About Me

Born in Pittsburgh, PA in 1942, Laurence B. Green enlisted in the U.S. Army after his graduation from high school and served in both South Korea and Japan. Following his military career, he attended the University of Pittsburgh and graduated with a B.A. in 1966. After college, Mr. Green worked as a laborer in the open hearth furnace at the Homestead Works of U.S. Steel and was a member of the United Steel Workers of America. Thereafter, he attended the University of Pittsburgh Law School, where he received his J.D. in 1971. He is licensed to practice in all Pennsylvania State and Federal Courts and in the Supreme Court of the United States. He began his legal career as a staff attorney for Neighborhood Legal Services Association. He left that position to open a private law office in Pittsburgh in the general practice of law concentrating in Plaintiff's Personal Injury litigation. He is a founding partner of Berger and Green, where he serves as a Pennsylvania Personal Injury attorney for the firm.
