Outstanding Lawyer -Vast Knowledge and Experience
We had an absolutely outstanding experience with Mark Siegel -We called Mark for a free consultation and he called me back personally on a holiday (as my case was time sensitive) his paralegal followed up with me the next day -And then Mark called back again to answer a question the paralegal wasn't sure of. Mark gave my husband and I a phone consultation - answering every question we had; he patiently explained the law as it related to our case and highlighted his opinion with examples of his vast knowledge and experience. I highly recommend attorney Mark Siege!

Really Great Lawyer
Mark has help me solve several legal issues over the years that I really needed help with. He made himself available when I needed him and I got some really good advice. Plus, he handled situations very professionally and got the results that I wanted. He is a good negotiator.

Mark Siegel is a wonderful lawyer
Mark Siegel helped my husband and I with estate planning. He was very attentive, knowledgeable and helpful. He was also available for some help regarding other estate issues by phone. I highly recommend Mr. Siegel and would not hesitate in using him again for other legal issues.

Really Good Courtroom Lawyer

Finding the right person
My wife and I were in need of a local, knowledgable, responsive, and trustworthy lawyer to help settle an estate involving a trust. It also included the sale of a condo. After working briefly with another lawyer, we decided that a change was needed. This was primarily due to a lack of responsiveness to our needs. Mark Siegel was recommended by a trusted advisor, and we met with Mark. Mark is a good listener, knowledgeable, and very responsive. In short order, Mark was able to draw up the contract for the sale of the condo, and advise us on the best ways to move ahead with liquidating the other assets within the trust. Mark will also take the lead with the closing of the condo. I would highly recommend him for matters described above.

Client referrals
As a business consultant, I rely on the professionals in my network. Mr. Siegel has handled the communication challenges inherent in my work with grace and a smile. That goes a long way, of course, it helps that the outcome was that my client was given unrestricted access to their leasehold property again after having been illegally barred from the premises. Mr. Siegel's communications with the opposing council were not only effective, they were well written. Something I greatly appreciate in this age of text-speak and ransom apostrophes.

An Answer to My Legal Problems
I have Mark extremely talented in all phases of real estate transactions and family trusts. In both these areas, he saved me money and potential legal problems so that the sale of my real estate was completed much to my advantage. He has great knowledge in other affiliated areas of the law and has been very forthcoming in contributing to the solution of many other legal problems.

Loan Modification
Mr Siegel did a great job helping me navigate a potential forclosure, and was instrumental in securing a loan modification. He was always prompt to respond and was knowledge of the facts. He got the job done in a timely manner.

No service rendered after fee was collected
We hired Mr Siegel to write a letter. It has been 3 weeks today and no letter has been written. 2 weeks ago Mr Siegel called us after we sent a new client inquiry (we had no response to our regular e-mails) and Mr Siegel acted like he had completely forgotten about our case. A week ago, I sent an email to Mr Siegel asking when my letter will be ready and received no response. Mr Siegel did take the time to meet with us, but did not provide any service afterwards after he collected his fee.
