Disclaimer and Legal Stuff
Burdge Law Office web sites are provided as a public service by our Consumer Protection Law firm for information purposes only. The information on our web sites is intended for consumers only and is not intended to be specific legal advice and should not be taken or construed as legal advice because each case’s facts are different.
We strongly advise consumers to contact the Consumer Law attorneys at Burdge Law Office by phone (1.888.331.6422) or email info@NewCarLemonLaw.com with your specific questions and to get specific answers to your problems.
Visiting our web sites and emails sent to or received from our law firm does not constitute an attorney-client relationship with Burdge Law Office Co LPA unless a written attorney-client agreement has been entered into with Burdge Law Office. It is important to know that no attorney can guarantee the outcome of any dispute or case, including one under Consumer Law, Lemon Law, Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, Breach of Warranty, Sales Fraud, or Dealer Fraud Laws.
In most Lemon Law cases and many Dealer Sales Fraud cases and other Consumer Law cases, Burdge Law Office does not charge fees to clients because we use fee-shifting statutes that make payment of your attorney fees the legal responsibility of the manufacturer or dealer or other merchant in your case. Under these fee-shifting Consumer Protection laws, if the consumer prevails then the manufacturer or dealer in your case is responsible for paying your attorney fees and legal costs in addition to your recovery or in some cases as part of a settlement offer in your case. If the consumer proceeds with a case and participates but does prevail, in those fee shifting cases there is absolutely no cost for our attorney services.
The attorneys at Burdge Law Office also help clients in cases involving dealer sales fraud and Consumer Protection Law class action claims. These are usually handled on a contingency and/or fee shifting basis depending on the facts of each case. When handled that way, there is no fee if the consumer does not prevail. Any questions, comments or suggestions regarding Burdge Law Office web sites can be directed to Ronald Burdge, founder and President of Burdge Law Office, at info@NewCarLemonLaw.com.
For purposes of meeting the different requirements various states’ Rules of Attorney Ethics, the attorneys at Burdge Law Office want to tell you the following additional information:
The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. Before you decide, ask us to send you free written information about our qualifications and experience.
No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.
All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered.
A lawyer or law firm may not ethically guarantee the outcome of any legal claim and Burdge Law Office and its attorneys do not intend to communicate otherwise. Every case is different and every state has unique and specific legal requirements to have a successful claim. Consumers are urged to speak with an experienced Consumer Law lawyer about their case and the applicable law.
Before deciding the strength or merit of your anticipated legal action, please remember that other web sites on the internet may be filled with biased or incorrect information, and that some web sites may not even disclose all the relevant or accurate information that you may need to know.
In deciding on what attorney or law firm to let handle your claim or your case, you should feel comfortable that you have chosen an experienced lawyer and law firm. There is no substitute for experience and reputation.
In spite of that we often see other lawyers (usually much younger and with much less experience) whose web site copies much of our content and tries to pass it off as their own. A good example is the Lemon Law test we invented and which many other law firms then plagiarized and copied. Don’t be confused by copycats. We’ve been representing consumers against vehicle manufacturers and dealers since 1978. No one else else can say that.
