Michael J. Greenberg, P.C.

Known as an attorney with an astute, compassionate, and patient approach, Michael J. Greenberg treats all clients and their wishes with uncompromising respect.  Before starting his own law firm, Michael spent nearly a decade working at several prestigious law firms.

Michael entered Estate Planning and Elder Law after his father was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease.  He has first-hand experience with many of the issues his clients face each day.

Michael has been named a Rising Star in Estate Planning and Probate in the Metro Edition of the New York Super Lawyers each year since 2017. New York State recently certified his firm to provide Continuing Education to licensed social workers.

Michael
recently joined the prestigious Professional Advisory Council of the Calvary Hospital.
