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 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.

I initially spoke with more than 10 attorneys and Brian was the only one who agreed to take on my relatively complex and unique case. This may have been in part because Brian and his team spent more time discussing with me, researching, and assessing the situation than anyone else and so really understood the context. Considering the excellent settlement/outcome, I believe Cline APC has expertise in Lemon Law that is above and beyond that of most CA Lemon Law attorneys.

I bought a Land Rover July 2019. A month and a half later, while driving on Interstate 5, the dashboard lit up with a Christmas display of warnings. The problem continued to repeat, even after sending the SUV to the dealer five times. Land Rover USA promised a "buy back". I waited their timeline for the paperwork to no avail. A month later and still no word, Cline APC took my case. They filed legal paperwork within a few days and started working on my case immediately. Shawnee Cummings kept me updated each step of the way and is the best representative of that firm. She makes you feel like they are actually working on your case. Mark Johnson is the lawyer you want on your case. It took a year and a half for the case to settle, yet in the end I am happy. I received all my funds back & won damages on top of the reimbursement. I would recommend this firm. Thank You Brian and team.

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.

I purchased a new vehicle in preparation of 3 major surgeries and multiple medical tests I would be undergoing, so transportation would not be a challenge I faced as well. Unfortunately, the vehicle I purchased quickly proved to be a Lemon and the dealership simply sent me away. My initial contact with a Lemon Law Attorney saw my case rejected without reason, so I searched further and found Brian Cline's firm. From the very first contact and consistently throughout the entire process, each person I spoke with was kind, thoughtful, professional and thorough. They graciously answered my multitude of questions (this being my 1st Lemon Law experience) and saw the case to a successful conclusion. I would (and have) referred others to this firm for help. Mark Johnson was my primary point of contact and handled my case like I was family and I am grateful for their kindness and professionalism in a very difficult situation. Thank you very much to each and every person in this firm who helped resolve my case! You can be sure the qualities listed are consistent throughout the firm!
