Fighting a Forfeiture by WDFW

The Washington Department of Fish and WIldlife has recently been stepping up its efforts to seize or forfeit the trucks, or boats, or weapons of sportsmen charged with even the most minor fish and game violations. Steve Graham is an attorney with a history of fighting and suing WDFW to win the return of these items. To perform a forfeiture, the Department of Fish and Wildlife has to follow technical rules. If the department does not follow these rules, the property must be returned. It is possible to win your attorneys' fees back from the game department if you win and the court finds that the seizure was not "substantially justified."

It is important to meet the deadline of contesting the forfeiture of your property. It is critical that you contact an attorney right away to learn about your legal rights. Mr. Graham is a criminal defense attorney will a history of fighting for the rights of citizens against WDFW. Mr. Graham has handled forfeitures and has done numerous jury trials on allegations of misdemeanor and felony cases involving game violations. Mr. Graham is a former prosecuting attorney and consequently knows how the government goes about trying to prove its case.
