Dan’s expertise ranges from handling everything from major mass torts and arguing before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to smaller matters like appearing in traffic court during his 38-year career.

Havertown Philadelphia Pennsylvania attorney Dan Siegel has handled everything from multimillion-dollar class actions to small claims matters, and of course, he has and continues to represent clients in automobile, workers’ compensation, and slip and fall cases, each with the same level of personal attention to his client’s concerns. Whether a case needs to go to trial, settle, or be appealed, Dan will do what is in the client’s best interests, and the results show. Notably, he has been named Best Lawyers® 2022 Workers’ Compensation Law – Claimants “Lawyer of the Year” in Philadelphia.
Dan’s appeals court decisions have protected and broadened the rights of countless people in areas ranging from workers’ compensation to motor vehicle insurance to personal injury. Commentators have noted that Dan’s cases have benefited more injured persons than any other Pennsylvania lawyer’s cases over the past 17 years. Judges also comment about the quality of writing in Dan’s briefs, and regularly cite his work in their opinions. As a result, Dan is the go-to workers’ compensation attorney and personal injury attorney that other Pennsylvania lawyers consult to help with their challenging cases.
Clients appreciate the personal attention they receive from Dan, his colleague, Christa Frank High, Esquire, and paralegal/office administrator Pamela Myers, each of whom embraces their client-first approach.
When Dan opened his Havertown Delaware County office, he wanted to be the “neighborhood lawyer” for his friends and neighbors – and one of the main reasons he opened in Havertown, not Media, was to be closer to his clients. Then Dan was elected Haverford Township Commissioner, and he truly became the lawyer his neighbors called for advice. It also led Dan to create his estate planning and unique “Pay Once, Revise for Life Estate Planning Program.” Coupled with the firm’s comprehensive interview process, the stress of estate planning is reduced, because there are no further costs for clients of the Haverfor-Havertown wills lawyer.
In addition, Dan helps his clients with buying and selling homes, and other matters that “everyday” people experience so that they can stay in the local area and be represented by someone they know and trust.
