WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY EXPRESS WARRANTY UNDER NEW JERSEY WARRANTY
LAW?
A New Jersey express warranty is:
• any description of a New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product;
• that the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product meets that description; and
• which is made part of the basis of a New Jersey consumer’s and New Jersey seller or New Jersey buyer and manufacturer’s bargain; or
• any sample or model which is made part of the basis of a New Jersey consumer’s and New Jersey seller or New Jersey buyer and manufacturer’s bargain;
• creates a New Jersey express warranty that the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product shall meet the sample or model’s description.
For a New Jersey express warranty to be created, it is not necessary for the New Jersey seller to use formal words such as ‘warranty’ or ‘guarantee’ or that the New Jersey seller have a specific intention to make a New Jersey warranty. However, if a New Jersey seller merely makes a representation about the value of a New Jersey car, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product or a statement claiming to be merely the New Jersey seller’s opinion or recommendation about the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product, such representations or statements do not create a New Jersey express warranty.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF EXPRESS WARRANTY CLAIM UNDER NEW JERSEY
WARRANTY LAW?
A New Jersey breach of warranty requires a New Jersey car, a New Jersey truck, a New Jersey boat or product New Jersey buyer or a person with a right to enforce a New Jersey car, a New Jersey boat or product warranty (whether a New Jersey consumer or business) to prove that:
• The New Jersey consumer or other person was entitled to entered into a contract with a New Jersey seller to purchase the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product provided with a New Jersey warranty.
• The New Jersey consumer did what the New Jersey warranty required them to do to do.
• The New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant issuing the New Jersey warranty (usually, either a New Jersey seller or the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or product’s manufacturer) did not do what the New Jersey warranty required them to do, thereby breaching the New Jersey warranty;
• The New Jersey breach of warranty was material – not something trivial; and
• The New Jersey breach of warranty caused the New Jersey consumer to suffer a loss.
In a New Jersey breach of a New Jersey express warranty claim, the New Jersey consumer claims that the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product did not meet the New Jersey seller’s factual claims or promises. Any factual claims or promises that New Jersey seller makes to the New Jersey consumer about the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product offered for sale and that become part of the basis of the New Jersey plaintiffs or New Jersey defendants’ bargain create a New Jersey express warranty that the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product would meet the New Jersey seller’s factual claims or promises.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF WARRANTY UNDER NEW JERSEY WARRANTY LAW?
New Jersey breach of warranty claims involve New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products, parts or labor that were sold with a New Jersey warranty. Usually, the case is one where a New Jersey dealership makes repeated repairs to your New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products under the New Jersey warranty for the same problem but couldn’t fix it. One such law that may help you get relief from such a problem is the Magnuson-Moss Warranty-Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act (the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act). Under the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, to recover money damages, the following minimum requirements must be met:
• the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product must be a new or used “consumer product” distributed in commerce and normally used for personal, family, or household purposes.
• A written warranty or New Jersey service contract was provided with the product.
• You must be a “consumer'' -- a New Jersey consumer (other than for purposes of resale) of the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product or other consumer product, a person to whom the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product was transferred during the duration of an implied or written warranty (or New Jersey service contract) applicable to the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product, or any other person entitled by the terms of such New Jersey warranty (or New Jersey service contract) or under applicable State law to enforce against the warrantor (or New Jersey service contractor) the obligations of the New Jersey warranty (or New Jersey service contract).
• The issuer of the New Jersey warranty or New Jersey service contract failed to comply with the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act or failed to honor the terms of its warranty or New Jersey service contract.

The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act covers most consumer products sold or leased with a New Jersey warranty or New Jersey service contract and that is normally used for personal, family or household purposes, such as New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products, mobile homes, computers, appliances, agricultural products, heating and air conditioning systems, plumbing components, etc. Many services are excluded under the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act and often the question of whether a New Jersey warranty or New Jersey service contract is regulated by the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act is for the New Jersey courts to decide.

From New Jersey buyer’s standpoint the very purpose of the New Jersey warranty is to provide goods that conform to the contract and do so in an appropriate time. If a New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product, boat or other product undergoes repairs under a New Jersey warranty by its manufacturer or New Jersey seller for a defect and they cannot fix the defect in a reasonable period of time, the New Jersey consumer may lose the substantial benefit of the New Jersey consumer’s purchase and that New Jersey buyer may be entitled to seek damages against the offending New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant. For example, suppose you buy a new New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product sold with a manufacturer’s warranty, its engine light comes on and you take it to the manufacturer’s New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product dealership 3 times for that problem to be fixed but after 3 times, the problem is still present. You may be able to sue the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product’s manufacturer for money damages because they failed to fix the defect after a reasonable opportunity to do so. Brand new New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products should not have a check engine light come on 3 times after three attempts to fix the problem.

