A: A Florida attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You need an attorney who is experienced with auto claims, possibly dealing with insurance company special investigations units and sometimes criminal investigations. It might be difficult to find someone who specializes only in stolen vehicle claims, but an attorney who is experienced in auto claims could be your starting point. Ask if they have had experience with such claims before. In terms of legal fees, many law firms may not be able to handle these types of cases on a typical one-third contingency associated with auto bodily injury claims. The scale of damages can be lower and they can be the subject of protracted investigation. Good luck
