I handle only criminal cases.  Probably 80% of those cases are DUI related.  My office consists of me and my assistant.  So, when you hire my firm, you know that I will personally handle your case.  I strive to make certain that all clients are treated professionally and accorded the respect that each one wants and deserves.  A criminal allegation is serious and stressful.  I understand that besides having legal knowledge and ability, a client must receive proper time, care, and attention.

Amazing attorney and office staff
My case was a very difficult situation. From the very beginning Chip and Connie were there to help. Very polite and on top of my case. They consistently kept in touch with me throughout the entire process. I live out of state and travel for work all the time and they were able to handle everything over the phone and through emails without me having to come back to Vegas. This charge would have been a felony DUI and Chip was able to have it reduced to a 1st offense misdemeanor which far exceeded my expectations. Chip was always up front and honest with me about what the outcomes could possibly be and never sugar coated anything which was greatly appreciated instead of a false hope. I will always refer anybody with a DUI charge to Chip's office without hesitation. Thank you guys!

Absolutely the best DUI Lawyer
Getting a DUI was absolutely one of the scariest things to happen to me. Hiring Chip was by far one of the best. First, I was referred to Chip by a Las Vegas Police Officer friend, so that should immediately tell you he's well known. I had never had an interaction with the law, and my situation was complicated, with a new unregistered vehicle, out of state license, and arrest technically outside of Las Vegas. It was so stressful and I had no idea how to deal with it myself. When I first called, Chip himself returned my call in less than 10 minutes and talked to me for close to a half hour. You are NOT getting a firm with a random JV lawyer assigned to you. You will mostly be dealing with Chip himself, a former prosecuting attorney. The only other member of his staff is Connie, who is the sweetest person in the universe and was my mom away from home during this ordeal. She answers the phone most of the time, and has a LOT of experience and advice herself. When I contacted Chip's office by phone, Connie would either immediately help, or I'd hear from Chip within the hour. If I e-mailed, Chip's usual response time was less than 4 hours. This is by far the most impressive professional interaction I've ever had with anyone. You never feel rushed or like you're too much, they always have time for you. As far as my legal case, Chip had already arranged with the prosecutor to have the case dismissed! We may have been in the court for 60 seconds, and the case completely disappeared forever. More impressive, the dismissal was based on a recent state supreme court ruling that I NEVER would have known about myself (and I doubt most other lawyers would have either). Chip was also frank, never overpromised or set expectations, and came out with both good and bad news prepared and confidant. I am so grateful to Chip and Connie for making this craziness end and making a super tough situation a breeze. There are people out there like Chip and Connie who truly make the difference.

Got a DUI? HIRE JAY!
If you are being accused of a DUI, hire a lawyer! Let Chip go to court for you. I have made not one, but two mistakes. The first time I did not hire a lawyer. I told myself, I'll be good, I will never drink and drive!! I didn't!! I was in an accident and the cop accused me of being drunk, I wasn't. They still accused me and I was tested. THC counts people! While I wasn't driving high, it was concentrated in my blood. Chip has communicated and helped alleviate a ton of stress throughout my ordeal. His office notified me of a change of date for a court appearance before I received it in the mail. Any questions I have via email are replied to very rapidly! And he is a very nice guy!!

THE ONE AND ONLY DUI LAWYER
Absolute professional! Chip is an intelligent and compassionate man. He is a direct, NO BS, straight shooter. Connie, his ONLY secretary, is always available and so genuine and kind. My case was an extremely difficult one, and somehow, Chip got a DUI down to a reckless. He is THE ONLY person in Las Vegas you need to hire if you want the most knowledgeable and powerful lawyer to fight for you. Do NOT waste another second searching. You found the GEM!

A True Professional
Chip is very attentive to his clients needs and provides excellent and professional service. My case was a very minor one, but Chip still always found the time to answer any questions or concerns I may have had. He was always just a phone call or text away, and responded courteously and promptly whenever I needed. He kept me informed and was always open and honest. My case was resolved as I had hoped! 5 star service by a 5 star lawyer. Thank you Chip for your excellent service!!!!!

