Quill & Arrow, LLP is a plaintiff’s firm in California specializing in Lemon Law and personal injury litigation. We are aggressive advocates for those who have been injured, or have otherwise sustained significant losses through no fault of their own. Through our dynamic, results-oriented litigation approach, we find that we are able to maximize the compensation available to our clients.
When Attorneys Kevin Jacobson and Jonathan Shirian founded the firm, they did so with the goal of offering legal representation that is “different” from what is normally provided by larger firms. We are not focused on quick turnarounds. Our approach to be selective on our matters so that we are able to invest significant time and attention into each case, thus helping clients secure the best possible recovery.
Representation in Lemon Law and Personal Injury Disputes
Here at Quill & Arrow, we operate a broad lemon law and personal injury practice, routinely representing clients in a variety of California plaintiff’s-side litigation, including the following matters:
In the state of California, Lemon Law applies to new or used vehicles either purchased or leased where the buyer repeatedly goes to the dealer for the same issue. If a manufacturer cannot repair a consumer good after a reasonable number of repair attempts, then it must either replace or refund the consumer’s money for the defective product.
A vehicle is considered a lemon when the dealership has been given numerous opportunities to repair the problem within the warranty period and have failed to fix your issues. There is no exact requirement for how many visits. While the statute does not specify how many repair attempts is required, the courts have ruled that the minimum number of attempts is only two. If your vehicle has been in the shop an unreasonable number of times for warranty issues, you may have a lemon on your hands. In California, manufacturers must replace or repurchase vehicles when they cannot repair them after a reasonable number of repair attempts.
If you find a lemon on your hands, our attorneys fight to hold the manufacturer accountable to their obligation under the California Lemon Law. A manufacturer must either replace your defective vehicle with a new one or repurchase the vehicle. This includes your down payment, monthly payments, and any finance changes, which include sales tax, prorated registration, and some service contracts.
Additionally, if the manufacturer willfully violated the lemon law, our California Lemon Law attorneys often recover civil penalties- additional damages above and beyond what you paid for your vehicle. The California Lemon Law is a consumer protection act. When the manufacturer fails to follow the law, the statute provides allows for recovery up to 2-times the purchase price of the vehicle.
When we founded Quill & Arrow, we did so having developed keen insight into what is fundamental for successful litigation: 1) quality legal work, and 2) relentless advocacy. Our attorneys have the requisite training and experience necessary to provide truly sophisticated representation in complex disputes. We also pursue such claims relentlessly — in fact, in Lemon Law disputes, we do not waste time engaging in the pre-litigation processes, and instead immediately file a lawsuit against the manufacturer/dealership to get the ball rolling. They have a proven track record of victories and settlements. The Lemon Law Attorneys at Quill & Arrow Law have litigated against virtually every auto manufacturer all throughout California.
There is significant value to relentless advocacy. Not only does it send a message to the defendant that you are confident in your legal arguments, but it also ensures that you are bargaining from a position of power, ultimately leading to larger settlements.
We understand that most prospective claimants — in Lemon Law and personal injury disputes — have minimal interest in getting embroiled in extensive litigation. In fact, we often find that prospective claimants avoid pursuing a legal resolution due to their concerns that litigation will be deeply unpleasant, uncertain, expensive, and time-consuming.
This is not necessarily true, however. Cost is hardly an issue for plaintiffs, as we provide our services on contingency. As such, our clients pay nothing upfront and avoid the risks normally associated with litigation.
Although we do sue and get involved in litigation, it’s our intention to make the process as pleasant and efficient as possible. Litigation does not have to be a burden. Responsive and accessible representation is fundamental to relieving that “burden.” We give our clients our personal cell phone numbers so that they can call or text us whenever they have any questions or concerns about their case.
When it comes to the litigation process itself, we strive to personalize the case to the degree possible — we do a thorough intake and engage closely with the client throughout the litigation process so as to better understand the unique circumstances applicable to their claims. This high level of engagement enables us to present a stronger case on their behalf.
As you explore your law firm options, you may find that some attorneys are intimidated by the prospect of litigation — they may only be willing to take on your case if there is a clear path to a simple, negotiated settlement.
Here at Quill & Arrow, we’re built differently. Over the years, our team of litigators has successfully represented clients in thousands of cases. We are comfortable both in-and-out of the courtroom, and this is reflected by our consistent track record of success. It takes guts to stand up against multinational corporations. We know how to fight against the big automakers and insurance companies to enforce your legal rights.
Our team was forged in the fire of courtroom litigation. We know what to expect and have formed valuable professional relationships with other litigators that can be helpful for resolving matters amicably, but have the skillset necessary to take a case all the way through to trial when necessary.
As a personal injury or Lemon Law plaintiff, you’re likely to hear the word “no” a significant amount of the time — from defendants, insurers, manufacturers, and car dealerships, among others. These parties may attempt to paint your claim as unlikely or even impossible, in the hopes of discouraging you from pursuing further litigation. Similarly, many lawyers are unwilling to consider disputes that are less straightforward or they may simply lack the toolset necessary to litigate claims involving complex and uncertain issues.
Here at Quill & Arrow, we are committed to avoiding premature assumptions about the underlying case. We believe that by refusing to make assumptions, we are able to evaluate the true value of a personal injury or Lemon Law claim free from the negative biases of interested parties.
Control of the case narrative is important. By maintaining control over the narrative, we empower you to take action as necessary to secure what’s rightfully yours.
If you’d like to learn more about how the attorneys here at Quill & Arrow can help you secure compensation for your personal injury or Lemon Law dispute, we encourage you to contact our team to schedule a free initial consultation.
It’s worth noting that every claim has a deadline. Failure to litigate the aforementioned claims before the deadline passes could lead to an automatic dismissal. Early consultation with an attorney is therefore critical for ensuring timely litigation.
