  • 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.
