When Is It Time To Hire a Lemon Law Lawyer?
If you purchased a vehicle in California in the past 5 years, and have experienced repeat issues with that vehicle, you may qualify for a refund under California lemon law. California lemon law was enacted to protect consumers who are dealing with vehicles that have repeat issues and cannot be repaired by the manufacturer within a reasonable amount of time, or with reasonable number of attempts to do so. Whether you purchased or leased a vehicle, California lemon law protects you! It protects consumers who purchased/leased new or “certified pre-owned” vehicles.
To qualify, you generally have to meet the following requirements:
1) Your car was purchased new or certified pre-owned.
2) All repairs to the vehicle were done under the manufacturer’s warranty (not an extended warranty, or a third party warranty).

Why Should You Hire Our Attorneys to represent you?
We fight against auto manufacturers to get you the justice you deserve.
Car manufacturers have their teams of lawyers and experts to stand behind them when and minimize their responsibility toward consumers, such as yourself. It is time for you to be at equal footing with these car manufacturers. Hire us so you don’t have to fight them alone!
We are experienced attorneys.
MyLemonAttorney.com is run by Katz Law, APC, a California law firm who is well-known in the industry and has represented thousands of consumers. We are not a referral agency. When you hire MyLemonAttorney to represent you, you are hiring our entire firm, with years of experience, to fight for you.
You won't pay us anything out-of-pocket!
One of the benefits of hiring our lemon law attorneys is that you will never pay us anything out-of-pocket. We get paid by the auto-manufacturers. That means that if we are not successful in getting you a refund for your vehicle, you will not be required to pay us anything. If we are successful, the car manufacturer generally pays our fees.
We deal with the headaches, so you don't have to.
Having car issues is extremely frustrating. Trust us, we know. You purchased a vehicle and expected it to perform, but it did not. Instead of dealing with the headaches yourself, you can hire our firm (no money out-of-pocket) and let us deal with the headaches and try to maximize your recovery.
We make sure to keep you updated throughout the process.
Lemon law claims can resolve in just a few weeks, but often can take multiple months to resolve. We understand that your case is important to you (as it is important to us), and we will make sure to keep in constant communication with you so that you are not left in the dark.

Frequently Asked Questions
No. California Lemon Law applies to the following:
• Cars, pickup trucks, vans, and SUVs.
• The chassis, chassis cab, and drive train of a RV.
• Vehicles purchased or leased for personal, family, or household purposes.
No. California lemon laws apply to used cars as well, so long as they were purchased “certified pre-owned” and so long as repairs were done under the manufacturer’s warranty.
Yes. All repairs that serve as the basis for the lemon law claim must have been completed under the original warranty of the vehicle (the warranty provided by the manufacturer).
You will receive the down payment, monthly car payments, license and registration fees, and sales tax that you paid for the vehicle. However, the manufacturer is entitled to certain deductions, the most common one being mileage deduction. Under the law, the manufacturer can deduct money to reflect the mileage you drove until you first reported the problem. There is a legal formula that is used to calculate the amount of the refund.
Hard to say. Some lemon law claims can resolve in a few weeks; others take many months. It depends on each specific case. The attorneys at MyLemonAttorney.com can give you a rough idea of the length of time your claim will take. Keep in mind that rushing to resolve a case may not be in the best interest of the client.
We generally get paid by the auto manufacturers. If your claim is successful, the manufacturer will pay our attorneys’ fees. If not successful, we will not charge you anything.
Yes, the law does not prevent you from starting a new lemon law claim.
The goal of almost every lemon law is to get the manufacturer of the vehicle to “buyback” the vehicle (i.e. refund all of the money paid). Sometimes, civil penalties can also be obtained against the manufacturer. Lastly, as an alternative to a buyback, lemon law claims can also resolve by the manufacturer paying cash and letting the owner of the vehicle retain the vehicle.
