The Best Consumer Protection Attorney Ever
I must say this has been one of the most pleasant and beneficial experience I’ve ever had with a lawyer. Mr. Kassel has made this process so easy and really fought to defend my rights as a consumer after a car dealership sought to take advantage of me by stealing more money than what was advertised. Because of him I was able to get my money back. I’m so thankful that I found him and I advise anyone in a similar situation to reach out and hire this attorney immediately to maintain your peace of mind. If you have a case he will fight for you till the end!

Life Changer
David was phenomenal. I was in a very bad position with my business drowning in MCA loans. After talking to David I started to feel a little better then after hiring him everything became so clear and the results were so much better than I thought possible. I am here to say my business is now thriving and I can finally breathe. The stress is gone about worrying how am I going to pay all these MCA loans. David is a great communicator, his knowledge in this industry is second to none and with him on my side I never had to worry.

Knowledgeable, dedicated, and helpful
I hired David Kasell to represent me on a lemon law case with a difficult manufacturer, after I had completed the arbitration process and it was found in my favor. The process took months and was extremely complex, and David used his knowledge and experience to navigate it wonderfully and guide me to a resolution that was exactly what we asked for, and were legally entitled to. Throughout the process, David stayed on top of the manufacturer's Counsel and continually advocated for me, while keeping me up to date and providing guidance along the way. I would recommend David to anyone who needs this sort of help.

Saved me from paying on a bad car
I purchased a car from the dealership online. The car looked great in the pictures and the salesman said there was no issues with the car. When the car was delivered 14 days later and was able to look at it in person there was damage to the car / problems not identified by the car dealer to me. The estimated damage to repair was 15k. The dealership would not answer my calls and put me on hold until it hung up on me. Also, I did not receive title to the car so I couldn't register the car in my state. After 30 days of this going on I called Kasell law firm to get this taken care of. David took them to Federal court and was able to get me out of the car loan and have the car picked up by the dealership. If it wasn't for David Kasell I would have been stuck with the car and the repairs. He stayed on top of my case and provided updates. He is a very honest person and does what he says. I appreciate everything he did for me and highly recommend him if you are in a bad situation.

Kasell is the man for the job
Because I didn’t have any experience in purchasing a car, I felt I was totally taken advantage of. I purchased a car from a dealership I had been leasing from for years. Imagine my surprise when this dealership’s finance manager, with whom I had been dealing with for so long, intentionally overcharged me, and then told me I had signed the papers; as if there wasn’t anything I could do about it. I never needed an attorney for a problem like this, so I turned to the internet. In my search, I read quite a few reviews about this type of situation but, the reviews that stayed with me the most, were for David Kasell of Kasell Law Firm. Even though his address was in Long Island, and I resided in The Bronx, I was impressed. After explaining my plight, he gave me a number of things to do, which I did. He read everything I forwarded to him. He made me feel like he was deeply concern. It didn’t happen overnight, but David Kasell, kept assuring me that everything was going to be all right. Lo and behold, the dealership ended up paying me. If you or anyone you know are having problems with car dealerships, trust me. David Kasell is for you.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING
I had a terrible experience with a dealership in NY. They conducted horrible business. And, I hired David Kassel for some help. He not only gave me great advice and contacted the dealer on my behalf but he also got me in contact with consumer protection who was an amazing help in getting a settlement. Highly, highly recommend.

Dealership
I purchased a car from NY and I live in California. I never thought that dealership would trick me to avoid their sales tax. Paid Car in full, It had been more than 8 months and I never received my title n license plate. I called them so many times but never responded back. That’s when I contacted Kasell law firm. They have massive knowledge regarding auto industry laws. Very empathic and professional at the same time. With the help of them, I was able to get my work done in a week. If you are looking for a lawyer regarding any auto issues, please don’t hesitate to contact them. They are great and highly recommended.

My family and I are SO glad we found David Kasell. He was extremely knowledgeable , courteous, friendly and responsive to all our questions and concerns. The nightmare we had in our dispute with the manufacturer was handled wonderfully by David and we could not have asked for a better outcome. While I do not write reviews often, I felt compelled to write this one as I hope more people can have the experience I had hiring David Kasell. I can not thank or recommend him enough.

