Attorney Profile

The founder of Seigel Law, Jonas K. Seigel has developed a reputation as a highly skilled advocate for his clients in Ridgewood, New Jersey, and throughout Essex, Bergen and Passaic counties. His practice is entirely focused on plaintiff's personal injury and medical malpractice, representing clients who have been harmed by the negligence of others.

Mr. Seigel received a Bachelor of Arts at Goucher College before commencing his legal studies at what is now known as Western Michigan University Cooley Law School. He graduated in 2007 with his Juris Doctor and was subsequently admitted to practice law before the state courts of New Jersey and the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. He later returned to school to complete his LL.M. in Trial Advocacy at Temple University Beasley School of Law, graduating in 2011.

During his career, Mr. Seigel has already amassed an impressive record. He has been named as a member of The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40. He is a lifetime member of both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. These two organizations limit their memberships to attorneys who have secured seven- and eight-figure verdicts and settlements for their clients in single cases. Mr. Seigel is also a member of the Top Trial Lawyers in America and was the recipient of an Editor's Choice Award for a book that he co-authored, "Consumer Advocate."

 
Mr. Seigel is dedicated to giving back and is actively involved in several charitable causes including his own - the Seigel Law Charity Fund. In 2010, he received the Paul Patti Humanitarian of the Year Award in recognition of his work with the Boys and Girls Club of Lodi & Hackensack. Presently, Mr. Seigel serves as an Advisory Board member of Paterson Habitat for Humanity and a member of the St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center Foundation.    

 

Lastly, when Mr. Seigel is not serving his community, he is serving his bar associations. Currently, Mr. Seigel serves as a Trustee of the New Jersey State Bar Association, a Trustee of the Passaic County Bar Association, a Trustee of the Bergen County Bar Foundation, a Board of Governor of New Jeresy Association for Justice, and an Executive Committee Member of the National Trial Lawyers. He also enjoys writing articles and lecturing for the abovementioned organizations on topics such as trial techniques and ethics. Mr. Seigel was recently asked to return to Temple Law School as an adjunct professor and looks forward to lecturing to law students and lawyers alike.
