The Lemon Law in Maryland provides completely cost-free legal help to distressed drivers who have purchased or leased a defective vehicle. If you are driving a lemon, the Lemon Law firm of Kimmel & Silverman may be able to help.
Kimmel & Silverman has provided cost-free Lemon Law help to more than 85,000 consumers throughout the Northeast.

The Maryland Lemon Law covers vehicles that have a significant non-conformity which can not be fixed after a reasonable number of repair attempts (normally four), or a serious braking or steering problem which can't be fixed after the first try.
Under the Lemon Law, the non-conformity must occur in the first 24 months of ownership or 18,000 miles, whichever comes first.
The MD Lemon Law also covers vehicles that have been out of service 30 or more days within the first 24 months or 18,000 miles, whichever comes first.
If you're interested, we encourage you to review the current Maryland Lemon Law Statute.
Even if you do not fall under the provisions of the Maryland Lemon Law, you still could be entitled to a remedy under the Federal Breach of Warranty Law, known as the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act.
