At Siegel Law, we focus on one thing and do it with all our hearts: fighting against elder abuse. Our focus is far narrower than many other personal injury lawyers out there, who take on just about any case they can find. We believe that our elderly loved ones deserve respect, care, and attention. Those who harm or abuse them are worthy of our scorn and should pay for the hurt they cause.
Meet Travis Siegel
Travis Siegel has almost 20 years handling elder abuse and other cases involving medical injuries. He spent the first five years of his career defending doctors and hospitals in medical malpractice before switching to the plaintiff’s side. He now uses that knowledge and experience to relentlessly pursue compensation for his clients and their families.
Travis Siegel believes in the power of civil claims and actions to bring relief to those impacted by abuse, and to punish abusers for what they do. He has recovered millions of dollars for his clients over the years, but more importantly, he has helped them move forward with their lives in a positive and healthy direction.
100% Focus on Elder Abuse
Most law firms spread their energy on lots of different types of cases, which works well for them. We, on the other hand, feel that a focus on elder abuse keeps us sharp and makes us one of the best teams around when it comes to dealing with such cases. This specific focus is quite rare among attorneys, but we are passionate about defending the elderly, and that’s all our elder abuse lawyers in Orange County do.
In-Depth Knowledge of State and Federal Regulations
There are a lot of laws in place at both the state and federal levels intended to protect the elderly. These laws place restrictions on the types of people who can work at nursing homes and similar facilities, as well as how treatments and care can be provided. It is important to have these rules in place to make sure our loved ones get the care they need and deserve.
When these rules and laws are violated, and someone is harmed, that’s plain wrong. We know the ins and outs of the system. There are state agencies in California to oversee nursing homes, and we understand how to work with them to ensure abusers have no place to run and are made to pay for what they have done.

Afterward, call us and we can talk about your suspicions and what to do.
