Lemon Law is a specialized type of legal claim that is only valid in some states – including California. If you’ve “bought a lemon” as the saying goes, then the Lemon Law applies – and a claim against the manufacturer is possible. It’s something that not all legal firms or attorneys will represent: But we specialize in it.
Even though it protects consumers, it can be hard to enforce without the assistance of an attorney. That’s where we come in.
Forget about the common myth that legal representation has to cost more than you’ll get back. We provide our clients with affordable, guaranteed legal protection – and we’ll only charge in the event of a successful case outcome. Naturally, this means that we have a consistently excellent success rate in representing our customers (or we wouldn’t be here!).
Our West Coast Justice offices are conveniently located in Long Beach, CA. Arrange a face-to-face consultation with one of our experts, or contact us for alternative consultation arrangements that can still allow us to discuss your case where this is not possible.

Need legal representation after “buying a lemon” from an auto manufacturer? West Coast Justice is a specialized law firm located in Long Beach, CA
We’re in the business of Lemon Law.
We’re also one of the premier law firms dedicated to securing a win for our clients when success is needed most.
According to the Lemon Law, auto manufacturers have a responsibility to service or repair new vehicles – but if this becomes impossible, total replacement or reimbursement of the vehicle becomes the law.
Even though the law is clear, it can sometimes be hard to enforce if you are a lone consumer without any backup.
This is where West Coast Justice steps in: Consumers deserve compensation when they’ve been done in – and they deserve justice against any auto manufacturer who doesn’t stick to the law.
See the below FAQ for common questions relating to West Coast Justice and California Lemon Law claims.
- Q: How do I know if I can file a California Lemon Law Claim?
If your vehicle is still covered under the warranty and the auto dealership has been given reasonable notice to repair a serious fault, then it becomes more likely that you are able to file a claim against the manufacturer under California’s Lemon Law.
It’s a common myth that California Lemon Law claims are only for vehicles that have reached a certain mileage (or have been owned for a certain time), but this information is false: All consumers that meet the above criteria could have a potential claim regardless of the mileage on the clock.
If you would like to find out whether or not California’s Lemon Law applies to your case, get in touch with West Coast Justice for more information and we’ll conduct a first-time case assessment.
- Q: Can I still file a Lemon Law claim if my car is still being paid off / under lease?
It’s another common myth that California’s Lemon Law only applies to vehicle owners who have paid for the car entirely in cash – or have their loan or lease paid off.
California’s Lemon Law claims still apply to anyone who might still have their car under loan or lease, and you can claim against a dishonest auto manufacturer regardless.
- Q: What is defined as a vehicle under California’s Lemon Law?
One of the reasons why people don’t realize that they can claim against an auto retailer for selling them a lemon on four wheels is because people aren’t sure which vehicles qualify.
California’s Lemon Law defines “vehicle” as including ones like RV’s and and boats.
If you can drive it, then it might count as a vehicle under California’s Lemon Law – and you might be able to claim after consulting with an attorney.
- Q: How long does a California Lemon Law claim take?
Without a counter claim from the manufacturer or seller (that means, an uncontested claim where they accept responsibility), we can help you to get your claim settled in a matter of months from your first consultation.
Sometimes, an out-of-court settlement can be negotiated where there is no opposition from the seller, but this is not always the case.
When a settlement cannot be negotiated or there is a further dispute, a claim could require more time to reach success.
- Q: What if I can’t make it to your offices?
In the event where our clients cannot make it to our offices for a first consultation, we can be contacted for alternative arrangements. This allows our experts to gain the necessary information about your case in a digital environment.
- Q: What information is necessary?
Get in touch with the West Coast Justice team before your first consultation and we’ll send you a list of the information we’ll need for a successful claim.
As a guideline, we’ll need all the information pertaining to your purchase and subsequent claim to access your case.
This includes vehicle make, year & model, mileage, date of purchase/lease, details of the issue you’ve experienced and any correspondence that you have with the seller regarding the purchase or subsequent repairs.
If we need any more information from you, we’ll ask.
