Andy grew up on Long Island and his athletic passion in high school was lacrosse where he was his team’s Most Valuable Player. 

He attended Tulane University in New Orleans and a high point there was when his Green Wave team won the Southwest Championship of Lacrosse beating Texas A&M in an exciting come-from-behind victory.

Next stop was Brooklyn Law School. During his studies he worked at a medical malpractice defense firm. There, he quickly realized that defending doctors and hospitals—when, too often, there was no defense—offended his sense of justice.

After graduating, he made the decision to commit himself working for the victims, who through no fault of their own find their lives tragically changed in the blink of an eye by an act of negligence.


Andy litigated his first jury trial the day after he was admitted to the bar and has been in the courtroom ever since. He has litigated to jury verdict multiple cases in his devoted and passionate manner, successfully receiving large jury awards for the life-changing injuries suffered by his clients. He understands that, to be a successful litigator, each trial requires the full devotion of his time and of his dedication of emotions to the client. It has been this formula, together with his passion for all things medical, that has made him such a courtroom success with over $80,000,000 in jury verdicts.

Many of Andy’s courtroom clashes involve compassionately representing courageous survivors of traumatic brain injury on whose behalf he refuses to give up until achieving an outcome fully satisfying to his sense of justice. His trial successes have regularly placed those outcomes among the “Top 100 Verdicts” reported in the state annually. He’s on the Board of Directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, whose mission is “To promote a safer and healthier society, to assure access to the civil justice system by those who are wrongfully injured and to advance representation of the public by ethical, well-trained lawyers.” 

Andy is also on the Board of Directors of the Brain Injury Association of New York State, whose mission is to “minimize brain injury through prevention, and to support, educate and advocate for individuals with brain injuries and their families.”


Andy is the author of The Tug Wyler Mystery Series, a collection of emotionally charged and thought provoking medical-legal thrillers. 

With Suzy’s Case, his debut novel, Andy was able to put a human face on a reality he knows so well from his work life: the intensity of the experience of traumatic brain injury survivors and their families. Suzy’s Case was optioned by CBS Television, was a People.com Best Beach Read, and was a Suspense Magazine Best Book. For more please visit: andysiegel.com
Andy also wrote Second Impact – The Ray Ciancaglini Story. Ray is a former professional boxer and award winning concussion awareness activist who sustained a brain injury in the ring. Andy wrote the novel to educate and protect today’s youth athletes from the harm that can result by “playing through” a concussion. All proceeds from the sale of the book are donated to Ray’s non-profit organization, thesecondimpact.com
