You may have heard of the phrase “policing for profit.” This does not mean just writing speeding tickets. It also includes a much more concerning law enforcement practice called asset forfeiture. To learn more about this practice and why it is so controversial, check out this excellent article detailing the history of asset forfeiture. It might surprise you to find out that Joe Biden played a significant role in ramping up asset forfeiture efforts.

Luckily, the practice of asset forfeiture has been curtailed somewhat by the recent Supreme Court decision in Timbs v. Indiana. If you have been a victim of asset forfeiture and would like help getting your property returned, give us a call at 812-567-3848.
