  • Donald Robert Schechter

    I endorse this lawyer. Todd Greenberg has not only been my friend for many years but has been co counsel with me on many cases. You will never find a more honest, bright and superlative advocate than Todd. I have seen him take very difficult cases and turn them into acquittals. I can't remember the last time he lost a DWI case. Todd is also a very hard worker,often working past midnight on many of his cases, especially while on trial. Despite being the tough, hard driven attorney that he is, he extremely likeable and caring with not only his friends, but his clients. You would be hard pressed to find an attorney with his track record and his success.
