The definitive consumer litigation treatise concerning defective new and used cars (including leased vehicles), manufactured homes, new homes, home improvements, automobile repairs, service contracts, assistive devices, and more.

The Definitive Treatise

  • Fourteen ways to defeat an “as is” used car sale and ten ways to overcome contractual limitations on remedies
  • Practical advice and 50-state analysis of state lemon law litigation: discovery, inspections, alternative dispute resolution, settlement, trial and remedies
  • Federal and state statutes offering special rights concerning manufactured home defects
  • Comprehensive analysis of all UCC Article 2 warranty rights, including rights to withhold payments and revoke acceptance of delivered goods
  • Powerful tort and state statutory claims where other warranty law is inadequate
  • Sample pleadings and discovery. See an example here.



“We had the NCLC’s Consumer Warranty Law manual on our desk throughout the entire five-week jury trial. It was essential not just for quick reference to essential points of law but also for specific jury charge language and evidentiary matters. One cannot practice consumer law professionally without having the full complement of the NCLC’s manuals.” —Michael D. Donovan, Donovan Litigation Group, LLC
