This was my first time working with Mr. Siegel on an employment-related manner. I found him to be very down to earth, confident, and excellent with communication and follow through. I appreciated his willingness to make sure I was comfortable with everything. And, he actually exceeded his time on my consultation but didn't charge me extra for it. He drafted a perfect letter on my behalf. I am awaiting the results, but regardless of the results, my exchange with him (and the rest of the firm) was positive. I highly recommend him and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again.
I never met Mr. Siegel in person, but I spoke with him several times on the phone. He was always friendly, and kept me up to date on how my case was progressing. I always knew what was next for us and what may occur afterwards. Mr. Siegel never left me in the dark.
I had run into numerous issues with my employer. At the start of 2007, my supervisor informed me that my focus for 2007 was to 'smother' my direct reports with love- at the sacrifice of all other job responsibilities. I did this, and my actions were rewarded with a written performance warning in September 2007.
At the same time, the head of my company's H.R. department was slandering me to the executive management team.
Finally, I had had enough of various sexual harrasment issues going on between my supervisor and I.
I performed a Google search and found Marc Siegel. I knew nothing about him, other than his bio. Contacted a friend of mine in Chicago that is an attorney. He researched Mr. Siegel and found nothing but positives about him.
I met with Mr. Siegel to merely lay out my thoughts. I truly had no idea what to expect. Mr. Siegel spent a good two hours with me. He broke out my case in layman's terms, focusing on the strengths and weaknesses of my issues.
Throughout the process, he was a bulldog in terms of representing my wants and needs with my then-employer. It should be noted that he maintained a level of professionalism throughout. After about 6 weeks, my situation was resolved, and I could not have been happier.
Marc represented me in a personal issue with a former employer. He was caring and informative and outlined options and possibilities for my case. My phone calls were always promptly returned and his communication was excellent. My case was resolved in my favor through Marc's expertise. I was favorable impressed throughout the entire process.
Marc Siegel represented me during a dispute over terms of a separation agreement with my former employer.
From the moment he agreed to take the case, his attentiveness, confidence, and diligence never waivered. He approached the matter professionaly, yet with a personal touch. I knew I was in good hands by the way he explained the case as he saw it and by the way he plotted our course of legal action. Never once did I feel he was talking down to me or over my head. He constantly kept me informed, either through e-mails or phone calls. When called upon, his associates also provided the utmost professional service.
The resolution, reached quite expeditiously, was most positive for me. I am certain such a resolution could not have been attained on my own or -- perhaps -- even with another attorney.
I would not hesistate to use Marc's services again, and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal representation.
