California Lemon Law Attorneys


The California Lemon Law is one of the strongest in the nation which includes a one-way fee-shifting provision, making the manufacturer pay the attorney for time spent on your Lemon Law claim. The other consumer protection claims we bring have similarly strong attorney fee-shifting provisions.

The Lemon Law in California can cover any consumer product that is new and comes with a warranty. That is not something you've paid for like a service contract which some folks call an "extended warranty." It covers Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, ATVs, SUVs, RVs, 5th wheels, boats, Jet Skis, and other types of vehicles and consumer products. The California Lemon Law may even cover your small business lemon.

If your vehicle or consumer product is a lemon, you may be entitled to get your money back, a new replacement, or perhaps, a cash settlement. So you have nothing to lose, except that Lemon! On this site, you have access to free Lemon Law information to help you gain the knowledge you need before filing a claim.

Our attorneys also have proven experience in serious personal injury claims and criminal defense matters, with dozens of trials under our collective belts.

Our Guarantee to our clients

We focus solely on individuals’ issues. We litigate lemon law (breach of warranty) claims, deceptive trade practices and fraud in the sale of vehicles, and serious personal injury claims.

At Kaufman and Kavicky each of our cases gets personalized attention and evaluation. Our focus and experience in working with a variety of claims and statutes allow us to fight cases to their best result.

You will be treated with courtesy and professionalism. Your case review is free of charge. We will be direct with you. If we cannot help you, we will tell you and why. If we are unable to take your case, we will not turn you away with a “sorry, we can’t help you” but instead, we will do our best to find alternate counsel for you.

Kaufman and Kavicky works most matters on a contingency fee basis. This means if we are not getting a favorable result for you, we are not getting paid. If we do obtain a favorable settlement or judgment for you, the defendant in the case will pay most, if not all, of our fees.

What can I expect in trying to get rid of my Lemon?

First and foremost, expect a lot of resistance. Any car salesperson will tell you, “You can replace the car, but, not the customer.” These businesses do not stay in business by buying back cars. Should the manufacturer decide they prefer a negotiated settlement, you may expect: A “buyback” or a…

I have an extended warranty, can I get help?
