I struggled on a child custody case for over 10 years, never felt safe dealing with lawyers and procedures. Michael Greenstein with in no time was able to understand my situation and explained clearly what my options are and how they can be handled. I left his office feeling confident and secured that he has me covered. Tara Hutchinson took care of my case so fast and very efficiently within very reasonable cost. Michael and Tara are the best! I recommend them for anyone looking for justice.

Michael Greenstein and JP Fridy represent me in a divorce action that has gone on for quite some time. I hired Michael and his firm last year and I could not be more impressed. Their efforts on my behalf have been outstanding. Communications are detailed but easy to understand. They appreciate my input too, which makes for a great working relationship. Their pleadings are thorough and eloquently written. In the courtroom their performance is second to none. The office billing system is also the best I have ever encountered, turning what used to be an arduous task into a rather simple matter. I had quite a few attorneys before I found Michael Greenstein and Greenstein Family Law, so I feel uniquely qualified to say that I finally found the best Family Law practice in Pittsburgh. Michael, JP, and the entire staff are very skilled. They have all been wonderful to work with. They care about their clients, and are the best advocates for my rights that I ever could have hoped for. I highly recommend Michael Greenstein, JP Fridy and everyone at Greenstein Family Law. I truly appreciate having their help through this extremely difficult time in my life.

Mr. Greenstein was extremely knowledgeable, courteous, considerate and most importantly able to explain the systems in simple terms. I left his office feeling I had leaned a great deal. I highly recommend this man.

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.

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 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 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!
