One of the few professionals in the world who is both a licensed physician and a nationally recognized trial attorney, Mr. Ken Sigelman is uniquely qualified to help you achieve justice and obtain fair compensation for your child’s birth injury. With nearly 20 years’ experience handling cerebral palsy and other birth injury cases, he has the legal expertise, medical experience, and determination to help you win your case.

Mr. Sigelman’s formal education is second to none. As he completed his undergraduate degree, Mr. Sigelman decided to pursue both of his passions—law and medicine. He enrolled at and graduated in 1976 with honors from the University of Florida College of Law, after which he obtained a one-year clerkship with Justice James C. Adkins and Arthur J. England of the Florida Supreme Court. In 1977, Mr. Sigelman entered the University of Miami School of Medicine, earning his Doctorate of Medicine degree in 1981. He passed the California Bar exam while interning at St. Mary’s Hospital in San Francisco and then began practicing law in March 1983.

Mr. Sigelman’s legal expertise has not gone unnoticed. In 1998, he received the Outstanding Trial Lawyer award from the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego and has been elected to membership in the highly selective American Board of Trial Advocates, an organization whose membership is limited to lawyers who have completed at least 20 jury trials. In addition, he is a fellow of the American College of Legal Medicine. Mr. Sigelman is also the recipient of numerous awards from the Consumer Attorneys of California for his efforts and has been consulted by the media for his thoughts on victims of medical negligence.

A member of many reputable professional organizations, Mr. Sigelman has served as chair of the Medical Malpractice Committee of the Consumer Attorneys of California. This leadership position has given him an opportunity to testify many times before the California State Legislature on behalf of victims of medical malpractice and HMO abuse, specifically including catastrophically injured children.

A gifted speaker and teacher, Mr. Sigelman has lectured extensively at legal seminars, where he has taught other attorneys how to handle all phases of medical malpractice litigation, including cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, and other birth injury cases.

While Ken Sigelman is licensed to practice law in California and Florida, and before the United States Supreme Court, he has handled cases in numerous other states with the permission of the court and, where appropriate, the association of local counsel.

If your loved one has suffered a birth injury at the hand of a negligent professional, we can help. Please contact Kenneth M. Sigelman & Associates today.
