About Griffin Selby Law PLLC
I’m Karen M. Selby, and I worked as an attorney and human resources professional for over 20 years before founding Griffin Selby Law PLLC. I started my firm for the same reason that I went to law school: to help people and make an impact upon the world.
As a proud graduate of Howard University School of Law, I endeavor to live by the mantra “to whom much is given, much is required.” I am also a graduate of Rutgers University where I majored in political science, history and Africana studies.

A Personal Commitment To Justice
At my firm, I take cases that I believe in and fight tirelessly to protect the rights of my clients. In my employment law practice, I represent clients who have been treated unfairly at work. I have handled cases in state and federal courts involving racial discrimination, harassment and sexual harassment, including sexual preference discrimination. I’ve also represented clients in disability discrimination and housing discrimination cases.
After losing my best friend to brain cancer, I started my practice in estate planning and estate administration. This experience taught me the importance of having a will, a power of attorney and a living will. It also fueled my desire to dedicate a portion of my law practice to helping clients prepare for the unknown but certain occurrence of death. As part of my estate planning work, I draft wills and trusts to help clients distribute their assets and belongings in a seamless manner. I also assist families in navigating the often-complicated process of probate and estate administration.
My work in family law began at Legal Services in Camden, New Jersey, which was the starting point for my legal career. At Legal Services, I served as a family law attorney and developed a passion for litigation. This position also taught me how important it was for everyone, regardless of their financial situation, to have access to justice and legal counsel.
Family law representation at my firm is offered as an “unbundled” legal service, allowing clients to decide the portions of a family law case that they can handle themselves, with some assistance from an attorney, and which areas require full representation — such as making a court appearance, handling a trial or attending mediation.
