If you are a resident of NJ, and have registered the vehicle in NJ, you are entitled to the protections of the NJ New Car Lemon Law (even if the purchase was made in PA). You should sit down with an attorney in your area who regularly handles these sorts of cases to discuss the details of your situation. Only a qualified attorney who has an opportunity to review your documentation and see your videos is in a position to give you advice. Likewise, the NJ Consumer Fraud Act applies here.
Based on what you're saying here, you may have a claim under the lemon law b/c the damaged paint job will have an effect on the value of the new vehicle (and affect your ability to enjoy it). However, you do need to give them either: 3 visits for the same problem or have a total of 20 shop days spent on one issue - that hasn't happened yet.

I met with an attorney in Newark NJ for legal advice on filing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy because my car was repossessed. The attorney met me in the parking area adjacent to the building because she was afraid to turn her car off. We spoke for about 10...
There's a lot I find questionable about this attorney's alleged conduct.
I would strongly suggest you send her a letter, via Certified mail (return receipt requested - it'll cost you ~$7) demanding repayment of the fee, in full.
I would also say that it may be unethical to use client funds for personal purchases; client funds should not be dispersed to the attorney until work is completed, not before. If your attorney doesn't get your money back to you, you might consider reaching out to the Office of Attorney Ethics.See question
recently I took my car to have the head gasket and timing belt replaced. I paid almost 3K. As soon as I picked my car up; I hear two loud noises by the serpentine belt and inside the engine. the car runs good it is just the noise. I brought the ca...
If you think there's something wrong with the car, take it to another mechanic (with a good reputation, or a dealership if need be) to have it looked at, first. There might be nothing wrong with it.
On the other hand, if there IS some problem, you're going to need (and will have created) good evidence proving there's a problem with the bad repair.
Right now, there's no controversy: you merely suspect there's a problem. You may be correct - but you don't KNOW it yet because you haven't had someone who knows what he/she is doing look under the hood.

Was previously involved with someone who ended up having a girlfriend. I threatened to tell her about us and turns out he had multiple videos and pictures of me performing sexual acts on him and he is threatening to expose me. I never knew these v...
I would strongly urge you to sit down with an attorney to discuss this matter in more detail (not necessarily excruciating detail, mind you). While NJ is a one-party recording statute with respect to conversations, taking video of someone performing a sex act without his or her consent is another thing, entirely. It may be actionable in civil court and also may be a crime under certain circumstances (for example, if it were used as blackmail.)

Ford approved a vehicle replacement under NJ Lemon Law. The dealership has repeatedly sold the replacements while the RAV worksheet process was under review, 2 times already. It's been over 3 months. How much longer can the dealership continue to ...
There is no specific statute of limitations with respect to when the replacement vehicle is provided, once the matter is resolved. Generally speaking, we deal in terms of what's commercially reasonable under the circumstances. Without a thorough review of your claims and the rest of the documentation in the file, it's impossible to know whether something fishy is going on here. In addition, it's difficult to know replacement vehicles that are allegedly "for you" are being sold; they may simply be inventory in stock. Again, without looking at the entirety of the file, I cannot say with any certainty.
Without knowing how long you're waiting for a replacement vehicle, it's hard to say 'how long' the dealer can do anything - assuming anything they've done is improper (which I don't know, based on the info provided).
If you have an attorney - speak to your attorney about this. If you don't, contact the NJ Dept of Consumer Affairs.See question

based on what you're saying, there's a potential for a claim here for (among other things) consumer fraud. Movers are subject to fairly strict regulations, as another colleague noted.
That said, you should sit down with an attorney to determine whether you were taken advantage of, to what extent, and what you could/should do about it.

it still be under warranty. , And will a finance company finance a lemon. Why wont the dealership give me the option to put me in a new car,
The NJ Dept of Consumer Affairs has a pretty good pamphlet on topic, I've attached it here.
Essentially, if your new car has less than 24,000 miles on it and experiences a repeating issue 3 or more times that can be fixed OR is in the shop more than 20 days for any reason, it might be a lemon. There are always proof issues and you have some procedural hurdles to deal with (is the issue one that "subtantially impairs the safety/value/use& enjoyment" of the vehicle is a big one) and notice requirements. You can go directly to the Dept of consumer Affairs OR hire an attorney.
In your case, if they fixed the engine and you're happy, there are still issues with the value of the vehicle-as-repaired vs the vehicle as if new that could be actionable.
NJ lemon law cases will garner successful plaintiffs attorneys fees/costs plus the full value of the car (less a carve-out for use depreciation)See question
My step daughter is suing me, as the executor of my husband's estate. She has not provided official school records, complete answers to the interogatory and other documentation. What is the likely hood of a motion to compel being granted, and ...
This is an impossible question to answer reliably in the absence of a thorough understanding of the entire case. This is one crucial reason retaining an attorney is essential to making the most of your case (in general).
That said, courts will routinely grant a motion to compel discovery where the information requested is accessible and relevant and does not require the responding party to act beyond the confines of the Rules of Court. From your question, it's usually a given the judge will compel answers to interrogatories and doc requests.
However, where school records are concerned, there might be an alternative way to get them (i.e. via the Open Public Records Act) and the judge might rule you should get them yourself.

Based on the foregoing, you need to sit down with an attorney immediately to go over the case. I don't like to Monday-morning quarterback another attorney's efforts (especially without knowing what she/he did) but it does appear that your current attorney may not be doing the best possible job. If you want to fire your attorney, you do have that right.
That said, an engine failure should have been IMMEDIATELY fixed by the manufacturer at a dealership's shop.
