NY Adoption Lawyers: Our Personal Adoption Story

How Greenberg & Greenberg was Founded

Greenberg & Greenberg is a family law firm that has been united by adoption. As partners of the firm, J. Michael Greenberg and Barbara Greenberg have personally experienced the joy and blessing of adoption by adopting their own son James and, years later, the happiness brought by the adoption of their grandson Jonathan. James was adopted at two weeks old in 1973 from Bogotá, Colombia and is now a partner in our firm.

Nearly 40 years after our very own adoption, our firm has proudly represented and guided more than 6,000 families through the complexities of the adoption process. Our firm is licensed in the states of New York and New Jersey. For 39 years, we have represented adoptive parents and birth parents in both domestic and inter-country adoptions. Perhaps our firm's most distinguishing attribute, in addition to being highly knowledgeable in the field of adoption, is the fact that we all have direct and personal connections to adoption as adoptive parents, grandparents, and as an adult adoptee.

A Truly Family-Oriented Firm

At Greenberg & Greenberg, our family understands what you or you and your loved one will go through at this critical point in your life, and we commend you for the selflessness and compassion you have shown in your commitment to open your lives to a child in need. We have experienced all phases of adoption first-hand as adoptive parents and adoptees and have refined our insight of the process through years of helping other families make their adoption dreams become realities.

To put it simply, we truly are a family adoption firm. Trust our firm and our team of experienced and caring New York adoption attorneys to help, support and guide your though what will become a joyous experience. Contact Greenberg & Greenberg to discuss your adoption needs.
