Attorney Profile

Attorney Ken Sigelman has been handling cerebral palsy and other catastrophic injury cases for more than 38 years. He has personally litigated many cases to successful conclusion through jury trial, arbitration or settlement, including numerous recoveries of more than $10 million.

Dr. Sigelman is not only a lawyer but also a licensed physician and surgeon. His medical background helps him at every phase of a severe injury case, including identifying the significant medical issues, understanding medical records, identifying medical specialties, understanding the medical jargon used by defendant doctors and insurance companies, and explaining all this in simple terms to a jury at trial.

Dr. Sigelman graduated in 1976 with honors from the University of Florida College of Law where he was Executive Editor of the Law Review, and from the University of Miami School of Medicine in 1981. He passed the California Bar Exam while interning at St. Mary's Hospital in San Francisco and then began practicing law in March 1983. He has received the Trial Lawyer of the Year award from the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego (CASD) twice, has served as President of CASD and of the San Diego Chapter of the highly selective American Board of Trial Advocates, is a fellow of the American College of Legal Medicine, and has received numerous awards from the Consumer Attorneys of California for his efforts on behalf of victims of medical negligence.
