I would highly recommend Johnson & Buxton. They made this process painless for our family. They were in constant communication with us throughout the entire ordeal. We were pleasantly surprised by the outcome. They were able to get us so much more than we anticipated. I know how critical reviews are when searching for legal help, especially when one can already be in a vulnerable state of mind. I hope my five-star review will bring you comfort and assurance in selecting Johnson & Buxton as your representation.

We took our vehicle many times to the dealership where we purchased it to fix an issue it was having but could not fix it. That is when we decided to reach out to Johnson and Buxton to help us with our vehicle. Mr. Buxton was great to work with. He kept us inform about everything that was going on with the case and helped us get rid of our vehicle. It was such a great experience. We are very happy with the outcome and would highly recommend Johnson & Buxton to anyone who is having issue with the vehicles that cannot be resolved.

Dealing with my faulty vehicle throughout the years was a major pain. In contrast, working with Jonathan Buxton from The Lemon Law Guys was painless. It was a very easy and smooth process right from the beginning. Jonathan was extremely responsive; I never had to wait more than a half hour for a phone call or email back. This is my first experience dealing with a Lemon Law case so I don't know what other law firm to compare the experience to. I do know, however, that I would highly recommend using.

I was so fed up one day after fixing the same issue with my car for the 6th or 7th time that I called the first lemon law lawyers that I found online. I wouldn’t typically endorse than idea, but I am so thankful that I did. Very professional, courteous and prompt. Mr. Johnson handled my case and answered every question that I had and thoroughly explained what my options were. I felt very confident in their care. Thanks to them, I came out on top with my lemon law suit.Thank you so much Johnson & Buxton, it was a pleasure!

I bought a truck but I was experiencing some troubles. I took it to the dealership and they did not fix the problem. I was getting frustrated because I was paying monthly on time and when I took it to the dealership they did not provide me another car. I was thinking keeping my truck but I decided to take a shot on the lemon law. I called three firms. But the last one JOHNSON AND BUXTON gave me a great confidence and provide me the information and guide me trough the process. I was not wrong. Dereck fought my case and won. I am very happy and I really recommend JOHNSON AND BUXTON.

I would like to say these guys are amazing. We had been having issues with our suv for five years and taken it in over 10 times for a burning smell. We were at the end of our rope when the water pump blew up. When the dealer fixed it, the burning smell got even worse and said they are not sure what it is. I was talking to a friend about my frustrations and he told me to call a lemon law attorney. I ended up calling three different companies all in LA except Johnson & Buxton.

I thought this was too good to be true. Derek told me that GM would pay his fees and get my money back for my car. And it was very true. Derek with The Lemon Law Guys was very informative and extremely effective. He kept in constant communication. Everything he said he would do he did and did it well. I am so happy with this experience. I highly recommend using Derek with The Lemon Law!

I went through this law firm with Derek and hands down was the best service. I had never had a Lemon vehicle but this car was a joke and the dealership did not want to take it back even after I took the vehicle back 9 times in 3 months for the same issue. I am glad I went through with "The Lemon Law Guys." I spoke to Derek and he explained the process step by step and although it hit in the middle of pandemic and took longer than expected he still reached out and kept me up to date with any changes headed my way. Highly recommend even if you don't live in Ventura! Keep up the good work Derek.

Many thanks to The Lemon Law Guys!! Just when you pay over $2,000 in “maintenance “ fee’s at the dealer ship and the car consistently over heating every other day. I decided look up lemon law. I didn’t know anything about cars & still don’t, but Derek really took the time to hear me out and let me provide all the information in one phone call! At the end of our first phone call Derek said we might have a good case, but it’s going to take some time and patience. Here we are a couple months down the road and I got my money back.

These guys are great. I've never had to hire an attorney before and did not know what to expect or how to pick one. After reaching out to numerous attorneys, I decided to go with Johnson & Buxton because they were the most responsive, reliable and did a great job informing me of the details. I never once felt nervous after deciding to go with them. They took care of everything and even negotiated a better deal than the car manufacturer offered. Thank you so much.

I was having an issue with my car that the dealership could not fix. I attempted to remedy my lemon vehicle situation on my own, but untimely denied a lemon law claim with the manufacture. I didn’t know what to do and thought I would be stuck with the vehicle. I was lucky to find Jonathan and Derek. “The lemon law guys”. I hired them and that all changed. My vehicle was not only purchased back by the manufacture, it was paid off, I got all of my money back and an unexpected settlement. These guys are the real deal....

I am highly impressed by, and grateful for the support and service provided by Johnson and Buxton (The Lemon Law Guys). I had a negative experience with a car dealership, but after speaking with Derek Johnson I was clear on my rights and what action to take. They attentively listened to my problem and helped me come to a resolution. I cannot recommend their service enough. They're genuine people and are here to help.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many people mistakenly think that lemon laws require three or more repair attempts during the first year of ownership. Each law sets its own requirements.

Fortunately, California’s lemon law provides some of the broadest protections to auto consumers in the nation.

Time Limit:

Q: Is there a one-year time limit for bringing a claim?

A: No. In California, you have up to four years after the warranty expires by mileage or years to file a claim. Repair History:

Q: How does California law define a reasonable number of attempted repairs?

A: Your car may be considered a lemon if you bring it to the dealer as few as two times for repair of a defect. One of those time s must be within the warranty period.

Q: Can a dealer take as long as it wants to fix my car while it is under the manufacturer’s warrant?

A: No. California’s lemon law may presume that your car is a lemon if it has been serviced for more than 30 days, consecutive or not.

Although the protections of California’s lemon law are consumer-friendly, its legal procedures don’t always seem that way. Although you have the right to handle a lemon law claim on your own, you may not end up with the full amount that you deserve. Simply said, automakers do no pay claims willingly. More importantly, why would you put yourself through the hassle when there is no cost for using our law firm?

At the Lemon Law Guys, we will bring nearly 20 years of experience to your case. The process begins with a free initial consultation, where we will evaluate the merits of your case. If we recommend filing a lawsuit, there is still no cost to you. If you win, the manufacturer must pay all your legal fees. Our hourly legal fees and costs do not come out of your recovery. That means there is no cost to you for hiring an attorney. You really have nothing to lose.

From our law office in Ventura, we handle cases in the Los Angeles area and throughout California.

If you win your lemon law case, the manufacturer can make restitution in several ways.

Repurchase, or buyback, is the most common option, where the manufacturer will compensate you for your down payment, monthly payments, registration, and possibly some additional damages. The manufacturer will then register the vehicle in its own name and mark the certificate as a “lemon law buyback.” The manufacturer may be entitled to make a deduction for miles driven prior to the first repair attempt.

It may seem intimidating to assert your rights against a big manufacturer. However, the law really is on your side. For example, if a car manufacturer unreasonably rejects buyback when it is reasonable, you may be entitled to a civil penalty of up to three times the value of your car.

When you have the experience of the Lemon Law Guys on your side, you won’t have to worry about being intimidated or the legal complexities of the law. You also have nothing to lose, as the manufacturer must pay your attorney’s fees if you win. Find out today how you can get a lemon off your hands.

Remember, the law also covers your attorney’s fees. Whether you win or lose your case, you never have to worry about the cost of standing up for your rights as a car consumer.
