A Helpful and Client-Friendly Consultation
With the increasingly predatory behaviors of insurance companies in the wake of wholesale deregulation, knowledgeable advocates like Mr. Seitelman are invaluable in negotiating the bureaucratic morass of policy exclusions and arbitrary cancellations. In our case involving the latter, Mr. Seitelman provided clear advice as to what legal steps were worth taking and how we might go about obtaining coverage after losing our policy due to a legitimate claim. We're very grateful for his help and appreciate the prompt and friendly communication we had with Mr Seitelman, Sherry and his staff. Having found him via the NY State Bar Association Legal Referral Service, we also wholeheartedly recommend them as a productive starting point in all legal matters.

Client
My lawyer helped me get a settlement for an accident case Which I was at no fault, but I sustained damages to my car and pain resulting in having to get physical therapy. Mark And his team was on top of everything to make sure I had no stress besides just sending the documents that I needed, and that was all

Reliable, efficient & dependable firm!
I was referred to Mark E Seitleman's office by another firm after a car accident and I have no regrets working with them on my case. They were transparent regarding the limitations of my case and still committed the time and resources to fight on my behalf, as though I was one of their stronger cases. I was met with respect, courtesy, patience and understanding throughout all interactions with the MSLO team and staff both in person and on the phone. Without a doubt, I vouch for their professionalism. I was given the time of day whether I walked in or made an appointment (but, please, call first / ahead) and my concerns were always noted and assuaged. Each time I left Mark Seitelman's office, I felt heard. The office itself is bright and clean. The paralegal team is knowledgeable, smart, dedicated and thorough as well. Communication was open, clear and honest throughout. I was updated as needed. Moreover, my case was settled in less than a year and for more than anticipated. I found them also very quick and above board with the disbursement of funds and have no ill feelings about sharing with them for the work they did on my behalf. I consider myself a tougher person to deal with, being very thorough and well-read. As a result it is often difficult for me to find organizations that I could let my guard down around. However, with Mr Seitleman and his team, it was very easy for me. I highly recommend them for your car accident, personal injury claims.

Freed up my time.
I hired Mark to represent me in a personal injury claim against my company. I did not understand the process or wanted to because I needed to run my business without all the distractions. He walked me through the deposition and represented my company in the depositions of other witnesses. Took care of all the paperwork and explained what was going on the entire way through the process. I hope I wouldn’t have to hire him again but if I was in need of a lawyer again he would be my first call.

Complicated Case
Mark Seitelman and his staff were extremely helpful in working on my case which was very complicated. I had two accidents with overlapping injuries. Mr. Seitelman worked meticulously to identify injuries that were exacerbated as well as new. His staff was a pleasure to work with. They are very professional and efficient. All of my questions were answered, my calls were always returned in a timely manner. They all worked together to secure a nice settlement for me and my family.

Honest, Communicative & Knowledgable
Mark, and everyone with whom I dealt at his firm, are amazing. They were in constant contact with me throughout my case, helped organize medical treatment and were able to come to a quick and very favorable settlement. I cannot speak more highly of him as an attorney and a person. Mark helped me more than I could ever have imagined.

The ONLY personal injury attorney you should ever call
Mark Seitelman is an attorney that cares about his clients and their cases at a level I have never experienced. I felt hand-held throughout the process by Mark. His years of experience knowledge about personal injury law and the personal attention he gives to his clients is stellar. It is a rare quality for a law firm this busy to make sure to give such personal service and availability to their clients. I always had an open line of communication both to the amazing attorney MirsadeBajraktarevic who was handling my case along with Mark. All it took was a phone call to either of my attorneys and Mark or Marside was able to take the call immediately or was in touch within a day- personally. I can't remcommend this firm enough for their caring way of handling a case that was so difficult for me to be involved in.

Satisfied with the outcome
After having a bad car accident in Manhattan in 2019 I didn’t know where to turn to for help. I hired a local lawyer who did not do much for me and my case during a matter of almost 2 years. Thankfully my case was handed over to Mr. Seitelman’s law office. My attorney was in constant communication with me and explained things to me if I didn’t understand what exactly was happening with my case. I felt taken care of at all times and trusted my attorney 100%. I could not be more grateful for this law office and everything they have done for me.
