There are many small auto repair shops in California, and if you are either the owner of one or a technician, you may well find yourself on the wrong side of the law as far as the Bureau of Automotive Repair is concerned. There is always the danger of receiving a STAR invalidation, citation, or accusation, and if this should happen to you it can put you in big trouble.
Sadly, it is a fact of life in the auto repair business that the Bureau of Automotive Repair has a team of very highly paid lawyers whose job is to put you out of business if at all possible. The problem with the Bureau of Automotive Repair is that it always believes it is 100% right and you are 100% wrong.
So, it is a case of big government and big lawyers up against small businesses, and if this should happen you need to set about finding a defense attorney to fight the case on your behalf.
You May Need a Specialist Attorney
When we say finding a defense attorney, we mean a specialist attorney and a big attorney, and that is not necessarily the one just down the road. Certainly, any attorney can defend you against the Bureau of Automotive Repair, but you need an attorney who can win your case. That means that you need an attorney who understands all the intricacies of automotive repair as well as understanding the law.
