Do you have an auto fraud practice, or are you considering starting one? Want to get help with your thorniest auto fraud cases? Interested in getting auto fraud advice from one of NACA's most experienced auto fraud attorneys? Bernard Brown will be available for an online question and answer session on all topics related to auto fraud.

NACA is starting a new webinar series entitled Ask the Expert. This series will include an hour-and-a-half online question and answer session with NACA's leading attorneys. The first series will feature Bernard Brown, one of NACA's founding members. We welcome questions in advance. Please email your questions to us in advance.


Bernard Brown has been in private practice in Kansas City since 1980. Between 1984 and 1996, his office was focused on representing victims of car fraud, such as the fraudulent sale of rebuilt wrecks and cars with odometer rollbacks. More recently, he has also worked on class actions relating to vehicle sales and financing, on mortgage fraud cases (in conjunction with Legal Aid in Kansas City), and on “no title” car cases against finance companies. His cases have resulted in many notable jury verdicts and settlements, and a sizable number of his cases have resulted in published court decisions of significance in these areas of the law. He is a contributing author to NCLC’s Auto Fraud manual. He also has served as an adjunct law school professor teaching consumer protection law. Mr. Brown is a founding member of the NACA, was one of its two original co-chairs, has twice served on the NACA board, and served for a number of years as chair of its ethics committee. He served on a Department of Justice Advisory Board that was dedicated to building the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) for all six years of its existence, ending in 2016. In 2008, he received the Vern Countryman award from the National Consumer Law Center.
