About me

Over 7 years! We exclusively litigate Auto Dealer Fraud, Lemon Law and Class Actions. Millions recovered against almost every major manufacturer and automobile dealership in CA. Prior to litigation Margarian founded and managed a auto dealership/brokerage, gaining inside knowledge of the automotive industry. He has litigated cases against Intel Corporation, Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc., Honda North America, Inc., Aston Martin Lagonda of North America, Inc., BMW of North America, LLC, Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC, Keyes European, LLC, Rusnak Enterprises, LLC and Wells Fargo Auto Finance, Inc. From the working class to the corporate elite - if you have an issue related to your vehicle then you need to contact us. We bill at $500 per hour and make the dealer or manufacturer pay our fees. You get top notch representation at no out of pocket cost to you.


We would like to announce the 2014 Margarian Scholarship. The scholarship is rewarded to a select number of students for their academic and personal achievements. The scholarship application deadline is June 30, 2014.
