Dec. 13, 2019—Automotive Defense Specialists, a law firm defending the SMOG community against Bureau of Automotive Repair citations, announced a new blog post on the perils of a so-called DIY strategy. Trying to manage a Bureau of Automotive Repair citation in court without legal support can be a costly mistake. The consequences of losing a case in court can equal the loss of a SMOG career or license. Technicians and auto shop owners are encouraged to consider the result of trying to take a do-it-yourself approach to a SMOG accusation.

The do-it-yourself movement is trending in America. Various businesses offering 'how to' services have sprouted up to support the new movement. Self-made business owners might find managing specific projects alone can save money and time. Not all situations could benefit from a DIY project. Specific problems do better with the help of a skilled professional, however. For these reasons, Automotive Defense Specialists has announced a new post for SMOG technicians considering the DIY approach to a Bureau of Automotive Repair Citation.

"We understand the attraction of DIY projects, but fighting for the life of your business in court should not be one of them," explains attorney William Ferreira of Automotive Defense Specialists. "Choosing to go into court alone may seem like a reasonably inexpensive solution, but can turn out to cost much more than planned. The short-term 'savings' of not getting a lawyer can equate to the long-term result of losing months of income."
