A: You should contact, and hire an attorney, immediately. Often times, police officers use a simple telephone call, as a ploy to get you into their office for an informal interrogation, and possible arrest.
Q: What is a trial fee, and does Temani charge one?
A: A trial fee is an additional fee, that is charged, if you decide that you want to proceed to trial in your case. The trial fee must be paid before your case is set for trial, or any pre-trial motions are filed.
Temani only charges a trial fee for certain cases. Because each case is different, we cannot determine if a trial fee would apply in your case until we are hired.
Q: The police took my money, and sent me a paper in the mail. What should I do? Do I need to hire a lawyer?
A: Yes, you need to hire an attorney. The government or state has initiated asset forfeiture proceedings against you, in an effort to keep your money. Time is of the essence, you need to hire an attorney as soon as possible.
Q: What is asset forfeiture
A: Simply put, asset forfeiture is when your property (ex. money, car, home, jewelry, etc.), is seized by the state or the government, because they believe that it has been used in the commission of a crime, was intended to be used in the commission of a crime, to further criminal activity, or is proceeds of certain criminal activity.
