Significant Cases: 

Ed v. Manufacturer- Oil consumption defect, new sedan. Resulted in a settlement for a Lemon Law repurchase (full refund of 2 years worth of payments, down payment, taxes, interest) + an additional cash recovery for client under the Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Act and attorney fees.

Tom v. Manufacturer- Almost two (2) years in duration - Defense award at informal dispute resolution arbitration hearing for a 2009 new sedan with surging, lurching problems with the transmission. Plaintiff filed suit and was awarded a full Lemon Law refund and attorney fees at Court arbitration in Franklin County Pennsylvania. The Court denied Defendant's motions for summary judgment, denied their motion for a second vehicle inspection, denied their motion for partial summary judgment as to treble damages and the Court denied sanctions against Plaintiff.  One (1) year after arbitration, just prior to jury trial, the case was settled for a repurchase (full refund) + attorney fees.

Brotz v. KIA Motors - Jury Award for a Repurchase of Plaintiff's KIA Sedona.  After only being awarded a breach of warranty award for $4,000.00 by an arbitration panel, Plaintiff was awarded a statutory repurchase (full refund of all payments and costs) by a unanimous jury verdict pursuant to the New Jersey Lemon Law.
