We at Seelig Law Offices in New York City are very pleased to announce that one of our partners, Richard Seelig, has recently been selected as a 2015 Super Lawyers “Rising Star” for his outstanding work in the legal field. In order to be culled as a Super Lawyer, Richard had to go through a rigorous selection process, involving nomination, independent research, peer recognition of professional achievement and a final selection. In addition, in order to be deemed a “Rising Star,” he had to meet the requirement of either being 40 years old or younger, or being in practice for a maximum of 10 years. While up to 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are named as Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list. We are proud to see Richard achieve such a pinnacle of success.
Richard emphasizes his practice in Social Security claims, disability pensions, criminal matters and unemployment insurance claims. He has helped hundreds of clients to obtain the pensions and disability benefits they deserve and assisted countless others in bringing their legal troubles to a satisfactory conclusion. He has been part of Seelig Law Offices since the firm’s inception. Prior to that, he interned at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the New York City Police Department Advocate’s Office. He also spent one year as a student Assistant District Attorney at the Bronx County District Attorney’s Office and served on the Executive Board of the Polestino Trial Advocacy Institute at St. John’s Law School.
Even as a very young man, Richard had his eyes on the stars. After obtaining his B.S. degree from Cornell University, Richard received his J.D. from St. John’s School of Law. He is now a member of both the American Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association.
