Lemon Law Lawyer | Berkeley | Lemon ExpertTrusted Lemon Law Lawyers for the Bay Area and Beyond

What do you do if mechanical problems arise shortly after you drive your brand new car off the lot? Suddenly your new investment is in and out of auto shops, and you’re spending way too much time trying to get the dealership or manufacturer to take responsibility for their faulty product. It’s a frustrating experience for new car owners.

Fortunately, you aren’t alone in this struggle. A “lemon” is a vehicle manufactured in the last five years that has substantial problems that can’t be fixed under warranty despite a reasonable number of tries. Buyers or lessees are protected under the Song-Beverly Act when it comes to obtaining a refund or replacement of the defective vehicle. Lemon Law Partners, LLP is a firm focusing exclusively on California lemon law. Our lawyers are fluent in California lemon laws, and we’ll do what it takes to make the manufacturers hold up their end of the deal when it comes to purchasing a new or used auto under warranty. Read the sections below to learn more about our practice and what we can do for you.

The Manufacturer Has to Pay Us If We Win

Another great thing about the California Lemon Law is that manufacturers are responsible for any legal fees and costs that accrue when a resolution is reached in a lemon case. This means our clients don’t have to pay anything, which is a huge bonus when you’re already dealing with the stress of a defective vehicle and/or a difficult manufacturer. Lemon Law Partners, LLP also offers free case evaluations, so there’s no risk in contacting us if you have questions about your lemon case in California.

Lemon Law Basics

What constitutes a “lemon” in California? What is a buyer or lessee entitled to if he or she has unknowingly purchased a lemon? This page covers all the basics and everything you need to know about the lemon laws in California, as well as your protected rights as a consumer. Generally speaking, a lemon is a new or used vehicle under warranty that has significant and recurring issues discovered after the purchase. Several attempts must have been made to repair the vehicle. If the car is out of service at least 30 days, then that is also grounds for a refund or replacement. For cars that qualify as lemons in California, consumers have a right to either a refund of the purchase or a replacement vehicle. But manufacturers are typically reluctant to comply, and too often litigation is necessary to right their wrongs.

Defective New Cars and Trucks

When you buy a new car or truck from a dealership or manufacturer, you have an expectation that it will run smoothly right off the lot without any major issues. Unfortunately not every single car that comes off the production line is perfect, and if your vehicle’s flaws are preventing you from driving it safely or without issue, you may have a lemon on your hands. In California, there are lemon laws in place to protect consumers who have purchased a vehicle with defects. The law requires that manufacturers offer lemon buybacks for new cars and trucks when the defect is unable to be repaired to the point of conforming to the warranty. If you believe that your new car or truck is a lemon, contact the experts at Lemon Law Partners, LLP to schedule a free evaluation of your situation. Our attorneys have successfully handled many California lemon law cases, and we can help you as well.

Defective New RVs, Travel Trailers and Motorcycles

There’s nothing quite like the excitement that comes from the purchase of a recreational vehicle. When you buy a new RV, travel trailer or motorcycle, it’s clear you’re ready for adventure. But in the case of a defective motor vehicle, unforeseen problems can halt your adventure in its tracks. Don’t let this happen to you! Consumers across the nation are protected from financial and litigation issues that may arise when trying to replace what’s known as a “lemon,” and California has some of the strongest protection laws in the country. If you bought a brand new RV, travel trailer or motorcycle and are already experiencing issues, Lemon Law Partners, LLP can help. Attorneys Anthony J. Sperber and Arthur J. Obolsky have helped countless clients solve their lemon-buying issues, and aren’t afraid to stand up to the big manufacturers when seeking justice. Let us help you get your adventure back on the road.

Defective Used Cars Under Warranty

In many cases it’s preferable to buy a used car instead of a new one. When you do, you’re hoping the dealer is being honest about the car’s history and that its records are accurate and up-to-date. In California, lemon laws provide protections to consumers who purchase new vehicles that turn out to have serious defects. But are you out of luck if the car you bought used turns out to be a lemon? Not necessarily – the lemon law applies to certain used vehicles as well. The knowledgeable attorneys at Lemon Law Partners, LLP know these laws front and back, and can tell you if your used car is protected under the California lemon laws. We offer free case evaluations, so don’t hesitate to call us if you’re having serious issues with your recently purchased 2012-2019 used vehicle under warranty.

I’m happy to write a review for Lemon Law Partners (LLP). I had a Ford Focus that had ongoing transmission problems. Eventually it began overheating. Ford would repair the car but it would end up back in the shop after time. I spoke to several lawyers I knew and they had words of praise for LLP. I called and talked to them myself and I felt I could trust them with my claim against Ford.

I submitted my paperwork to LLP and they kept me posted as the case progressed. I never had to go to court. Eventually I got information about what Ford was offering to settle the case. I discussed it with my wife and the LLP staff and we decided it was a great settlement that was very fair. I know I could not have done so well on my own. I never wanted to file a claim, but in the end LLP made the process very simple. I am very happy to recommend LLP for your Lemon Law claim. I am a very happy and satisfied customer.
