“One of my favorite cases involved an SUV owner having significant paint issues. Dealer would never give him repair orders, and the manufacturer never made a serious offer. So after two years of litigation we won a jury trial when other firms turned this client down because he didn’t have repair orders and the other typical documentation. Of course, most of our cases do not take two years to resolve, but we were prepared to go the distance, got a great result, and I became friends with the client. We still stay in touch even though several years have passed.”

I contacted Mr. Abeel’s firm THREE YEARS after owning my 2008 Chrysler Town & Country. Mr. Abeel was assigned the case. I can’t say enough good things about him. He was competent, knowledgeable, responsive and held his ground against a very stubborn and unreasonable defendant, Chrysler. There were MANY issues with my car and I had tried to work with Chrysler to no avail. I contacted Mr. Abeel and made it just in the Lemon Law Time frame. Many lawyers would have tried to get me to settle much earlier in the case, but Tim really listened to what I had to say, agreed with me and was willing to stand his/my ground even if it meant going to trial. He won a full repurchase for me, which was no easy task given the car was five years old and almost 60K miles by the Time we settled. Mr. Abeel would be an EXTREME asset to have on your side if you are involved in a Lemon Law case! I would HIGHLY recommend him!
Tim Abeel & Associates is one of the finest, reliable, and client friendly and client first firms I have ever dealt with in over 50 years. I truthfully can say, I will refer this firm to anyone who needs help with vehicle or anything else. Friendly, easy to talk to, understanding, if you have a question it will be answered without any nonsense, if you leave a message, you can be sure you will be contacted with an answer. It has been a pleasure dealing with Tim & Associates.
Tim and his team quickly responded to my request for representation after months (and months) of inaction by another attorney. Tim and his group walked me through every step of the process and were able to take my case to a satisfactory resolution. THANK YOU! Hire Tim, you won’t regret it!
Two words that are hard to find about an attorney. Honest and Caring. Tim Abeel has both words in his definition for me. He proved that A caring, honest attorney could not only get us a deserving settlement but he was respectful throughout the whole process. He understood our concerns and went to bat with a great staff and an arsenal of information. We highly recommend Tim Abeel to anyone in need of a GREAT Lemon Law attorney.
I am totally in awe with the great experience and service! Sally and Tim and Gracie communicated with email and promptly.. I had a truck with 107,000 plus miles and other firms would not touch my case. Tim and staff gladly took my case without any hitch and managed to get me a cash settlement without even filing a complaint in court or arbitration in less than 60 days!
My brand new 2015 Nissan Rogue was having issues with my heat, as in there was none until the car was running for over 30 minutes since the air conditioner would not turn off. After taking it to two dealers who both told me that there is nothing wrong with car and was tired of freezing and called Tim Abeel.
Tim took the case immediately and had his mechanic come on site to my work to inspect the car. They found out that my air conditioner would not turn off and this was the cause of me freezing in the winter. After Tim negotiated with Nissan I was able to get the maximum buy back allowed.
Again, I strongly recommend you reach out to Tim Abeel if you even think you have a Lemon Law case. Best part of this situation was Nissan even paid Tim’s costs.
Tim and Tracey were awesome to work with. My wife & I are extremely happy with the outcome of our Lemon Law suit! They made everything easy and answered our question in a Timely manner.