WHAT IS A “SUBSTANTIAL IMPAIRMENT” IN NEW JEREY BREACH OF WARRANTY CASES?
In New Jersey breach of warranty cases, the threshold test for whether a consumer can reject a car and seek money damages is whether the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle or product’s defect substantially impairs the value of the goods to the buyer. Under New Jersey law, whether a defect or nonconformity substantially impairs the use or value of the subject vehicle is not measured by a purely objective standard. Instead, when making such a determination, the factfinder must consider the viewpoint of the buyer and the buyer’s circumstances and decide whether a reasonable person in the buyer’s position would have believed that the defects or nonconformities substantially impaired the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle’s value. Accordingly, the New Jersey substantial impairment test is a combination of a subjective and objective test rather than merely an objective one. The mixed subjective/objective test allows the factfinder to consider a consumer’s reasonably shaken confidence in the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle as a factor in determining substantial impairment. The standard is subjective or personal in the sense that the facts must be examined in the viewpoint of the buyer and her circumstances but the standard is objective in the sense that the criteria is what a reasonable person in the buyer’s position would have believed. Under New Jersey warranty law, a New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle, boat or other product’s value is substantially impaired if its defects affect its value in some serious way, such as by reducing its resale value.

WHAT IS “SHAKEN CONFIDENCE” IN NEW JEREY BREACH OF WARRANTY CASES?
When deciding whether a New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle’s value is substantially impaired by its defects or whether a New Jersey boat or other product’s value is substantially impaired by its defects, an important factor is whether the defect “shakes the buyer’s confidence” in the goods. For example, a New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle’s value is substantially impaired where its nonconformity causes a loss of the buyer’s confidence in the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle. For example, the purchase of a new car is a major investment rationalized by the peace of mind that flows from its dependability and safety. Once the purchaser’s faith has been shaken, the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle loses not only its real value in their eyes, but it becomes an instrument whose integrity is substantially impaired and whose operation is fraught with apprehension.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY UNDER NEW JERSEY WARRANTY LAW?
Under the New Jersey implied warranty of merchantability, the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product must be reasonably fit for the general purpose for which it is manufactured and sold." Merchantability means "that the article sold should be of the general kind described and reasonably fit for the general purpose for which it should have been sold." For example, a New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product should be provide safe and reliable transportation on the roadway. When a manufacturer of a product, such as the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product, in the stream of trade and promotes its purchase by New Jersey consumers, a New Jersey implied warranty that it is reasonably suitable for use as a New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products accompanies it into the hands of the ultimate New Jersey buyer from the New Jersey dealer.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE UNDER NEW JERSEY WARRANTY LAW?
A New Jersey implied warranty that the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product is fit for a particular purpose arises when:
• New Jersey plaintiffs or New Jersey defendants enter into a contract for the New Jersey sale of the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product
• the New Jersey seller knows or should know that the New Jersey consumer requires the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product for a particular purpose; and
• the New Jersey consumer is relying on the New Jersey seller’s skill or judgment to pick or provide suitable goods,

For a New Jersey implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose to exist, the New Jersey consumer must actually rely on the New Jersey seller’s skill or judgment rather than the New Jersey consumer relying on their own skill or judgment in buying the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product. To determine this issue, the New Jersey judge or New Jersey jury deciding a case considers the following:
• all the facts and circumstances surrounding the New Jersey sale - both what was said and what was done by the New Jersey plaintiffs or New Jersey defendants, including, any reference to a particular trade or brand name).
• whether under all of the facts and circumstances existing at the time of the New Jersey sale, the New Jersey seller new or should have known that the New Jersey seller required the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product for a particular purpose and was relying on defendant’s skill, or judgment. The New Jersey consumer does not have to specifically state their purpose to the New Jersey seller; it is enough that the circumstances surrounding the New Jersey sale gave the New Jersey seller reason to know of the New Jersey consumer’s purpose and that the New Jersey consumer was relying upon the New Jersey seller’s skill or judgment.
• whether the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product was actually fit for that purpose.
• whether the New Jersey consumer gave the New Jersey seller notice of that fact to the New Jersey defendant within a reasonable time after they discovered or should have discovered that the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product was unfit for the particular purpose. When plaintiff should have discovered the defect depends upon all the facts and circumstances, including the nature of the defect, the time when the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product was put in use and whether the defect was discoverable by customary and reasonable inspections. The New Jersey consumer’s notice is sufficient if it informs the New Jersey seller that the New Jersey consumer claimed that the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product was defective.

