About Monique

Learn Monique’s areas of practice.

Monique Lavender Greenberg focuses her practice on estate planning, advising families and individuals on the financial, legal and tax aspects of their estate plans.  Lavender Greenberg PLLC’s approach focuses on the individual client and is sensitive to the fact that even where two clients may have the same assets and goals, specific factors important to each client may necessitate completely different treatment.  There is no “one size fits all” in an estate planning context, and the practice focuses on what will work best for each client.

Monique Lavender Greenberg is an active member of the Miami community, and is especially passionate about her involvement in the Junior League of Miami, whose mission is focused on improving the lives of disadvantaged women and children in Miami.

Personal service
I have used Monique Lavender Greenberg for both an estate case and for personal estate planning. In both cases she and her office were not only professional, but accommodating in every way possible. I would not hesitate to hire her again in the future or recommend her to a friend.

Extremely Helpful
We came looking for a will and trust but knew very little about what exactly we needed. Monique took the time to explain everything in a way that I can understand and made me feel very comfortable and confident in the choices we made

A necessary investment
Monique is a truly experienced and compassionate lawyer. She has shown me how estate & trust planning done wrong can lead to big headaches and a ton of money lost down the road. I feel confident she set me & my kids up for future savings without roadblocks. She is also responsive, thorough and down to earth. Regardless of your assets or income I highly recommend you consult with Monique BEFORE you make any decisions.

Exceptional Professional Service
My husband and I used Monique Lavender Greenberg for estate planning. Mrs. Greenberg is extremely knowledgable, professional, and well organized. A true master in her field. I would personally recommend her to handle any and all issues related to Wills, Trust and Estate Planning. I cannot thank her and her team enough for being so accommodating and making our experience with our estate planning so flawless.

Fantastic service!
It was a pleasure doing business with this law firm. Often at times lawyers will rush through a process and you end up with more questions and even more bills. From the beginning we knew what to expect and how much it would cost. She is very professional and in my opinion one of the best lawyers I’ve done business with. I highly recommend anybody looking to properly create a trust to ensure your families financial future to do business with Lavender Greenberg ESQ. Thank me later.
