Steve attended Oakland University in Rochester and obtained his B.A. in history in 1989. He attended Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles and received his J.D. in 1991. Admitted to practice in Michigan that same year, he has been practicing state wide with an emphasis on Lemon Law claims and Consumer Protection issues. Besides claims involving automobile warranties, he has represented countless Michigan residents who have purchased defective products, including everything from recreational vehicles and boats to sewing machines and furniture.

A Proven Record
Steve Lehto has been practicing exclusively in the field of Michigan Consumer Protection and Lemon Law for almost 20 years. In that time, he has represented consumers who have had the misfortune of buying defective cars, trucks, SUVs, sewing machines, personal watercraft, boats, RVs, furniture, appliances and more. In that time, he has gotten countless vehicles re-purchased by the manufacturers, and obtained money damages for thousands of consumers. Unfortunately, most big businesses will not take care of you when they sell you a defective product they cannot repair. The good news is that the laws can protect you and help you get your money back.
