AASP/NJ Creates Legal Defense Fund to Aid Shops Battling Litigation

The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) has established a Legal Defense Fund to provide financial assistance to member shops battling industry-related issues through the legal process.

The Legal Defense Fund is designed exclusively for AASP/NJ members in good standing, and is offered at the discretion of AASP/NJ’s Board of Directors if such legal proceedings stand to result in favorable industry decisions, or will in some way positively affect or advance the automotive repair industry.


“Due to the current state of the industry and the lack of enforcement of the current rules, it has become obvious that the only way to resolve certain issues is to get a ruling from a court of law,” states AASP/NJ Executive Director Charles Bryant.


Financial assistance would go towards expenses including, but not limited to, legal fees, reports, transcripts and costs resulting from the legal process.


Contributions to the Legal Defense Fund are needed in order for AASP/NJ to be able to adequately provide qualifying members for financial aid in their legal efforts. One-time or monthly contributions are accepted.


“[The Fund] is there to support the ones who are going into battle, so to speak, and standing up for what is right,” explains AASP/NJ President Jerry McNee. “It’s not just for the purpose of the individual but for the industry as a whole.”


To learn more about AASP/NJ’s Legal Defense Fund or to see if you qualify for assistance, contact Bryant at (732) 922-8909 or email setlit4u@msn.com.
