Not sure if I mentioned this before but I am an attorney and I specialize in the Lemon Law. If I have, I haven’t actually gotten into the meat of it in a year or so. At least, not in the podcast.

This website may supply general information about the law but it is for informational purposes only. This does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not meant to constitute legal advice, so the good news is we’re not billing you by the hour for reading this. The bad news is that you shouldn’t act upon any of the information without consulting a qualified professional attorney who will, probably, bill you by the hour.
