If You Face a Denial of Your Bureau of Automotive Repair SMOG / STAR License, You Need a Specialist Attorney
As the owner of an auto repair shop or as a technician you may well think that your license is in “good standing”. However, it might not be.
As an auto repair shop owner or technician, you can be quietly going about your business when – BAM! – out of the blue comes a letter from the Bureau of Automotive Repair.
Automotive Defense Specialists Announces Post to Assist California Auto Shops Stay in Business with Help of Bureau of Automotive Repair Defense Attorney
Los Angeles, California – December 17, 2020. Automotive Defense Specialists, a professional team of lawyers prepared to defend auto repair and SMOG shops against California’s Bureau of Automotive Repair, is proud to announce a new post helping small business owners know their rights including the right to a forceful defense attorney against any state agency.
Official “accusations” by the Bureau of Automotive Repair are a matter of public record. You can search for them. However, if you should happen to be the target of an accusation, you still have rights. But you should bear one thing in mind, and that is that trying to handle an accusation by the Bureau of Automotive Repair on your own could land you in very hot water.
If a judgement goes against you and in favor of the Bureau of Automotive Repair, it is not necessarily the end. You still have a right to appeal. It may be that you didn’t use an attorney (big mistake) and decided to “go it alone”. Maybe you did use an attorney. Either way, you still have the right of appeal.
The Bureau of Automotive Repair plays offense. They pro-actively go out and look for SMOG shops and auto repair stations that they believe are doing illegal things. And it doesn’t matter whether you are as good as gold: if they think that you are at fault, they will come gunning for you.