This is the man you want when dealing with auto fraud
Much like a lot of the users, I had just been had by a car dealership and felt ashamed, dumb and taken advantage of, I honestly never dealt with people so thieving and foul before and it turned my world upside down for a while BUT having Mr.Kasell assist and ultimately get money back for me that I thought I would never see again, all i could do was exhale and let go the months of stress and worry finally. I had a 3 year lease coming to an end and I was looking to get a new lease with similar payments, and looked around with a place with a car that I had wanted and finally came across a dealership that promised me on the phone they could get the car I was looking for with that price, I get there and it is a totally different story. I was being told that there is no way I could get the car lease for the payments I wanted due to pandemic, all while being friendly and making me feel at ease so ultimately I believed them and declined that offer and we discussed just buying the car out that was in my possession for the last 3 years, I kept mentioning my lease buyout option to the dealership and they told me they could not honor it due to the pandemic, they acted trusting, I was tired and just wanted to go so I had trusted them signed and went, I later discovered that what they did. They sold me the car I had for the past 3 years to me as the price of a used car as if i walked in and bought it off their own lot and added all these warranties that I did not need. I was fuming but also didn't no If I had a case or a shot to get money back. I found Mr.Kasell and hoped he would say I had a case and be able to help, he answered the phone and I told my situation in a nervous manner, and he listened to me the whole through and was reassuring. He said I had a case, offered very far prices and got to work, before we could even step foot in a courtroom Mr Kasell was able to get a settlement check for an amount that I truly didn't not think I would see again! He is a man who has truly mastered his craft and did not once make me feel like another number for work, he always answered his phone, kept me updated, asked me what I would like to do and felt like someone who wants to help you. If you ever question his ability, he'll show you that you went to the right person for the job! Thank you!

I highly recommend the Kasell Law Firm
I highly recommend the Kasell law firm. David Kasell handled our case when we realized after a recent car purchase that the dealership had taken advantage of us. David was more than excellent, he was personable and knowledgeable, and his considerable expertise won us a great settlement from a car dealership who had scammed us out of not a small amount of money. Have you ever walked into a car dealership to buy a car, thinking you were paying one price, but after getting home and reading closely the confusing and multiple pages of paperwork, you suddenly realize you paid a lot more than you had intended? (What happened here?) Beware. There are two kinds of car dealerships out there, the first uses their salesmanship to provide excellent service in a welcoming and transparent process which results in the customer walking away from the sale with their needs met and feeling very satisfied with the transaction. That’s called salesmanship. The other kind, which, unfortunately is the type of dealership where we purchased our vehicle, uses persuasion techniques to bond with you and get you to lower your defenses, while they con you into spending more in the transaction than you intend. All the while they tread the thin line between legal and illegal, hoping you won’t notice where they actually crossed it. They wear you down by keeping you in the dealership for 3 hours waiting to close, and then have you sign in 48 places, all to their psychological advantage. If what I’m describing to you sounds familiar, do not hesitate to call the Kasell law firm. He has seen it all before and knows what to do. Also, it’s obvious that David likes helping people obtain justice and making the world a better place. In situations like the one I mentioned above, the Kasell law firm will be your best friend. Thank you, David!

There are still good people in the world.
David Kasell is a kind compassionate Lawyer. He was able to help me get my money back from a group of dishonest car dealers, who sold me a fictitious extended warranty. He worked hard at proving my case. He made it possible for me to get reimbursed. I would definitely recommend David Kasell law firm 100 percent.

One of the best lawyers for any auto related troubles
He will go through every step of the way with you. His prices are very fair and he goes above and beyond to meet your needs. He reached a settlement for me and made sure I was happy with it. He offered to push further if I needed as well. David cares deeply about his clients and makes sure they are happy. He is a fighter with plenty years of experience. Highly recommended for anyone dealing with auto fraud or any other auto related issues.

