The Law Office of Dunn & Harvell is very proud to say that we have been the driving force in the Second Judicial Circuit to get a procedure in place to help out victims of criminal asset forfeitures, also known as, as the Florida Contraband Forfeiture Act.
Together with local law enforcement agencies, Mr. Dunn petitioned our Circuit to adopt a procedure that was fair and complied with the new statutory language that was adopted in 2016, by the legislature.
It’s not many times that a criminal defense firm will agree with the Tallahassee Police Department and the Leon County Sheriff’s Office, but there was strong agreement that the safeguards that the legislature intended were codified in an administrative order.
Dunn & Harvell are happy to say that once this administrative order is adopted, on how the forfeiture process works; there will be uniformity and protections in all counties of the Second Judicial Circuit.
If you ever have any questions about any type of forfeiture resulting from a criminal act or think that someone else’s activity is putting your property at risk, please call us immediately.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as they say!
