SELWYN D. WHITEHEAD, ESQ. [JD, LLM Tax Law, LLM IP Law, California Bar Bankruptcy Law Certified Specialist]
Selwyn D. Whitehead is a San Francisco Bay Area bankruptcy, estates and trusts, real estate and tax attorney whose practice focuses on helping her individual, family and small business clients manage their wealth through effective estate and tax planning and/or manage their debt through debt restructuring or bankruptcy. Selwyn also helps her clients facing foreclosure and represents clients dealing with emotionally and financially “taxing” issues before the Franchise Tax Board, the IRS and the U.S. Tax Court. Selwyn also seeks to vindicate the rights of seniors and members of our disabled community who find themselves victims of financial elder abuse.
As such, Selwyn has spent the greater part of the last 40 years, both before and after getting her license to practice law, fighting for the economic empowerment, independence and autonomy of all people, but especially women, people of color and communities of color, including Indigenous communities.
Between 2010 and 2019, Selwyn produced and hosted her weekly talk show, SELWYN’S LAW, airing Saturday mornings at 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM on the Christian Radio Stations KDIA and KDYA, whose broadcast footprint includes the San Francisco Bay Area and the Sacramento Valley. The show provided its listeners with practical, down-to-earth and legal-jargon-free information about finance, taxation, real estate, trusts and estates, and bankruptcy law and the public policy basis for each area of the law.
