AMBLER, Pa., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- For the seventh year in a row, Robert M. Silverman and Craig Thor Kimmel, founding partners of the Ambler- and Pittsburgh-based lemon law and consumer advocacy firm of Kimmel & Silverman, have been named Pennsylvania Super Lawyers in a survey conducted by Law & Politics Magazine. Jacqueline Herritt, Managing Attorney for the firm and an 11-year lemon law veteran, has also been named to the list for a fourth year running. Associates Richard Scholer and Amy Bennecoff were named Rising Stars. Kimmel & Silverman is proud to have more consumer lawyers named to the list than any other firm in Pennsylvania.
The findings are published in the June 2010 edition of Philadelphia Magazine. More than 34,000 attorneys were asked to vote for the most effective counsel they have personally observed in action. Kimmel & Silverman were recognized among the top 5% of all attorneys statewide for building Pennsylvania's oldest and largest full-service lemon law firm, and assisting more than 55,000 distressed drivers across the Northeast with cost-free legal representation.
Kimmel & Silverman is the only lemon law firm in the nation to be honored by the American Bar Association. Their efforts have been featured on Good Morning America, Extra, The CBS Early Show, and hundreds of newspapers and magazines including Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine, Consumer Reports, Automotive News, Black Enterprise, and USA Today. The firm, which started in Blue Bell, PA in 1991, has grown to include five full-service offices across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Delaware with a team of 11 attorneys, three certified automotive experts and a support staff of over 40 employees. The firm's attorneys have successfully represented consumers against automotive manufacturers in national class action suits, and expanded their practice to include automotive dealer fraud claims and unfair trade practice litigation.
Kimmel & Silverman has worked with the Consumer Affairs Committee on House Bill 2284, which they hope will become the nation's first computer lemon law, and testified on bills to include additional protection for Pennsylvania consumers with motorcycles and recreational vehicles. When Chrysler was restructured and purchased by Fiat, attorneys Bob Silverman and Amy Bennecoff worked with Chrysler and Fiat counsels to revise the master sales agreement to include specific language which protects Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep drivers who suffer repetitive defects with their vehicles.
Kimmel & Silverman has five full-service offices in Ambler, PA; Pittsburgh, PA; Wilmington, DE; Dayville, CT; New York, NY; and Cherry Hill, NJ, and provides lemon law and breach of warranty representation to consumers throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, Michigan, Tennessee and Ohio.
