A: You need to contact a good "Lemon Law" attorney in your area. With as many car dealerships and car sales as you have in AZ, there will be some. Contact your local bar association for a referral. The question is not "How many hours?" but "Can you take this on a contingent fee and get paid out of recovery? And can we get Attorney's fees from the dealership?" You don't want to be hiring an attorney by the hour on this one. My ball park: 250 hours for a litigation through trial. Collecting is more.
