Through, professional and responsive
Mr. Seigel handled a traffic matter recently for me. He found an innovative way to persuade the judge to dismiss the matter based on caselaw and prevailing law achieving the best possible result. I highly recommend.

Mr. Siegel was able to achieve the best possible outcome in my case. The case presented many challenges and the results could have been very damaging personally and professionally. Throughout the process, Mr Siegel continually answered all of my questions timely, thoughtfully and accurately. I would highly recommend Mr Siegel.

The lawyer you need and want
Rob immediately got the case information and took charge. He was responsive and explained the options. He worked hard to ensure I was well represented and most importantly, he got the charges dismissed. He worked a hard case where the accuser changed her story and facts. He prepared the case thoroughly and I would recommend him without hesitation! If I ever need a lawyer, he will be my choice!

Professional, honest and straight forward, Robert Siegel tells it like it is and provides excellent advice and guidance.
Robert Siegel represented me in a car accident case. This was the first time in over 30 years of driving that I had been involved in an accident. I was very scared and did not have any idea of the potential outcome. Mr. Siegel patiently explained my case to me and told me realistically what to expect. He laid out best and worst case scenarios. He never gave me false hope or expectations other than realistic facts. He also helped me with the MVA and provided thorough and honest representation. I highly recommend Mr. Siegel for his dedication to his clients, his professionalism, prompt responses, attention to detail and thorough representation.

successful settelment
Mr. Siegel represented me in Court. He was completely prepared, composed, and educated about my problem. Mr. Siegel needed to take me back to court two times to achieve a successful settlement. .I was quite pleased with the outcome..

A Freind For Life!!
Robert Siegel came through for my family at a pivotal time in our lives. I was referred to Robert by a mutual acquaintance. As always, I was skeptical but Robert quickly earned my families trust. He was knowlegable and laid out a plan that could improve my situation when it would come to a judgement. He kept my family informed of the process along the way during this difficult time. He exceeded my expectations before, during and after the judgement. I now consider Robert Siegel a lifelong friend and he still continously answers all my legal questions that may arise!!!

Not all attorney's care this much
Mr. Siegel is truly the benchmark for exemplary work in his field. I have used his services a handful of times throughout the years and felt safe and comforted each time. Unfortunately, I had a DUI in my immature youth, but thanks to my attorney I not only learned my lesson, but also came to understand all the possible ramifications that potentially could have been brought down upon me. I received probation and never looked back! I also had quite the lead foot in those younger years and needed to go to court a few times. Again, I learned my lesson and slowed down significantly, but Mr. Siegel was professional and fought for me to have both fee's reduced and not lose my license. In recent years, I had an issue with a former employer and immediately thought to call upon Mr. Siegel once again for advice and services. Without the need for court, Mr. Siegel dealt with the opposing attorney in a swift amount of time and I came out shining once again! I am a very happy client and would highly recommend Robert Siegel for anyone looking for an attorney that cares and listens!

Trustworthy.
I'd recommend Robert! He kept me informed and showed great understanding and support while he handled my case.

Very Profeesional and helpful!
I was asked to contact Robert Siegel do to the divorce I was going through. Robert took the time to explain everything and what my alternatives were. Since our first meeting, Robert has always been professional, courteous, and helpful. There have been times I have had questions of things that have come up and not knowing the law myself, or how it would effect my case, I have contacted Robert on each either by email or phone, he has always responded, normally within an hour, and provided me the legal advise needed to make sure I stay within the guidelines of my case. And has always looked out for my best interest. It has been a pleasure to have met Robert Siegel, to have him oversee my case and continue to look forward to working with him throughout the duration on my case. Thank you Robert Siegel. The specifics.....I was referred to Robert Siegel due to my separation and pending divorce. Due to the expenses the wife(soon to be ex) was putting on me, I couldn't hardly afford to live. Having reviewed all of my information, expenses, Robert explained what my options were, instructed me on what would happen based on my choice, and based on his options presented, Robert wound up filing my bankruptcy paperwork with the court, represented me in court, and has chosen to represent me throughout the duration of my bankruptcy.

I would highly recommend him.
Rob is very personable, approachable, and professional who has a good relationship with other attorneys. He thoroughly explained my situation to me and the pros and cons of my options. He made sure I made the best overall decision for me long-term. He is a bull dog when confronting difficult people or circumstances and has been a dedicated counsel and friend. I would highly recommend him.
