    Five FAQs About Our Practice Areas

    Whether you’re a small business owner or an individual facing legal trouble, we understand how difficult and frustrating litigation can be. To help you learn more about how we can help, we’ve compiled this list of five frequently asked questions related to our practice areas, including business litigation, civil rights litigation, commercial litigation, disability web access, and discrimination litigation. For more information on our legal services, contact us today!

    What Does A Business Litigation Lawyer Do?

    Business litigation lawyers handle a wide variety of legal disputes that can arise in the course of running a business. They may represent businesses in court, or they may work with businesses to reach an out-of-court settlement. Businesses can be sued for breach of contract, fraud, or other claims.

    Commercial litigation covers legal issues that affect a business or organization. For example, such disputes can include disagreements over corporate governance, employee rights and responsibilities, or consumer protection. Business litigation lawyers may also handle employment matters, such as disputes with employees over pay or benefits. They may also represent business owners in contractual disputes — like disagreements over insurance coverage or failed deals with other businesses — and can help small businesses address a variety of commercial problems.

    How Does A Civil Rights Lawyer Help?

    A civil rights lawyer helps by protecting the rights of individuals who have been discriminated against. They also work to ensure that all people have equal access to opportunities and resources. In addition, they may help individuals file lawsuits if they feel their civil rights have been violated. The cases a civil rights lawyer may handle include employment discrimination, discrimination in housing or public accommodations, disability discrimination, sexual harassment and other types of gender-based violence. If you are experiencing these issues or would like more information about our practice areas, please contact us today.

    What Do I Need For My Meeting With A Commercial Litigation Lawyer?

    You should bring any documents that are relevant to your case, including any correspondence you have had with the other party, any contracts or agreements, and any other documentation that may be helpful. It is also helpful to bring a list of questions for your lawyer. You should be prepared to discuss your case in detail and provide as much information as possible.

    What Does A Disability Web Access Lawyer Do?

    A disability web access lawyer helps make sure that websites are accessible to people with disabilities. This includes ensuring that the website can be used with screen readers and other assistive technologies, and that it complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA prohibits discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, transportation services, and telecommunications.

    Who Does A Discrimination Litigation Lawyer Represent?

    A discrimination litigation lawyer represents people who feel they have been treated unfairly because of their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, or disability. If you have been subjected to harassment or unequal treatment at work, or if you have been denied housing or access to public accommodations because of your protected status, you may be a victim of discrimination. Contact an experienced discrimination litigation lawyer as soon as possible so that your legal rights can be enforced.

    • At Eric Siegel Law, we combine over 30 years of legal knowledge and courtroom experience with over a decade in business and real estate, to find the best solution to our clients’ legal issues. Eric Siegel has worn many hats besides that of lawyer. His varied experiences outside of law that include being a landlord, owner, investor and public-private partner, to name just a few, add a layer of understanding about the effects that simple business decisions and practices can have on a business. This enhances and adds to his already fully equipped “legal toolbox”.

    • Working with Eric Siegel Law will get you the undivided attention you would hope for from a small firm but unlike most boutique law firms, we are also affiliated with a mid-sized law firm that has a global presence, and we can call upon “big firm” resources and personnel when this will be of benefit to our clients. We know that a person’s legal issues are not just about winning or losing their case, it’s also about not losing the good things in their life while doing it. Being able to maintain your livelihood, your relationships with family and friends, your freedoms and other important and significant parts of your individual life- we consider these things alongside our resolve to help our clients to resolve their legal problems.

    • Mr. Siegel has successfully conducted jury and bench trials in federal and state courts in different parts of the United States. In addition to his stellar track record for both these avenues, he has also represented clients before various administrative federal and state agencies, including but not limited to the Merit Systems Protection Board, the US Department of Labor and the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
      Mr. Siegel is admitted to practice civil law in the District of Columbia, Maryland and New York, as well as, the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, Fourth, Fifth and Federal Circuits, U.S. District Courts for the District of Columbia, Maryland, Northern and Southern Districts of New York, U.S. Court of Veterans Appeals and the U.S. Court of Claims.

    • Eric L. Siegel has a passion and extensive experience with working for the benefit of hard-working Americans. He brings to his current practice, his experience as a former trial attorney with the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, as well as his experience as a veteran services organization lawyer that represented veterans who were seeking previously denied service-connected disability benefits. These experiences, along with many others that showed Eric the many injustices people suffer on a daily basis in the United States, have fueled his almost militant devotion to pursuing justice and helping to uphold the rights of honest, hard working Americans.

    "Eric was extremely helpful and responsive. I was able to quickly understand all options available to help deal with my situation."

    "Mr. Siegel was professional and responsive. Took the time to truly know my case and gave me honest and insightful feedback while not looking at a price tag. Working with various attorneys in my livelihood, this counsel is one the best as you will get a genuine feeling of care. If I had to do it all over again I would have started with Mr. Siegel. Thank you again!"
    Trevor Pacheco
    "A TRUE professional! Eric was lightning fast to diagnose the issues and get right to work on my case. He kept his time and fees reasonable throughout, and his expertise was clear with each communication and the result. I would use him again for any legal matters, and refer him unreservedly."
    Jason Herman
    "Eric provided me with extremely helpful advice on a complex and multi-faceted case I presented to him basically out of the blue. He was very responsive and did an excellent job of cutting to the heart of the issue. Highly recommended."
    Ian Day
    "I hired Eric earlier this year to take over a federal employment case that I had been battling since 2016. By then, the agency and several objectively awful judges had already derailed my case. It was a real consolation to work with Eric because he was the only attorney of perhaps a dozen others I had consulted who took the time to understand the details of my case, as opposed to giving me platitudes and speaking in generalities. We spent several hours hashing out important details, and by the end of his representation of me, he understood the events of my case better than I did, even though I experienced those events first-hand. He is a true advocate for people who get absolutely screwed over by the incompetence of federal agencies and judges. The key to winning your case is retaining a good attorney early. The only regret I have is that I didn't find Eric sooner. Do yourself a favor: If you're involved in a WPA case, or any other case, and are being put through the ringer by your agency, another attorney, an administrative judge, or anyone else -- just give Eric a call. You'll be able to sleep at night, and you'll probably win."
    Harold Rutila

    "Eric was instrumental in finalizing my settlement agreement after a long, drawn out retaliation case. He thoroughly reviewed my case and not only had an excellent understanding of the legal aspects but other potential factors that affected my case that past attorneys did not take into account.

Throughout the entire process, I felt I was well represented and would recommend Eric to anyone looking for a highly skilled attorney."
