Asset Forfeiture Law in the United States collects in one place all of the law on administrative, civil and criminal forfeiture procedure, including the changes made in 2006. This handy one volume treatise serves as resource to anyone needing a comprehensive discussion of any of the recurring and evolving forfeiture issues that arise daily in federal practice.

Asset forfeiture has become a routine part of federal criminal law enforcement. The federal law enforcement agencies, including the DEA, the FBI, the IRS, and the agencies of the Department of Homeland Security, initiate tens of thousands of administrative forfeiture cases every year, and federal prosecutors file civil and criminal forfeiture actions in federal courts in thousands of cases as well. Overall, in each of the last few fiscal years, the Department of Justice alone has recovered more than $1.5 billion in criminally-derived property. This law enforcement activity has naturally generated a deluge of case law from the federal courts. New forfeiture cases are decided almost daily, making it difficult for the courts themselves, as well as practitioners, to keep current. The treatise and its supplement organize all of the case law, as well as recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure, topically and in a sequence that mirrors the development of an asset forfeiture case from the beginning of an investigation through trial.
