Each Case Is An Expedition To Pursue Justice

James S. Kostas, the founder of the Kostas Law Firm, has always been greatly inspired by the story of Ernest Shackleton and his 1912-1915 Transantarctic expedition. Shackleton’s family motto was “through endurance one prevails” and this never-say-die motto has come to shape attorney Kostas’ practice of law and his firm’s philosophy. He treats each client’s case as an expedition in fighting to protect consumers’ rights against motor vehicle dealerships and repair shops that have access to extensive legal resources.

You Have The Right To Purchase Products That Are Free Of Defects

You Have The Right To Purchase Products That Are Free Of Defects

Your car is your lifeline to your job, grocery shopping, medical visits and other activities. But when your brakes go out or you cannot seem to get an electrical system issue addressed, it can be frustrating and costly.

If a business sold you a defective product, then it is important to understand that you may have legal options to seek compensation. California and federal lemon laws allow consumers to undertake legal action against companies who sold them defective and irreparable products. Although many of these cases involve vehicles, lemon laws cover other types of consumer products.

The California Lemon Law (Civ. Code, § 1793.22) offers consumers legal options to pursue compensation for defective motor vehicles in some cases. Depending on the circumstances, the California Lemon Law may also cover used vehicles under warranty. For used vehicles, additional requirements must be met before you can file a claim, such as the number of repair attempts made on the vehicle.

Client Testimonials

“Lemons happen. I purchased a car based on the reputation of lasting over 350,000 miles. Unfortunately, that wasn’t my experience. I had six transmissions in 60,000 miles and kept getting the run around from the dealer and the manufacturer.

I’m so glad I had James Kostas handling my case. I contacted James Kostas to represent me and in a very short period of time I was compensated for the cost of the car, all service costs and the interest I had paid on the loan. James handled everything efficiently and effectively. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services to anyone unlucky enough to end up with a lemon.”

– Nadia D.

“After numerous attempts to have the transmission repaired in our new truck, we reached out to the Kostas Law Firm. Jim obtained a compete refund of the purchase price without going to court. The manufacturer even paid Jim’s fees. We could not speak more highly of how he handled our case and highly recommend his firm to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.”

– Angela M.

“I was given the name of Jim Kostas as a lemon lawyer when I was having difficulty getting my daughter’s relatively new car’s transmission fixed by the dealership. We had already been back six times with no success. I met with Jim and described what had been going on so far. He explained what my different choices were in proceeding with a lemon law case against the manufacturer in trying to recoup my money. He was very professional and kept me informed as the case proceeded after he contacted the manufacturer and what their response was. He let me know what the likely timeline would be and possible outcomes from the manufacturer. There was no way I would have been so successful in getting an equitable refund from the manufacturer without his direction and support. I would highly recommend Jim Kostas to anyone who is seeking a professional in trying to process a lemon law case against a car manufacturer in California.”
