Mr. Greenberg has specialized in estate planning and estate and trust administration for more than 41 years.

"I take a client centered approach to estate planning. This means that the client's goals and situation drive their estate planning, not what I believe may be important. This is different from others who try to force clients into a pre-defined pattern or type of plan." This client-centered approach is critical since the passage of the Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.
