Motivated to deliver our compassion, concern and unwavering commitment, Greenberg & Greenberg is truly a family firm like no other.

Remembering Barbara F. Greenberg

It is with tremendous sadness that Joel and I announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother and law partner, Barbara F. Greenberg, earlier this evening. Barbara touched so many lives and helped to create so many families. She brought joy and happiness to all that had the privilege of knowing her. She was an adoption pioneer, a staunch and passionate advocate, and a surrogate mom/aunt/grandmother to so many. There are no words to describe how much she will be missed. The world is a better place because of her.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any donations be made to People Need Caring, Inc.:

3 Sierks Ln.,
Roslyn Harbor New York, 11576.
