    What Our Clients Are Saying

    • For those of you in commercial real estate (multifamily included) needing a good attorney in Florida for real estate litigation, contract disputes with tenants or others, or you need a mediator/arbitrator, I want to plug my friend Jack Ross of Siegel Hughes Ross & Collins. He has been doing this for over 40 years and has represented a number of my customers over the years. He is very knowledgeable, gives excellent advice, and has had a really good success record among those I know he has done work for. I know we are always looking for good teammates in this crazy business, so I wanted to offer up one.

    • Filing a lawsuit was a particularly difficult and agonizing decision in my situation.  The circumstances also necessitated a prompt filing of the suit.  The Siegel Hughes Ross & Collins Law Firm took the case and met the time limitations.  Every attorney and staff member that worked on this case was personable, compassionate, and professional.  The treatment by the firm was both supportive and respectful through the entire procedure, which lasted more than four years.  I am sincerely grateful for the dedication and professionalism of the firm Siegel Hughes Ross & Collins. They are truly an outstanding legal team.

    • The firm of Siegel Hughes Ross & Collins has represented several companies that I have been affiliated with for over 30 years. The members of the firm are professional, highly competent and very experienced. Jack Ross represented a locally chartered bank where I was Chief Financial Officer in complicated litigation, bankruptcy and contract work for close to 25 years. I found him to be articulate, responsive and importantly he listens to his clients. I felt that he always had the bank’s best interest at heart and he was not reluctant to recommend settlement if he felt it offered the best outcome for the bank. Jack is sensitive to legal costs and was always fair in his fees. When I am asked to recommend a law firm it’s Siegel Hughes Ross & Collins!

    • I wanted to recommend Jack Ross with Siegel Hughes Ross & Collins regarding a Diminished Value case he just won on one of my cars. I hired Jack to represent me in a case where a car I just purchased was negligently damaged by the transport company. It was a highly desirable expensive car that as we all know will now never be worth what it was prior to the damage no matter how well the repair was done. Due to the carrier’s refusal to pay for the diminished value, I had to hire Jack to be compensated for this negligence. Jack was phenomenal to work with. He was thorough, knew the law very well, and once it was presented before the judge, was able to achieve a swift grant from the Judge for 100% of the diminished value we presented. If your high-end car has suffered damage like this and you believe you now have a substantial loss in value (diminished value), Jack is worth the call to see if you have a case.

    • We had the pleasure of working with the firm of Siegel Hughes Ross & Collins on various occasions.  While most might have been run-of-the-mill real estate related litigation, we did encounter a complex situation that required significant expertise, engagement and client advocacy.  Brent Siegel and Charles Hughes were always the best prepared attorneys, displaying consistent professionalism that resulted in favorable outcomes for our organization. I highly recommend them.
