There is NO ONE better
There is NO ONE better than Steve Seiden. He took my case over from a previous attorney who was terrible. The difference between the two attorney's was INSANE. Steve comforted me, assured me we would get through all of the little hurdles and that we did! My case was a bit of a roller coaster for me, and he made sure he was with me 100% of the way. If you need an attorney, you NEED Steve. I promise you, he will never steer you wrong!

Defines the word Expert
Gentleman, totally masterful in the field of personal injury, been around long enough to know how to get a case handled, settled or tried in the shortest amount of time it can with the best results for the client. Is not stingy with his time. Rare qualities for a lawyer.

Excellent attorney!
I hired Mr. Seiden to be my attorney, after suffering a serious injury as a result of a car accident. Throughout the process, he was extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and professional. He guided me through every step with complete honesty and transparency which gave me complete confidence in him. Mr Seiden was consistently available to answer any and all of my questions. When he wasn't in the office, his secretary reached out to him to give me a call back which was always in a timely fashion. ( His secretaries are also lovely to interact with and always very helpful and accommodating). Mr Seiden has been extremely accessible and helpful, and afforded me excellent, honest guidance while navigating through what would have been a very difficult process for me. Mr Seiden is in my opinion, an excellent lawyer in all aspects of the profession. I highly recommend him.

I was recommended to Steve Seiden by my Mother. He handled her accident case and she was extremely pleased. She lived the last few years of her life very comfortable with the settlement he got for her. Steve handled my case as if it was the only case he had in his office. He was very attentive and kept me informed along the way. Steve is a combination of a Professional and a "Regular Guy". He can talk business with you and sports the next. I was very pleased with Steve Seiden and wouldn't hesitate to call upon him again if I ever needed help.

Personal injury Attorney | May 19
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. He is extremely knowledgeable and tenacious. If he thinks the law is on his side, he will never let go. He will take it up to an appellate court based on principle just because he wants to see justice prevail. And best of all, He wins! He has made new law and is diligent in reading all the cases which are decided on an almost daily basis. He stays on top of the law."
