Excellent lawyer
I had the pleasure of working with Lisa on my disability case. She was extremely knowledgable and always got back to me. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking for a disability lawyer.

My Highest Recommendation - An Invaluable Asset!
Lisa helped me with my disability case. It was a very professional, yet pleasant experience from day one thru the hearing. She is very knowledgeable regarding what to expect, and as a result, I was completely prepared for the entire process. She was a tremendous help and her experience was an invaluable asset at the hearing. I am completely satisfied and happy not only with her professionalism and the results, but also with her demeanor and communication. She has my highest recommendation! • • •

Honest and Effective
Lisa is pleasant, organized, and effective. She's honest--never asked us to stretch the truth to benefit our case, which we greatly appreciated. To process a lot of cases at a time, she doesn't meet with clients until a hearing date is set, so don't expect an initial in-person interview. I feel she was respected by our judge for her integrity and hard work, and that helped my husband's case ("fully favorable" decision.)

Social Security Expertise
Lisa recently advised me regarding a Social Security benefit matter. She was expert, thorough, and clearly explained and documented the SSA’s calculation process to me. Lisa made sure that I understood the SSA’s process used to determine the benefit and patiently answered all of my questions. Lisa has a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding Social Security benefits. I’m very glad my wise attorney referred me to Lisa in this matter and highly recommended her to anyone seeking advice about Social Security matters. She could not have been more expert or helpful.

Professional Excellence!
Lisa worked with me on my disability case. I had no idea on what to expect but from day one Lisa made me feel at ease. She is super knowledgeable in all aspects and she had me fully prepared to go before the judge. Her experience is invaluable! She has my highest recommendation. She's a beautiful person both inside and out.

Highly recommended
Lisa knows her stuff, very knowledgeable and she'll ease your mind because she knows how to explain things so you can understand it. She's a very nice person and is very good at returning messages or calls pretty quick. She makes you feel comfortable and that was one of the things I liked the most. Because if I'm not comfortable Its hard to talk. But her personality made sure your comfortable. I would tell anyone that needed any kind of ssi lawyer to use Lisa.

Helpful and Through Amazing Lawyer
I called her about a Social Security Disability issue and she talked to me on the phone for 30 minutes to answer my questions. She was amazingly helpful and offered good direction. She then wished me well and charged me nothing. I asked her about the cost of a consult and she just me talk. Thank you to her.....

I was the caretaker for my husband when I desperately contacted Ms Seigel asking for help. She was absolutely outstanding. Any and every time I called her she was available. And when she wasn’t I heard from her the following day. She was thorough in getting my husbands social security disability. With everything that was happening in my world, I don’t think I could have processed and submitted documents to ssa without her. She knows every end and out of the process and she made my life so much easier.

Brilliant & Excellent Attorney
I made one of the most important and best decisions in my life by choosing Lisa Smith Siegel to represent me in my disability case. She made the ordeal bearable by advising me to stay positive, and by staying in communication with me thru out the whole process. She did her due dilligence, gathered all the neccessary information then presented it to the judge. When the decision was announced I was brought to tears for the successful and favorable outcome... "THANK YOU" Lisa for being the best! I would strongly recommend this firm.

Awesome Attorney!
After being told by another disability attorney that I did not have a case due to my age (under 50), occupation and medical condition, I decided to search around and found Lisa Siegel - and she took my case AND I received a fully favorable decision from the judge!! Even though the disability process can be lengthy, she always let me know what to expect each step of the way. She was always very responsive and knowledgeable to any questions/concerns I had. If you are looking for a professional, trustworthy and hard-working disability attorney, I highly recommend Lisa.

Excellent responsive lawyer
When we chose lisa to represent us during our fileing with ssi we didn’t know where to start. She clearly explained the process, put us at ease, and continued to guide us thru this year long process. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the disability process and her and her staff are great about getting back in touch with us regarding every question and concern we have had. If you want a lawyer that will return your phone calls, answer your questions , and guide you smoothly thru the process we would recommend that you take a look at hiring Lisa as your attorney.... we couldn’t have found a better attorney....

Finally a Great Attorney!
I had been through three disability attorneys before I came to Lisa, three. Disability attorneys, good ones, are not easy to find. Being able to trust that your information, records, dates of things to be signed, filed, filled out, etc., is all in order without having to chase your lawyer down, is the best feeling ever!! We are disabled, right? This is a tough process, so we need a capable attorney! Trust me, Lisa takes control and puts all of your fears and questions to rest. You are in EXCELLENT hands. I am so SO glad that I found Lisa, I truly don’t think I would have had a win without her guidance.
