At Greenberg & Stein, the attorneys have a long history of protecting and vindicating the rights of people whose lives were devastated in preventable accidents. Combined, they bring more than five decades of litigation experience to the practice; and, as firm president and founding partner Seth Greenberg notes, this expertise has proved vital in pursuing justice for injured clients.
“We know what information will compel insurance companies to pay a fair settlement, and we are skilled at using the most effective strategies to negotiate with adjusters and claims representatives,” he says. “Most importantly, every case we present is fully prepared for trial, allowing us to take claims to court if insurance companies fail to offer fair settlements.”
Over its history, the firm has successfully represented clients in personal injury cases ranging from construction and auto accidents to slip-and-falls and wrongful death matters. Its attorneys are particularly well known for their staunch advocacy on behalf of construction workers and others injured while working. As part of its practice, the firm helps to ensure that clients obtain workers’ compensation and/or No-Fault benefits, so that all medical bills are paid and money still comes into the household while the client— who is often the only family breadwinner—cannot work.
“We firmly believe that all accident victims are entitled to justice,” says founding partner Joshua Stein, a member of the Multi-Million
Dollar Advocates Forum who has been included in New York Super Lawyers since 2014. “Throughout our careers we have made it our mission to serve injured and disabled clients and hold accountable those responsible for their injuries.”
In 2015, for example, Greenberg & Stein achieved a jury verdict of $5.48 million on behalf of a health aide whose fall in a hospital ended her career; the award was reported by VerdictSearch as one of the top 30 verdicts in the state of New York for that year. The firm also obtained one of the state’s top construction accident verdicts for 2011, when it secured a $2 million award on behalf of a laborer whose fall from a scaffold resulted in face and spine fractures.
“As a boutique firm, we pay attention to every case we handle, tailoring our strategies to meet each client’s individual legal needs,” says Greenberg of these successes. “Ultimately, that devotion to achieving client satisfaction through personalized service sets us apart from many other firms.”
Client service is a priority at Greenberg & Stein—every phone call is taken, all questions are answered, and clients are kept informed about the status of their case. “We have personally seen the confusion, devastation, and chaos that people experience following an accident,” notes Stein. “That’s why we strive to help clients get their lives back on track in the fastest, easiest way possible.”
