We are proud to announce that Miller Barondess partners Amnon Siegel and Skip Miller have been recognized in Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2021 special supplement honoring the most influential litigators and trial attorneys in Los Angeles. The supplement recognizes attorneys who go to the proverbial mat to fight for their clients before judges and juries – the litigator. These are the lawyers you want in your corner in court.
Amnon Siegel: Amnon Siegel is an experienced trial attorney with significant victories for plaintiffs and defendants in jury trials, bench trials and arbitrations. Siegel’s practice focuses on complex civil litigation matters in the automotive, entertainment, technology, real estate, consumer products and financial services industries. In 2017, Siegel obtained one of the top 10 verdicts in the country, a $256 million verdict against Nissan. Siegel is committed to helping the community during the uncertain and difficult times caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past year, he has successfully represented the County of Los Angeles against numerous lawsuits challenging the enforcement of emergency health orders, such as contact-tracing, stay-at-home orders, and orders restricting activities to reduce the spread of the virus. For example, Siegel successfully represented LA County against a Beverly Hills sushi restaurant after the county issued its COVID-19 contact-tracing order; and also obtained a preliminary injunction against a mega-church defying indoor service restrictions.
Skip Miller: With over 40 years of experience, Skip Miller is an accomplished litigator and trial lawyer. A major client for Miller and the firm is the County of Los Angeles and its Board of Supervisors. In conjunction with County Counsel, Miller handled the County’s enforcement of Governor Newsom’s emergency health orders amid COVID-19. He secured injunctions against cities attempting to prevent “Project Roomkey,” Newsom’s $150 million program to house homeless. He also led negotiations in a historic agreement in federal court between the County and City of Los Angeles to shelter homeless people living in freeway encampments. Miller currently represents the County in litigation regarding photographs taken following the tragic helicopter crash that killed nine individuals, including Kobe Bryant and his daughter.
