The best in NY state
Mr. Greenwald has the best "can do" ethic. He is resourceful and knowledgeable in every aspect of law.. He made me feel comfortable and confident of the results I needed. He is the most honest attorney I have met, and that's makes him the best out there.

Ben G
I was given Ben's number through a friend of mine. I was going to court for 2 yrs. I had 8 misdemeanors an 2 felonys. All in different towns with legal aid they wanted to give me state time. On one charge I was caught on camera trying to run the mother of my child's step father over with a car. I thought for sure I was going to prison. With only 2 appearances from Ben he got me either 3 yrs probation or 6 months in the county jail. An I only had to plea out to one misdemeanor. I took the 6 months. If it wasn't for him I would probably still b in prison right now. An he definitely worked with me on the prices. I think it's 2500 per misdemeanor an 3000 a felony. I told him my situation an only paid 4500. From then on I refuse to use another lawyer. Overall I give him a 5 star rating. If ur in trouble I highly recommend u call Ben.

Very Knowlegeable
I have worked with many lawyers, this one does care. Which is a rarity in this profession. He is not all about the money. He is about the challenge of getting the best possible results under the circumstances. By and large lawyers are bottom feeders, not Ben Greenwald.

Benjamin is a amzing attorney he worked on custody case for me. He was powerful and a lion in the court room. He kept me informed on everything that had to do with my case.

Ben Greenwald works miracles
Ben Greenwald will give 100% to your case I needed him twice and each time he came through for me. Ben had my conviction appealed and that was amazing . This time Ben worked another miracle and my case ended with a miracle result and I am happy to move forward with my life . Hopefully I never have to see him again but if I do I will always be at peace knowing he is on my side

Ben is a GREAT Lawyer!
Ben was great! I received a ticket and was appointed him by the court. I've never had to have a lawyer before but, I've heard bad stories about court appointed lawyers. I only had to meet with Ben once. I gave him the ticket and all of the information I had collected concerning the case and he took care of EVERYTHING for me. I have been dealing with my mother's cancer which is spreading and ontop of it all my best friends father died. Ben understood how much stress I was under and went to court for me. I would definitely use him again, although I'm hopeing I won't have to. I also have given his cards to multiple people. I can't say enough of how great he was.

Goes above and beyond
Don't know where to begin. I live in California and had legal problems from 12 years ago in New York. Finally, when I had enough money to get legal help I called many different lawyers and all of them sounded very rude,negative and not helpful. Would not check on my case without me sending them money first. Then I came across Benjamin Greenwald, before I even sent him money he called different courts to get an idea of what I was looking at and called me back that day with information pertinent to my cases. He made me feel comfortable enough to send money to even though I never met him. Right off the bat I felt like I could trust him. He knew my financial status was not that great and it was going to add up as we resolved each case, so he worked with me in that area. He handled everything promptly and professionally. He didn't treat me like a criminal or look down upon me and made me feel like a friend. Happy to report my cases are all taken care of with positive results and I thank him and his assistant Ms. Kirsten farris who is really his right hand women! She really took up the slack when Mr. Greenwald was too busy and went to bat for me with the judge and got positive results. I thank her and Mr. Greenwald personally for that and greatly appreciate all they've done for my cases. I suggest Mr. Greenwald give her a promotion for all she does. Overall I strongly recommend this just lawyer and his firm to anyone. They are honest and have integrity in what they do. I never even had to go back to New York to appear for any of the cases. Now I have a clean slate and move positively forward with my life. 2 thumbs up from California, former New Yorker!!

Genuinely changed my life
Ben Greenwald and team single handedly changed my life. I had the misfortune of going through the legal system, even went through a bunch of lawyers. Long story short i was in quite a predicament! Ben absolutely stepped into my legal life and took control. He was always very straightforward throughout. The case he handled for me even set precident i believe. I would absolutely suggest him and his firm. Through his hard work and dedication to me my life absolutely turned around. He went above and beyond for me and spent personal time to make me feel as comfortable as possible. His office was an absolute dream, i always felt overly taken care of. Benjamin Greenwald, an excellent Lawyer!! Ben, a stand up man!!!
