  • Throughout the whole process I felt confident that I choose the right attorney. Matthew S.

My intention was to pursue an amicable divorce and Matthew was clear in his respect and support of that intent.

    Claudia G.

  • Law offices of Seidner & Associates came through for me once again!!! Words can’t express how grateful I am to Matthew Seidner, Kristen Devaney and their staff. After years of things going wrong with my divorce with a prior attorney, I found Matt & he fixed all that went wrong. I was awarded money that was owed and never paid by my ex, sole custody and child support for both children.

    I appreciate Matt’s  professionalism, genuineness, passion and drive in helping me. I felt both he and Kristen felt my pain, so it was not just about trying to get my money, but instead revealing the truth and making sure there is justice for me and most importantly my children and that’s all I wanted, so for this I will be forever graciously grateful!!

    Dahra W.

  • I feel so grateful to have had the best team by my side during such a difficult time. They are committed to achieving positive results! When faced with a legal situation it could get very overwhelming very quickly; which is why you need a team like Seidner and Associates by your side. They are dedicated and highly experienced. I recommend this outstanding firm. I greatly appreciate everything they have done for my daughter and I! Special thanks to Kristen for all your patience. Thank you!

  • My husband and I contacted Mr. Seidner during a very difficult time. Matt was recommended to us by our neighbor who had obtained a reverse mortgage and met Matt as the bank’s closing attorney. We wanted a reverse mortgage but needed to get our affairs in order, including a transfer of the property, prior to applying. Matt took care of referring a bank, the property title issues, and preparing our Wills, Health Care Proxies, and other important documents. Days before the closing was finally ready to occur, my husband passed away. Matt knew that I was very emotional but that my husband would have wanted this closing to occur without any delays and Matt handled the death issues and handled the bank’s underwriting so that we wouldn’t lose any time and I could have one major thing less to worry about. We closed the loan and although everything went flawlessly from a legal standpoint, what I remember most me was the compassion, and the hug, I received from Matt. We are proud to say that he will be our family’s lawyer from now on.

    Navia L

  • Mr. Seidner represented my wife and I in what should have been a simple residential real estate sale. The sale transaction however was fraught with numerous disputes and threats of legal action by both a neighboring property owner, as well a potential purchaser of the property. Throughout the approximately six month ordeal, Matt displayed a comprehensive knowledge of the law, mastery of the practical considerations of closing a real estate transaction, plus real presence and charisma at the negotiating table that ultimately carried the day.

    James M

  • Matt Seidner has been one of our attorneys for several years during which time he successfully closed many hundreds of reverse mortgage loans. He began representing our company when we were a broker and he grew with us as we became one of the largest reverse mortgage lenders in the country. Matt understood that our goal as a national lender was to provide the best service in the industry and, as the post-closing customer surveys clearly show, he approached every file with that objective in mind. Our loan officers and customers consistently acknowledge Matt as exceptionally knowledgeable, professional, and personable. Our company takes great pride in working with only the highest quality practitioners and Matt has proven his expertise and abilities time and again. We look forward working together for years to come.

    David P

  • Wow, I’m so blessed to have found Matt. When I realized things were getting out of hand with my son’s affairs at his home I decided to take action, into this matter. See, my son, is my life. Also he is all I’ve got. I was feeling very powerless, and very emotional about this whole situation, since 99.99% of the people I have spoken to about father custody were telling me that the mother has a whole lot more power than the father when it comes to custody. But, all it took was a phone call and a simple interview with Matt. Wow, he reassured me in such way that it was going to be fine. He immediately picked up his pad, and started to write away. By the time I explain my whole situation, he gave me this reassuring smile and told me, “Ish, you got a case here”. After he explained all, he asked me if I want him to represent me, and I took a leap of faith, and I agreed….Wow, that was by far the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. And may be a year or less I think “cause it went so fast” we won the case. See I didn’t win the case, nor my spouse, but justice was done for my son. Now we are happy together. My son cannot thank Matt enough. Matt God bless you and your family…… Me and my son are forever in ded to you, friend.

