About me

Judy Greenwood, Esquire


Medical Malpractice Attorney and Birth Injury Lawyer


Judy Greenwood


  I founded the Law Offices of Judy Greenwood, P.C. in 1993 and have been litigating serious personal injury cases, with an emphasis in women and children’s injuries, since I began my practice. Many of my cases are medical malpractice cases filed on behalf of women and children against doctors and hospitals.  While I aggressively represent my clients, I offer a caring approach to their circumstances. I  graduated from Temple University in 1971 with a Bachelor of Science degree and from Rutgers University of Law in 1975 with a Juris Doctor degree. After graduating from law school I  worked as a public interest lawyer litigating on behalf of indigent clients both in state and federal court. I  joined the person injury firm Bernstein, Bernstein, & Harrison, where I  became a partner and litigated cases involving medical malpractice, product liability, auto and trucking accidents, and workplace and recreational injury cases for the firm.  Since 1993, when I  founded my own firm, I  have successfully litigated serious personal injury cases on behalf of my clients who are catastrophically injured.
