About Me

Trial attorney Allan M. Siegel has been practicing law for 20 years.   He has tried and settled hundreds of cases in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. He has distinguished himself in the legal community by attaining extraordinary results, on what may appear on their face to be ordinary cases. His dedication and perseverance, combined with his courtroom skills, and trial results have earned him respect among his peers.  He has been named one of Washington's  "Top Lawyers" by Washingtonian Magazine every time the magazine has done the survery since 2004.   Washingtonian compiles this list by contacting local attorneys in the personal injury field and asking them who they would choose to represent them if they needed legal assistance.  He has also been included in the 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 publications of Washington, D.C. Super Lawyers.  Only 5% of attorneys in the Washington, DC area are named to this elite list.   The attorneys who received this honor are featured in The Washington Post Magazine. Mr. Siegel is also "AV" rated by the presitgious Martindale Hubble legal directory, which is the high rating a lawyer can achieve.   Mr. SIegel and the law firm were recently featured in a magazine titled "Top Lawyers of Washington DC and Baltimore" which featured AV lawyers and was distributed in the Washington Post in April 2014.  Mr. Siegel and his partners were also featured on the front cover of that magazine in 2012.

He also co-chaired the membership committee and served two years as the co-chairman of the education committee, planning, organizing, and moderating educational programs presented to other lawyers throughout the D.C. Metropolitan Area.  Mr. Siegel is an active member of The American Association for Justice, a national organization whose primary purpose is to promote and protect the civil justice system in America.  He is a member of the Leader's Forum of that organization.  He currently serves as the District of Columbia delegate to The American Association for Justice.
