Michael Saunders

A Team in Your Corner

With a track record of over 3,000 successful cases in California, I am known as the expert in the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, commonly known as the Lemon Law. As a California native, my passion for our state's laws led me to specialize in consumer advocacy 25 years ago, filling a crucial need for expert representation.

Beyond my comprehensive knowledge of the California lemon laws, my success is rooted in more than just legal expertise. My positive and longstanding relationships with manufacturers play a crucial role in expediting my clients' cases. Additionally, when you work with me, you communicate directly with me—no intermediaries like assistants or paralegals. I am fully committed to personally handling your case every step of the way.

What sets me apart is my fluency in the precise approach needed to secure a successful outcome for your defective product, whether it's a car, truck, boat, motorcycle, or even a jet ski. Over the course of 25 years, I have honed this process into a science, knowing the exact formula for success.

On a personal note, I am proud to call the beautiful city of San Diego my home. I graduated from the University of California, Davis, and later attended the Thomas Jefferson School of Law. I look forward to you having my cell number saved as "world's best lemon lawyer," in your contacts.

Success Stories

Full Refund

2018 Chevrolet Malibu with faulty transmission triggering a check engine light and causing loss of power to the vehicle. After four trips to the dealership for warranty repairs, the problem persisted. The client contacted our office and received a refund under the California Lemon Law.

Full Refund

2017 Chevrolet 2500 Crew Cab Pickup experienced a loss of power and illuminated check engine light due to the vehicle's electrical system. The vehicle spent a total of 31 days at the dealership for warranty repairs. When the symptoms returned, the customer called us for guidance. Forty-five days later, the truck was sent back to the manufacture, and a refund check was handed to our client.

New Replacement Vehicle

2018 Kia Sorento was experiencing serious engine issues leading to engine replacement which did not permanently fix the problem. Illuminated check engine light and loss of power continued to plague the vehicle. The client attempted to work things out on his own with the manufacturer's customer service department but ultimately was told he did not have rights under the California Lemon Law. When the client called our office, the case was settled with a new replacement vehicle in 53 days.
