Biographical Details

Gary Siegel was born in St. Louis in 1960.
He attended Ladue schools from K-12 and graduated from Horton Watkins (Ladue) High School in 1978.

In 1982, Gary graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in journalism from NU’s distinguished Medill School of Journalism. He received a Recognition of Excellence from the Chicago Advertising Club in 1981 for his work at Northwestern.

Gary graduated from Washington University’s School of Law in 1985. In his senior year, he was Second Place Winner in the National Client Counseling Competition. During law school, Gary worked for two years at the law offices of Thomas R. Green.

After passing the bar, Gary worked for George (Buzz) Westfall and then Bob McCulloch of the St. Louis County Office of the Prosecuting Attorney from 1986-1991. By the time Gary was 30 years of age, he already had picked more than thirty juries.

Since 1991, Gary has practiced in the private sector. In addition to trying hundreds of civil cases, he has gained valuable experience in a wide variety of subjects, serving as a condemnation commissioner for St. Louis County Circuit Court, prosecuting for the City of Creve Coeur and representing the Board of Healing Arts for the State of Missouri.

Probably the greatest honor he has received in the legal profession is his appointment by the Supreme Court for the State of Missouri to serve the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel on Region X Disciplinary Committee. The OCDC Disciplinary Committee investigates complaints by the public and recommends discipline actions against attorneys. In 2009, Gary was appointed Chairperson of the OCDC Disciplinary Committee, Region X, Division II.

Gary takes great pride in saving his client’s money and by finding solutions that avoid litigation. But if a trial is necessary, Gary represents his clients with zeal.
