At an international airport, DEA agents surveyed a Jamaican national after he arrived on a domestic flight. Before he left the airport, those agents stopped and searched him. In a carry-on bag, they found $18,000 in United States currency. The DEA subsequently initiated forfeiture proceedings against the money. Prior to the government filing an anticipated civil forfeiture complaint in U.S. v. $18,000.00, Attorney David M. Dudley, through informal discussions, convinced the authorities to return all the money to his client.
Attorney Dudley has an excellent record of recovering money, houses, vehicles and other assets from the government on behalf of his clients, even in cases where substantial factual evidence and legal authority supports a potential forfeiture of those assets. If the government has seized your money or other property, Mr. Dudley may be able to help you recover all or most of it.
