Seriously 1 of the BEST Lawyers
I retained Brett as my Lemon Lawyer on my Infiniti. Brett is Amazing and was ON IT. Took a matter of weeks and was in constant contact with me. Never once did he ever make me wait more than 30 minutes before he even got back to me. Always answered my calls and texted and was quick and professional. Every Lawyer should be on top of their cases like him. His feedback speaks for itself BUT is the God's Honest truth about this man. Very Professional, & we greatly appreciate him. WOW he deserves 10 STARS SERIOUSLY!!

Amazing Person
Brett has helped me through a buy back for one of my cars, and a cash settlement for my current car. His communication is wonderful, and I would recommend him to anyone who is having car issues. Thank you Brett for all of your assistance!

Airbag and seatbelt restraint light
Airbag and seatbelt restraint light My name is Cameron and I had a BMW I three rex I just purchased the vehicle back in June 2020. A week after I bought the vehicle my seat belt restraint and airbag light came on. I am mediately took it two the BMW dealership where I purchased a vehicle they told me it was fixed after a few days and gave me my vehicle back roughly 2 weeks later the light appeared again. I took the vehicle back to the dealership where this time they kept my vehicle for just over a week. They returned my car where I drove it for approximately another week and the light came back on for a third time. At this point I was becoming very frustrated with the service that I was receiving from BMW because I just purchased this vehicle and I have two young children that ride in this vehicle with me and the car is indicating that there is something wrong with the seatbelts and the airbag. I did some research on the Lemon Law through Google and that is where I found Brett Shainfeld, Esq. I called his number and spoke with them over the phone telling him a story about my car. I felt confident after our conversation that I had found the right person to help me with my lemon law case. All of the paperwork was done via email which was reassuring given all that has been happening with the pandemic in 2020. Brett explained to me the process of the Lemon law and immediately begin to work on my case. He was very forthright and always answered my calls or text keeping me informed at all times during the process. While Brett was working on my lemon law case I had to take my vehicle back to BMW for the same issue three more times. In October Brett informed me that BMW of America excepted my lemon law case and would move forward with the buyback program. All I had to do in this whole process was provide Brett with the documents he requested from me. This made The process very easy and best of all I had no out-of-pocket fees as originally promised in our first conversation. If anyone is having lemon law issues with their vehicle I would highly recommend you contacting Brett Shainfeld.

Great Lemon Law Attorney
I hired Brett Shainfeld as a Lemon Law Attorney and had a great experience working with him. Easy to talk to and quick to respond, he explained the process clearly from the first phone call and kept me updated on the progress. Everything was done through email and on the phone which made it fast, easy and very convenient. He got me a settlement in a couple of months! HIGHLY recommend him!

Brett took my case when it wasn't a clear cut case for a Lemon Law and with his persistence finally got the auto company to buy back my car when they initially offered a small of nuisance money to just get rid of me. Very satisfied with his availability with phone and text messages. He always responded to my calls with clear messages and direction. Very Happy with the results.

I contacted Brett on behalf of a very frustrated client, who had been given the runaround from a dealer and the manufacturer over an extended period of time. He was concise with his recommendations and was ultimately able to get the manufacturer to provide a settlement that was fair and consistent with what Brett believed would be the outcome of the process. I highly recommend using Brett’s services.

I could NOT have selected better representation! Mr. Shainfeld worked quickly and helped us reach a great settlement fairly quickly! I elected to pickup my final settlement check from his office, otherwise I would have never had to set foot in his work space. He works quickly and is incredibly trustworthy! Should the opportunity present itself again, I would work with Mr. Shainfeld in a heartbeat!

Porsche Lemon Victory!
Brett has been a great pleasure to work with. In what I thought was a loss he was able to get Porsche to buy my car back and in less than 2 months! He kept me up-to-date on the entire process. Thanks again Brett!

BMW Lemon
Brett is excellent at what he does, is very easy to work with and was always accessible. He was able to get the manufacturer to repurchase my car after another firm had worked on my case for 6 months and told me they were unwilling to repurchase it or even offer any monetary compensation. Thank you Brett for everything you did!

A satisfied client!!!

Great Experience!
After the torture we went through with our dealership on our Lemon Law car and the subsequent challenge of trying to find a responsive, knowledgeable attorney to represent our case, we were at our wit's end and highly skeptical when we found Brett Shainfeld. However, we found Brett to be clear, communicative, immediately responsive and confident. He adapted quickly to our preferred mode of communication (electronic or voicemail, rather than live discussions), and consistently kept us informed as to what was happening with our case, as well as what to expect next. And the best part is that he successfully negotiated our case with the manufacturer. He made the whole process simple, clear and painless. Hopefully, we will never need to Lemon Law another vehicle, but if we do, we will definitely contact Brett again!

Attorney for the people.
My email to Mr Shainfield. " I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for representing me in my case against the Kawasaki Corporation. Without your expertise and commitment I wouldn’t have recover anything for the inferior product I bought from the Kawasaki Corporation. I am convinced you have your clients’ best interest in mind when you reduced your fees and cost from your pre-litigation minimum of $2300.00 in order to maximize my recovery. It doesn’t get any better than this. If at anytime you need a reference for the excellent representation you gave me in this matter, please, don’t hesitate to call me or use my name." David.