    Ismael R

  • Good Evening Matt,

    I just wanted to say thank you again for the time spent today during our consultation. I appreciate the brutal honesty you displayed. Over the last 8 years or so, I’ve gotten the run around and have thrown away tons of money with no good outcome. Thank you for telling me the truth and not just taking my money only to tell me later I never really had a good case. If I hear of any co-workers/friends that are in need of assistance, you’ll be the first lawyer they call. All the Best in 2012.

    O. H.

  • Matt,
    Regardless of the outcome I want to thank you for your professionalism and compassion from day one. I left the hearing today knowing you made the best case possible and the rest is in the judge’s hands. Anyone who comes through your doors is very fortunate to have you represent them. See you soon and thanks, you’re a great guy, and I know I’m not the first to recognize it.

  • I am extremely happy with the services provided by Mr. Seidner. Everyone at the firm is very nice, very good and on the ball. Matthew has been the greatest. He has a lot of patience and is very tolerant.

    Esther D

  • Seidner & Associates was a breath of fresh air after meeting with many other attorneys who were unsatisfactory. From my first interaction with Mary Lou who scheduled my first appointment to meeting Matt Seidner, I knew this was a law firm that truly cares. I am confident in their capabilities and have nothing to worry about knowing that Seidner & Associates is my law firm.

    Natalie C

  • You feel like one of the family there and know you are taken care of.

    When I came to the Seidner firm I was sad, confused dealing with a subject I knew nothing about, and felt I may be judged by my family’s craziness. I felt welcomed and comfortable. One of the staff was already dealing with the same family situation and made me see it is not so unusual. The staff act as family towards each other and have great respect for Matt. I can see why. Matt is kind, smart, sincere, and really works hard for his client.

    Anne P

  • I’ve had a great experience with this attorney at law. We were successful in dismissing the order being pursued to me. He did a great job and I am very thankful to him and his associates, Kristen in particular. I highly recommend Matt and his law firm, Seidner & Associates, PC.

    The Bhola Family

  • I interviewed many lawyers before hiring Matt Seidner. Something just felt right with him and I went with my intuition because I knew I was only going to get one chance at this case. I wanted to relocate to Florida with my three children so we could have a better life after being abandoned by a deadbeat husband and father. Matt fought so hard for me all the way. The other side obviously knew they were going to lose so they tried every delay tactic in the book but it didn’t matter. Matt kept me calm, put them in their place, got the court on our side, and now I’m in Florida with my kids. His entire staff knew my case and I felt like part of their family. Kristen and Nicole were really on the ball. Now that it’s finally over, I’ll miss everyone. Thank you so much!

    Sheri T

  • I retained Matthew Seidner to negotiate a rather large bill from a nursing home. He is very good at his job and was very successful in saving my mother a great deal of money. He communicated well with me which added to my satisfaction of the completed transaction. His firm also handled my mother’s Medicaid application very efficiently. I would highly recommend Seidner & Associates if you need legal services.

    E.S.

  • Mr. Seidner’s tireless efforts, research and dedication to us is to be commended. He and his staff are dedicated, loyal, highly experienced and extremely patient. Working with Matt Seidner and Lisa Bergman this past year has been an extremely rewarding experience considering the circumstances of our unique legal situation. We came to see Matt in late August of 2012 regarding a situation we had with respect to a medicaid issue regarding our 98 year old Aunt who was in a nursing home. Matt and Lisa worked tirelessly over the last year with respect to trying to fix this unusually difficult situation. After hours and hours of phone calls, meetings and correspondence, Mr. Seidner and his competent staff finally came to an agreement and settled our case making all involved happy. I would highly recommend Seidner & Associates to anyone. It has been a sincere and a rewarding experience for our family and we are extremely happy with the end results of all the hard efforts that they put into making a success out of our difficult situation. Thank you Matt Seidner, Lisa Bergman and the rest of the staff at Seidner & Associates for a job well done.

