I was having an obvious problem with my brand new car; the dealer and manufacturer claimed they couldn't find anything wrong so there was nothing to fix. Tim pursued the case and was able to get us a full repurchase on our very difficult situation and without going to trial. The car was eventually, despite much resistance from the manufacturer, confirmed to have a significant safety issue.
Tim was always very prompt, emailing on nights and weekends if needed, and kept me informed at all turns. He took the time to understand our specific case and allowed me to be involved to the extent I wanted. Everyone I spoke with at the firm was very friendly and helpful (if Tim was not available, which was rare).
Tim was very knowledgeable about the laws surrounding Lemon issues and was able to pursue the case in a unique way. Tim was very measured in his approach - not to aggressive and not too passive - which I feel was critical to our situation and which I appreciated greatly. I also felt that he was also very personally vested in his cases - he truly cares about the people he helps.
This was such a great experience despite it being a very poor situation to be in to begin with. If you need help with your vehicle, contact Tim!
If I sent Timothy an email he always responded right away. He was very professional and told me what to expect through the entire process. If you have a vehicle that you need help with, I highly recommend this Lawyer.
I was in the middle of chaos, confusion, and desperation when I reached out to Tim Abeel for help. I was so incredibley pleased with what he did for me. He always kept me informed, he was very quick to respond, and he did what I thought would be impossible. I truly cannot thank him enough, and I would recommend him to anyone!
After negotiating with the manufacturer of the vehicle for repairs without success, Tim secured a refund for the entire purchase price of the vehicle within 14 days of engaging him. Great result - thanks Tim!
I was so frustrated and didn't know where to turn after my car was back to the garage again for the sixth time. I decided too look up a lemon law layer, and came across Tim. I clicked on the link and to my surprise the phone was ringing it was Tim. We went over a few things about the problems of the car. And he told me i had a case so I went through with it. The process was very smooth and easy. Today i had a weigh lifted off my shoulders when the car was returned to the dealership where it was purchased two years prior. Tim was able to get the manufacturer to re purchase the car. I was real pleased with Tim & Tracey for they help to get me through this ordeal and i would highly recommend Tim . Thank you so much for your help....(~;
We contacted Tim on a potential 'Lemon Law' issue for a 2014 SUV. Tim immediately responded that we did, in fact have recourse with the manufacturer. He worked tirelessly to secure a comparable vehicle and always kept us apprised of what was happening and anything we needed to do. Any question we had, he answered, his customer service and professionalism is beyond reproach. He was a true pleasure to work with and did secure a 2015 vehicle, through several negotiations with the manufacturer. He continued to work with us and answer questions we had, even after the fact. We would highly recommend him and his services!
Tim was great to work with! We had a recent problem with a brand new 2014 SUV that we leased and had in our possession for about 6 months months. The brakes would sometimes get stuck on while driving, even after you released your foot off the brake. The car would then not allow you to accelerate . In essence, it was as if an emergency brake was stuck on and there was no way to get it off. This happened many times on our brand new car with under 3,000 miles! After we brought the car in numerous times for service repairs, we were still having these brake and acceleration issues. It was a very dangerous and scary problem, especially since the car was a family car, mainly for my wife and baby.
After several attempted fixes by the company, as well as speaking to the car manufacturer's Corporate department ourselves with no resolution, we retained Timothy Abeel to help us and to pursue a claim under the lemon law. Tim was able to get the car manufacturer to settle very QUICKLY, in about 2 weeks after we hired him!! Literally, within days of Tim contacting the car manufacturer, they offered to settle. Days later, we had reached an agreement - we received a full refund for our entire lease, including all fees and lease payments! We were so happy and shocked that it was that easy after all the stress we had for months. Our only wish was that we had contacted Tim sooner!
Tim handled the process for us quickly and efficiently. He always communicated with us and was genuinely concerned about the safety issue with our car. Thanks for all your help, Tim!
I contacted Tim about three months ago concerning a long-standing steering/NVH issue with new diesel SUV. The steering wheel had a persistent oscillation at 70mph that could not be cured despite countless tire replacements, alignment and balance jobs, and replacement of many suspension components. This was a replacement vehicle provided by the manufacturer after the first also exhibited this problem. I had been told by a representative that the manufacturer would not consider a repurchase or replacement since they had already done so once.
After spending far too much time and worry getting the first vehicle replaced myself, I decided seek representation. I'm so glad I did. Tim was able to negotiate a refund of every penny spent on the vehicle including purchase price, tax and doc fees, and repair expenses. He communicated clearly via email and telephone calls, allowing this to be taken care of very efficiently. All documentation was transmitted electronically, saving a lot of time and annoyance dealing with faxes and mail. At every step, he clearly advised me of strategy and issues allowing me to make informed decisions.
This manufacturer was particularly difficult and only offered an acceptable settlement the day before a scheduled hearing, ending a 16 month saga. I am certain that I only received the desired outcome through retaining Tim.
Tim was able to help me get money for my car with over 30,000 miles! The engine had to be replaced. Even though my situation didn't fall into the Lemon Law guidelines he was still able to get me a lot of money back for my losses! The process was a piece of cake. Tim took care of everything. He kept me informed of what was going on. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend him to anyone. Thank you again Tim!
Two month old car with just 4000 miles in the shop for an entire month straight without even a definite diagnosis. The mfg and dealer would not even talk compensation until just a few hours after they were contacted by Timothy Abeel . Save yourself the frustration . I am so happy I called this attorney.
