needed funds vital to paying for attorneys and mounting a defense. Before you enter into discussions with prosecutors, it’s essential that you understand your rights and protections. Our office will intervene on your behalf, filing charges against the government, prosecutors, and investigators if necessary. We will allege harassment, expose intimidation techniques, and relentlessly pursue the truth.
Our Miami forfeiture defense attorneys also have the experience and the resources to challenge federal prosecutors in complex criminal cases prosecuted under the RICO / racketeering or conspiracy statutes.
