Charles v. Manufacturer

Outcome: Full Refund (Lemon law repurchase)  - 2012 Mid sized Sedan.

Description: Client purchased a 2012 mid-sized sedan and began having problems with the tire pressure warning light.  The light continued to go on and the client was back and forth to the dealership seven times hoping to have the problem fixed.  After contacting the firm the vehicle manufacturer agreed to repurchase the vehicle (issue a full refund to the client) and agreed to pay attorneys fees.  This case was a difficult one to obtain a full repurchase on as the Lemon Law is mostly applicable in cases with substantial defects such as water and oil leaks, brake issues, etc…Even so, 60 days after hiring our firm the client was completely relieved of the burden the vehicle had caused. 

Lisa v. Manufacturer

Outcome: Full Refund (repurchase) - 2008 Coupe.
