The essence of the legal presumption is that, by using evidence to inform specific facts within a case, a court can then ‘presume’ that the facts are true. These facts may then be used within the context of applicable laws, logic, or individual rights to build a case. A legal presumption, using common evidence and facts, will stand true in court until it is disproven by a preponderance of the evidence that shows otherwise.
Legal presumptions apply to all sorts of legal situations, with examples including the presumption of sanity (a person is presumed sane and fit for trial unless otherwise proven), the presumption of constitutionality (that federal, state, and local laws are drafted in accordance with the U.S. Constitution), and presumption of mailing (that a properly addressed letter given to the postal service was delivered to the addressee). In the United States of America, one of the most common legal presumptions that we’re all familiar with is that, in a court of law, an accused person is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. In such an instance, the legal presumption is challenged by the prosecution, who attempts to deliver new evidence and reasoning that demonstrates that the legal presumption of innocence does not hold and that the defendant is guilty.
Just as well, the legal presumption is also used in lemon law to make determinations about what constitutes a lemon, and this, in turn, can inform how a lemon law court proceeding will continue.
While lemon law presumption in California differs from state to state, most follow the same basic structure. In the state of California, your vehicle falls under Lemon Law Presumption if the following occurs within 18 months or 18,000 miles of purchasing your vehicle:

I spoke directly to Mr. Shainfeld who helped guide me through the lemon law process. He was always responsive to me both via phone and emails. He was prompt and professional. Hopefully I do not have any further issues with my car in the future, but if I do I will contact Shainfeld Law.
Prompt and Professional
Brett and his team was truly amazing to work with. From my very first contact through their chat capabilities on their website to the very last conversation with Brett. Being our first lemon claim for our 2018 Audi e-tron we were intimidated by what the process could be and didn’t know what to expect. Brett and his team made everything so easy to understand and seamless.

Brett was truly amazing to work with. Everything was so easy — from our initial call to the very last conversation. This was our very first lemon claim (2018 Audi e-tron) and was slightly intimidated by what the process could be and didn’t know what to expect. Brett and his team made everything so easy to understand and seamless. He’s quick, efficient, very reliable. He is super clear up front with the process and quickly answers any questions you have. I would highly recommend Brett if you are looking for lemon law attorney. We couldn’t have done it without him.
Everything Was So Easy
After the torture we went through with our dealership on our Lemon Law car and the subsequent challenge of trying to find a responsive, knowledgeable attorney to represent our case, we were at our wit’s end and highly skeptical when we found Brett Shainfeld. However, we found Brett to be clear, communicative, immediately responsive and confident. He adapted quickly to our preferred mode of communication (electronic or voicemail, rather than live discussions), and consistently kept us informed as to what was happening with our case, as well as what to expect next. And the best part is that he successfully negotiated our case with the manufacturer.
Brett was the best attorney we’ve had the opportunity to work with. If we ever need a Lemon Law attorney again, we won’t hesitate to use Brett.
