We were in search of legal advice on some specific immigration issues for relatives. Mr. Wasserstrum and his staff were very helpful and efficient. We received the information that we needed.
Seymour was a very nice man when I first met him. He remained nice throughout the whole process....however after the first meeting you only deal with his staff and rarely get to see him. The level of incompetence and the blatant disregard to keep you informed, none returning of phone calls, not making good on things that were promised, was mind blowing. I paid my money pretty quickly and was then taken to some paralegal who lost my file which delayed my filing for a month an a half. In the meantime wages were still being garnished, and the state of NJ was about to take my return until I called the office and flipped out. I found myself always having to call them because nothing was ever done right and I would hardly ever get returned phone calls. I even filed an ethical complaint on them but of course they didn't find an ethical problem because incompetence is not an ethical issue. The whole experience was a huge mess and there were others issues that came up...my best guess is that there are too many people working on your case who don't communicate. He had to have his senior paralegal quickly type up n file my case. This paralegal seemed to be the only competent one in the bunch. Hopefully this was just a fluke with my case but I'd never use them again if I were to ever need this type of legal guidance again...too many mess ups
very professtional, easy to talk too, respondes to your question in less then 24 hours, I found him easy to work with as this was a hard item for me to complete.
Mr. Wassersturm was honest, upfront , and clear in what service he would provide for me and my husband. He also made clear what steps were expected of us with no hidden agenda. I trust him with my legal affairs.
I am the plaintiff in a lawsuit stemming from a fraudulant act committed by my previous employer. I was not getting the answers nor the time I needed from the lawyer I had hired, so I called Seymour Wasserstrum. "Sy" spent over an hour on the phone with me going over my case., He gave me a detailed list of the questions I needed to ask my attorney as well as a list of items that I should have him request from the defendant. This was invaluable because it gave me a sense of confidence that I now had someone who was looking out for me as well as overseeing what my other attorney was doing.
I CALLED FROM SOUTH DAKOTA LOOKING FOR A LAWYER TO HELP ME IN A CRIMINAL MATTER, AND BY LUCK I SAW MR. WASSERSTRUM'S ADVERTISMENT AND I CALLED... NOT KNOWING THAT I WOULD GET SUCH AN HONEST, QUICK, INFORMED LAWYER RIGHT OFF THE BAT!! I HAVE DEALT WITH MANY LAWYERS IN MY LIFETIME AND WISH I HAD MET HIM YEARS AGO. PLEASE CALL MR. WASSERSTRUM BEFORE YOU CALL ANY OTHER LAWYER AND SEE FOR YOURSELF! HIGHLY
Was very knowledgeable, and helped me with advice. Gave me all of the best options to work with. Mr Wasserstrum Is a very fine person to work with and I might say is very trustworthy. He is there when you need him any time of the day.
Mildred lost my personal information twice. They recorded the wrong information and when going to court, totaly wasnt prepared. Upon questioning the squire about what had occured in court, Andrew replied, "we are doing you a favor trying to help you!" No Andrew! You r wrong we are paying you to help us. We hired you to represent us! Not to give us lame excuses why your paralegal Neglected to complete our paperwork completely. Its just seems that no one has a clue whats going on in that office. My favorite is when they say they will call you back. If you find their ad online,driving by of yellow pages. Do not chose them. You will be disappointed.
It's not easy getting to the point where you're considering filing for bankruptcy, but Mr. Wasserstrum was VERY helpful and all of his staff were courteous as well as helpful. He helped outline the necessary steps to take and assigned a specific lawyer to us so that everything went smoothly. Finally the incessant calls from the debt collectors have stopped! Don't hesitate to contact him if you need some advice on how to handle your overwhelming debts. I highly recommend Mr. Wasserstrum.
