David represents consumers in complex consumer protection and financial fraud cases.
Automobile defects can jeopardize driver safety and can lead to expensive and recurring repairs. Unfortunately, some car manufacturers do not always comply with consumer laws, for example, by not honoring their warranties or by concealing a known problem at the point of sale or repair.
Our auto lawyers represent consumers across the country who have bought or leased a defective car, truck, or motorcycle. We have litigated cases involving:
- Defective air bags
- Auto defects involving brakes, headlights, and a wide variety of other components and systems
- Warranties and unlawful secret warranty programs
