I had an auto collision (accident) in 2012. The other driver was at fault but wouldn't own up to it. I contacted Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. for assistance to get the attention and settlement my case deserved. I am glad I did because they worked with me for the time it took the other driver's insurance company to respond and give me my rightful entitlement. Mr. Rand Chatman and Mr. Joseph Smith both of this firm were assigned to my case. They were friendly, professional, respectful and very attentive to my need. I am glad I got to work with them and the firm. I highly recommend this firm if you need a place where you will be treated with dignity and your case gotten what it deserves. Great firm, great people. MarieStella

The care that I received with Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C was a great experience. There are times when accidents happen and you don't know where to turn to get the support and feeling that there is someone in your corner and who cares. From day one Mr. Rand Chapman ensured I fully understood the process and provided real time support. This gave me and assurance my needs were going to be taken care of. I just want to say the staff was always respectful and supportive during calls and ensuring I got the services needed. Again, I thank you and your staff for the kindness, caring and support. Mr. Cal-Abram Johnson

After a car accident in 2011 I was left with major migraines, plenty of medical bills, and an insurance company playing games with my case. I had a lawyer, whom in 2 years had done nothing to help resolve my case; I was in quite frustrated! That’s when I was recommended to Mr. Allan Siegel, and from there things just got better. Everyone one in the firm made it a point to come introduce themselves to my wife and I, and we were all ways greeted with a warm welcome. Allan jumped right into handling my case, and had made more movement with things in the first 2 weeks, than my previous lawyer had mad in 2 years. I was always kept in the loop as to what was going on with my case, which put me at ease. NEVER was there a point where I felt stressed with Allan handling my case. My case settled outside of court with very favorable results. Allan and his staff treated me with a level of kindness and professionalism that all businesses should aim to provide. I Highly Recommended Allan Siegel!!!

I was badly injured when struck by a car while crossing with the right of way in DC. Seeing they were highly rated in the Washingtonian magazine, I contacted the Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel firm the following day after I got home from the hospital. They reached back out to me very quickly and had me in their office the next day. This helped greatly in my recovery, as they handled all the legal aspects with all of the different groups involved. I did not have to stress over the details I did not understand how to navigate. I was able to focus on getting better. If you have been injured, I would not hesitate to contact this firm. You will only be helping yourself.

I had a really great experience with this firm from beginning to end. My case was handled carefully. Mr. Chatman kept me abreast of each step and every hurdle. The only things that were required of me was to heal and be patient. The atmosphere of this office was warm and inviting. Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarat & Siegel...YOU GUYS ROCK!!

We contacted the law firm because I was hit by a car and Mr. Chatman came to our house on a Sunday. They were very concerned about my health and well-being and recommended me to a clinic to make sure I would be O.K before discussing the case. They were very professional and patient through the whole process especially given the difficulties in my case (very high hospital bill, insurance issues...). In the end, we were very happy with our settlement. We highly recommend this firm.

A car accident in December of 2010 landed me in the hands of Allan Siegel, after the insurance company of the responsible party refused to settle and my originating attorney whom I had total confidence in, was not able to represent me in VA. He assured me that he was placing me in good and capable hands. To this day, I am in awe of Allan Siegel and the phenomenal job he did, in not just handling my case but settling it out of court with positive results. He is an awesome attorney and cares about the welfare of his clients. He has a dynamic personality as well. If ever in a battle and in need of the Calvary.....Allan Siegel is your man.

Last year Cheyne Johnston's life was forever changed when he suffered a traumatic brain injury in a motorcycle accident. The business owner and father of two young children now lives with his mother, Karen Macbeth, who provides around the clock care for her son, but the Macbeth and Johnston families have been inspired by their journey to give back to others suffering from TBI's. The family and Jackson Browne are hosting a benefit concert that will launch the Cheyne C. Johnston Foundation for Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery & Education. They hope the foundation will help provide resources and support to TBI sufferers and their families. #TBI #motorcycle

Traumatic brain injuries can have devastating effects on children especially as they struggle to keep up and behave in school. BrainlineKids just released a new article to help with children's behavioral challenges in the classroom. The strategies developed by The Center on Brain Injury Research and Training at the University of Oregon can help both parents and teachers work with students to manage the impulse control and aggression issues that often accompany a TBI. Check out the link below to learn more about this valuable resource. #TBI #Brainline

Teachers can create intervention strategies for kids with TBI to address common situations in school that result in challenges before they emerge.

The American Association for Justice recently helped shine the spotlight on banks who repossessed servicemembers' vehicles in direct violation of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. These companies told military family members that they would be arrested if they refused to hand over the keys. However, these companies could not lawfully repossess a servicemember's vehicle without a court order, which in many circumstances they did not have. The servicemembers were then blocked from the civil justice system and forced into arbitration due to the terms of their contracts. These banks have found a way to violate the law without being held accountable. #‎forcedarbitration #AAJ

In the world of sports, many are calling for the NCAA to move the Final Four tournament out of the state of Indiana after the Religious Freedom Restoration Act was signed last Thursday by Governor Mike Pence. Former NBA player Charles Barkley says, “discrimination in any form is unacceptable to me. As long as anti-gay legislation exists in any state, I strongly believe big events such as the Final Four and Super Bowl should not be held in those states' cities.” CSCS agrees with Mr. Barkley that discrimination of any form against anyone is unacceptable. We have fought for our clients' freedom to privacy, freedom to express sexual identity, and freedom from sexual harassment among many other issues over the past four decades. Do you think this law should be struck down? Please weigh in below. #RFRA #discrimination

The NCAA has made no indication it plans to move this year's tournament, but has said the law could affect future plans.
