For decades, Phil Sieff has battled for justice when wrongdoers have caused serious injury or death. His extensive experience includes a number of complex and high profile cases, including serving as lead co-counsel of the I-35W Consortium, a group of 17 law firms that provided legal services to over 100 collapse victims. The consortium recovered more than $77 million for survivors and those who lost loved ones in the bridge collapse. Sieff’s other work includes recovering $15.4 million for the victim of an industrial accident and representing the families of two men killed by a methadone-impaired driver. Sieff is regularly recognized for his professional accomplishments, including being named “Attorney of the Year” by Minnesota Lawyer and a “Minnesota Super Lawyer” by Super Lawyers every year for the past twenty years.
