Bill Greenberg is an accomplished and skillful trial attorney and fierce litigator with over 40 years of experience in the area of litigation. He has tried hundreds of civil cases in his career representing injured victims.  

He co-founded this law firm with one goal in mind – advocating for survivors of sexual abuse, sexual assault and sexual molestation.  He has a unique understanding of the sexual abuse law in New York and how obstructive the state law has been in allowing victims to seek justice against the perpetrators of their abuse and the institutions that helped cover up the abuse.  He successfully extended liability under 42 U.S.C. Section 1983 to municipalities who failed to properly investigate sexual abuse allegations towards municipal employees.  He understands the sensitive and unique nature of sexual abuse claims and how important it is to build trust between the client and attorney.  He represents sexual abuse victims of all ages and works with clients to minimize the trauma associated with discussing abuse. 

He characterizes his law practice as focused, single-minded advocacy. When he takes on a client, he stays involved in every aspect of the case and personally calls you back when you contact him with questions or concerns.  He fights tenaciously for his clients’ rights and prides himself on giving his clients a voice in their quest for justice.
