Seeking the Return of Seized Property for Clients in British Columbia
In situations where I must request the return of seized money, I will work to prove that you have a legitimate claim to that money. Where appropriate, I will also craft an argument that the police cannot prove that the money seized represents crime proceeds. If negotiations are unsuccessful, I will pursue a court application to have your money or property returned to you.
