About Seymour

Learn Seymour’s areas of practice.

I was born in Augsburg, Germany on June 25, 1948, the only child of Sam and Clara Wasserstrum, who lost virtually their entire families in the holocaust. My parents came to the United States in 1949 and settled in New York, where my father was fortunate enough to obtain an excellent job opportunity, working for a leather bag manufacturer.

In the early 1950's, my mother's only sister, Esther, and her husband, Solomon, bought a chicken farm in Vineland. My father, believing that my mother certainly wanted to be as close to Esther as possible, decided to leave New York. Knowing how much my mother loved surprises, my father (knowing nothing about chickens) decided to buy a chicken farm in Vineland. Imagine my mother's surprise when my father told her that the family would be leaving the big city, where they had made so many friends, for the opportunity to work with lovely fowl, in modern 50's style chicken coops, where the manure smelled like perfume. Actually, at this point I believe my father really thought that the chickens would be doing all of the work.

Vineland welcomed our family in 1953, and I received a terrific education, graduating second in my high school class in 1966. I had to give the salutatorian speech in front of about 2000 people, and although I was scared to death, I pulled it off, pretty much flawlessly, and even surprised myself at how well it went.

Helpful , knowledgeable, and assuring
I cannot thank Seymour Wasserstrum and team enough. At the time of need , I was a single parent and could not see my way out of debt . I lived in fear and worry about how I was going to pay my bills ,car loan , mortgage, electric , school needs for child , etc. One call to the office gave me the hope that it was possible to rise above and past my debt . I was able to make payments towards my fees as well . Immediately after bankruptcy I was able to begin rebuilding my credit. Less than two years later , I bought a home with no other debts . The whole experience was stress-free and simple . I am truly grateful ! Highly recommend.

Great lawyer
I have no words to thank Mr. Seymour for all the help he has given my family, first with a bankrupcy case of my son and then he helped me by contacting me to one of his collegues who solved a 34 year old case reagarding my husband. I would recommend Seymour with no doubt. Mr. Seymour is more than a lawyer he becomes a friend and helps you get solutions. We will forever be thankful.

Wonderful Person and Attorney!
I contacted Attorney Wasserstrum for a consult concerning a contract matter. He went above and beyond my expectations by making a phone call that very same day on my behalf. He and his staff are very professional, knowledgeable, personable and willing to help during a stressful time. I never thought that attorneys of this caliber still existed. I cannot thank he and his staff enough and would advise anyone with a legal matter to call on Attorney Seymour Wasserstrum. You will not be disappointed.

Excellent Attorney
When I first came to the office I was a little hesitant and scared. After speaking with Mr Wasserstrum, I felt relieved. I was in a comfort zone dealing with this Attorney. All my unanswered questions were answered. I was So relieved knowing that my life would be back on track soon. Mr Wasserstrum explained to me that things happens, and that I was not in this all by myself. All paperwork was taken care of on my part and the Attorneys office in a timely matter. Next thing I know, I received my court date and that was it.. I exhaled. Thank you to the Attorney’s office of Seymour and Wasserstrum for your kind and generous hospitality through the whole ordeal. Thank you,

Extraordinary Lawyer
I will begin by stating the my attorney Seymour Wasserstrum is the best attorney I have ever met. I am presently unemployed and searching for employment. Unable to make my credit cards payments , Presently on unemployment and have not as yet found a job. I prayed and asked for guidance. In my desperation and getting constant calls from my creditors . A higher power was at work when I decided to call my Attorney Seymour whom , I have not spoken or seen in over 2 years. My prayers were answered. I called the law office and got an appointment to see Seymour immediately. As usual he called me immediately adjusted his schedule and saw me immediately. After explaining my concerns anxiety He offered me great advised and in addition offered to send letters to my creditors and help me resolve my current situation with creditors without even charging me a attorney or office fee. How amazing is that. No attorney in today world has that type of compassion and understanding. I will always keep him as my attorney and recommend him to all . Thank you Seymour.

Very Informative
I have hired Seymour Wasserstrum to handle my business affairs and I have referred him to my friends and family. I find him knowledgeable and easy to talk to on the phone and he gives free consultations prior to hiring him. After seeking him out because I worked with him through the title insurance company I worked for, I called him for my personal matters and I have hired him twice.

Seymour is an outstanding attorney
Seymour is the most trustworthy, committed attorney, he helped me with legal issues others felt there's no resolution to, Seymour found a way and got them done. He takes the time to make sure you completely understand what to expect and gets results. Seymour's an outstanding attorney very informed in all aspects of the law. I appreciate all the help he's given me through the years not just as an attorney but as a person he's great in every way.

A very friendly and capable law firm
Over many decades in business I have interacted with dozens of attorneys. I must say that none have impressed me more than Seymour Wasserstrum and his friendly staff. Seymour always answered my questions on a timely basis. When requested, he made himself available for a personal appointment. My wife and myself are always treated lIke family when we travel to Vineland for an appointment. I can highly recommend the Wasserstrum law firm to anyone needing the highest caliber of legal assistance.

Quality, caring person and excellent attorney
When looking for an attorney, it can be overwhelming and critical for the outcome of the case. When I was first referred to Seymour in 2013, I was left in a terrible situation as a result of getting out of a very unhealthy and abusive marriage. I needed to file bankruptcy, try to save my home, and get my life back in order for myself and my children. Seymour and his team helped me through this giving me endless time and treating me with utmost care and respect. Today I am still working with Seymour and find great comfort to know that I can trust him and that he is only a call away. That money cannot buy in these times we live in. I recommend him to everyone and I thank him for all he does.
