Prior to forming the firm, Kirk G. Siegel, Esq., practiced real estate, title, and land conservation law for 15 years as a partner at Hanley & Associates in South Paris and Bethel, serving as counsel on complex land transactions from York to Aroostook counties and providing comprehensive counsel and document preparation services to lenders, buyers, and sellers of real estate in Maine.
Kirk represents landowners and non-profit land conservation organizations statewide and in the greater Bethel and Sunday River areas, and provides residential and business clients with comprehensive title search, title insurance, and closing services in Oxford and surrounding counties.
He also is an experienced conservation easement drafter, and in concert with his partner, Attorney Jarrod S. Crockett, advises families and businesses on multi-generational land planning.
Kirk’s work with land trust conservation easements stimulated an interest in the law, a profession chosen by his mother and grandfather. This led to a degree at the University of Maine School of Law, where he was a member of the Law Review and president of the Law & Technology Association.
In his third year, Kirk published an article on property tax exemption in the Maine Law Review and an article on the Endangered Species Act in the Ocean and Coastal Law Journal. Kirk graduated first in his class, summa cum laude, after which he served as law clerk to Justice Robert W. Clifford of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court, gaining in-depth experience in a wide breadth of legal areas.
