His even, thoughtful demeanor, coupled with his diverse litigation experience, makes him a valuable asset to the firm. Mr. Seilback has always taken a strong interest in advocating for victims seeking justice.  Mr. Seilback recently settled a difficult wrongful conviction case and a 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund case for over one million dollars each, as a result of his tenacious and thorough investigation and prosecution.  Mr. Seilback works closely with victims of childhood sexual abuse and is experienced in filing and litigating cases brought on behalf of young victims.

Mr. Seilback concentrates his practice in the areas of civil rights and wrongful conviction matters, childhood sexual assault cases brought under New York’s Child Victims Act, personal injury litigation, motor vehicle negligence, premises liability, construction accidents and wrongful death. He also has vast experience handling Surrogate’s Court and estate matters.

Mr. Seilback received his B.A. from Binghamton University in 2001, and his law degree from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in 2004. He graduated near the top of his class and was a member of several international moot court competitions in Vienna, Austria and Vilnius, Lithuania. He is certified in Dispute Resolution, and has experience handling arbitrations and mediations.

Here is a recent example of a wrongful conviction case that Mr. Seilback has handled:

  • In the Matter of the Claim of the decedent v. The State of New York: Claim No:  129261
  • In the Matter of the Claim of the decedent v. The City of New York

On the night of February 6, 1980, the decedent-claimant was home, in bed with his wife, in Brooklyn, New York.  While he was sleeping, a fire occurred at 695 Sackett Street, Brooklyn, New York.  The fire resulted in the deaths of the occupants of the third floor, Elizabeth Kinsey and her five young children.

Due to a faulty arson investigation and an unreliable witness, the claimant was convicted at trial. The decedent-claimant, served time in prison from November 23, 1981 until his death on December 5, 1989.  At the time of his sentencing, the claimant’s daughter, was only 9 months old.  After his sentencing, he never saw her outside of prison.   In the last year of life, the claimant was transferred between multiple hospitals and multiple prisons.  The claimant, a loving husband and father, died as a wrongfully convicted felon.

As a result of the injustice endured by the family, Darren Seilback was able to obtain a $1,300,000 settlement for the Estate of the claimant from the City and State.
