2019 Influencers of Law Awards – Attorney Dan Siegel One of Two Honorees in Personal Injury Category
Havertown Personal Injury, Appellate and Ethics Attorney Daniel J. Siegel has been named a 2019 Influencer of the Law by the Philadelphia Inquirer, one of only two honorees in the category. Dan will receive his award Tuesday, March 26th, at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia, PA.
As a winner, Dan Siegel was selected by Inquirer readers and evaluated by an expert panel of judges who felt he shaped, changed, and transformed the legal industry. Dan was one of 54 winners who will be honored at the awards ceremony; he was profiled in a special section of the Sunday Inquirer today, which will reach nearly 1 million readers.
The Inquirer described Dan Siegel’s accomplishments and summarized some of his community service:
“Attorney Dan Siegel’s cases have changed the law, and either preserved or extended the rights of countless persons injured at work, on the job, and in other ways. Dan is a recognized leader in the local, regional, and national legal communities. For example, he is a pioneer in the emerging area of the intersection of technology and legal ethics, and his firm is the first in the nation to offer Technoethics guidance to lawyers. In addition, he is the author of 13 books, including treatises on workers’ compensation, legal ethics, law practice management and efficiency and time management.
“Dan serves the community in many ways. He has served as a Commissioner in Haverford Township since 1988, and is recognized for his success in bringing transparency to the community; his efforts have also led to the Township’s adoption of emerging technologies, and its focused replacement of its aging infrastructure. Among his community efforts, he has been pro bono counsel to the Foundation for Ichthyosis and Related Skin Types for over 20 years.”
The Influencers of the Law program will feature opening remarks by Terry Egger, Publisher and Chief Executive Officer at the Philadelphia Inquirer. The program will also feature a fireside chat with Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.
