11/14/2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

John Hanson

John HansonPlease calendar our next MCLE lunchtime program on Thursday, November 14, 2019, at 12:00 pm at the Manhattan of La Jolla restaurant (within the Empress Hotel at 7766 Fay Avenue). We are very pleased to have attorney JOHN W. HANSON as this month’s speaker.  Mr. Hanson is a member of our association, and practices exclusively in the are of consumer law. 

His presentation is entitled  “CONSUMER LAW: CAR SALES AND WARRANTY REPAIRS,” and will draw upon his 20 years experience representing clients in litigation with car dealerships and car warranty providers.  

The program will focus on consumer protection laws and the practice of consumer law in these two areas: (1) consumer manipulation and abuse by dealerships during car purchase transactions; and (2) automobile defects and the remedies and limitations of California’s lemon law.  Mr. Hanson will also address how attorneys can assist clients (and themselves) on how to save thousands of dollars and avoid becoming victim to both car sales practices and warranty company “run-arounds.”

The program will  provide 1 hour of general  MCLE credit.
