in estate, will, and trust disputes. The Firm furnishes
a “concierge” level of service, accessibility, responsiveness,

More About Dan

Dan places a premium on providing a “concierge” level of service, accessibility, responsiveness, and value for every client.

Dan prides himself in not only serving as a legal advisor to clients, but also a counselor in navigating the emotional elements presented in each case.  The Law Offices of Daniel A. Seigel provide exceptional legal counsel in the areas of probate and trust litigation.

Dan Seigel founded the Firm after he realized that a growing number of women and men had been robbed of their inheritance by “unsavory” individuals. The significant elderly population in South Florida, combined with the number of individuals who will stop at nothing to prey on these victims, has created a feeding-frenzy for exploitation and outright theft of inheritance assets.

Inheritance disputes require an attorney who has a unique passion to “right” the “wrong” – achieving both financial and moral justice.  Dan Seigel is that attorney. He prides himself in being as committed and emotionally invested in each case as his client.  Each case is pushed and advanced as quickly as possible.

Attorney Seigel prides himself on being the most responsive attorney in America.  All clients receive rapid responses to their questions, comments, and concerns from an attorney who is both experienced and successful.

Attorney Seigel is not just an attorney … he is a counselor.  Through many years of handling a diverse spectrum of inheritance-related disputes, Attorney Seigel understands the emotional challenges posed by these cases.  He seeks to get clients to focus on the tangible objective in a case and make pragmatic decisions.

Attorney Seigel personally handles each case to ensure the highest level of representation for all clients. There is no “delegation” of cases or tasks to a junior partner or associate as such, clients have one point of contact and one person who is solely responsible for the advancement of their matter and ultimately the result.

The Firm has the ability to handle a diverse spectrum of matters – many of which cannot be handled by larger firms. As a result, on appropriate matters, the Firm will work on a fixed-fee or contingency fee basis.

In short, for any client who is looking for the most passionate, responsive, and compassionate attorney for their probate, trust, or inheritance-related disputes, they should call the Law Offices of Daniel A. Seigel.

“Attorney Seigel serves as not only a legal advisor,
but also a counselor to clients in navigating the emotional
issues presented in each case.”

superlawyers

The Firm was founded on several governing principles,
which will always be hallmarks of our practice:

 

Zealous Representation

No one will work harder on your matter – period. Attorney Seigel treats every matter
as if it were his own dispute. That means “dropping everything” to have a weekend
meeting, taking a client’s phone call at 2:00 a.m., and being over-prepared for
every deposition, hearing, and trial.

Extreme Responsiveness

Attorney Seigel responds to all phone calls, e-mails, and letters within 12 hours of receipt. Attorney Seigel’s clients know that he is accessible 24/7, and they will always have his undivided attention and feel that they are his most important client because they are.

Unmatched Value

The Firm offers competitive billable rates and does not charge for paralegal
time and internet research.

Client Reviews

Dan places a premium on providing a “concierge” level of service,
accessibility, responsiveness, and value for every client.

“Dan Seigel and his staff helped my family through a very emotional issue. He was always available
to answer our questions and was able to successfully guide us through the legal process.
We sincerely thank him for all of his help and would certainly recommend him to anyone going
through probate problems.”

Jeffrey E. Deron – Toms River, New Jersey

Dan represented me in very professional and supportive ways. He continuously connected with me during the process, kept me informed of the status of the case, and was always determined to secure the best possible outcome for me.

As this case was an emotional one for me, Dan was sensitive to my every concern. Dan aggressively instituted his expertise in various ways to reach the best settlement. I am grateful for his guidance and hard work on my behalf.

I would certainly refer Dan to my friends and family if they were in need of legal advice in Dan’s specific practice of law.

Dan is a personable attorney and is reassuring when representing a client. My experience with him was an excellent one and I am grateful he was there to represent me in the legal battle that has now been settled.

— LYNN NOBIL | BOCA RATON, FLORIDA

Dan had a very clear understanding of how emotional and difficult a family matter can be. His legal expertise and tireless work resulted in a very satisfactory settlement. His friendship and understanding made a very difficult time much easier to get through.
