Asset Forfeiture Section


The Asset Forfeiture Section prosecutes civil and criminal asset forfeiture matters arising from a wide range of federal offenses.  While a majority of the cases in the section involve narcotics and money laundering violations, the section also handles significant cases in such diverse areas as bank and health care fraud, smuggling, gambling and child exploitation.
