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.

Brian Cline is excellent!I received an notice of the Class action which including my car last August . Since this is the first time I met this problem, I just google it online what is class action and what happens with my car. I was so lucky to find this lemon law legal Group and contact them. After some simple question, Brian told me I'm qualify with the lemon law and I can go ahead to work with him have my car been repurchased by the manufacturer. As I said, it is the first time I met this, I couldn't believe this at first. Brain was so nice, and explain with my in detail about what is the lemon law, what is advantage, what could be the risk for both of us, and what will be the process of my lawsuit later, which make me feel comfortable and trust him.the following steps is as usual, He and his team help me win the case, get my money back.

We would definitely recommend Brian K. Cline of Brian K. Cline of CLINE apc, Attorneys at Law. Mr. Cline along with his staff made the entire process painless and quick. They are a very professional and personable team, not to mention more than capable to get the job done. We were hoping that Mr. Cline could work as our mediator with GM, since after a year we had been able to make little progress. Mr. Cline was able to exceed our expectations by resolving our dispute with GM, in a quick professional manner. After working with Mr. Cline, we feel like he is the best “lemon law” attorney in California.

I had an excellent experience with this law firm. I mostly dealt with Michael Devlin, who was excellent as well, but anyone I spoke with here answered my questions quickly and efficiently. I have absolutely no complaints. They kept me informed all the way through and they made a normally unpleasant experience, a pleasant one.

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! 🙂

My experience with Mr. Brian Cline was simply amazing. Please follow along with me for just a moment. If you are wondering who can help you, I assure you… you have found the right person in Brian Cline.I purchased a used car in 2015 and from the day that I brought it home, it had problems. I took my car back to the dealership time and time again. Finding the time to keep taking the car into the service department became such a hassle and trying to make the service department manager listen to me was an incredibly infuriating experience. After taking my car into the shop more than 5 times in less than a year… I knew that it was time to look for help.I spent days and days looking over Lemon Law Attorney sites in the San Diego area. To be honest, all of them looked pretty good. They all had great reviews including Mr. Cline. But for some reason my gut kept directing me to Mr. Cline’s site over and over again. I felt nervous because I had no idea if I actually had a case and just thinking about acquiring help from an attorney seemed scary. Finally, my bravery kicked in and I sent a letter to his office detailing my experience with my car. Here is what happened next…The very next day I received a kind response from his office stating that it sounded like I had a case. I was given a small list of items to gather and send to the office via email (repair orders, any email correspondence between myself and the dealership, copy of the warranty from time of purchase, sales contract, etc…)Once those items were sent in, his very delightful assistant, Ms. Shawnee Cummings, set up a phone call between myself and Mr. Cline. I spoke with Mr. Cline on the phone and he was so patient and kind in explaining the steps and procedures. He answered every question that I had. He shared examples of possible outcomes and he also shared that sometimes this can be a lengthy process. After speaking with Mr. Cline-- I knew that I had chosen the right person to help me. I signed a contract stating that he would be representing me.His office did all the dirty work. They sent me copies of everything that they were doing to help my case and THEN a short 8 months later it was all over with! He fought on my behalf and I was awarded a FULL BUY BACK! My car loan is completely paid off and I was given a check to repay me for all monthly payments plus other fees!I wish I could say that this was all just about the car and the money. But for me…this is so much more than that. During this dark time of dealing with an unsafe vehicle, I knew that I couldn’t get my little girl to the hospital when she needed to get there. I have a 10 year old daughter with significant health complications and I, unfortunately, had a very scary moment of not being able to put her in the car and get her to the hospital. Thank heavens, everything worked out, but this just shows how important a reliable vehicle is. But now, I have a wonderful down payment to put towards a new, reliable and safe vehicle. This provides peace of mind and that is priceless.I could never, ever express my gratitude enough to Mr. Cline and Ms. Cummings for their dedication to my case and for the care and fight that they put into getting the best results.I can’t wait until COVID fades… meeting these two spectacular people and giving them the most heartfelt “thank you” in person is at the top of my list.If you are reading this review because you need an attorney to help you, please don’t hesitate to call Brian Cline for help. Mr. Cline is simply the best and he will take good care of you as he did me - I can promise you this.
