DWI/DUI Lawyer for Help with a Seized Vehicle in New Mexico
If you are faced with the prospect of having your vehicle seized after a drunk driving arrest, the criminal defense attorneys at the Law Office of Mark Keller will be your tireless advocates.
Vehicle Seizure and Forfeiture
Within Albuquerque, a second or subsequent DWI/DUI arrest or driving with a revoked license may be subject to seizure. When your vehicle is seized, you could face legal forfeiture.
Forfeiture is a legal proceeding to prove the vehicle is a nuisance. If the city succeeds in the suit, your vehicle will become the property of the city and will be sold at auction.
When your car is seized, you will be served a notice of vehicle seizure. You have 5 days from the date of the notice to request a hearing to fight the vehicle forfeiture. If you fail to respond to the notice, you automatically forfeit your vehicle.
