Here is the background for the release. Unfortunately, an adversarial relationship has emerged between California’s Bureau of Automotive Repair and the many SMOG shops and auto repair technicians who service the needs of consumers across the Golden State. Unfortunately, many station owners or technicians who receive a notification from the Bureau of Automotive Repair may seek to address the problem in a good-natured way. This may not be the best strategy, however, because the Bureau has many high-powered lawyers and understands the technicalities of the law. A better strategy might be to reach out to a defense attorney for advice and assistance, in order to level the playing field between the attorneys of the state bureaucracy and the station owner or technician. For this reason, Automotive Defense Specialists has announced a new post in their series of defending one’s rights vis-a-vis the Bureau of Automotive Repair in California.