    Sue H

  • From the moment I met Matthew Seidner I knew I was in good hands. I was going through a difficult time in my life. I had just decided to pursue legal guardianship of my mother. This was not a decision made lightly but I knew it had to be done. My mother needed my help. I explained my entire situation to Matt during my consult. He listened to my whole story with patience & understanding. When he explained that he could help me I was overjoyed and retained his services right then & there. It was the best decision I ever made. Throughout the whole process Matt & his staff were wonderful. Taking my mother to court was one of the hardest things I ever had to do. Matt truly understood what I was going through. Today I have guardianship of my mother. Her life & mine are much better than they ever would have been. Thank you Seidner & Associates for helping a broken family heal.

    Mary Lou G

  • I felt very confident that my matter was being handled with the utmost dedication and professionalism. I found the service I was provided to be very professional and the staff was always very courteous.

    Michael T

  • Matt Seidner helped us gain temporary custody of my Grandson (6 years old). I’m positive we will get custody of my Grandson. Seidner and Associates treats us like family. If anyone is looking for an excellent lawyer I recommend Matt Seidner and his wonderful team.

    Diane B

  • I found that Matthew Seidner’s number one concern was always for protecting my rights and advising me of all my options. I was always able to speak with him directly when needed, although his legal staff was also top notch.

    Bob

  • A divorce is a stressful time. My goal was to find an attorney who was able to advise me of ALL my options, and yet was willing to accept my decisions regarding how to proceed. I found that Matthew Seidner’s number one concern was always for advising me of my options throughout the process. Unlike previous legal experiences with other law firms, I was always able to speak with him directly, although I must say I found his legal staff to be very experienced, informative, and I felt comfortable working with them as well. I was kept informed constantly through the entire process. My main goal was a quick and fair settlement… my experience was a 10 out of 10.

    R.B.

  • When I walked into Matt’s office, I had just come off an emotional roller coaster. I was about to leave the country and needed someone, who was going to represent my case, while I was away. He listened to me and gave his opinion on how to best handle the situation and we moved forward. There were the inevitable bumps on the road, each of which were handled swiftly and with grace. Matt and Kristen were always available when I needed information and their legal advice helped keep my situation in perspective.

  • Matt addressed all of my questions and concerns which made me feel very comfortable. He completely understood my situation and my expectations. I was referred to Seidner & Associates by a close friend of the family. She advised that I would be very pleased with their services and she was right. Overall, I was very satisfied with my outcome and the service they provided.

    K. B.

  • To this day I am extremely touched by the fact that you saw how emotional and upset I was and you took the time to be very sensitive to my needs and concerns. You kept me calm and with your hard work and great efforts you accomplished the next to impossible! I came to your office for my initial consultation with you knowing I had a tough Child Custody Case on my hands and I knew I didn’t have much time left. The petition that needed immediate attention was from my ex-husband’s Attorney in Nashville, Tennessee stating that my ex wanted custody of my daughter who is 16 years old. His Attorney got a temporary ex-parte change of custody signed by a crazy judge down there who isn’t even allowed to take new cases due to her constant rate of reversal and she ordered me to send my daughter to Tennessee within 3 days of bringing my case to you. I never stood before that Judge in Tennessee and I was distraught by the fact that she instilled this order without a hearing about what was best for my daughter and demanding that I put her on that plane in 3 days. My kids were born in Nashville and I was divorced there in 1997 therefore Tennessee had jurisdiction due to a bad agreement I made a long time ago, but you helped me understand that I could get emergency jurisdiction in New York to ensure that my daughter stay living here with me. I sat across the table from you in your office and you began to speak to me about what needed to be done immediately to keep my daughter from having to get on that plane. Not at all an easy task and you saw my heart was broken and you sat with me for hours to get started on my case right then and there. You were up front and honest with me about what needed to be done and that it had to be done the very next day, a Friday, in court here in New York to keep me from having to put my daughter on a plane on Sunday. You looked at me and said “I will help you however it’s not going to be easy and we need to get started now.” You started to work on my case that night and stayed very late. You were very prepared for court the next day and we got our emergency jurisdiction and our judge here got the Tennessee judge to vacate the order, and my daughter stayed with me where she belongs and I wasn’t going to be held in contempt of court for not putting her on that plane. Thank you Matt (and team) for your continuing hard work and extraordinary efforts with our case.

