Customs Seizures

Customs Seizure Attorneys

The customs seizure attorneys at Peter S. Herrick PA help assist countless individuals in the United States in the filing of petitions that challenge the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), DEA, FBI, and USPS after they have seized your goods or currency due to a violation of customs law or regulation.

After a seizure, the department of Fines, Penalties, and Forfeitures (FP&F) will then forward you a “notice of seizure” as well as an “election of proceedings” form. This form outlines your four available options. You can file a petition with customs, offer in compromise, abandon the seized goods, or take judicial action.

At Peter S. Herrick PA, our customs seizure attorneys have over 55 years of experience navigating customs and trade laws and regulations. We can help you determine which course of action is best for you, though the most common approach involves the filing of a petition.
