If you ever find yourself the victim of the government overstepping their bounds, it is vital that you protect your rights and possibly your property by speaking with a skilled attorney. For example, a 40-year-old man had loaned an out-of-state family member a large sum of money and to repay the debt, his relative shipped him a package, containing $7,200 in cash. When the money was in transit, the package raised attention and law enforcement was alerted, who confiscated the man’s money because they believed it was the proceeds from illegal activity.

The man understandably wanted his property returned and contacted Hessler Law, PC and retained experienced Indianapolis criminal defense lawyer Sean Hessler to handle the matter. Attorney Hessler acted quickly for his client and met with the prosecutor to find a solution. After extensive negotiations, Hessler secured the vast majority of the funds returned to his client.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