WHAT MUST A NEW JERSEY CONSUMER DO BEFORE CLAIMING THAT A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF EXPRESS WARRANTY OCCURRED UNDER NEW JERSEY LAW?
If the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product does not meet that New Jersey express warranty, the New Jersey consumer must then give the New Jersey seller notice of that fact within a reasonable time after the New Jersey consumer discovered or should have discovered that the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product did not meet the New Jersey express warranty. When the New Jersey consumer should have discovered that the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product did not meet the New Jersey seller’s factual claims or promises depends on all the facts and circumstances, including the nature of the defect, the time when the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product was put in use and whether the nonconformity was discoverable by customary and reasonable inspections. The New Jersey consumer’s notice to a New Jersey seller of a defect is normally sufficient if it informs the New Jersey seller that the New Jersey consumer claimed that the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey recreational vehicle, New Jersey boat or other New Jersey product was defective. If the New Jersey consumer gives the New Jersey seller this notice in a reasonable time after the New Jersey consumer discovered or should have discovered the defect, then the New Jersey seller committed a New Jersey breach of express warranty and is responsible for paying the damages that the New Jersey breach of express warranty caused the New Jersey consumer to suffer.

WHAT OTHER LAWS PROTECT NEW JERSEY CONSUMERS WITH NEW JERSEY CAR WARRANTIES, NEW JERSEY TRUCK WARRANTIES, NEW JERSEY SUV WARRANTIES, NEW JERSEY RECREATIONAL VEHICLE WARRANTIES, NEW JERSEY BOAT WARRANTIES OR OTHER NEW JERSEY PRODUCT WARRANTIES?
The Magnuson-Moss Federal Warranty-Trade Improvement Act (Federal Warranty Act) authorizes consumers to suit for damages for a New Jersey breach of certain warranties, including express and implied warranties, arising under New Jersey law in connection with the New Jersey sale by a supplier of a New Jersey consumer product. The Federal Warranty Law offers consumers a basis in federal law for recovering damages. Under the Federal Warranty Law, a New Jersey consumer may bring an action against a "supplier, warrantor, or New Jersey service contractor" on any "written guarantee, New Jersey implied warranty or New Jersey service contract." Those successful under the Federal Warranty Law may recover their reasonable New Jersey attorney’s fees and New Jersey court costs.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY LEMON CAR, NEW JERSEY LEMON TRUCK, NEW JERSEY LEMON SUV, NEW JERSEY LEMON RECREATIONAL VEHICLE OR NEW JERSEY LEMON MOTORCYCLE UNDER NEW JERSEY LEMON LAWS?
A "lemon" automobile is one that exhibits a “substantial impairment” following one or more repair attempts made to it. For new vehicles, contrary to much misinformation spread amongst consumers, a New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle does not necessarily have to be out of service for 20 or more days or undergo a certain number of repairs to qualify as a lemon. New Jersey’s lawmakers decided that, since new automobiles were expensive to buy and lease the public should be protected from new lemon automobiles by having a right to sue the manufacturers of new lemon automobiles for a refund of the New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle’s purchase or lease price, less deductions for how many miles the defective New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle had when the defect was first reported to the manufacturer or its authorized dealership and for wear and tear. Also since many used car dealers committed fraud when selling used cars, New Jersey’s lawmakers decided that the public should be protected from used lemon automobiles by having a right to sue used car dealers who sold used lemon automobiles.

