Driving and Automotive

Your car is more than just a way of getting around. It's a major investment and a valuable asset, not to mention a whole lot of fun to drive. And whether you're looking to buy, sell, insure, fix or protect your vehicle, we can help you get everything covered from a legal perspective so that you can get back behind the wheel.

A lot of your initial paperwork when buying or selling a car is easily handled at the DMV—like transferring the title and such—but when you're doing the transaction on your own, using a vehicle bill of sale can help make sure the buyer and seller are on the same page about the car. Other forms can help protect you and your vehicle like an auto repair contract, which keeps everything on the up and up with your mechanic. In some more detailed cases you might consider speaking with an attorney to make sure all your bases are covered.

Below you'll find a few articles that will walk you through some common situations, like how to file an accident claim with your insurance company, and how lemon laws can protect you from an unlucky auto purchase. And if you feel like you need to find a lawyer for any driving and automotive concerns, we're always happy to assist.
