Erika Kavicky – Kaufman & Kavicky

Erika Kavicky

Founding Partner

Ms. Kavicky has been litigating for over 20 years and she is the firm’s lead trial lawyer. Ms. Kavicky has experience trying more than 30 bench and jury trials to completion. She’s also conducted hundreds of administrative hearings, and has successfully argued in front of the San Diego division of the California Court of Appeals. Ms. Kavicky has tried cases against most major car manufacturers such as BMW, Tesla, and Toyota, among others. Ms. Kavicky obtained the maximum civil penalty for her client in a case vs. BMW and in a more recent case against Tesla, her jury awarded an amount that was nearly Tesla’s prior best settlement offer. While Ms. Kavicky is certainly one of California’s top lemon law trial attorneys, that reputation, her extensive knowledge of the law and her top negotiation skills, mean that the majority of her matters settle without the need for a trial, and often for a full legal repurchase or more. 

In Ms. Kavicky’s free time she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and riding her Peloton bike.
