From The Legal Intelligencer:

Craig T. Kimmel and Robert M. Silverman, founders of one of the largest lemon law practices in the northeastern United States, continue to try to stave off disciplinary action in Pennsylvania and New York following their Sept. 2 suspension in Maryland.

The pair, founding partners of 12-lawyer Kimmel & Silverman, was suspended indefinitely by the Maryland Court of Appeals for failing to adequately supervise a new satellite office they started in Maryland as well as failing to properly communicate with a client of the firm after the sole lawyer in that office abruptly resigned.


Apparently Kimmel and Silverman hired a single individual to run a Maryland office. That lawyer, Robin Katz, could not keep up with the workload, but kept this fact from her supervisors, even forging documents. One day, she just quit.

She failed to enter deadlines in 47 cases being handled by the law firm Piper Rudnick, now DLA Piper. That led to dismissals with prejudice in all 47 cases.

The firm, founded in 1991, prosecutes motor vehicle warranty and lemon law civil claims.
