Matt presented my position to the Court in an extremely confident manner and, piece-by-piece, dismantled his opponent’s arguments resulting in a favorable verdict for us. 13 years after my initial divorce, I had to return to Queens Family Court to respond to a host of motions by my ex-wife. At first I thought that I could handle the matter myself but ultimately, I made the decision to retain an attorney that would vigorously defend my rights as a father. After meeting three different attorneys, I had the privilege of meeting Matt Seidner. From the initial consultation to our court date, Matt consistently helped me to take emotion out of my decisions and to focus exclusively on the law.Matt Seidner is one of the best family law trial attorneys that I have ever seen and the only attorney that I would consider to defend my rights as a father.
This isn’t just a “law firm”, they are caring, extremely efficient and most important, always available! I would most definitely recommend them for all legal needs. Matthew Seidner has been a great support for me and my son during a very difficult time. He and his staff have worked diligently to set up Medicaid Applications, Supplemental Needs Trust, Disability Application and countless other legal documents for my family.
When I sat with Matt it wasn’t deals and negotiations. He was able to see where I wanted to go, and set a plan on how we could get me there.
I was raising four children on my own for many years. I worked full time and took care of my children to the best of my ability. I received no government financial assistance. However although most would consider my salary decent it was not enough by New York standards to provide for my children solely on my own. I lived with my mother for a few years and then my Aunt and Uncle. I wanted to give my children a home of their own. I wanted to be the only parent.
I had an ex-husband who didn’t pay child support and bullied me. He didn’t provide for these kids at all however I felt he had more jurisdiction then I did.
I wanted to relocate, I wanted to give my children a better life. I wanted them to have a community with lots of resources and opportunities. I wanted to give them a home, something of their own. I needed to reach outside New York , even though it was away from everything we knew. When I had my goals and plan in order I knew I could not take this journey on my own. I am not legally educated. I needed representation that was able to educate me, be honest with me and most of all listen to me.
I went to about five or six free consultations with lawyers in Suffolk and Nassau County. Some told me there was nothing they could do for me and I knew it was because of my income. Then there were some lawyers that could do this if I paid that much or they could do that for that much. We set a plan together and he educated me. Matt was honest with me and he did not sugar coat anything. He gave me the facts to get me from point A to point B. Whether I liked some of things he told me did not matter it was what I needed to know. Matt did not tell me what I wanted to hear, he told me what I needed to hear.
When the entire process was coming to an end and we were about a week away from my ex-husband and I coming to an agreement in court, Matt said to me “as soon as the judge signs these papers you need to make sure you are ready to go.” It was the realization that we did it, that I did it. I broke free from my life going in the same continuous circle and I could not have done it alone.
The last year has been an amazing journey building our lives.. We started off in a very small apartment with air mattresses and paper plates. And now we live in a decent size home that I am able to afford. The kids have stated that they could not have asked for a better way to start life over. We have constancy and contentment. Visitations are set up and I am now receiving child support regularly. The entire process was as seamless as possible given the situation. I was able to obtain my life back and give my children the childhood they deserve because of the legal representation of Matt Seidner and his team.
The Seidner & Associates staff at all times proved to be responsive, competent, and skilled in their field, knowledgeable with respect to responding to questions, and most importantly, the staff demonstrated a willingness to listen carefully to the need.
I strongly and enthusiastically endorse The Seidner & Associates, PC Attorneys at Law . I can truly say that the help Matthew Seidner and his team give to my friend Mr. Williams was priceless. In consulting with Mr. Seidner by mail and phone at the beginning, we were able to freely and openly communicate with his team. This made us the client feel very comfortable and secure under the unique circumstances that they were capable to help with our case.
He was always available to take calls or respond to emails within a reasonable timeframe. I can assure you that I will retain his firm if I ever need legal representation. Thank you once again for your assistance in handling my friend Mr. Williams case. As I looked on throughout the nine days of the process, I cannot believe my good fortune in finding you to represent him. You possess all of the assets necessary for success—honor, dignity, and sincerity! A dedication to the task before you.
I could not go to sleep tonight without letting you know how impressive you were in court today. I am still in awe. Thank you for believing in me and recognizing the values of love, commitment and dedication that are inherent in my relentless pursuit to find my kids. It is a leap of faith coupled with grit and determination that I am here to defend my rights to my children. I realize very well that this case is engaging much more time and resources than we would have cared for but I refuse and will not allow money to be a deciding factor on whether I continue or stop. I am prepared to utilize all my savings and sell all my assets if that become necessary to fight for my children. Again I want to compliment you for an excellent job. Despite being grief stricken I enjoy working every step of the way with you. The professionalism and dedication of you and your team is truly remarkable. Please give my kind regards to your team.
