Empire Insurance Services LLC was formed in July 2018, as we continue to grow and expand past our former name Siiss Family Insurance, which was officially formed in 2012. Michael Siiss started his Insurance career in 1999 at very successful agency in Scotia, NY, where he worked with his now business partner, Tamara DePaolo. He gathered an immense amount of knowledge, and after extensive research Michael opened his first office in Schenectady, NY. In May 2015, Michael partnered with Tamara DePaolo, who has been in the insurance industry since 1995, and together they opened a second location in Liberty, NY. Thank you for taking the time to explore what we might be able to do for you and your family! We look forward to servicing all your insurance needs!
