Protecting Your Assets From Forfeiture

You may not be aware of the fact your drug charge may lead to penalties and fines, even before a conviction is made. Many times, your personal assets and property are seized by the police as evidence or as proceeds of crime. At Bayne Sellar Ertel Carter, we have helped several clients with their drug offence charges along with protecting their private property.

Our lawyers can help you navigate the criminal justice system, which may seem overwhelming and confusing. Depending upon the facts of your case, we will research, investigate and vigorously defend the charges against you. The federal government has the ability to seize and forfeit your private property including large amounts of money, vehicle or other modes of transportation, and real estate including your family home. Our lawyers have the experience in successfully opposing such applications.

The Ontario government may also seek to forfeit your property under the Civil Remedies Act, which is separate from the federal criminal proceedings. Our Ottawa defence lawyers can skillfully and simultaneously handle both your criminal and civil matter while offering you strategic guidance. Our clients come to us from all over eastern Ontario.
