Bob Silverman, Founding Partner of Kimmel & Silverman, has been selected as one of the top lawyers practicing in Bergen County, NJ by fellow attorneys and members of the judiciary. The list of Top Lawyers appears in the recent edition of 201 Magazine.
Named “a pioneer in New Jersey Lemon Law litigation” by the Newark Star Ledger, Bob founded Kimmel & Silverman 20 years ago, and the firm has grown to become the largest Lemon Law and automotive consumer advocacy firm in the Northeast.
Since its inception, the firm has provided cost-free help to more than 65,000 drivers. As a result of Bob’s success and experience, he was asked by the State to teach NJ arbitrators and mediators about the fundamentals of the New Jersey Lemon Law, and he recently wrote an article on the State Lemon Law for NJ Lawyer Magazine’s Consumer Protection Edition.
Bob was also instrumental in ensuring that Dodge, Chrysler, and Jeep consumers still maintained rights under State and Federal Laws following Chrysler’s restructuring by co-authoring an amendment in the Chrysler/Fiat sales agreement with Kimmel and Silverman associate Amy Bennecoff. He has appeared in countless consumer news stories on Lemon Law rights, including a recent appearance on ABC’s Nightline where he discussed the BMW high pressure fuel pump issue.
Together with his partner, Craig Thor Kimmel, Bob was honored by the American Bar Association during their 2002 conference in Philadelphia for providing quality legal access to consumers. Bob works tirelessly for his clients every day, successfully resolving hundreds of cases per month on his own.
