The length of time to reach a settlement in a California Lemon Law case depends on many factors including the nature of the problems you have experienced and whether a lawsuit needs to be filed. While most cases will settle prior to a trial, the length of time to get to trial varies from County to County and even from Judge to Judge. No matter how long a case takes to be resolved, you control whether your lemon law case will settle. Quite simply, settlement is always your decision. A lawyer may recommend a settlement and counsel you on your rights, but a lawyer may never decide when to accept an offer of settlement.
