A: If you are seeking a lawyer to sue an auto repair shop for fraud, I recommend hiring an attorney with experience in civil litigation, specifically with experience with the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act. That said, I recommend you organize everything in your possession that is relevant to this matter, and consult with an attorney individually.

Many of us offer free consultations, so it will not cost you anything out of pocket to obtain the opinion of an experienced professional. Also, I recommend acting quickly, because if your allegations for fraud are grounded in the purchase of a used car, you may be entitled to additional remedies if you act within 15 days of the purchase of the vehicle pursuant to statutory authority.
