We represent Colorado consumers, in Federal Court, who have purchased a motor vehicle with a nonconformity (“manufacturing defect”) that renders the vehicle useless or so inconvenient that a reasonable buyer would not have purchased the vehicle had he/she known of the defect.

We are very selective! The criteria required in order for us to agree to representation is as follows:


New or Used (as long as the initial repair attempts were made under the original express warranty)

3 or more repair attempts on the same component or 5 total repair attempts within the express manufacturer warranty period and the last repair attempt occurred within the last twelve months; and/or the vehicle is out of service for a cumulative period of 30 days or more for a warranty repair or attempted repair and that attempted/warranty repair occurred within the last twelve months.

We do not count manufacturer recalls as repair attempts. However, if a recall takes the vehicle out of service for 30 days or more, and the recall was made within the last 12 months, that case meets our requirements.

Vehicle repair


  1. You initiate contact with our office by completing an online form, sending us an email or calling us about problems you are experiencing with your vehicle.

  2. One of our team members calls you to get important details about the problems you are experiencing with your vehicle.

  3. If you qualify, our team member will send you a retainer agreement and questionnaire to be completed and signed electronically.

  4. Next we will request you send your repair order and your sales documents.

  5. Once we receive the requested documents, we conduct an extensive investigation about your vehicle including research about recalls, lawsuits, warranty and repair history, VIN# research, blog research, & manufacturer bulletins about your vehicle.

  6. Next our attorney evaluates your case and prepares a lawsuit or a notice of demand to send to the manufacturer so that the manufacturer has notice of the claim and requires them to evaluate your case.

  7. Our attorney then takes the proper steps to advocate for you to recover for you an appropriate settlement award or verdict.


If you qualify, absolutely. Typically [80%] recovery is anywhere 5% to 20% of the purchase price. The range depends on the number of repairs, nature of the repairs. mileage on the vehicle and days out of service. In some instances, the damages will exceed 20% due to the extent of the defect, circumstances, and days out of service. In the event the defect renders the vehicle useless, or so unsafe that a reasonable person would not drive the vehicle, then the buyer may be entitled to a repurchase. A repurchase is where the manufacturer reimburses you for what you paid, pays off any outstanding balance. However, the manufacturer may seek credit for the milage on the vehicle.

The law provides that if the buyer proves a manufacturing defect with vehicle that the manufacturer is liable for the buyers’ attorney fees. Part of our investigation and evaluation process is to identify manufacturing defects. When we proceed, we are confident we can prove a manufacturing defect. Thus, we seek our attorney fees from the manufacturer. If a settlement can be reached, the fees will be part of the settlement agreement. If the case goes to trial, the fees will be part of a verdict or order. Either way, you are not required to pre-pay fees, pay a retainer or pay fees in the event we fail to make a recovery on your behalf.

The Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act is a United States federal law (15 U.S.C. § 2301 et seq.) that governs warranties on consumer products. The law does not require any product to have a warranty (it may be sold “as is”), but if it does have a warranty, the warranty must comply with this law. The law was created to fix problems as a result of manufacturers using disclaimers on warranties in an unfair or misleading manner and provides consumers with remedies for violation of express and implied warranties.