HOW DO I PROVE A NEW JERSEY LEMON LAW DEFECT CASE (THE BASICS)?
For a New Jersey lemon car buyer plaintiff or New Jersey lessee plaintiff to establish a New Jersey Lemon claim under the New Jersey Lemon Law, the New Jersey lemon car buyer plaintiff or New Jersey car lessee plaintiff must prove by a preponderance of the credible evidence each of the following five elements of the New Jersey Lemon Claim. The elements are:
• The New Jersey lemon car buyer plaintiff or New Jersey car lessee plaintiff purchased/leased a car manufactured by the defendant.
• The New Jersey Lemon car manufacturer had the New Jersey Lemon Law nonconformity or nonconformities that is/are, a defect or defects that substantially impaired the use, value or safety of the New Jersey Lemon car manufacturer.
• The New Jersey Lemon Law nonconformity occurred during the first 24,000 miles of use, or within two years after the date of original delivery to the New Jersey lemon car buyer plaintiff or New Jersey lemon car buyer lessee, whichever is earlier.
• The New Jersey lemon car buyer plaintiff or New Jersey lemon car buyer lessee reported the New Jersey Lemon Law nonconformity to the New Jersey Lemon car manufacturer or its dealer during the first 24,000 miles of use, or during the period of two years following the date of original delivery to the plaintiff, whichever is earlier.
• The New Jersey Lemon car manufacturer, through the New Jersey Lemon car manufacturer’s car dealers, did not repair the New Jersey Lemon Law nonconformity or non-conformities within a reasonable time.

WHAT IF I THINK MY FACTS DO NOT FIT NEW JERSEY WARRANTY LAW OR THE NEW JERSEY LEMON LAW?
If the dealer or manufacturer breached the warranties that came with your New Jersey car, New Jersey truck, New Jersey SUV, New Jersey recreational vehicle or New Jersey motorcycle, you may be able to recover money damages, attorney’s fees and court costs. You should always speak with New Jersey lemon lawyer before coming to any conclusions about your claim. Do not try to interpret the law by reading a website! However, even if the facts of your case do not fit the requirements of New Jersey warranty law, the New Jersey New Car Lemon Law or New Jersey Used Car Lemon Law, you may be entitled to sue the manufacturer or its selling dealer for a breach of your warranties under other state and federal laws.

WHY SHOULD NEW JERSEY PRO SE PLAINTIFFS AND NEW JERSEY PRO SE DEFENDANTS SEEK HELP FROM A NEW JERSEY LAWYER?
Handling your New Jersey case wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!! Do it right the first time by seeking legal advice from a competent New Jersey lawyer!
Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants make the mistake of not consulting a New Jersey lawyer before filing New Jersey Court papers only to later learn that the New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants made serious mistakes that could cause them to lose their New Jersey case. Let the Law Office of Paul DePetris help you with your New Jersey case.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?
New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees. Most New Jersey Court employees are not trained New Jersey attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you. Working at the New Jersey Court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY COURT?
The New Jersey Court usually provides certain types of New Jersey Court legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful. However, beware relying on New Jersey Court forms provided by the New Jersey Court – the New Jersey Court forms are often deceptively simple, while New Jersey cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be. There is simply no substitute for a competent New Jersey attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey cases. New Jersey Court forms don’t talk and New Jersey Court forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey case. Each New Jersey case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges. If you can afford a competent New Jersey attorney, it is best to have the New Jersey attorney prepare your New Jersey Court paperwork for you.

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY CASE MYSELF?
Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants can and do successfully handle New Jersey cases, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Court judgment. However, many other New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey cases or that result in the entry of a New Jersey Court money judgment against them. The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a competent attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey to handle part or all of the New Jersey case. The following are reasons to use New Jersey lemon lawyer to handle part or all of your New Jersey case:
• New Jersey Court fees often change
• New Jersey Court rules often change
• New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees
• New Jersey Court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in Court
• each New Jersey case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
• it is very common for New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Court complaints that result in the New Jersey Court complaints or answers to New Jersey Court complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Court or being dismissed by the New Jersey Court after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.
• it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the New Jersey case.
• a Court has the power to punish unprepared New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants, such as by throwing their New Jersey case out of Court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Court trial.
• New Jersey has many published cases, laws, regulations, Court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey Court trial.
• it is very common for Courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Court trial that the person themselves never prepared. Often New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants stumble into New Jersey Court with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a New Jersey Court judge tell the New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants that it is not going to even consider such items or documents.
• without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Court. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Court trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to Court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published cases.
• you cannot show up at the New Jersey Court expecting the judge hearing your New Jersey case to explain Court rules, evidence rules, Court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your New Jersey case. The judge hearing your New Jersey case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

It is important to remember that even if you have New Jersey lemon lawyer, you could lose your New Jersey case. Hiring New Jersey lemon lawyer to handle part or all of your New Jersey case does not guarantee your success. However, it may provide what is needed to win your New Jersey case or to avoid certain mistakes.
