If facing serious criminal charges, such as drug supply or trafficking, the State of Queensland may seek to freeze and confiscate your assets. Those assets may include your bank accounts, real estate, vehicles, shares or any other asset of value.
While having a base in criminal law, the confiscation proceedings are actually a civil litigation process which must be commenced by the State of Queensland in the Supreme Court.
Our firm, specialising in both criminal law and litigation, has dealt with many confiscation proceedings and has successfully represented parties and negotiated settlements with the State of Queensland.
If you are served with an Application seeking to freeze your assets, we urge you to contact our experienced litigation team straight away.
