WHO WE ARE
WHAT IS THE LEMON LAW?
California Lemon Law Basics
California’s lemon law is one of the strongest in the nation, designed to protect consumers by requiring car companies and consumer goods manufacturers and warrantors to repurchase or replace vehicles or consumer goods that suffer from warranty defects that cannot be fixed in a reasonable number of attempts. In other words, if you buy a product that is a lemon you are entitled to get your money back under the lemon law. A reasonable number of repair attempts has been interpreted by California courts to mean as few as two attempts to repair the same nonconformity under warranty.
With consumer protection in mind, California’s law was designed with an attorney fee-shifting provision requiring the car companies and warrantors to pay for the consumer’s attorney’s fees and costs if the customer prevails in a lemon lawsuit. This means that the consumer’s attorney’s fees and costs are paid for by the other side, not the consumer.
Lemon Law Aid was created to exclusively serve the needs of California consumers who bought or leased cars, RV’s, motorcycles, boats, or other consumer goods that qualify under the lemon law. Recognizing a need for diligent, qualified, and ethical counsel on the consumer side, Lemon Law Aid was created after its founder spent 13 years defending lemon lawsuits primarily for car, truck, and motorcycle companies. This means that Lemon Law Aid brings unparalleled expertise to lemon law cases, having handled thousands of lemon law cases on the defense side, dozens of which went to trial or arbitration, and hundreds of which went to mediation or some other form of alternative dispute resolution. If you think your car, RV, motorcycle, boat or consumer good might be a lemon, contact us today for a free case evaluation.
