Over the past 5 years Mr. Ferreira has personally taken over 100 cases to verdict in front of a Judge at the Office of Administrative Hearings.
Our firm has also stipulated or settled with favorable terms after producing our own discovery for our clients in over 250 cases. This is all we do.
As for as automotive experience is concerned, Mr. Ferreira is a seasoned veteran from complete engine rebuilds to welding roll cages, performing restoration work on muscle cars, R&R work, and diagnosing modern computerized vehicles. Diagnostic theory is also one of his specialties, understanding this is the difference between a winning and losing case.
He has seen the industry become more specialized over the years and has kept up with new technologies. You always need to be one step ahead of these agencies.
After completing his studies at Berkeley, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Legal Studies, with a special focus on Philosophy, Mr. Ferreira attended the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law.
Mr. Ferreira also took a special interest in clinical programs; preferring to litigate in front of juries, grand juries, and participating in moot court programs, understanding a litigator is a different type of attorney.
Why Automotive Defense Law?
Mr. Ferreira felt this area of law, above all else, was the area where he could help a sect of the community that had not been represented before. Mr. Ferreira felt his knowledge in the automotive arena would help explain to judges and juries why the Bureau or DMV was misrepresenting the industry to discipline a license or prosecute a technician without merit. Mr. Ferreira decided to fight for those who were underrepresented and persecuted. He will continue this fight until the day he dies.
