Attorney Profile

I am a seasoned and creative trial lawyer with 38 years of experience practicing in central New Jersey. I cut my eye teeth in the insurance defense field and have morphed my practice into one engaged primarily in plaintiff's personal injury. I handle motor vehicle accidents, premises and other types of general negligence cases.  I have found that I derive more personal and professional satisfaction representing people than institutional clients. I enjoy being part of a team and I am very proud that my son, David Siegel has become a lawyer and a shareholder in the firm. I enjoy working with my staff to investigate and develop cases, as well as with my colleagues outside of my firm. I am Certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Civil Trial Lawyer, I have served on the District VIII Ethics Committee and serve as an Arbitrator in Superior Court. I currently serve on the Supreme Court Committee on the Unauthorized Practice of Law.
