All Businesses in California Have Rights – Even SMOG Station Owners

When you run a business in California you have rights. It may not seem that way at times, but the fact is that you do. And those rights exist, even against the government. And that even includes you SMOG station owners and technicians! Yes! You have the right to dispute a decision by California’s regulatory agency for car repairs and SMOG issues, that is the California Bureau of Automotive Repair.California business owners have rights.

Of course, the Bureau of Automotive Repair would like you to think that you don’t have any rights. Or even if you know you have rights, their attorneys would like you to believe that you have no chance of overturning their decision because they are, after all, the Bureau of Automotive Repair, and what they say, goes.

Er, no. Not necessarily. Not by a long way. But if you are going to dispute a decision by the BAR – and you should do – you need a qualified defense attorney for SMOG check stations. Whatever you do, don’t try and deal with it on your own. And that holds, even if you KNOW you are in the right. They will run rings around you!

Look, they have decided that you did something wrong and what they want to do now is to put you out of business. It doesn’t matter whether you are right or wrong – they just want to close you down. And this is why you need a defense attorney for SMOG check stations who can beat the Bureau of Automotive Repair at their own game.
