Shelton, CT asked in Consumer Law and Contracts for Connecticut

Q: My car was sold by a storage yard. It was restored & resold for big money. What area of practice would best help me?

My old car was in storage for years with a Connecticut licensed dealer. I missed several months of storage payments, and the dealer sold the car as junk for cash, without paperwork, and without notifying me or otherwise complying with the pertinent DMV regulations.

The car was resold as-is, without a title, to an out-of-state dealer who managed by underhanded means to obtain a title in his state, and who then restored the car to like-new condition. That dealership then re-titled the car in yet another state, created an exciting and glamorous (but false) "back story" for the car, and sold it for an astonishing amount of money.

I realize that this case is too complex for guidance from an online forum, but I am having trouble finding an attorney whom I feel truly understands the issues involved. In what specialty or area of practice would I be likely to find an attorney that would have the experience and background to help me?
