How Much Does an Orange County Lemon Law Lawyer Cost?

If you suspect that you have a lemon vehicle on your hands, you should contact an Orange County lemon lawyer to seek the compensation you deserve. 

Many Orange County lemon law firms work on a contingency basis. They receive payment from the manufacturer or distributor for their services once the attorney receives a favorable judgment and fair settlement.

If a lemon law attorney wins your case, you may not have to pay any out of pocket legal fees. Under California lemon laws, lemon vehicle owners can obtain at least three different types of compensation from automakers:

  • A replacement vehicle or a refund (your choice);
  • Incidental and consequential damages for losses directly related to the vehicle problems; and
  • Attorney’s fees and costs. 

In some instances, where the manufacturer or distributor has willfully failed to repurchase or replace your vehicle, you may also be entitled to civil penalty damages up to two times the amount of your other damages.  

Your lemon law attorney will seek the total damages you are owed in each category. This includes seeking payment for attorney’s fees and costs. If your claim succeeds, the automaker covers your lawyer’s fees and expenses as part of your compensation. 

California lemon law holds automakers to a high standard. Manufacturers and distributors are expected to sell or lease vehicles only if those vehicles are free of defects. They are also expected to abide by the terms of their manufacturer’s warranties and certified pre-owned (CPO) warranties, such as attempting to actually repair problems that arise with covered vehicles and not just attempt a repair. If an automaker can’t fix the problem, the California lemon law will properly compensate vehicle owners.
