Thomas Robert Siegel

About me

I work primarily in criminal defense, juvenile cases, family law and general litigation. I am licensed to practice law in the State of Illinois, the State of Iowa, the Federal District Court of the 7th Circuit, Central District of Illinois and before the Supreme Court of the United States.


When I'm not at work I enjoy a variety of activities such as keeping fit, keeping bees, playing guitar, riding my motorcycle, attending auto enthusioast gatherings, sport shooting and SCUBA diving.
