Dealership Defense

The attorneys of St. Denis & Davey, P.A. understand that automobile dealerships have unique defense needs. Such dealerships frequently face claims of Truth in Lending Act (TILA) violations, particular product liability claims, lemon law claims, claims of Magnuson-Moss violations, and various fraud claims (which, in Florida, often involve allegations related to Florida's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act). Our firm has built a successful track record in defending clients against such claims and related matters such as class action certification.

Premises liability claims (for example those related to slip-and-fall incidents) are also frequent occurrences for many automobile dealerships. And, like other businesses, auto dealerships may face a variety of employment-related claims, such as claims of discrimination, harassment, or wrongful termination.

From our offices in Jacksonville, Tampa and Miami, Florida, St. Denis & Davey, P.A. offers our clients a full array of services related to automobile dealership defense. We have successfully represented automobile dealerships in Florida as well as in other states, in a variety of matters related to business law, employment law, product liability, and premises liability.

While we strive to resolve all claims out of court, we are always poised to defend our clients aggressively at trial, from pre-trial motions through any necessary appeals. In addition, we handle a variety of claims through arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution methods.

Recent successful outcomes reached by St. Denis & Davey, P.A. on behalf of automobile dealership clients include:

  • an Order Granting Summary Judgment and Denying Plaintiff's Motion for Class Certification
  • an Order Granting Summary Judgment in an employment discrimination case
  • an Order Denying Plaintiff's Motion to Amend.

In addition, we have reached defense verdicts in numerous Florida cases.
