Finding The Best California Lemon Law Attorney

To get proper representation in the court you should have an aggressive attorney. It is not advisable that car buyers or lessees represent themselves in the court on their own as each state has its lemon law which is quite different from the others and its peculiarities are known only to a skilled and experienced lemon law lawyer.

Hovanes Margarian and his team of experienced lawyers have handled thousands of lemon law and auto dealer fraud cases which have been celebrated with the best outcome.

California Lemon Law Cases

Although not every “lemon vehicle” meets these criteria, here are some indicators that you may be driving a lemon. For many of our clients, we have been able to get a full lemon law refund without meeting any of these criteria. However, here are the statutory elements in California:


Your vehicle was under the original manufacturer’s warranty at the time the problems or defects arose and the vehicle had less than 18,000 miles when it was first taken in for a repair.


The manufacturer was given a “reasonable” number of opportunities to repair the vehicle. This number, depending on the defect and its seriousness, can range from 2 to 4 times.


Your vehicle has been at a certified and/or dealer repair facility for a total of 30 days when all the repair dates are added up, regardless of the number of times it was taken in for repairs.

Documents Needed for Your Case

When seeking legal help for your defective vehicle, it is important to have the necessary documentation to prove your case. The judge will rely on evidence such as copies of repair documents, video recordings of the defects and other testimonies. When clients come to see us they need to bring:


All repair documents. If you do not have them or some are missing, you can go to your service department and ask for a printout. They will most likely comply.


All purchase or lease documents. These documents include your main agreement or contract, the DMV paperwork and any other documents signed on the day of the purchase/lease.


Any additional receipts. Receipts related to any additional repairs, toying services or other items related to your vehicles are important to be able to request a full reimbursement.

Consumer Class Actions

Consumer Class Action Lawsuits are lawsuits filed by a group of consumers who have experienced a problem of a similar nature connected with the same make and model of a vehicle. A class action lawsuit may have thousands of plaintiffs but only one person is named in the court documents as the class representative.

It is worth mentioning that not every attorney that does lemon law and dealer fraud cases is able (nor is Class Certified by the court) to represent a group of people in a class action lawsuit. California lemon law attorney Hovanes Margarian is ready to handle not only your California lemon law and auto dealer fraud cases but also consumer class actions. Mr. Margarian has successfully returned millions of dollars to consumers through class action lawsuits against manufacturers such as BMW, Audi, and others.

The Margarian Law Firm will represent you on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will not have to pay any attorney’s fees. The manufacturer will be required to pay your attorney after he/she had won the case for you. Take the action into your own hands and call us today to get your lemon law refund!
