More often than not, lemon law cases are won or lost by the information and consulting provided by the auto expert to the attorney handling the case.
The Law Offices of William R. McGee, recognizing the importance of an auto expert to research and “dig up” all the technical information, internal manufacturers documents, and the ongoing expert advice/informational exchange pre-trial/at trial (in the event a case goes to court) on each lemon law case, has every case reviewed by Randy Sottile before choosing to take the case. This allows the attorney at the firm to view the case from the legal perspective, as well as from the auto expert’s mechanical perspective. More often than not, cases are won by the attorney proving to the automobile manufacturer that the attorney firm knows as much – or more – about the issue(s) with the vehicle than manufacturers do.
Here is a fact that consumers should know before choosing a lemon law attorney: Almost without exception, all other lemon law attorney firms do not have an on-staff auto expert. Other firms typically do not even involve an auto expert to review the case until it is deep into litigation – and then only “designates” the expert. Why? It’s all about money. This is a “cost” to the case – meaning – the attorney has to “front” the money out of his/her own pocket. Auto experts can cost as much as $300-$500 per hour. They simply don’t want to spend their money on a case they have no guarantee of winning.
Most lemon law cases are settled by The Law Offices of William R. McGee in the very early stages – typically in the first few months. As soon as your attorney discusses the repair history on the vehicle, accompanied by the research results provided by the on-staff auto expert, Randy Sottile, and the case is presented to the automobile manufacturer, the case often settles very quickly.
Randy Sottile has access (portals) into each manufacturer’s factory technical information systems. This is no small feat. This is where the problems/defects that are under engineering review are found, and many vitally important technical documents far beyond a simple TSB (Technical Service Bulletin).
Automobile manufacturers will not freely give out information that will hurt their position. In Nevada, you can only get back what you ask for. However, most attorneys have limited – or no idea – of what to ask for from the manufacturer in the form of technical documents. They blindly ask for “all documents relating to”, which gets them “vague and ambiguous” objections back. When I review and research a case, I tell the attorney exactly the documents for the manufacturer to produce. If they don’t – they are in trouble, as I already have them! All of the automobile manufacturers know this – and they know who I am.
