Attorney Tom Hudson and Team Write Book for Auto Dealers About Vehicle Financing, Leasing

December 1, 2006

HANOVER, Md. —, the publisher of automobile financing and leasing legal compliance services, has published a new book by Thomas B. Hudson and the lawyers of Hudson Cook LLP that gives readers 342 things to know about auto dealer finance.

The new book, titled CARLAW F&I Legal Desk Book — The Answer Book for Finance and Insurance Professionals, presents a law-by-law, regulation-by-regulation guide through the legal maze that dealers face every day. Each chapter was authored by a Hudson Cook lawyer who’s day-in, day-out practice involves that chapter’s subject matter. The format for each chapter is a straightforward “Q&A,” with questions and answers designed to address the everyday compliance issues that dealers face. The book includes Internet links through, so readers can find the actual laws and regulations discussed in each chapter.

The F&I Legal Desk Book also has been designated as the official textbook for the Association of Finance and Insurance Professionals’ Certified F&I Professional Program. Dave Robertson, AFIP’s Executive Director, said “Hudson Cook is now the course authority for the applicable state and federal regulations. I can count on one hand the law firms in the United States who could have met our curriculum requirements. The F&I Legal Desk Book will dramatically reduce the time required for candidates to prepare for the 200-question final exam. Hudson Cook has made a major contribution to AFIP’s efforts to raise the bar for regulatory compliance and ethical conduct within the F&I trade.”

Joe Lescota, Chairman of the Automotive Marketing Department at Northwood University, indicated that Northwood’s students would be seeing the book shortly.

The F&I Legal Desk Book is 340 pages and costs $49.95 plus shipping and handling. To order, go to (Products tab).
