In 2014, I was hit by a car while crossing the street and suffered a broken arm and leg, among other things. Due to the severity of my injuries, I underwent several surgical procedures and endured months of rehabilitation. As a lawyer myself (and recognizing that he who represents himself has a fool for a client) I knew I would need competent, aggressive counsel to represent my interests. Familiar with Joe Cammarata’s reputation as a zealous advocate, I contacted Chakin, Sherman, Cammarata and Siegel within days of the accident. The very same day I contacted him, Joe came to the hospital to meet with me. From the moment I retained them, Joe and the firm took care of all my legal needs. Not only did they deal with the attorneys and insurance company on the other side of my case (which was to be expected), Joe and Eric McConnell successfully navigated through several issues I encountered with my own health and auto insurance companies. This allowed me to focus on my recovery and ultimately get back to work and the daily life I enjoyed before the accident, without the added stress of dealing with the legal wrangling involved in pursuing my personal injury claim. Initially concerned about a contentious, protracted legal battle, as a result of Joe’s skilled advocacy, we were able to amicably settle my case within just a few months of filing the lawsuit. This firm had my back throughout a very stressful period in my life. You could not ask for a better group of people in your corner than CSCS. In the event you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney, I highly recommend this law firm. Robert

Was referred to them by another attorney after I was in a bike accident when I was hit by a cab. I was initially reluctant to call a lawyer after the accident but my brother, an attorney, told me it was the right thing to do and there was no harm that could come from it. It was good advice. Allan Siegel handled my case -- honest, transparent and straightforward the whole way through. The firm got me top-flight medical care, Allan fought hard with a recalcitrant insurance company (State Farm) and ultimately we settled for a fair figure. It was more than two years from the time of the accident to settlement, but I felt like I had a very strong ally and am thankful for their work.

I would highly recommend Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. I contacted the firm via e-mail for an initial consultation. The office had already closed for the evening and I anticipated a call the next day. Mr. Siegel received my initial online request and he returned my call the same evening. Mr. Siegel's call made a true difference to me and I appreciate the time he took out of his evening to hear about my incident. This firm truly seeks to help clients in their time of need and I would to thank you again for all of your efforts.

If you're looking for a quick settlement, want to work primarily with paralegals/legal assistants or enjoy always to having to call just to receive an update...then, this firm IS NOT for you. If however, you are looking for representation that will be a strong advocate for you, is exceedingly knowledgeable, meticulous and exudes exemplary customer service…then, this firm IS for you. As a Client who has recently resolved all legal matters involving a car accident, I wanted to provide feedback on my direct experience. My team was headed by Mr. Sherman who provided phenomenal representation from Claim to Settlement. In addition, I cannot ‘heap’ enough accolades upon the hard work of Rand Chapman as the primary liaison with the insurance companies and medical bills. For over a year, he kept me exceptionally informed of anything and everything involving my claim. Without fail, Mr. Chapman returned all insurance/medical billing calls, did countless negotiations with insurance companies regarding their fees and called me to just provide an update. He was never too busy to answer or return my calls when I had a question. This allowed me to rehabilitate/heal without worrying about the growing medical bills. To be truly succinct, I would highly recommend Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel to anyone that needs legal representation involving a personal injury. Don’t just take my word for it, at a very minimum, do the research and you can see for yourself that this is a well-respected, personable, and more importantly, an effective firm that actually does ‘look-after’ the needs of the Client.

Allan M. Siegel was very responsive to me, as well as thorough, and creative in his advice. He has an amazing ability to engage a client while making you feel comfortable and relaxed. I had a very positive experience each time we met together to discuss my case. His demeanor and engaging personality enabled me to develop a trust and confidence in his ability to achieve the best results for my case. I feel there is no better lawyer who could advise a client. He is a superb lawyer who also worked well with the opposing counsel to achieve the best results for me. I could also see how much the judge respected and admired him. I highly recommend Allan M. Siegel to anyone who is looking to be represented by an ethical, very successful, class act attorney.

I hand -picked Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata and Seigel, based on their online reviews; and it was the best decision I could have made! Mr. Rand Chatman took the time to personally understand my injuries. They also worked diligently to resolve my issues and explained what was available to me; in order to close my case in a timely and manner. I was greeted warmly and dealt with professionally, throughout the entire process. Overall, I was impressed with their personal injury practices and continuous communication with me . Thank you so much, Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata and Seigel.

Without a doubt, the work this firm does is impeccable. They truly are the best in the area. The firm's commitment to ensuring that the client is satisfied with the outcome is rare. I was involved in an unfortunate car accident and the entire time, I knew that my case manager, Mr. Rand Chapman, was rooting for me to ensure that I received the best outcome. I would recommend the firm to anyone without hesitation.

The D.C. Council has unanimously voted to pass the Motor Vehicle Collision Recovery Act, which eliminates contributory negligence in bicycle and pedestrian accidents. The Act has a few more hurdles to overcome, including signing by the Mayor and a congressional review, but we are hopeful that it will soon be enacted into law!  #WABA #contributorynegligence http://www.waba.org/blog/2016/09/contributory-negligence-clears-another-hurdle/

A new study examining the effects of the #recession found that risky drivers tended to stay off the road during that unstable period in our economy. How does this finding support the need for more #driverlesscars on our roadways?

A decision issued by U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit last week has dealt what may be a fatal blow to the government's ability to regulate companies like Facebook, Google, and Apple. A new loophole prevents both the FTC and FCC from regulating things like bogus charges, deceptive advertising, and unfair practices. Click the link below to read the full story. #consumerprotection #regulation https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2016/08/31/how-the-worlds-biggest-tech-companies-could-wriggle-out-of-all-privacy-regulations/
It could leave entire industries effectively unregulated, according to critics.
