Jonathan Siegel, the founding partner of Siegel LeWitter Malkani has spent over thirty years representing employees. His experience runs the full range of cases from individual jury trials to class actions to arbitration and administrative hearings. Jonathan has enjoyed outstanding success in all forums, while building an enviable reputation as a formidable advocate, but one whose word can be trusted.

Jonathan has successfully tried individual cases to juries, judges and arbitrators. He has received substantial six and seven figure jury awards in discrimination cases related to age (Tetzchner v. Unitank - Contra Costa), pregnancy (Byer v. Haider - San Francisco) and sexual harassment (Rogers v. ARINC - Alameda). He has achieved similar awards in arbitration hearings for employment fraud, wrongful termination and pregnancy discrimination. He recently obtained a substantial confidential settlement for a whistleblower in the health care industry.

Jonathan has also obtained outstanding results as lead counsel in class action litigation of wage and hour cases. He is unique among employment lawyers in also maintaining an active practice representing labor organizations. This has enabled him to sharpen his litigation and negotiation skills, to the benefit of all of his clients, through conducting several hundred arbitration and administrative hearings and helping to resolve dozens of collective bargaining agreements. In 2011, he succeeded in obtaining a rerun of the largest private sector union election in over fifty years due to unlawful election conduct, after a twenty-three day trial before the National Labor Relations Board.
