Vehicle Forfeiture

Duluth Vehicle Forfeiture Lawyer | Duluth DWI Attorney

Vehicle forfeiture can be devastating because it means the vehicle you have worked hard to have is seized due to the belief that it was used in the commission of a crime. The most common crime associated with vehicle forfeiture is DWI. If this is something you are facing, it is your right to challenge the forfeiture with the help of a Duluth vehicle forfeiture lawyer.

At Andrew, Bransky, & Poole, P.A., we can ensure deadlines are met and that a valid argument is made as to why you should regain possession of your vehicle. When you have a Duluth DWI attorney in your corner who is well-versed in vehicle forfeiture, you have a much better chance of being able to keep your vehicle than you would otherwise.

Fighting Vehicle Forfeiture

There are different reasons for vehicle forfeiture. Those reasons include:

  • Previous DWI convictions
  • Causing an accident while intoxicated that caused injuries to another person
  • Driving with a suspended, canceled, or revoked license at the time of the offense
  • Having a child under the age of 16 in the vehicle or having a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .20 or above at the time of the arrest

If any of these are believed to exist at the time of the alleged offense, then the forfeiture process can begin. This can be very difficult when you rely on your automobile to go back and forth to work, run errands, take kids to and from activities, or go to school. This is why you need to enlist the help of a Duluth vehicle forfeiture lawyer.

Guidance Through The Forfeiture Process

Once the state takes possession of the vehicle, you are given notice of how much time you have to petition the court for the return of your vehicle. If you don’t respond by the deadline, you could lose your rights to the vehicle. If you petition for its return, it doesn’t guarantee that you will get it back. With the help of an attorney, the chances of getting it back increase.

A solid case can be made through aggressive representation as to why you need your vehicle back. This is not a process you should face alone. We will give you the guidance you need throughout the process, ensure deadlines are met, and be a force to be reckoned with from start to finish.

Vehicle forfeiture is a case separate from a DWI case, but it is possible to get your vehicle back with the help of a DWI attorney experienced in vehicle forfeiture matters. Just because the vehicle has been seized doesn’t mean you have to be without it.
