Frederic J. Siegel has been interviewed on PIX 11 regarding the divorce-related murder-suicide of the Friedlander family in Cross River New York.

Frederic Siegel describes divorce in ten words, "It turns normal people into despicable people that do crazy things."

Siegel should know. The Stamford based attorney is one of the area's most prominent family law attorneys in the area having handled more than 2,500 divorces. According to Siegel, "It is very difficult in most jurisdictions to get someone out of the house unless there is violence."

When asked as to the reason, Siegel's response, "Because courts are reluctant to put someone out of their home unless there is real fear of violence to the children or the other spouse."
