California Lemon Law Attorney Fees

How Much Does It Cost To File A Lemon Law Claim With An Attorney?

How Much Does A Lemon Law Lawyer Cost?

The fee structure for California Lemon Law attorneys varies, but most (including Cali Lemon Lawyers by Prestige Legal Solutions, P.C.) charge a contingency fee, which means that you only pay the attorney if you win your case. The contingency fee is typically a percentage of the total compensation awarded to you. In some cases, the attorney may also charge additional fees for out-of-pocket expenses, such as filing fees, deposition costs, and expert witness fees.

Do I pay a Lemon Law lawyer?

The California Lemon Law permits you to recover legal fees and costs in full from the manufacturer. Some lawyers charge an hourly of anywhere between $400 to $600 per hour, while others simply take a percentage of the settlement.  Either way, you will not have to pay these costs.

During your free consultation, we will review your case and determine if you qualify for a lemon law claim. If you do qualify, our team of legal professionals will work to advocate for you and help guide you through the process. We will also explain the net take-home recovery, including the manufacturer’s refund of the down payment and satisfaction of the loan amount, less any pertinent deductions such as the statutory mileage offset.

If the claim is not successful, you as the client do not have to pay any fees. This can make it more affordable for you to pursue a lemon law claim and provide peace of mind.

Bakersfield lemon law answer

A contingency fee is a type of fee arrangement where the client will never have to pay anything upfront as the attorney will only get paid if the client is successful in their case. Additionally, when the time comes for the attorney to get paid, the law in California requires the manufacturer to pay the attorney fees and costs directly to the attorney.

    How Does A Car Qualify For Lemon Law?

    In order for your lease or purchase to qualify under the statute of your state’s lemon laws, you must:

    • Bring your purchase to the manufacturer to be serviced when it has an issue.
    • Keep records of your manufacturer attempting to service the same issue multiple times.
    • Persist that the manufacturer attempts to fix the vehicle even if it seems pointless.
    • Notify the manufacturer in writing about your vehicles’ defects and keep records.

    If you want to ensure that you qualify under your state’s lemon laws, then you should avoid:

    • Taking your car to any mechanic that is not your manufacturer, because this may void your warranty
    • Losing your vehicle because it was repossessed
    • Not returning your car to the manufacturer for repairs. It may seem redundant, but you need to be able to prove you made every attempt at fixing your vehicle before they will refund or replace your vehicle.
