- Automobile loan dispute cases are highly technical and in an unchecked market like Brevard County, the violations are numerous. Litigating is expensive and the average consumer victim does not have money to fund the litigation. The number of actionable cases exceed the case load capacity for any small law office or sole practitioner. To make things worse, arbitration clauses buried in the fine print limit consumers’ access to courts. When a dispute does find its way to arbitration, consumers are often on the losing end of the dispute. Therefore, it’s important to consider your client’s needs and resources and recognize when to fight the big fight and when to use a more efficient problem-solving approach. There are a few specialty consumer protection statutes that practitioners have at their disposal to quickly achieve a favorable result for clients who want the quick, efficient and inexpensive solution.
