Natural Helper CJudithonnects Immigrant to Attorney General’s Office
Case Involving Car Warranty is Subsequently Appealed

Buying a car can be stressful. Imagine trying to buy one when you don’t speak the language well. Judith bought a car with a warranty that stated the dealership would cover the cost of repairs within a certain time period after the purchase. Unfortunately, many problems popped up on the car only days after the purchase, and the dealership did not honor the warranty. When Judith refused to pay for the repairs, the dealership sued her, and the court did not rule in her favor. Not only was Judith trying to adjust to a new place, but also she acquired thousands of dollars in debt because of a faulty car.

Cristina Gomez, a Natural Helper who works at our Southeast Community Services Branch on Monday evenings from 4:30 to 7:30 with the Indiana Attorney General’s office. They appealed the court’s decision, and Judith’s case won the second trial. She is now debt free and helping other immigrants with similar challenges.
