RoseWaldorf represents multi-national companies, including manufacturers, distributors, and other businesses, with a special focus on representing the automotive industry in product warranty and lemon law matters.


RoseWaldorf is national in scope. RoseWaldorf’s lawyers are all multi-state licensed to best serve our clients efficiently in high-volume litigation efforts. RoseWaldorf regularly represents clients in 20 states:  

California, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, and Alabama

Individual attorneys are also licensed in additional states and the RW team has been quick to respond to client needs in additional jurisdictions.

RoseWaldorf assists clients in all areas of product warranty defense, including: review and counsel on proposed legislation, lobbying, factual investigation and response to consumer demands submitted under State Deceptive Trade Practices Acts, pre-litigation claims handling and settlement, representation in state-run lemon law binding arbitrations and administrative hearings, and defense of product warranty and lemon law litigation.

RoseWaldorf is responsive to our clients’ goals. RoseWaldorf is uniquely capable of speedy case review and strategy recommendations with a deep understanding of the business costs in a fee-shifting environment. RoseWaldorf is assertive through trial and appeal as needed, as well as in seeking dismissal through dispositive motion practice or negotiating favorable resolutions where appropriate. RW has obtained numerous dismissal and defense awards at trial, in arbitration proceedings, and in administrative hearings. RW has also achieved a large measure of success securing dismissals short of trial through the use of demurrers or motions to dismiss, or later motions for summary judgment or summary adjudication. RW has also handled appeals in multiple jurisdictions, and is responsible for several seminal decisions interpreting warranty and lemon laws, including DiCintio v. DaimlerChrysler Corp., 97 N.Y.2d 463, 768 N.E.2d 1121, 742 N.Y.S.2d 182 (2002) (Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act does not apply to leased vehicles) and DaimlerChrysler Corp. v. Victoria, 153 N.H. 664, 917 A.2d 209 (2006) (Negative equity must be accounted for when calculating vehicle’s purchase price). The firm has handled appeals in the highest courts of six states, as well as numerous intermediate appellate courts in a number of jurisdictions.

The firm’s large geographic reach when combined with its focused experience allows it to offer efficient and effective representation.
