After years of representing large automobile manufacturers, Mr. Cousins became concerned about the consumers who lost good cases because of poor or no representation. So he switched sides.
Cousins Law Firm has reviewed over 4,000 Lemon Law related matters and has represented clients from all over the United States. As such, we have the skills and experience to take care of your needs.
At the Lemon Law hearing the manufacturers have a team of skilled lawyers or representatives to argue their position; the Lemon Law arbitrators have an attorney from the Office of the Attorney General to answer their questions about the law. You too need to have skilled representation in your corner!
Cousins Law Firm's team of lawyers is fighting for your rights in the areas of Lemon Law and consumer fraud. Several of the cases we have prosecuted have had national significance and many of them have changed or affirmed state laws in favor of the consumer. Our goal is to not only provide the best legal services to victimized consumers who are our clients, but to level the playing field for car consumers in general.
Once retained, Cousins Law Firm will focus all its resources toward securing your monetary refund or replacement vehicle. If you do not qualify for Lemon Law relief we will explore the law for other consumer remedies that may apply to your particular case.
Your Lemon Law rights do not last forever. The Florida legislature has created a Lemon Law rights period, namely, the first 24 months after the date you take delivery of your motor vehicle. All defects should appear during the Lemon Law rights period for you to have a valid Lemon Law action. You then have 60 days after your Lemon Law rights period ends to seek arbitration under the Florida Lemon Law.
If you have had at least three repair attempts for the same problem, or if your vehicle has been out of service (in the manufacturer authorized repair facility) for a cumulative total of 30 days, your vehicle may be a lemon.
Imagine that your coach was out of service for over 120 days! That is the unfortunate experience of Mr. and Mrs. Jennings who purchased a 2004 National Tropical for approximately $175,000. Cousins Law Firm successfully represented the Jennings throughout the Lemon Law Process, resulting in a decision which labeled this vehicle a lemon and caused Freightliner Chassis to buy the vehicle back.
