2. What is 
something most people do not realize about the company? 
 
We are known for Fire/Water restoration but we assist residential and commercial customers in many ways. Preventative duct / dryer vent cleaning, carpet cleaning and mold remediation are a large part of our business. Our area is surrounded by water with humid temperatures which is a perfect environment for mold growth. The negative health effects associated with mold leave people looking for help, and we can assist there as well. Our owner Diane Whittles prides herself on training/certifying all employees. Our teams that are in the field are the best in the area and that is obvious by the positive reviews the receive on a daily basis.

3. How large is the company? 
 
We are a locally/women owned small business with around 22 employees.  We have been in business for over 42 years!
 
4. What is one piece of advice you can give, based on your insight into your industry and the problems you solve for your clients? 
 
 
PREPARE- preparation is the key to minimizing damages.  If you are effected by fire, water or mold damage calling the experts immediately gives you the best chance at restoring your home, office and contents.  Our trained professionals are able to reduce your stress and get you back in operation quickly. "Like it never even happened."

5. What do you get the most out of being a Partnership member?

 DID YOU KNOW?? Some FUN FACTS about SIEGELLAW!

1. You will have to watch plenty of movies to figure out what Gayle's job was before she joined forces with Harry in his firm.

2. Harry still corresponds by facebook with his very famous babysitter- she was a popular rockstar in the 80"s and still does tours. Hint: Her songs are surprisingly fit for a family law firm!!!!!

3. Our office has a running joke about quizzing Partner Michael Milstein about pop or rap music, movies, and current events because he is still living in the 1950's- he is only in his early 30's! When his three kids get older, hopefully his test scores will improve:)

4. How many Family Law lawyers do you know who have played the french horn for a United States President?