Defense Attorney
The day I hired Chip was the most memorable day in my life prior to becoming problematic. Chip and his firm walked me through all the processes I needed to do. He was able to make a unfavorable mistake full of second chances. He made sure that He will do his best in order to get the most favorable outcome. Salute to his plan of ideas into the defense I was hoping for. I strongly recommend this firm 101% not to mention a very reliable and credible, soft spoken, kind hearted and only office staff. 2 of them working made sure Chip treated a possible case full of attention and quality time. Highly worth the search. Kudos and thank you

Case Reduced and Closed Early
I put myself in an unfortunate situation by driving irresponsibly. I faced a lot of potential negative consequences from this, including potential impact to my career. Through word of mouth, I came to know of Mr. Siegel. I could tell was an expert in this type of case and had vast experience. He let me know what to expect and diligently guided me through certain requirements I needed to meet, in most cases even allowing me to complete them before they were even ordered by the court. I did not need to expend much of my time or energy on the case. I simply followed the instructions and plan laid out by Mr. Siegel and let him take care of the case. The result, a reduction in the charge and early case closure, was better than I expected. Throughout the process, Mr. Siegel was available for any questions via e-mail, and replied to inquiries promptly. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Warrant Quashed and Case Dismissed
Chip Seigel is way better than advertised. He was an amazing help to me and my situation and I recommend him as your counsel, attorney, or whatever you need! I found him through a Google search for legal counsel in Nevada which could be slightly uncomfortable. I used the live chat function on his website as a good millennial should, and someone reached out right away. The person on the other side gathered the info on why I needed counsel and said someone would get back to me in 24 hours. Chip reached out to me in literally less than an hour later asking me more questions. He made me feel super safe and I decided to hire him on as my counsel right away. I needed Chip to represent me in a criminal case that I had three years ago. I am a CA resident that had a little stint in vegas when I was younger. I was arrested on the strip and failed to show up to court. I needed these offenses cleared for something important happening in my life. On the phone, Chip laid out exactly what he needed to do to clear my case, exactly how much it would cost (no games), and even emailed a summary of what we talked about. Within the agreed time frame he got my warrant quashed and my case dismissed and got my record sealed. Connie, his assistant also called to check up on me and to let me know that my case was fixed the morning it happened. At like 8:30 am!! Mr. Siegel was incredible to work and represented me so well. Again, thank you so much for everything you did.

Best criminal defense attorney
I hired Chip for my dads case where he violated probation and parole that happened 8 years ago. Chip was straightforward and punctual dealing with this case. We set up a trust account to ask the district attorney. To dismiss the case without the felony. When full amount was paid they dismiss the case without a felony and my dad was out of jail. Thank you so much Chip!

Case DISMISSED!
A few month back my fiance needed some legal help. Like most needing an attorney and have had past experiences utilizing attorneys we were looking for someone special. We needed some serious help, really a miracle. Chip was our 1st appointment out of 5 that day. We arrived at his office and could immediately tell this was a law firm that succeeds in this business and success was what we needed. We were introduced to Connie and immediately Connie was warm, calm and welcoming. She introduced us to Chip and we walked into his office. By the decor in Chips office you could tell that this was a lawyer with many merits and in the City of Las Vegas. During our meeting Chip was very poinient, direct, inquisitive and very kind. He explained the whole process and wanted to make sure we were leaving his office with no questions to later stress over. He also added a personal touch and talked about his history including his beautiful family. We then explained to Chip what we had budgeted for this and Chip was gracious and accomodated our financial needs if we chose to obtain him. We explained we needed some time to discuss the matter and also had other appointments that day. On our way out Connie greeted us again and it took just minutes for us to realize that Chip Siegel and his team was exactly what we we needed. We cancelled all other appointments and walked back to his office. From that moment forward it was clear that Chip if anybody could acquire the results we needed. I am going to sum this up by saying that a few short months went by and we recieved a call. Chip had some remarkable news, her case was dismissed and we only needed to pay a small fine. Good people can make some poor choices in life and sadly my fiance made a very honest mistake, the law can be unforgiving and cruel. Chip Siegel and Connie made sure that justice was on our our side and this was a win for not just my fiance but myself. We shared this burden together. Chip and Connie, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We prayed for a miracle and recieved just that!

Handled magnificently
I was charged with DUI in Las Vegas, however had plans of moving out of state for work. This worried me, however Chip ensured me to go about my life and he’d handle the whole thing. That is in fact what he did. From afar, he kept me informed on any requirements on my end, and took care of every court date and every aspect in Nevada. The final outcome was as favorable as could be- I had to take a couple online classes and pay a (very small) fine to the court. He was able to close the case without my ever once stepping foot into a courtroom or disrupting my new job and new life in a different state. It was truly a great feeling when he wrapped everything up, and I can’t imagine anyone else making the whole process this simple and worry free.
