I am proud to announce that I have joined the law firm of Astor Weiss Kaplan & Mandel, LLP as a Partner in the Trusts & Estates department. I made this move after great reflection, thought, and discussion with my wife and family as to the next step in the evolution of my firm and my practice. After much time and debate, joining a law firm is the best move for my family, my clients, and my practice.
What this means to you, my client. This move will not change how we work together on estate planning, estate administration, special needs planning or elder law matters past, present, or in the future. In the past I was the attorney, paralegal, administrative assistant, accountant, billing department, marketing department, a jack of all trades.
Now, I have a full staff of attorneys, paralegals, and administrative support that will aid me when serving my clients. My clients will receive the same high level of legal counsel, advice, and service from me, my time will be better spent on your matters, and I no longer have to handle the day-to-day operation of a law firm that in the past took up a great deal of time. This also means, that I and my clients have backup and a point person in case I am on vacation or when I eventually, in the distant future, retire. I will be honoring all current agreements with my clients and you will still receive the same level of commitment and professionalism as before. Moving forward my fee structure will remain the same flat fee, hourly, or percentage based billing as you as used to when I was a solo practitioner.
The main office is in downtown Philadelphia, however, part of my deal to join the firm I have office space in Bucks County (Doylestown and Newtown) and Montgomery County as needed. You do not need to travel into town to work with me, as I am happy as always to meet closer to you and your location.
My family and I are proud and happy to share this news with you and I look forward working with you on a future estate planning, estate administration, special needs planning or elder law matter. My current David Siegel Law phone, email, and website will remain active for a month or so, then everything will forward to the new contact information.
