Ex-Ford Attorney Reinstated in Lemon Law Suit Against Carmaker

Founder, Mr. Payam Shahian, allowed to represent consumers bringing breach-of-warranty allegations against Ford.

See Khani v. Ford Motor Company, 215 Cal. App. 4th 916 (April 2, 2013). On appeal, in a precedent-setting decision, the California Court of Appeal held that Ford cannot prevent Mr. Shahian from representing a consumer suing Ford, even though he previously represented Ford against the same type of claim and/or in the same area of law.

Consumer Protection

When consumers make purchases, they put trust in businesses and corporations to provide a safe, effective and reliable product or service. When these corporations fail to provide properly functioning products, it impacts your financial situation.


Lemon Law

Nothing is more frustrating than buying a new car, lease car, or truck, that turns out to be a lemon. Fortunately, consumer protection statutes, also known as lemon laws, provide a remedy for people affected by defective motor vehicles.

Class Action Cases & Results

Keegan v. American Honda Motor Co, Inc.

We served as class counsel on behalf of current and former owners of certain Honda Civic vehicles allegedly experiencing a suspension issue which may result in uneven or premature tire wear. In doing so, we achieved multi-state class certification and negotiated a nationwide settlement that provides for free replacement of the vehicles’ control arms, reimbursement for previous control arm replacements, and reimbursement for tires replaced due to premature tire wear.

Kennedy-Lebar v. Volkswagen Group of America, Inc.

We served as class counsel on behalf of current and former owners of certain Audi and Volkswagen vehicles allegedly equipped with defective headlights. In doing so, we negotiated a nationwide class settlement that provides for, among other things, full reimbursement for the costs of repairing or replacing the headlights and a 5-year/50,000-mile warranty extension for headlight parts.

What our Clients Are Saying

My whole family owes SLP a big "Thank You"! We had purchased 3 cars that started having problems in the first 6 months. SLP took our case and all we had to do is give them the information about our purchase and the problems with the cars and we were done. SLP told us,"If you win nothing, we get nothing". After about 1 year, we got a call from SLP with the terms of a fantastic settlement. Now, we are just waiting to hear where to turn in the cars so we can get our settlement. THANK YOU SLP!!!! - Gary A., Mill Valley, CA
