You will be glad to hear that you are not responsible to pay our attorneys’ fees. Our attorneys’ fees are paid for by the defendant manufacturer or dealership in addition to your recovery. The California lemon law was designed by the California legislature to protect Orange County consumers of defective automobiles, RV’s, boats, trailers, cars, trucks, SUV’s, recreational vehicles and consumer goods. In order to protect California consumers, the legislature made the law consumer friendly by providing that a consumer’s attorneys’ fees be paid for by the defendant who violated the law – and that the the attorneys fees be paid on top and in addition to the amounts paid to the consumer. That way, the lawyers do not take any of the consumer’s money. In the unlikely event that there is no recovery, our clients are not responsible to pay our attorneys’ fees.

The California Lemon Law is codified in California’s Civil Code Section 1790 et seq., and is referred to as the “Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act.” The California lemon law allows consumers to elect between Repurchase or Replacement of their defective vehicles. The California Lemon Law goes further by providing a Civil Penalty to consumers who have been wronged by a defendant’s willful violation of California law.
In addition to these beneficial aspects of the law, the California Lemon Law provides that:
“If the buyer prevails in an action under this section, the buyer shall be allowed by the court to recover as part of the judgment a sum equal to the aggregate amount of costs and expenses, including attorney’s fees based on actual time expended, determined by the court to be reasonably incurred by the buyer in connection with the commencement and prosecution of such action.” California Civil Code Section 1794 (d).
This is a unilateral fee provision – that allows prevailing consumers to collect their attorneys’ fees from the defendant. Equally important, is that the consumer is not responsible to pay the defendant’s attorneys’ fees in the unlikely event that the consumer does not prevail. This allows the individual California consumer to seek remedy against the powerful vehicle manufacturers without the inherent risk associated with most civil litigation.
