    • I recommend Marc Selden.
    • I hired Marc 1-3 years ago.
    • Marc handled my Estate Planning matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Marc assisted me to create a comprehensive estate and asset protection plan for my family. Through every step of the way, Marc and his staff both educated and guided me to make intelligent choices based upon the needs of my family and my personal preferences. It is clear that Marc has not only dedicated vast amounts of time to becoming an expert in his practice area, but also has committed himself to staying abreast of current trends in the ever-shifting seas of estate tax law and asset protection. If you are looking for a "hands-on" attorney to counsel you on a personal level, Marc is your guy. I would highly recommend him.

    • Marc handled my Trusts matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I've known Marc for a few years. He was referred to me by a friend. We have a child with special needs that we were concerned about planning for his future. When my wife and I met with Marc the first time, I knew right away he was a pro in his field. He was very insightful, considerate, and supportive. Marc presented us with a well-thought out plan for our children. I couldnt've feel more comfortable anywhere else. I have and will continue to refer people to Marc because I feel confident that he always has me and my family's best interest at hand.

    • I recommend Marc Selden.
    • I hired Marc more than 3 years ago.
    • Marc handled my Estate Planning matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    As a financial professional I had met Marc through a work colleague. I was initially impressed by his presentation and sincerity. I started referring clients to him where I felt he would be a good match personality wise. I had heard very positive feedback from my clients that went forward with Marc for estate planning. When my wife and I had our baby I felt it was important to go through the process myself with Marc. Throughout our meetings Marc did a great job conveying how we should structure our estate plan and made it easy and straight forward to understand. If you are looking to protect your family and assets Marc will do a solid job.

    From the instant I met with Marc I knew I was in good hands. His knowledge of the law and his ability to explain all options available to me were priceless. I never felt rushed or overwhelmed. He was always available to talk things through, revise if need be and offer rational informed advise.

    Marc is a fantastic attorney. In addition to being brilliantly versed in estate planning law, he is also dedicated and hard-working. He assisted my family during a very difficult time with genuineness and compassion. I could not recommend a better lawyer.

    Mr. Selden responds was fast and he even responded on the weekend. This was a plus.

    However, after waiting all weekend to speak to him on a Monday about creating a trust agreement, he only told me to set up an appointment where he would charge me $500 for a consultation. Over the phone he suggested that I create an LLP and transfer the real property into the LLP before transferring it into the trust. This is after he was informed that the real property was valued under $5 Million and the Federal government gave a $5 Million gift exemption and NY had NO Gift tax. Thus, the property could be transferred directly into the trust without any tax liability.

    I found him a little combative and defensive.

      Lawyer Comment:

      I was disheartened to learn that the poster was dissatisfied with our 5 minute telephone call. I told the poster that I would need to be retained in order to give legal advice. There was no attorney/client relationship established. There are many estate and gift tax and non-tax reasons to suggest LLPs or LLCs for a $5 million estate, as the poster would have learned during a consultation. I object to the negative review in that we did not have an attorney-client relationship, we only spoke for 5 minutes and this review is not fair - I DID NOT HANDLE HIS TRUSTS MATTER. His assertion that I handled his Trusts matter is false.
