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 been taken to the repair facility for two, or more, repair attempts.

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.

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! 🙂

At a time when no one in the Bay Area wanted to hear me out about my case I was so distraught and I was racking my brain about what to do about my car when I saw that Brian was in San Diego I got a little discouraged but I took a chance! Brian kept his word on everything, his staff was always polite and responsive, and there was always someone there to answer whenever I called. Thanks B and Shawnee!

Having spent the past 3 years, trying to work the issues I was having with my vehicle, I reached out to the Cline law group for their advise and assistance. The Cline team quickly took a look at my case and got the ball rolling. They took their time to walk me through what to expect along with making sure they got every detail of my case correct. Their attention to detail was spot on along with their quick responses to my questions. At no point did I ever feel that I was over promised and under delivered. If you are looking for a creditable law group to take on your case, the Cline team is the professionals that you want on your side.

I purchased a brand new car in approx May 2020. I noticed a problem with the car from the first day that I took delivery. The manufacturer attempted a repair on four occasions but was unable to remedy the problem. The manufacturer was not willing to replace the vehicle. I found a lemon law attorney online that was reasonably well reviewed. However, after reviewing my case, the attorney told me that I didn't have a strong enough case and she was unwilling to take me on as a client. I then continued my Google search and came upon the Cline Team. Upon review of my supporting documentation, they told me that I definitely had a strong case and immediately took me on as a client. I couldn't have been happier with their representation. While the whole case took a lot longer than I would have liked (approx 7 months), I understand that the delay was caused by the manufacturers counsel being extremely slow and non-responsive. Ultimately, the manufacturer refunded every cent that I had laid out on the car (payments, registration) and took the car back. We got the results that we wanted and got to use the car for 9 months at no cost. The whole team was awesome. Brian Cline heads the team and while I had little communication with him, I know that he relies on his awesome team. My primary communications were with Mark Johnson, and then later with Shawnee Cummings and Camille Galanto. Each member of this team were great! I hope that I will never need Lemon Law representation again, but I know that if I do, I will only make one call. It is without hesitation that I give the Cline group my full endorsement and it is my pleasure to write this 5-star review!!!
