A Government Procurement Law Firm Dedicated to Helping People Interact with Their Government

Whitcomb, Selinsky, McAuliffe, PC, 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 after working as a federal government attorney.  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 WSM 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.

International Business Transactions

The lawyers at WSM have a rich background dealing in international business matters.  Attorney and shareholder Dan McAuliffe has served in several military tribunals in support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.  He has also advised the military on international law matters.  Founding attorney Joe Whitcomb earned his masters in international relations while serving in the military and went on to focus his legal studies at the University of Denver in international law under professor Ved Nanda, a nationally recognized scholar in the area.

After WSM began taking on more and more clients with an interest in marketing their goods and services overseas, Joe returned to DU to work on his LLM in International Business Transactions.  He is scheduled to complete that program in May 2016.  

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 law firms shy away from complex litigation and appellate level advocacy, ours 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.
