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.
Our firm is the oldest and largest in the Northeast, offering help throughout fifiteen states. In addition to a tremedously dedicated legal team, we have three certified ASE mechanic experts on our staff, handling inspections for all of our clients at no charge.
Our efforts have been featured in numerous television programs, including Good Morning America, Nightline, the CBS Early Show, and Extra. We have also been written about in Consumer Reports, USA Today, and Kiplingers Personal Finance Magazine. We are tremendously proud to be the only firm of our kind ever honored by the American Bar Association.

I've had many attorneys work with me at the firm over the last 20 plus years, but in all sincerity I can say that Bob Rapkin is among the few who have the intellect, skill, experience, desire and ability to go into court every day for our clients, and win cases as if everything depended on each one. He is a tireless litigator who cuts to the chase and makes the winning argument. I can think of no higher praise than to say that Bob is a litigator's lawyer, a guy who knows how to win and when to settle. Our clients agree, he's a very fine attorney.
