David Greenberg

David H. Greenberg - Attorney

Mr. Greenberg is not like other injury attorneys; he has a unique passion for beating the odds to help his clients obtain maximum compensation. When Mr. Greenberg faces a difficult case, he does not give up, he fights harder. Other work injury and personal injury law firms are focused on taking the easiest path possible while Mr. Greenberg focuses on taking the path that is best for his clients.

“There's nothing I enjoy more than taking an ‘impossible' case and turning it into a significant win that can change a client's life forever. In my fifty years of practice, my most rewarding cases have been the ones where we fought a greedy insurance company who was determined not to pay a cent to our client, and won against all odds.” – David Greenberg
