  3. Identity theft
    Victims of identity theft often suffer long after the crime was committed. If someone else has fraudulently opened credit cards or accounts in your name or is using your credit without your permission, The Tatar Law Firm can help make sure your credit report shows only those accounts that belong to you.

    21 years

  4. Consumer protection
    When you buy a used a car, you buy the car’s history as well. The Consumer Legal Remedies Act protects consumers when a salesperson or employee lied, misrepresented or failed to reveal your vehicle’s history, your vehicle was in an accident prior to your purchase, was sold as new when it was used, or was previously used as a rental car.

    21 years

  5. Debt collection
    Being abused or harassed by a debt collector comes in many forms, and may include the following: multiple calls a day, calling you at an inconvenient time or place, use of threats, use of profanity, attempts to collect a debt that is not yours or you have already paid, or contacting others about your debt.

    21 years

  6. Lemon law
    California’s Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act protects purchasers of new and used products, including cars, motorcycles and motorhomes. If your new or used vehicle has been in for repairs a repeated number of times, your vehicle has defects in it that have not been fixed, or the manufacturer or dealer refuses to honor its warranty, the California Lemon Law protects you as a consumer and may provide you with a replacement vehicle or a repurchase of your lemon.
