Oakland, California – October 18, 2017. Automotive Defense Specialists, top attorneys involved in STAR and SMOG disputes with California’s Bureau of Automotive Repair, is proud to announce a newly updated contact page. The newly updated page makes it easier than ever for impacted SMOG / STAR Program station owners and/or technicians to request a consultation.
“When a technician or mechanic calls us about a STAR certification or SMOG program dispute with the Bureau of Automotive Repair, they may think that we’ve got the case covered at that point, but they would be wrong,” explained attorney William Ferreira of Automotive Defense Specialists. “The initial contact is about gathering information. Once we’ve done that part, we need to schedule a consult to discuss the case and how to move forward. We hope the update to the website makes the process easy.”

Contacting and Consulting a Bureau of Automotive Repair Defense Lawyer can be Easy as 1,2,3
Here is background to this release. If a SMOG station or STAR Program participant has received a letter from the Bureau of Automotive Repair, the reasons for the contact may vary. Low FPR (Follow Up Pass Rate) scores could have flagged the BAR to send a STAR invalidation letter, for example. Another scenario is that a visit from an undercover car may have resulted in a SMOG violation letter. Auto Shop Technicians and dealers may not have a lot of time to decipher the reason for receiving an accusation letter from the Bureau of Automotive Repair. Deadline dates and violation fees can cast a dark cloud over a busy shop owner’s day. Contacting a top auto defense attorney may be the first move, but it shouldn’t be the last.
For these reasons, Automotive Defense Specialists has recently announced a newly updated web page for persons requiring a contact or consult with an attorney. SMOG shop owners, dealers and STAR certified technicians may not realize contact with an auto defense attorney can involve several steps. The basic steps are noted below:
Step 1: Make Contact with a Bureau of Automotive Repair Defense Lawyer Step 2: Follow up with the defense attorney and schedule a consultation to review the potential case.
Step 3: The defense attorney begins the process of defending, as necessary, any actions taken by the Bureau of Automotive Repair
It may be important to remember that merely contacting a top attorney to defense against a BAR letter may not be the only action to take. Following up with a consult can ensure a SMOG shop or STAR Program participant has the best lawyer to fight the Bureau of Automotive Repair in every legal way possible.
