Do I need an attorney to pursue a lemon law claim? Having an attorney is not a prerequisite to exercising your consumer rights, but it is very helpful.

Having a knowledgeable attorney on your side with the resources to resolve a contested case can lead to a favorable outcome more quickly than pursuing the claim on your own.