    With warm regards,

    Doreen P

  • You know that you are in extremely good hands when you come here. That gives us a feeling of security and peace of mind. Finding an attorney that is extremely knowledgeable, caring and dedicated is wonderful. However, his office staff is the sweetest, kindest people you ever want to know.

    Lora & Bert

  • He guided me every step of the way without ever feeling lost, he made me aware of his every move and never once gave me false hope. His work ethics is great, non-judgmental, diligent, compassionate and caring; he is the true definition of an advocate.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Matt during my times of despair. My Case was very complicated because it involved international child custody and Matt handled this case as if it was right here in his backyard. My Daughter that I have been fighting for over 18 months was in my care within 48 hours after meeting Mr. Seidner and his devoted team. His professionalism and dedication is remarkable. He guided me every step of the way without ever feeling lost, he made me aware of his every move and never once gave me false hope. His work ethics is great, non-judgmental, diligent, compassionate and caring; he is the true definition of an advocate. Even if my case had not turned out the way it did I would have not been disappointed in Mr. Seidner’s work because I knew he put his all into it. If you choose Attorney Seidner to represent you, trust me you will be blessed beyond measure. Again with great pride I highly recommend Mr. Matthew Seidner.

    Donnovan G

    Sandra O

  • If you want to win and see the light at the end, Matthew Seidner is the attorney to hire. I hired Seidner & Associates for my child custody and child support case. My case went on for 3 1/2 years and throughout that entire time, Matthew Seidner was by my side. When I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, he encouraged me and keep my hopes up. He handled my case and treated me like family. Matthew Seidner is a very experienced, professional and passionate attorney.

    Latania K

    Michael T

  • Within minutes of meeting Mr. Seidner I had hope for the first time in months. His caring ways made you feel like family. When I came to Seidner & Associates, I was at my lowest point, and felt I had nowhere to turn. His staff is always willing and happy to speak with you and answer any questions. They are the best. You will never find better. When all is said and done I will definitely miss them all.

    Diane D

  • The Medicaid process is overwhelming and complicated, but the team at Seidner & Associates made the process easier to understand; communicated throughout the process; and were very responsive and knowledgeable to questions asked. I can’t imagine having to get through this process without such expertise.

    Kim S

  • He was the only one I felt listened to what I had to say. It was more than a legal matter that needed to be solved. I was a person with something to say.

    Matthew saved my family. I was a single mom living in Florida with two small boys when I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. With a quick response to the news I sent my two children to stay with their grandmother in New York so that I could seek treatment. After a few of the worst months of my life, I was a survivor! I immediately called to get my boys back home. After relocating to New York their father thought this is where they should stay. The brain tumor was easy compared to the fact that I was now states away from my boys and their father was refusing to bring them home.

    I had to get help. I could not do this alone. I had spoken to several lawyers before reaching Matthew. Right away Matt had me in court with visitation, phone calls, and a way back to my boys. The months leading up to trial were such an emotional time for myself and my family. The boys and I were in total distress. Matthew and his team were always there for me. At last I had my day in court. Matthew was knowledgeable, prepared, and had a successful plan for a resolution. It was a hard battle but I was on the winning team. We had complete victory. The boys were back in my custody. To say that I could not do this with out Matthew is an understatement. I put the trust of my family in his hands and he won the best possible future for my boys.

    I’ve only had to hire one Lawyer in my lifetime and Matthew was the one to hire. He didn’t just do a job, he changed out lives forever.

    Kelly M

  • 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.

    Selwyn W

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
