When buying a motor vehicle, we entrust the dealer and manufacturer to have our best interests and be honest. Often, that is not the case. The goal of the lemon law is to guard the interests of small businesses or individuals who have bought or leased vehicles (new & used) under the warranty of a manufacturer or the seller. If the manufacturer or authorized dealer is unable to sufficiently repair a malfunctioning motor vehicle, then the owner or lessee would be entitled to a comparable new car or a refund. The lemon law case analysis helps determine what is probably a reasonable number of repair attempts to solve a vehicle’s defect and provide due compensation to the owner or lessee.
THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF BRAND NEW CARS ARE LEMONS!!!
When purchasing vehicles, it's not easy to know which are lemons. But they are out there. In fact, your favorite car manufacturer can and does produce lemons. They are more common than you may believe. As As of Feb, 2022, the most likely cars to be lemons are the GMC brands. The CADILlAC & CHEVROLET are particularly prone to lemon status, under the Song Beverly Warranty Act. Some of the models most involved in lemon law claims include the GMC Sierra, GMC Yukon, Cadillac CTS, Cadillac STS Chevrolet Cobalt, and the Chevrolet Equinox. Ford vehicles, including their famous pickup trucks, are also notorious for their potential as lemons.

FEES & COSTS
In California, the attorney-client relationship begins with the client and lawyer signing a written contract which states what the attorney will do for the client and how and when any fees and costs will be due and payable. There is no fee for a FREE consultation. In most of the cases, the fees and costs are not due until resolution of the case, after the other side (often referred to as the defendant) has paid an approved settlement amount or satisfied the judgment on the case. This is known as a contingency fee agreement, as the fee would be contingent on receiving a recovery from the other side. In a contingency fee case, no payment is due and the fees and costs are deducted at the end from the amounts recovered from the other side. If there is no recovery under a contingency fee, then there would be no fee due.
Attorney’s Fees and the California Lemon Law
We provide free consultations, and we do not charge our clients ANY up-front fees. The California Lemon Law and the Magnuson-Moss Consumer Warranty Act include an attorney’s fees provision which allows us to collect our hourly attorney’s fees and court costs from the automobile manufacturer at the successful resolution. This makes pursuing almost all Lemon Law claims economically feasible for those who would otherwise not be in a position to hire an attorney. Moreover, any applicable contingency fee would not be due until settlement proceeds, verdict, or judgment are recovered.
