Initially welcomed by small-town locals, Brian and Michele Hall were welcomed in the local paper, when they relaunched their Land Rover Defender restoration shop in 2017. The business would import parts and offer restoration services for vintage Land Rover aficionados.
Michele, a native of Gig Harbor, graduated from high school there and her husband Brian Troy Hall, a transplant from Orange County, California, turned his hobby into a business. Yet, not all was as it seemed. The Halls are facing mounting legal troubles amidst allegations of restoration fraud. The unfortunate incident may lead to criminal charges for the Halls, and further damage the controversial Land Rover Defender restoration industry.
Recently, customers filed a major lawsuit against the Halls and their company, Defenders Northwest, LLC, and related parties (Autohome USA), claiming that Brian and Michele Hall are fraudsters and when they are not defrauding customers, they are marketing and selling illegal Land Rover Defender parts and restorations through their seemingly fancy website.
