Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
I assume that your question has to do with whether or not your vehicle was illegally towed.
Towing laws in California are unfortunately very complicated.
To better assist you:
Where was your vehicle at? (Public or Private Property)
Why was your vehicle towed?
You were willing and able to pay all amounts due to date (so all past due payments, fees, and interest)?
You are entitled to pay these fees to reinstate the loan.
There are actually a fair number of attorneys and law firms that handle these kinds of cases (they work on volume, so you can usually find them by searching for "Repossession Law California" or similar search terms), they can usually represent you and get your vehicle back and maybe even get a small money settlement in your favor. (But at least get your vehicle back in your possession and your loan reinstated - they usually take their fee out of the settlement - again they work on volume, so do not expect a huge amount of personal service, but they can usually get the job done).
If you offered to pay for the past due fees (and were able to do so at the time of the tow), then yes, you have a claim.
