About Us

Full Service Law FirmA Law Firm Dedicated to Helping People Interact with Their Government

Whitcomb, Selinsky, McAuliffe, PC, (WSM Law) is a full service law firm serving clients’ diverse legal needs.  Our focus is  in helping people in their interactions with federal, state and local governments.  Attorney Joseph Whitcomb founded his law firm initially to provide legal representation to claimants applying for disability benefits through the Social Security (SSDI/SSI) and the Veterans’ Administrations (VA).  We know firsthand that dealing with the federal government can be frustrating and unnecessarily  confusing.

Meeting the Legal Needs of Veteran Owned Businesses

Many of the veteran clients that came to WSM, indicated a  desire to start their own business and eventually become SDVOSB certified so they could bid for and win government contracts. Borrowing from his own experience starting and running a successful law firm and going through the CVE certification process himself, Joe Whitcomb decided to devote some of his time and talents to helping other veterans in their business endeavors.  The ultimate goal at Whitcomb Law,  PC is to be a full service law firm that grows as our clients succeed in business and in life.  We know from experience that challenges await as you start and grow your business and we want to be there for you along the way.

Defending the Civil Rights of Citizens and Workers

The lawyers at WSM are also passionate about getting justice for those whose civil rights were violated either by their government or their employer.  Our staff of trained and experienced litigators will use their considerable education and skills to help you win back what was taken by an unscrupulous employer or government official.  We have fought and won many battles on this front and we are eager to fight and win for you.  The process begins with a phone call and a free consultation to discuss the merits of your claim.  If we believe your case is one worth fighting for, we will use every available legal tool in representing you and keep you appraised of the progress at every step.

Handling Complex Litigation and Appellate Matters

Part of being a full service law firm is finding ways to litigate cases that don’t fall into neat compartments.  That is why the lawyers at WSM are dedicated to staying up-to-date on developments in the law as they happen.  A great deal of our legal practice is dedicated to legal writing and appellate level advocacy.  WSM’s founder, Joe Whitcomb, cut his teeth in the legal business with a massive amount of writing and research when he started his legal career as an attorney with the Social Security Administration.  The attorneys at WSM have written hundreds of legal briefs and experienced more than their fair share of successes.  While many attorneys shy away from complex litigation and appellate level advocacy, our law firm thrives in that environment.  If you find yourself in uncharted legal waters or in the throws of a legal appeal that looks like an uphill battle, give our law firm a call.  We welcome the challenge.
