I am so happy that I used Emma Robison to represent me. Not only was she friendly and professional, but answered all my questions and concerns promptly via email or telephone. After two years of aggravation with the leasing company she was able to get me a reasonable offer and end all of my stress. She made the whole process seem easy on my side, but I am sure she had her work cut out for her. I highly recommend Emma and I am so glad that I was able to have her represent me.read more

Pennsylvania Lemon Law Lawyers

A vehicle can be a large investment for most consumers and in exchange, consumers expect the manufacturer to stand behind their product and provide adequate customer care when the vehicle fails. However, many consumers soon realize, this is not always the case. With an attorney by your side, you not only have a guide through the legal process but someone with the knowledge and experience to confront your vehicle’s manufacturer and demand compensation.

Frequently, when attempting to resolve the matter without an attorney, a consumer will present what seems like an adequate offer, when really, the law entitles you to more. This is why it is important to have an attorney from the Robison Lemon Law Group by your side to get you every bit you deserve.

About Pennsylvania Lemon Laws

PA Lemon Law and Breach of Warranty protects consumers who purchase or lease a vehicle that requires repetitive visits to the dealership or more than a month out of service for the same substantial defect. If this is the case, you may be entitled to a repurchase, replacement or cash settlement.

Why You Need a Pennsylvania Lemon Law Lawyer

As a vehicle owner, you have the right to represent yourself in pursuing a lemon law claim. However, you should know that Manufacturers are counting on you to be unaware of the complexities of the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and state-wide Pennsylvania lemon laws.

Car companies are also prepared with financial and legal resources and can easily mount a lengthy, time-consuming and costly legal battle. If you represent yourself, a single mistake in filing or a missed deadline can reduce your claim to months of wasted time without the compensation you deserve.

That’s why hiring a Pennsylvania lemon law lawyer is the key to winning your claim. Among the legal expertise provided by a qualified attorney for lemon law, a lawyer can also do the following:

  • Navigate the complexities of federal and Pennsylvania lemon laws in order to hold manufacturers and dealers responsible for defective vehicles covered under warranty.
  • Collect all of the necessary evidence and documentation needed for your lemon law claim. This includes sales and lease agreements, records of repair attempts, the manufacturer’s warranty, and more. All of this will be needed to support your claim.
  • Communicate and negotiate with manufacturers. It is common for these companies to intimidate unsuspecting vehicle owners pursuing their own lemon law claims. So, it’s important for vehicle owners to be as prepared as possible. While a lemon law attorney may be able to resolve by negotiating directly, your lawyer will also be prepared to litigate a lemon law claim if necessary.
  • Get you the compensation you deserve. Under state laws, a Pennsylvania lemon law attorney will advocate for your compensation, whether through a buyback and replacement vehicle or a cash settlement.
