About the Author

Stefan D. Cassella is one of the federal Government s leading experts on asset forfeiture law. As a federal prosecutor, he has been litigating asset forfeiture cases since the late 1980's and is now the Deputy Chief of the Justice Department s Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section. Mr. Cassella handled the forfeiture in the largest forfeiture case ever brought by the United States the forfeiture of $1.2 billion in assets from the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), was the principal author of much of the federal forfeiture legislation, including the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 (CAFRA), and the applicable sections of the Federal Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure, and is the author of numerous law review articles on asset forfeiture and money laundering. He teaches asset forfeiture procedure at the Federal National Advocacy Center at the University of South Carolina, and has given numerous presentations on the subject at Cambridge University and other institutions. In the 1980s, Mr. Cassella was Senior Counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. He has a J.D. from Georgetown University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Physics from Cornell University. This book was writtent in the author's private capacity as a lawyer, and the book does not in any way constitute an official statement of the law or policy or otherwise reflect the views of the United States Department of Justice and the Section of Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering.

Format: Hardcover
I'm not an attorney--but I desperately needed to get an understanding of this area of law. There's nothing like
have our Government seize your property to get you motivated! Step by step build up to help the average reader
gain an understanding of what your rights are if this happens to you. (and sadly, there's not much you can do---
but wait and wait and wait often for years in cases. Highly recommended, even if you do have an attorney representing you, and would also be helpful to attorneys as well.

You should be ashamed of yourself. You teach corrupt government officials how to steal from citizens that are never convicted of a crime. Yet here you are making lots of money teaching more of them to steal.
