Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C.’s three active Partners – Ira Sherman, Joseph Cammarata, and Allan M. Siegel – have been voted by their peers to the 2018 “Top Lawyers” list by Washingtonian magazine. At least one attorney from the firm has been selected to this prestigious list every year since 1997. However, this is the first year that all three partners have been selected in the same year.
All three of our Partners were recognized as “Top Lawyers” in Personal Injury.
- Ira Sherman – As Senior and Managing Partner, Ira Sherman has helped CSCS cultivate a reputation as one of the most trusted injury law firms in the DC region. Throughout a career dedicated to ensuring equal justice, Mr. Sherman has been a leader in the local and legal communities, serving as the former President of the Trial Lawyers’ Association of Metropolitan Washington, DC, and a current Board Member of the Brain Injury Association of Washington, DC. He has lectured at seminars sponsored by a number of professional legal organizations and has been selected to the Washington, DC Super Lawyers list each year since 2011.
- Joseph Cammarata – Partner Joseph Cammarata is a dual Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyer who has become nationally known and respected for his success in complex and high profile civil litigation, including a landmark Supreme Court case in which he secured a unanimous decision from the Supreme Court of the United States against a sitting President. In addition to his many leadership roles in legal associations and community-based organizations, Mr. Cammarata has also drafted important legislation to protect youth athletes in DC against the risks of concussions, and is featured frequently as a guest speaker and expert legal analyst by the media.
- Allan M. Siegel – Partner Allan M. Siegel has been included in Washingtonian magazine’s Top Lawyers list for over 10 years. As one of just 3% of U.S. attorneys to be Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the NBTA, Mr. Siegel has helped CSCS clients secure millions of dollars in settlement and trial verdicts. He has been included in the prestigious list of Washington, DC Super Lawyers each year since 2011, formerly served as the President of the Trial Lawyers Association of Washington, DC, and is actively involved with the American Association for Justice, for which he currently acts as the District of Columbia delegate, and is a member of the Brain Injury Litigation and Interstate Trucking Litigation Groups.
We congratulate our Partners on their latest achievement, which continues to solidify their reputation among the most highly regarded personal injury lawyers in Washington, DC. While these awards are to be celebrated, their experience in this field and expertise in civil trial law have done far more than earn them accolades – they have helped our clients and their families secure the justice and compensation they deserved following preventable harms and losses, even when facing off against powerful corporations and insurance companies.
