Lawyers frequently reject or overlook numerous viable cases by focusing on a potential client's (PC) complaints, rather than examining all aspects of a car sale transaction. Every new caller should be treated as a potential case, no matter how "frivolous" the caller's self-evaluated complaint. For example, the used car buyer who bought a car "As-Is" and 3 months later complains of engine problems is not a case you typically want to spend time on. But, this should be treated as an opportunity to examine the entire transaction for "red-flag" violations unrelated to the PC's complaint, e.g., examine the sales contract for "on-the-face" violations such as TILA disclosures, pricing violations, interest rate calculations, undisclosed charges; examine the credit application for false entries; examine other mandatory documents for compliance. At a minimum, we should obtain and examine all the sales documents for possible violations that the PC may never be aware of.
