AMBLER, Pa., Oct. 8, 2010 -- Kimmel & Silverman, the oldest and largest automobile lemon law firm in the Northeast, is getting even larger. The Lemon Law Firm has announced its expansion into Wyoming, Tennessee, Michigan and Washington D.C.
Craig Kimmel and Robert Silverman started their Lemon Law Firm to fight for the rights of consumers dealing with the automobile industry. Mr. Kimmel has been credited with rewriting the Pennsylvania Lemon Law in 2002 to include leased vehicles and tighter title branding for used cars, as well as writing the first Computer Lemon Law bill which has served as a model in several states. Mr. Silverman is a well-respected consumer rights attorney who is credited with teaching arbitrators and mediators the fundamentals of the New Jersey Lemon Law. Both have been featured in the media across the country as experts in warranty litigation in publications such as Kiplinger's, Consumer Reports, and Black Enterprise and on programs such as ABC's Good Morning America, Extra, and CBS's The Early Show. Their dedicated staff members have decades of experience dealing with auto lemon law (http://www.lemonlaw.com/auto-lemon-law.html)
warranty claims, and are pleased to be able to offer their support now to consumers in Wyoming, Tennessee, Michigan and Washington D.C.
State Car Lemon Laws (http://www.lemonlaw.com/rights.html)
typically apply to new cars, vans or trucks sold, leased or registered in that state, that suffer a defect or condition that cannot be repaired after a specified number of attempts by an authorized manufacturer's dealership. This defect must substantially impair the vehicle's use, value or safety, and must first occur early in the life of the vehicle. Some State Lemon Laws also apply to vehicles that are in the shop for repair for a specified number of calendar days during the first year OR TWO regardless of the defect.
Lemon Laws vary by state and can be interpreted in many ways. If your new car has been back to the shop numerous times for the same complaint, or in the shop for extended periods of time, you may have a lemon. Contact a Lemon Law Firm that practices in your area to get more information on getting satisfaction from the dealer.
