Georgia Lemon Law Information

First and foremost, Georgia's current motor vehicle warranty law ("Lemon Law") applies to the purchase or lease of a NEW VEHICLE ONLY! It does NOT apply to the purchase or lease of a USED vehicle! Also, it is important to note that problems or disputes related to the purchase of a used vehicle sold "as is" generally present EXTREMELY difficult burdens to overcome and, when litigated by consumers/purchasers, are unsuccessful much more often than not.

Keep in mind that there are two distinct versions of Georgia's Lemon Law, each applicable depending upon the time of the vehicle's purchase. The older version is/was known as the Georgia "Motor Vehicle Warranty Rights Act" and applies to vehicles purchased, leased or registered in GA BEFORE January 1, 2009. The other, later version, is known as the "Georgia Lemon Law Act", applies to vehicles purchased, leased or registered in GA on or AFTER to January 1, 2009. Of course the former statute is becoming less and less applicable as time goes on, and only in rare circumstances - such as when a formal complaint and repair attempt was made within the initial one-year period following January 1, 2009 - will it apply.

If applicable, you understand and agree that neither I nor my firm perform, nor have or do we hold ourselves out as performing, "credit repair" services as such term is defined under the Credit Repair Organizations Act (15 U.S.C. § 1679 et seq.)[or any other related state or federal law or rule]. Thus, while the end result of certain of my legal services may result in the improvement of one's credit or credit score, to the extent I am engaged by a client to help him or her with any matter that involves the FCRA or other aspects of consumer credit, my services are limited to assisting with legitimate problems or disputes about erroneous or inaccurate information [i.e. reported with "less than maximum accuracy" as defined by the FCRA and caselaw] and, as with all other aspects of my practice, I do not and cannot promise a particular or favorable outcome. Furthermore, if and when I am retained to represent a client in conjunction with a disputed/inaccurate credit related matter [whether exclusively or along with other legal issues], the scope of my representation is not limited solely to or with a view towards "credit improvement". Rather, such matters comprise only a part of the overall scope of my representation. In addition, neither I nor my office is a "mortgage loan originator" or lender as defined by either the GA Residential Mortgage Act [e.g. O.C.G.A. § 7-1-1000 et seq.] and or the Federal S.A.F.E. Act [Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008] and any mortgage or loan related services provided by me or my firm are or would be ancillary to the representation of the client and or otherwise exempt from the purview of same. Finally, neither I, my office nor the facsimile or telephone number(s) listed herein - or contained in any documents or links included or posted on this website - accept any commercial or advertising communications of any kind, which is strictly prohibited, and any provision or inclusion thereof; is not intended as a waiver of any protections granted by the TCPA, JFPA, CAN-SPAM Act(s) or any other applicable laws & and shall not create or give rise to a "business relationship".
