Two-Time Client! Recommend Her To All!
I have hired Jacqueline for two cases both involving pre-owned cars, a BMW and a Lexus. While neither car qualified for Lemon Law, they both fell under the breach of warranty law. The representation was completely free to me and it was very easy to sign up. In both cases, Jacqueline and her paralegals kept me in constant contact regarding the status of my case, and both were resolved for thousands of dollars, each within months of signing up. Plus, I got to keep my cars. She's fair, honest and in both situations, exceeded my expectations tenfold. I always recommend her to anyone I know who is dealing with a car problem and I would hire her again in a minute.

Lexus Buyback!
My Lexus RX330 had both sunroof and air conditioner problems. The matter was so bad that I literally had to srop at a shopping mall on the way to a wedding to purchase new clothing for the event. The issue though was my mileage. I was over 50,000 miles before I elected to file a lemon law claim. Within 60 days or sending in my documents, Jacqui called me to tell me Lexus was buying my car back--everything I spent on it--over $45,000! I was beyond thrilled and very happy with the representation.

Squeezing lemons were never more rewarding..
I love a great lemon or two…especially on my favorite fish filets. Jacqueline was a terrific chef and prepared my dish like the classic professional that she is. She treated me to a superb and rewarding experience. Manufacturers can run, but they sure can’ t hide. Accountability is Attorney Herritt’s best dish and you will reap the reward of her skilled legal Prowess. Thank you Jacky !

Patricia vs FCA
I would like to thank Ms. Herritt and the law firm of Kimmel and Silverman for accepting my case against FCA( Chrysler) in helping me resolve my situation with my vehicle. From the beginning to the end of my case Ms. Herritt and her associates assured me that everything will be ok and remained in contact with me throughout the process of my lemon law. I would recommend this firm to anyone who continue to have long term problems problems with a vehicle and need a resolution.

Nissan Titan
Thank you for the assistance with my lemon law issue. I was very disappointed with Nissan that they didn’t take it upon themselves to address the issues but very impressed by the service your company was able to complete. On my first contact with your firm, was impressive but I was a little discouraged that it was going to take 90 days. I was happy when we heard back in less than 2 weeks, that it was settled and only the procedural portion left. Thank goodness.

Dodge Viper Recall
I had a friend recommend this firm. I had several issues with my 2015 Dodge Viper. The vehicle had 2 engine failures and was in the shop for almost 5 months at a time, during the summer months. This was extremely frusterating to handle and knew I needed legal advise regarding this matter. This law firm settled my case and got me all my money back. I would highly recommend them to all family and friends. Unbelievable service and I can't say enough about them.

Successful and professional
I had no expectations with my case at first but as time passed I realized that I was dealing with very experienced lawyers. They fought for me and I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. I would have no problem recommending Ms.Herritt to anyone. Hopefully I don't need to go through anything like this again but I would with out a doubt use her expertise in the future. Thank you so much.

Best decision you'll make
After calling 800lemonlaw I was assigned to Jacqueline Herritt. She was incredibly knowledgeable and very accurate regarding expectations. She even went above and beyond in scheduling the sale of my vehicle, as i had purchased it at a dealer located relatively far away. The entire process was pain free and best of all we won our case! Hopefully I will not encounter another lemon concerning my vehicles, but if I do I hope to work with Jacqueline again.

Excellent Lemon Law Lawyer!!
Jacqueline and her staff helped me settle my lemon law case on a vehicle I was having nothing but problems with. Her assistant Andria was a pleasure to work with, and their expertise in these types of cases is fantastic. We were able to settle out of court for what I felt was an acceptable amount. If I ever have another issue like this, Jacqueline’s firm will be my first call. You would hope vehicle manufacturers would stand behind their products but when they don’t its reassuring to know you can get help. Thanks Jacqueline, to you and your staff. Tim

Gratefulness and appreciation for service
Thank you, Jacqueline, for your effort and commitment to helping those who lack the knowledge to defend themselves! You were always displayed wonderful patience and took time to explained aspects of the case that I did not understand or during one of my bouts of frustration! I will refer my family and friends to her for her guidance with these types of life challenges! Again, thank you and my wife and I appreciate you for your effort!

great firm!!
This Firm is great! I have not had much experience with lawyers let alone a lemon law. They stepped up and took control so I had very minimal to do other than explain my situation. Without their help I would have never received any compensation for the issues with my vehicle. They explained the process and went to work; all I had to do was agree to a final settlement and sign papers; thats it. I would use them again and again. I would also recommend that if anyone is concerned about their vehicle CALL THEM!!

When Car Manufacturers Ignore You...CALL Jacqueline!!
I live in New Jersey. I bought a brand new vehicle in January of 2015...By the end of March of 2015 the vehicle had been in the shop 3 times + well over 20 days for manufacturer defects (I'll spare the boring details). After countless useless phone calls to the dealership and corporate office of the manufacturer, I proceeded with Lemon Law. First, let me say that as an average Joe consumer up against a huge automobile corporation, you feel ignored, bullied, and spoken to as if you were a child...BUT...after speaking to Jacqueline and finding out she is representing you...you feel 10 feet tall and full on confidence! NOW all of a sudden the automobile corporation is paying attention to you! NOW all of a sudden they sympathize! NOW all of a sudden you are an important customer! My case was settled to my extreme satisfaction and I couldn't be happier! Thank you so much Jacqueline!

Thank you for your hard work
What a wonderful company Kimmel & Silverman is (SPECIFICALLY JACQUELINE HERRITT)!!! I reached out to Kimmel & Silverman when I got to the point where my new car was just not safe to drive and I had know where else to turn. From the first phone call to the last call Kimmel & Silverman provided me with the assistance I needed with my lemon law. My lawyer was so great she got my car bought back, all of my payments & interest refunded and my loan paid off. It seems too good to be true, but it is not. Because of their hard work, I was able to start fresh and go buy a safe car that is made properly. If you are reading this review, stop what you are doing and call Kimmel & Silverman. They are pros in the industry and will take away the stress and hassle for you to solve your problem. Thank you Kimmel & Silverman for all of your hard work to solve my Lemon Law case. Maria

Jacqueline herritt is to litigation as Elvis is to Music!
After having my truck in the shop for 44 days I decided it was time to refer my situation to Kimmel and Silverman. Ms. Herritt litigated my case and as a result I was fully compensated for my vehicle which the manufacturer bought back. I am certain I would have been given the flimflam treatment had I not worked with Jacqueline and the Kimmel and Silverman law firm. If you, as a consumer have a legitimate issue with your vehicle contact these people. It's like having the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday on your side! Oh, and did I mention that the litigation cost me nothing!!!!!
