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.

I realize how important it is for everyone, regardless of their financial situation, to have access to legal counsel. I am always looking for ways to make my practice as welcoming and cost-effective as it can be.
A Firm Commitment To Provide Personalized Counsel
At my firm, I work hard to advise and represent my clients well. 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 troubles that life can put in our paths, as well as for the 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. The personal attention, convenience and clear explanations of legal matters that I provide to my clients gives them reassurance as they help design their own estate plans. I also assist families in navigating the often-complicated process of probate and estate administration.
I offer complete estate planning packages as well as “unbundled” legal services, allowing clients to decide which portions of an estate plan to start with and when to add more. For most people, a simple will is the right place to start. For others, a power of attorney gives peace of mind as a practical answer to a common question: “How would my family handle my affairs if I were to become incapacitated?” With more than 25 years of experience, I know what it means to put clients’ priorities first.
