If you have been convicted of a crime that can lead to confiscation you need expert confiscation, Proceeds of Crime Solicitors.
LP Evans are experienced in dealing with confiscation cases from the initial application through to enforcement.
Perhaps you have had your trial and you hoped the outcome would be positive. But now you have lost and the prosecution are saying you have a criminal lifestyle. They want to confiscate not just the money they say you made as a result of the crime but want to investigate all the money and assets you have.
In certain offences the prosecution can say that your wealth has come from a criminal lifestyle and apply to the court to confiscate assets you own. This can include your home, cars, and bank accounts. If you do not have the funds to pay it then you can be sent to prison in default of payment and still owe the money.
