Attorney Sidney Fligel

Helping others is the standard

Attorney Sidney Fligel joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2017 handling personal injury cases and representing clients to recoup the diminished value of their vehicle as a result of the collision that caused their injuries.

He earned his J.D. cum laude from the University of Mississippi School of Law, Oxford, MS, and a B.A. in English from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. During his time in law school, he was Vice Chair of the Moot Court Trial Advocacy Board and subsequently served as an Undergraduate Mock Trial Coach, as well as competing in the National Trial Competition for two years.

Sidney became an attorney because of his strong desire to help others.

“I grew up in a home where helping others was the standard. Both my parents lead by example, using their time and expertise to help those in our community when needed, and that left a lasting impression on me. I chose to become an attorney because I knew I wanted to help those who cannot otherwise help themselves in their pursuit of justice and fairness. It is not only what makes me happy, but what I truly enjoy.”

Sidney is a member of the North Carolina State Bar, Mecklenburg County Bar, the Young Lawyers Division of the Mecklenburg County Bar, the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ), and the National Association of Consumer Advocates.
