About Us

King & Siegel LLP is a group of dynamic advocates for employees and civil rights plaintiffs. In the four years since the firm was founded, we have recovered over $45 million on behalf of wronged employees. Our attorneys graduated with honors from top law schools and most have been recognized as Rising Stars in the field of employment litigation by Super Lawyers. We are winning a hard-fought reputation as a premier employment law firm and are devoted to practicing at the pinnacle of our field.

Of all our accomplishments, we are most proud of the collaborative, supportive workplace culture we have created. Our employees care about our clients and our work but also support each other and every employee’s personal and career development.

Currently, we are looking to add one to two Associate Attorneys to support our whistleblower and pregnancy discrimination practices, which have grown rapidly.
