Greater Los Angeles-Area Automobile Mediation
In Southern California, everyone drives everywhere, so when a car repeatedly breaks down it can be incredibly inconvenient and frustrating. Phyllis Pollack, President of PGP Mediation in Los Angeles, California, frequently mediates disputes between automobile dealers and vehicle owners based on state and federal lemon laws. In fact, approximately 85 percent of the cases she mediated during 2011, and 77 percent of the matters she mediated during 2012, involved lemon law issues. In total, Ms. Pollack estimates that she has mediated over 900 matters involving lemon law/consumer fraud issues relating to automobiles.
Lemon laws protect consumers who have purchased automobiles that repeatedly fail to meet standards of quality and performance. Lemon Law mediation allows those consumers and automobile dealers to avoid the lengthy and expensive litigation process by bringing them together with a neutral, third-party mediator who can help them find a solution that they can both agree upon.
