The Bay Area lemon law attorneys at YOUNG & YOUNG APC have dedicated their careers to helping California residents in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout the state. Our team has successfully resolved countless lemon law cases through settlement or trial. The California lemon law requires the automobile manufacturer to pay the consumer’s attorney’s fees, costs, and expenses. This allows consumers to pursue California lemon law claims without paying anything out of pocket. Other lemon law firms charge their clients retainer fees or contingency fees – we don’t! Our firm does not get paid until we obtain a recovery for our client.

Consumers in the San Francisco Bay Area have protection from faulty vehicles
The California lemon law provides protection for those who have purchased or leased a new or used vehicle within the manufacturer’s original warranty period. In California, the lemon law requires a manufacturer to promptly repurchase or replace a vehicle when the dealership is unable to repair the vehicle after a “reasonable” number of repair attempts or within a reasonable amount of time.
What constitutes a reasonable opportunity to repair a vehicle?
The California lemon law does not set forth a specific number of repair visits to satisfy this requirement. A “reasonable” number of repair attempts is determined on a case-by-case basis in relation to the severity of the vehicle’s defect. For safety-related defects, this could mean as little as two repair attempts at the manufacturer’s authorized repair facility. This requirement may also be satisfied if the vehicle is in the repair facility for over 30 cumulative days (not necessarily all at one time).
What kind of compensation is available in California lemon law cases?
If you have been sold a lemon, you could be entitled to compensation through the California lemon law.
