“... Marc and team gave me their full attention and made sure I was confident with the decisions that we were making. They advised, gave insight and talked me down when needed.

"Marc Siegel took time to listen ... and made my priorities his priorities. He was supportive and incredibly comforting as I had never needed a lawyer in my life before. When I finally got one I was so relieved, as Marc said, to let him handle it as I had been going it alone for so long. It helped my life so much and he personally called to give me the news that things had been worked out and justice had arrived. It meant a lot to me to have him working for me and take the time to provide such great client service.
I couldn't be happier with the respect and attention I got from Marc and his staff. I would recommend him to anyone and especially people who are as uncomfortable as I was at first.

Terminated After 26 Years – Siegel & Dolan Negotiates Settlement Agreement
"When I was terminated from my employer of 26 years, Marc was the perfect person to represent me. He was highly recommended by my network. He was compassionate about my situation and listened to all that had transpired. He talked me through his strategy recommendation and then took control of the negotiation with my former employer. Marc was able to put our best arguments forward while remaining calm and professional. I believe I got a fair deal from my employer and kept my professionalism and dignity in the process. I highly recommend Marc Siegel."~ C.P.
"Marc Siegel and his staff were very helpful in helping me obtain payment for work completed from a previous employer.

"Retaining Patrick’s legal services and professional advice was both prudent and highly productive. He helped me navigate through my employment agreement negotiation, advised me on the necessary steps to uphold my prior employer restrictive covenant/non-disclosure obligations and new employer expectations, and explained in a straightforward way how the contract and hiring process would proceed that allowed me to focus on making the most of my new opportunity. Working with Siegel & Dolan was an essential investment in my future success and for Patrick’s approach and advice I am very grateful."~ D.S.
"Marc laid out my options and guided me during the discussions with my previous employer. He sought my opinion during the process and his continued guidance during these discussions was invaluable. As I am not experienced in negotiations, Marc was helpful in pointing out when enough was enough. He suggested the dollar difference was immaterial enough, that I could indicate I was done discussing and they should either accept or I would file. His read on the situation made sense to me, I agreed and was successful. Last, his grasp of Illinois law and its application to my situation was very helpful in obtaining an agreement.
My family and I thank you!"~ D.S.Y.
Handled my situation professionally
"Marc handled my situation professionally throughout. From the initial meeting of gathering the information, discussing the process he would take, importantly keeping me up to date with concise communication as to the progress, to a satisfactory resolution."~ E. W.
Very comfortable and addressed all of my concerns expeditiously
I hired Siegel and Dolan to represent me in an employment law matter regarding the terms of a separation agreement.

With his skilled knowledge and expertise, he was able to negotiation, what seemed like a hopeless matter, into a very positive outcome on my behalf. For employment law representation, I highly recommend Mr. Manewith as well as the Siegel & Dolan law firm.~ J. C.

Mr. Siegel handled every aspect of the arbitration with confidence and professionalism.
Mr. Siegel was able to resolve the dispute and deliver a very satisfactory outcome.

"Marc's expertise, professionalism, and compassion made a very difficult time in my life much easier. Throughout my experience with his law firm, they have consistently made only decisions which were in my best interest, while performing at the highest level of integrity. I sincerely believe that any other attorney would have failed to achieve what this firm has accomplished. I can't say enough good things about Marc and his associates."~ J.F.
"Marc provided very sound and practical advice to me, a legal and compliance executive from a Fortune 100 company that thought they already knew the issues involved with separation arrangements. However, Marc’s expertise and demeanor was critical in bringing my situation to a very successful resolution, all without the use of legal threats and intimidation. Not that we weren’t prepared to do so, but it’s a much more pleasant and satisfying experience to resolve a personal situation without the unnecessary adversarial attitude.
Marc quickly surmised the particular issues surrounding my situation and counseled me in a personal manner specifically suited to my unique issues, not simply placing my issues in a cookie-cutter agreement. His calm demeanor and professionalism was much appreciated in such a situation.
I highly recommend Marc and his colleagues should you ever come into an employment situation where quality legal advice will be imperative to successfully resolving your matter."~ J.T.
