What others have said about Hon. Richard J. Siegel



Comment #: IL503
Judge Siegel is a crook, plain and simple. He is so pro-plaintiff it's disgusting! If your home is in foreclosure in Will County, IL, and you are scheduled to appear in front of him, be prepared to lose! I find it totally ironic that a man who was formerly employed as a IL State's Attorney who's focus was fraud, was able to drop $90 K of his own money to become a judge. How did he accumulate so much "side" money in his position? In my case, he told me that I needed to file an appearance against one Plaintiff but not the other.
I tried to file for both plaintiffs, but he said that he only wanted me to file for the one. Then he issued a judgment for foreclosure for the plaintiff that he specifically told me to file. Like I said he's crook. Search the internet and read Ms. L Scheffer's documents that she's submitted.
