Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Good evening. I'll be assisting you with your question.
Is this forfeiture part of a criminal case against you?
No. I am in jail in Korea for a different reason. But I am involved with the money.
Is the government claiming this money is proceeds of a crime?
OK. Give me one second.
You need a white collar criminal defense lawyer.
The best place to find one in your situation is through one of the well established lawyer referral websites. I'd suggest using www.martindale.com or www.lawyers.com.
Both allow you to search for lawyers by practice area and location. They also both rate lawyers, so you can be sure you are getting quality representation.
If you get this done this week, the lawyer should be able to get a continuance filed in time.
Obviously, the sooner you can get it done, the better.
Glad to help.
Can I do anything else for you?
No. Thank you!
