Daniel R. Seidman
Dan Seidman works out of Seidman Margulis & Fairman’s Belleville and St. Louis offices, practices in both Illinois and Missouri, and is licensed in state and federal court. He has tried numerous jury trials to winning verdict, and has secured countless favorable results for clients through trial, negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. Prior to joining Seidman Law, Dan externed for the Federal Judge Michael J. Reagan, now chief judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.
Dan was fortunate enough to attend the University of Michigan Law School, where he earned a merit-based scholarship, and graduated with honors. While at Michigan Law School, Dan focused on his trial skills and worked with the ACLU of Michigan, advocating for non-violent parolees whose harsh parole conditions did not allow them to see their loved ones.
Dan worked at Seidman Law during summers in high school. He became interested in following in his father's footsteps as a trial lawyer when he observed his dad, Steve Seidman, win a difficult jury trial for a client whose life had been seriously affected by negligence. Dan grew up in Northern Illinois, but fell in love with St. Louis while attending Washington University in St. Louis. When not working, Dan spends his time with his wife and kids.
