Many consumers do not realize that under State Lemon Laws and Federal Warranty Laws, consumers can receive completely free legal represention thanks to fee-shifting provisions. These provisions state that if the consumer prevails, the manufacturer must pay all attorneys fees and legal costs in addition to recovery. At our firm, Kimmel and Silverman, clients pay nothing out of their pocket win or lose. Potential remedies could include a complete repurchase, a brand new vehicle, or significant monetary compensation and continued ownwership of your vehicle.
