Joseph J. Selinger

Tobin, Carberry, O’Malley, Riley & Selinger P.C., is proud to announce that Attorney Joseph J. Selinger was recently designated as an AV Preeminent® rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell. Attorney Selinger was given an AV rating from his peers, which means that he was deemed to have very high professional ethics and preeminent legal ability.

The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings evaluate lawyers based on the anonymous opinions of members of the Bar, including both those who are rated and those who are not. Martindale-Hubbell conducts secure online surveys of lawyers across multiple jurisdictions and geographic locations, in similar areas of practice as the lawyer being rated. Reviewers are instructed to assess their colleagues’ general ethical standards and legal ability in a specific area of practice. Attorneys are rated in five key areas including legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication ability and legal experience.

“All of the Firm’s forty-five employees are very proud that Martindale-Hubbell has selected Attorney Selinger for this recognition. He is widely known throughout the state for his excellent work as a corporate and securities lawyer, bond counsel and commercial real estate practitioner serving governmental and institutional clients and local businesses,” said Managing Partner Glenn Carberry.

“With Joe’s rating, we are pleased to report that all five of the Firm’s name partners (Tobin, Carberry, O’Malley, Riley & Selinger) have received an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell, which we believe emphasizes our collective commitment to quality work and professionalism,” said Senior Partner Robert Tobin.


Attorney Selinger began his legal career in 1978 after graduating from the University of Connecticut Law School, and joined the Firm in 1987. In addition to being AV-Preeminent rated, Attorney Selinger was named a Connecticut Super Lawyer in 2006 in the field of Business and Corporate Law. He is a member of many professional associations, including the New London County Bar Association, American Bar Association and the National Association of Bond Lawyers. Notably, Attorney Selinger was a member of the Connecticut Bar Association drafting committee that reviewed, revised and recommended the model uniform limited liability company act for enactment which became effective on July 1, 2017.

In 2017, Attorney Selinger was named President of the New London County Historical Society and is a member of the Board of Directors for the Mystic Art Association and the Thames River Heritage Park Foundation.
