California Lemon Law Fees
The legal services provided by the lemon Law Offices of Delsack & Associates are FREE in most cases. Your situation will likely qualify for protection under the California lemon laws if your vehicle has a substantial manufacturing defect which affects the safety, value, or use of your vehicle; the vehicle cannot be repaired after a reasonable number of repair attempts, and the original repair attempt occurred within the new car warranty. Demonstrators and used vehicles which were purchased while still under the manufacturer's new car warranty, are also covered.
The attorneys' fees charged by law firms for handling California lemon law cases vary greatly. Some firms require the client to pay an up-front, non-refundable retainer; some lemon law firms' retainer agreements provide for a minimum fee that the firm must be assured of recovering from the manufacturer, and if not received then the client must pay the difference; and some lemon law firms earn their fees on a contingent fee basis and only upon successful completion of the case.
Our Retainer Agreement
The California Code Professional Conduct requires that a client must sign a retainer agreement in order to be represented by the law firm. Ours is a contingent fee retainer agreement. We are paid only upon successful completion of the case. In most cases the attorneys' fees are paid by the manufacturer and the client pays nothing. We do all the work and take the risk of not receiving anything if the case is not successfully concluded. We are, therefore, very selective in the clients that we will represent, which results in better personal service for our clients, and greater respect and handling of our clients’ cases from the defendant manufacturers.
If you purchased a lemon, the California lemon laws require that the manufacturer repurchase your vehicle and refund all of your money less a "use fee" deduction. We calculate and explain to you that "use fee" deduction, and our estimate of your total recovery, after we have reviewed your documents and before you decide to retain our firm to represent you in getting your money back.
