Review Michael Greenstein

  • Over and Beyond After nearly decade of another attorney failing to do a job, I began my search for professionalism...

    Posted by a client

    I would describe the initial consultation as instant connection. Mr Greenstein saw the emotional turmoil and drama created by prior attorney failing to do the job. He said "I am not cheap" but promised to cut through a tangled mess like wax. He then asked what my goal was.
    Peace of Mind and Finalization.... at all costs
    The team did exactly what they promised and it was reassuring how each person on the staff was accurately informed of my case upon each representation.
    I appreciated the honesty Greenstein Family Law Firm and the convience of electronic communication through the MyCase site, saving time and money.
    More than just legal advice in legal terms, they went overboard to explain situations in real language.
    The reality of completion seemed like a never ending story prior to hiring the firm; yet I can say without any regrets the outcome was exactly what I needed --Peace of Mind!
    Without hesitation, would recommend any person contemplating hiring a legal team that does exactly what they say they will do consult with this firm first. It took them less than 2 years to finish a job that a prior attorney failed to do.

  • Exceptional Services!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Contessa

    I had an exceptional experience with Attorney Michael Greenstein. So far, I've had 2 office consultations with Attorney Greenstein. I was completely blown away by how thorough, genuine, and caring Attorney Greenstein treated me. He simply over delivered on all of my expectations. He took the time to go over every single detail of my case and elaborated on every question I had. In between office consultations, Attorney Greenstein promptly and thoroughly answered my questions via email. I walked away from each consultation feeling empowered and knowledgable about what to expect from a legal standpoint. From the very beginning and all throughout my conversations with Attorney Greenstein, he has remained truthful and informative. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with his Law Services. I highly recommend the Family Law Services of Michael Greenstein, as I know the services are nothing short of exceptional.

    I found Attorney Michael Greenstein to have excellent people skills. He was more than patient with me. He answered all of my questions in great detail. He even offered to provide additional office support if the need arises. I am more than pleased with how understanding and caring he was toward me. I highly recommend the services of Attorney Michael Greenstein for matters involving family. You will not be disappointed!

  • Poor Representation

    1.0 star

    Posted by a client

    I hired this firm to represent me in a PFA case. Upon initially contacting the firm I was impressed with there quick response and willingness to answer my questions. I had a 2 hour consult with the Sr. Attorney at the firm the day after contacting them. The consult went ok but I did feel like very little of that 2 hours was spent actually focusing on my case. Mr. Greenstein likes to talk about anything & everything. Despite that I did in fact hire the firm. A junior associate (Mr. Fridy) was sent in Mr. Greensteins place and to make a long story short he was not prepared, had never handled a PFA case before and flat out didn't represent me or my interests at all. An order was put in place temporarily regarding visitation for my child... when I was told previously by Mr. Greenstein that nothing pertaining to visitation would take place.
    I had to pay another attorney to represent me moving forward and to try to fix damage that was done by filing an emergency motion because of my poor representation from Greensteins firm... upon doing that I found out from the other parties attorney and the judge that Mr. Fridy (the junior associate at Greensteins firm) didn't say or do anything to let my concerns be know.
    Upon contacting Greensteins firm regarding my dissatisfaction with my representation and the bill I received, I got nothing but excuses. I had charges on my bill for Mr. Fridy "reading text messages" for almost an hour and a half. Which was unneeded because I directed him to the exact day he should read but I also know that it did not happen because if it had then Mr. Fridy would have known what some of my concerns were when going into court and would have brought them up.
    I'm disappointed with this firm and I would not recommend them.

    Michael Bruce Greenstein’s response: “Neither I, nor anyone at my firm, ever has nor ever will appear in court unprepared. Client service and client satisfaction are always priorities, and because results are beyond any lawyer's control, we also prioritize being a "reality check" on our own clients to ensure that we are working in partnership rather than at cross-purposes. No one likes to be told that he or she is contributing to a difficult situation, of course, and legal advice is always harder to follow than it is to give, but the bitter truth is that no lawyer can help you in any lasting way if you don't follow that advice. The most dangerous thing you can ever bring into a courtroom is the sure and certain knowledge that you are utterly right, that your ex is utterly wrong, and that anyone who cannot see that essential truth must either be stupid, blind or corrupt. Judges will always see your situation differently than you do; and the judge's perspective and priorities must also become your own if you want any hope of success in a courtroom. This is why I always call things for clients as I see them, without a sugar-coating, because I believe that clients should hear hard truths from me across a desk or over the telephone before they have to hear them from judges across a courtroom. Any lawyer of long experience can tell you that some clients don't respond well to that. Some clients will argue with their lawyers when encouraged to abandon a black-and-white perspective that no judge will buy into, and then -- when the judge doesn't buy into it, after all! -- choose to blame the lawyer they didn't want to listen to in the first place. It's not a perfect world of course, but I suppose that's just as well given that a perfect world probably doesn't need lawyers. The commenter's description of events during the brief period when she was a client of my firm is highly inaccurate, but I nevertheless hope that she ultimately finds the kind of satisfaction she seeks.”

    Michael handled my case of termination of parental rights and subsequent adoption of my son by my husband and our family could not be happier with the results. The long, difficult, and drawn out process of parental right termination was stressful and scary. Michael and his team made sure we were fully equipped to present with confidence and the results were exactly as they should be. I cannot thank him enough for helping to close a turbulent chapter of our lives and making our family 100% official and complete.

    I have used Mr. Greenstein more than once. Approximately 18 years ago was my first filing for Divorce and I wish I would have followed through. Mr. Greenstein and his staff are amazing. I got my divorce this past year. I would never choose anyone else. I am very thankful to have found his firm. Highly recommended.

    I just needed a quick and easy, and affordable, divorce option. My ex and I had issues with another lawyer filing paperwork properly and when we got fed up, I found Michael Greenstein. He was kind, up front, and him and his associates and staff never got frustrated when I called to get updates or ask questions. They were on top of it the whole time! From start to finish we were complete in just 4 months. Perfection!

    I hired Michael Greenstein to represent me in my divorce and I couldn't be more satisfied. Michael was very professional and courteous. He was always available to reassure me and answer any questions that came up. Divorce can be very stressful and having an attorney who is knowledgeable and responsive made the process much smoother. His paralegal, Debra, was also extremely helpful. His fee is reasonable and as promised, there were no hidden costs.
