NJ Lemon Law Attorney Bob Silverman Honored in Statewide Poll
Founding Partner was honored Super Lawyer for building New Jersey's largest Lemon Law firm and for providing free legal help to more than 45,000 drivers.
Cherry Hill, N.J. (March 21, 2008) – New Jersey Lemon Law Attorney Robert M. Silverman, founding partner of the Lemon Law firm of Kimmel & Silverman (a.k.a. 1-800-LEMON-LAW) has been named a 2008 New Jersey Super Lawyer in a recent study by Law & Politics Magazine.
This is the fourth year Silverman has received this distinction, and he is the only Lemon Law lawyer in New Jersey to receive this honor. The findings are being published in the April 2008 issue of New Jersey Monthly.
Throughout the State, attorneys were asked to vote for the most effective attorneys they have personally observed in action, with the top vote getters being named Super Lawyers. Only five percent of all attorneys statewide received this honor.
Silverman was recognized for building the state's first full-service Lemon Law firm and assisting more than 45,000 distressed with cost-free legal representation, recovering over $145 million for their clients. Kimmel & Silverman attorneys argue in courts in all counties throughout Southern, Central, and Northern New Jersey.
Kimmel & Silverman made headlines when they successfully appealed a decision Honda received by a Camden County Superior Court, which limited warranty rights for New Jersey lessees. This decision continues to ensure that New Jersey lessees have the same Lemon Law and breach of warranty rights as those who purchase their cars. In addition, Silverman was asked by the State to teach arbitrators and mediators the fundamentals of the New Jersey Lemon Law in a series of workshops, and he was called a "pioneer in Lemon Law" by the Newark Star Ledger.
In the last seventeen years, the firm has grown to include five full-service offices across New Jersey, Eastern and Western Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Delaware with a team of 18 attorneys, four certified automotive experts, and a support staff of over 40 employees.
The firm's attorneys have also successfully represented consumers against several automotive manufacturers in class action suits and have expanded their practice to include automotive dealer fraud claims and unfair trade practice litigation. Most recently, the firm has expanded to offer services throughout Ohio, Connecticut, and New Hampshire.
This is the most recent honor for Kimmel & Silverman, whose Lemon Law efforts have been featured in Consumer Reports, Kiplingers, USA Today, and hundreds of newspapers stories throughout the Northeast. Their firm is also the only Lemon Law firm in the nation to be honored by the American Bar Association (Meritorious Recognition, Louis M. Brown Legal Access Award).
