You May Not Like Arguing, but With a California Regulatory Agency like the Bureau of Automotive Repair, It’s a Different Matter

Arguing with someone is not something that any sane person actually wants to do, but unfortunately, life happens, and there are times when it cannot be avoided. This is particularly true in the case of the auto repair and SMOG station business, whether you are the owner or a technician.You really MUST argue with the BAR over a citation.

First off, you find yourself arguing with customers. This is because they can get really “uppity” if you fail their vehicle. You are, of course, absolutely doing the right thing if their vehicle is at fault, but that doesn’t mean that they are going to be happy about it, and in many cases, they will start arguing with you the minute you tell them the result.

But unfortunately, in the auto repair and SMOG business, you can also get into an argument the other way around. This is what happens if you receive an accusation or citation from the state’s regulatory agency, the Bureau of Automotive Repair. You are instantly involved in a Bureau of Automotive Repair dispute, because if you don’t argue, you are going to be out of business!

Don’t Try To Deal With a Dispute On Your Own

Furthermore, it is absolutely no use trying to deal with a Bureau of Automotive Repair dispute on your own. You may very well be in the right, and in most cases that would be true. Sure, there are a few shady characters in the auto repair business, as there are in any other business, but the vast majority of repair shop owners and technicians are honest and upright and always do their absolute best, both for their customers and as far as the law is concerned.

The problem is that if you try to argue with the BAR on your own, you are almost certainly going to lose. This is because when the BAR issues an accusation/citation, and so on, it firmly believes that it is in the right and you are wrong. As far as the BAR is concerned, you are in the wrong, and you should not be allowed to stay in business, so they will do everything they can to prevent you from trading or working in the auto repair business.

This is why, when dealing with a Bureau of Automotive dispute, you need the services of an expert lawyer on your side who knows how to deal with the BAR and has years of experience to prove it. Our William Ferreira at Automotive Defense Specialists is the man you need.