Gets the Job DONE!
I just want to say that I am truly blessed to have found the Kasell Law Firm! Dave has been an amazing attorney to have on my side in an ongoing, stressful battle to get my money back from a crooked dealership in NY that had been unresponsive until I hired him. He is such a real and down to earth guy who really cares about his clients and is so passionate about helping fight for the many people who are affected by dealership fraud. Dave is very prompt, persistent, and highly responsive. This guy means business and is great at what he does! Thanks to Mr. Kasell, all of my worries and stress have been alleviated and I have been able to FINALLY enjoy my vehicle which I haven’t been able to since my purchase six months ago. I 10/10 highly recommend using the Kasell Law Firm if you’ve been wronged by a dealership and are seeking to get things squared away in a jiffy!

David is to good to be true!
To those who want to get straight to the point. David Kasell is the Lawyers lawyer. This man got my sons down payment back with ease. Now for those who like a good read and would love to find out how he did it. Sit back, relax with a cup of Joe and enjoy the ride. David Kasell is worth the time that it will take me to write about our experience. My son and I purchased a vehicle from a dealer who shall not be mentioned. We were woooed and wowed by the words of sales rep and the financier and the way they presented themselves. They made us feel at home. offered us lunch. Spoke to us about their family. We laughed together. We shared stories together. They made us feel at ease, so when it came down to the numbers. We trusted that they were correct. Going over what we thought was decent numbers. We were sold. The numbers went like this... $23,999 for the vehicle. With registration, taxes, warranty etc. The total was around 27,999 or something very close to that. We were asked how much are we putting down. My son said "$8,000." "Congratulations!" The financier told us. "You are approved for $35,000." My son and I looked at each other and said. "Great!" We figured that the down payment of $8000 would bring down the cost of the vehicle from $27,999 to around $20,000 or so (given that the numbers are not exact but very close). This is where things get SPICY... so the loan of $35,000 thousand was the actual finance charge with a APR of 4+% the total came out to $39,000... Again. Remember. Throughout all this time we were being woooed and wowed by the staff and all personnel. They made sure we were comfortable. Mind you. while talking to us. They were passing papers (the contract). "Just sign here." "Sign here." "Don't forget here." "What do you think about the Yankees?" "Sign this too." By this time it was getting late and we were so desponded that we just signed not really reading every thing. We thought they had our best interest at hand the way they made us feel so accepted and appreciated. We never saw this as a tactic to make us lose sight of reading everything. They next day when we got up and the excitement of my son buying his first car (with daddy cosigning of course) died down. We looked at the contract and felt something was off. When we dug a little deeper we wanted to throw up. We felt ashamed, embarrassed, used, stupid, and confused; like what the heck just happened. They got us. They really got us. Here's where it gets super SPICY... Now enters David Kasell. We looked him up on google search and there he was. Well not actually. Their were a lot of other lawyers to choose from but David's reviews were hands down the best, so my son and I made the call. Surprisingly he answered the phone. Let me say that again. David Kasell himself picked up the phone. His voice alone when he answers, tells you that he's a winner (you will understand what I mean when you call and hear for yourself) He asks you "how can I help you." David... I mean Mr. Kasell listens intently and then asks "so what would you like to do," and from there depending on your response; builds a plan around your suggestion. This is so important because it doesn't leave you out of the picture. This approach actually involves you making you feel powerful with a voice which has something to say about being taking advantage of. After a plan is drawn up. David go's to work and he always gets back to you personally. Also if you have something to add to the plan that was made. He executes it to your satisfaction and as all the reviews proves positive. You can trust that the outcome will be a favorable one. Just like my son and I were very happy with our results. The experience is one that my son and I were fortunate to have. David if your reading this I want to say THANK YOU!

Goes above and beyond!
I can to David in November over issues with a potential lemon law case. In the end I had to go through CT’s lemon law program because I leased the vehicle in that state. David couldn’t represent me but offered to give my guidance along the way. I must’ve called a dozen times and he was always so helpful! He even looked over all my evidence before I submitted it. I would hands down recommend him to anyone! He’s amazing!!
