CALIFORNIA’S PREMIER
LEMON LAW LAWYERS

We’re highly specialized in the process of the lemon law in California, and we bring years of experience to the courtroom. Don’t resign yourself to losses from your bad vehicle – seek fair compensation with our aggressive, battle-tested team of lemon law attorneys.

The California Lemon Law

Sometimes a car is just a lemon, no matter how many times it’s repaired or serviced. As lemon law lawyers, it’s our job to ensure you’re compensated for vehicles that don’t meet functionality standards. We’ll determine if your faulty vehicle meets the California lemon law qualifications - then fight for fair repayment.

No Out-of-Pocket Fees

Taking a lemon law case to trial shouldn’t cost you a dime - as long as your car meets the criteria. According to our California lemon law, the manufacturer is required to pay all of your attorney fees, costs and expenses if you win the case. At Cline APC, we believe consumers should never have to pay any out-of-pocket costs to fight for justice.

Lemon Law Buyback

If your vehicle qualifies for a lemon law buyback, the manufacturer will refund your down payment, car payments, loan payoff, registration fees, and any other related out-of-pocket costs. Our number one goal is to make the California lemon law buyback process quick, painless, and comprehensive for consumers.

California Lemon Law Qualifications

A vehicle can be deemed a lemon in California if:

  • The vehicle has a defect that impairs its use, value, or safety.
  • The vehicle cannot be repaired by the manufacturer with a reasonable number of attempts.
  • The vehicle has been taken to the repair facility for two, or more, repair attempts.
  • Regardless of the number of repair attempts, if the vehicle has been out of service for repairs a cumulative total of 30 or more days.
  • The defect was not the result of unauthorized use.

Experienced and Proven Californian Lemon Law Lawyers

The lemon law lawyers of Cline APC help Californians obtain refunds for faulty car, motorcycle, boat, or RV purchases and repairs. We’ve carried out lemon law cases against every major auto, RV, and boating manufacturer. We are not afraid to go up against the giants.

The California lemon law applies to motorcycles, boats, RVs, trucks, and vans. Whether your defective vehicle is new or used, purchased or leased, we’re here for you. We’ll navigate the complexities of the lemon law and the California court system.

We’ve proven our success time and time again, and can do it for you, too.

Understanding California's Lemon Law

California’s lemon law was created by citizens for citizens. You can find it in California’s Civil Code as the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, section 1790, et seq.

The California lemon law was designed to defend citizens against corporations that would take advantage of consumers. When your new or used vehicle is proven to be a lemon, the law requires manufacturers to repurchase or replace your vehicle if it cannot be repaired within a reasonable number of repair attempts. They must cover your attorney fees and court costs upon resolution.

That’s why we never charge any hidden fees or out-of-pocket costs. Other firms might, but our California lemon law firm doesn’t believe in reaching for your hard-earned dollars. We’ll let the manufacturer take care of the payments.

Protect your Lemon Law Rights

The auto industry is big business. It is represented by some of the largest law firms in California. These firms created a cottage industry out of helping manufactures avoid repurchasing defective new and used car lemons.It is essential your lemon law case is handled by trial attorneys who have a consistent and proven track record of success against the big auto companies. Our lemon law attorneys aggressively approach each lemon law matter with a singular goal in mind; to make the manufacturer take back your new or used car lemon and refund your money or issue a replacement vehicle.

Stand up against Big Manufactuers

Have you been sold a faulty vehicle? Don’t let the big auto industry walk all over your rights.
 

Our trial attorneys have a consistent, proven track record of going up against “unbeatable” manufacturers. We won’t quit until you have a new car parked in your driveway or have been issued a fair refund.

I was terrified to take legal action with my car situation. But luckily, I was referred to Brian Cline by my friend James Roe which is also an attorney. From the beginning to the end everyone was so helpful. I didn’t have to worry about too much. They made this stressful experience kind of easy to be honest. The car was bought back completely plus a little extra. My case was assigned to Eric Natenstedt. It was a pleasure working with him. He kept me in the loop with my case. Everyone was great and professional. Don’t hesitate and have them represent you! You won’t regret it!Thank you Camille, Brian and Eric for all your help! It was a pleasure working with all of you!

Chances are, if you are reading reviews of Lemon Law attorneys, it’s because you have a problem with your car, you have already read about California’s Lemon Law, you are pretty sure you qualify and now, it’s time to find an attorney. I did the same, but let me tell you what you do not yet know: car manufacturers don’t care for the law, they do not care if your case has merit and they certainly do not care about you. They are going to fight you, any offer they make you will be without enforceable provisions and, more to the point, they will try everything to torture your attorney into dropping your case. So let me give you a recommendation to make your life easier and potentially lead to a very successful outcome: Hire the Cline Law Group. Period. Brian Cline and his attorneys do not back down, they are fighters, they put you the client first, they know the law, they know the BS tricks the manufactures use and they are in it to win it. In my case, they did all of the above and won me a very favorable victory, for which I am most grateful.

My first new car was sadly defective. I previously had a different lemon law lawyer but ended up looking else where (they were terrible at communication) while browsing though the many law firms on yelp i found this firm and im so glad i did. I cant say enough good things about working with them. My main contact at the firm was Jeffrey Moses he was super informative and very responsive he helped me settle my lemon law case and now the car company is buying their defective car back!... I hope im never in this situation again but if i am this is the firm id be working with to settle it. Thanks again for your amazing work Jeffrey! 🙂

Late review. First thank you guys for your help. Originally when I started looking for help nobody wanted to help, but Brain gave me a chance. It took sometime, but it is definitely worth it.

We worked with Brian Cline to get our case on our vehicle settled. He was great with communication and letting us know our options and advice. He got us well over what we originally thought we could receive. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone with a lemon law case! Thank you Brian!
