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.

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.

Finding an Attorney is a frustrating process. It took me four long months of intense interviews only to be turned away, but somehow I was able to talk to the right people who referred me to the right team.  And that is, Cline APC. I did a lot of prep work on my own with evidence which made the process go faster. But I couldn't have been more pleased  when I found out the level of experience Brian Cline had... but most importantly his knowledge and connections with such cases like mine. I received updates on my case; and whenever I inquired they got back with me  immediately.  Moreover, Cline APC. delivery exactly what they anticipated too.  I couldn't have been more satisfied with the whole process.

Thank you to Cline APC for helping us with our defective vehicle. The firm was very professional, helpful and informative. Whenever we had a question or just wanted to see how the case was coming along, they were responsive every single time we reached out. Mark Johnson and Shawnee Cummings were the main two that we dealt with and they were awesome. Even after our case settled and we had some questions about purchasing another vehicle, Mark didn't even hesitate to take the time to look into a few of our choices and give us insight on them.Thank you so much to all who were involved in getting our case settled, we greatly appreciate all the hard work you put into making this happen.Sincerely,Matt and Tobbi Baker

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! 🙂

I engaged Cline APC to represent me and my claim against FCA. I was represented by Attorney Nia Perkins and my case was settled amicably prior to my scheduled court date. While I hope to never be in need of another "Lemon Law" legal team, Cline APC will be the first call I make if I ever do.

I am an attorney that practices here in the San Diego area. I was first introduced to Brian Cline when one of my clients needed help with a Lemon Law issue. I researched thoroughly which Lemon Law attorney I would refer my client to because I knew my own reputation was on the line based on who I chose. I ended up choosing Brian Cline to refer my client to and Brian got them a great settlement. I have now referred at least 3 of my clients that needed help with a Lemon Law situations to Brian Cline and I will continue to choose Brian.

A lemon lawsuit is never a pleasant thing, but it makes all the difference to work with a lawyer and legal staff that know what they're talking about, know what they're doing, and perform with a high level of professionalism. Brian Cline and Cline APC were great to work with. They explained everything clearly, provided great advice, and got us the settlement we hoped for. Brian is very intelligent and capable, and I can't recommend him and his team highly enough.
