You don't pay a lemon lawyer, the manufacturer does.

First they have to determine if its a true lemon case.. Lawyers may seek to get their fees from the manufactuerer in that case..however a lawyer is not going to do anything without getting paid something up front and that means OP would be paying and seeking re-imbursement after the fact

You must have never lemoned a car before then.

Or if you have, I suggest finding a new lawyer to work with.

And I am not debating this at all..but someone needs to pay a retainer upfront for the lawyer unless they handle the whole thing on contingency.which I am not sure of with lemons

Here in California lemon law cases are handled on contingency. No $ up front at all because the manufacturer pays the lawyer fee's. So most lawyers won't even take a lemon law case unless it is a slam dunk because they know if they lose they won't get paid. Simple.

I was under the wrong assumption that you understood the lemon lawyer a little. My apologies.

Now you know
