With over two decades of experience, Mr. Seigel has practiced in both Federal and State Courts, skillfully defending a broad array of cases at both the trial and appellate levels.

He has also successfully defended clients facing other serious charges, including narcotics, DWI, sexual offenses, and violent crimes.

His extensive knowledge and achievements in this field, along with his representation of various high-profile clients, have led Mr. Seigel to appear frequently as a legal commentator for Court TV and other media outlets, as well as to lecture to his colleagues and publish materials on issues of criminal law and procedure.
