Riverside, CA asked in Lemon Law for California

Q: I filed lemon law in Calif. Lemon Law Group Partners and received a message from Chrysler agreeing to buy the vehicl

back. I have not heard from them about the buy back but they want file suit for Chrysler contacting me in violation of cease and desist order and told me not to respond to Chrysler. Are they dragging it out to bill more fees and should go ahead and contact Chrysler myself?

A: So, who knows what they are thinking other than them?

It is not clear to me that THEY contact FCA for you or if you

contacted FCA on your own first and then FCA is responding

to your contact or to their's? That could make a difference.

As a lemon law attorney myself I can tell you a few things:

a- It's rare that FCA offers a buy back without counsel involved;

b- It's more rare that they would offer all the law allows;

c- one usually gets a better result if one has counsel involved;

d- FCA will often not pay counsel or not pay much, pre-suit and will be forced

by a bad twist in the law, ironically sought out by folks like FCA,

to pay more once a case is filed in court.

Your law firm has 23 people on their website! That's a huge number

of mouths to feed. I hope they give you great service. In closing,

You should ask THEM these same questions!

They are you lawyers and they must answer

you honestly.
