Consumer Fraud in the Sale of Motor Vehicles
There are many pitfalls of which consumers must be wary when purchasing a new or used vehicle. Many misrepresentations can be made by employees of car dealerships. Many facts can be concealed that should be disclosed to you. Had many consumers known the truth about their vehicles, they would not have purchased them in the first place.
Why we are the best legal firm to handle your defective car, boat, RV, consumer product or other motor vehicle case.
There are three important aspects to consider when deciding whether you are hiring the right lawyer to deal with your lemon problems. Guiding you through this process is our goal here. We believe that when you weigh these factors, you will come to the conclusion that Luxenburg & Levin, LLC is the best choice to fight your legal battle with your automobile or consumer product manufacturer.
EXPERIENCE: Mitchel Luxenburg and David Levin have over 21 years combined experience in handling consumer lemon law claims.
SERVICE: Any lawyer can say that he or she will give you great service. If you browse other law firms' web sites, you will see that nearly every one of them makes that claim. Yet it seems many lawyers have forgotten (if they ever knew) that this is a service business. From your first contact with us you will sense that our principles as lawyers are rooted in taking a personal interest in every one of our lemon law cases.
FEE ARRANGEMENT: The bottom line: You pay no attorneys' fees unless and until we earn a settlement for you and you pay nothing while your lemon law case is ongoing. In the highly unlikely event that you recover nothing, we do not earn a fee. That way, we have as much at stake in the case as you do.

- After we accept a new lemon law client, we immediately notify the manufacturer by sending a letter to its legal department outlining the defects you have endured with your lemon and the applicable state and federal laws. Most of the manufacturers have specific lawyers or employees whose jobs involve the settlement of lemon law and breach of warranty claims with law firms like ours. These people have a great deal more authority to resolve your lemon situation then the people with whom you speak when you call the phone number in the back of your warranty book. It is our experience, from talking to hundreds of consumers who have attempted to negotiate their own settlements with the vehicle manufacturers, that it will usually get you nowhere. Haven't you been through enough frustration with your lemon already?
More often than not, we are able to settle our client's claims without ever having to file a lawsuit. Most of the manufacturers understand that a prompt and reasonable settlement is in their best interest and your best interest. Usually we allow approximately 30 days for the manufacturer and its lawyers to review your claims and make an offer, although in most instances we receive an offer to settle your case sooner than that.
- If we do not receive a reasonable offer, or if we receive no response, we then proceed with litigation by filing a complaint against the manufacturer in the appropriate local court. Once the manufacturer hires an attorney to represent its interests in the case, we continue to try to settle your case. Simply because a lawsuit is filed does not mean that you will not receive a settlement. Sometimes the manufacturer just needs that extra push to see that you are serious. Historically, over 99% of all the lemon law cases our firm has handled have settled without ever having to go to trial.
The litigation process includes "discovery," which is the method by which lawyers obtain information to support their client's cases. We request documents from the manufacturer regarding the service history of your vehicle. We ask specific questions, or "interrogatories," which must be answered in writing to help narrow the issues. We have subpoenas served upon all of the dealerships and repair shops that have done work on your vehicle to obtain your repair records (if they do not provide the information voluntarily). In some cases, we will arrange for a local mechanic to perform a detailed inspection of your lemon vehicle and write us a report so that he can serve as an expert witness in your case.
Engaging in litigation and discovery does not mean that we are resolving ourselves to a trial. We have found that the most effective way to force the manufacturers to address our client's cases is to continually put pressure on them. This usually proves successful in the settlement of lemon law and breach of warranty cases. However, if a case does not settle, the appropriate level of work and preparation will have been performed for trial.
