Inspired by Abraham Lincoln, Philip Alan Greenberg, Esq. decided to pursue an education in law and politics. Although he didn’t stick with politics in his career, he has been practicing law for 45 years, with seasoned expertise in litigation, divorce law, and family law. In 1970, Mr. Greenberg graduated cum laude from Brooklyn College, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in political science and sociology. He then attended law school and received a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the New York University School of Law in 1973. After receiving his law degree, Mr. Greenberg was admitted to practice by the New York State Bar in 1974. In 1975, he was admitted to practice by the U.S. Federal Courts, the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York, and the U.S. Tax Court. In 1977, he was admitted to practice by the U.S. Supreme Court Bar. Finally, in 1988, he was admitted to practice by the New Jersey State Bar Association.
As a dedicated lawyer, Mr. Greenberg began his career after graduating from the New York University School of Law. From 1973 to 1978, he served as an associate at Kamerman & Kamerman in New York City, where he later served as partner from 1978 to 1982. From then on, Mr. Greenberg served as partner and then managing partner of various civil litigation firms throughout New York City. In 1995, he became a partner at Wallman, Greenberg, Gasman & McKnight before venturing into private practice in 2000. Having practiced law as a partner at Philip A.

In addition to Mr. Greenberg’s primary appointments in the field of law, he was a faculty member and paralegal at the Sobelsohn School from 1988 to 2000 and he has served as a lecturer at the National Business Institute since 2010. He has also appeared on television numerous times. Mr. Greenberg considers a highlight of his prolific career to be winning a verdict of 1.7 million dollars for a case he took on nearly 40 years ago. He regards this significant accomplishment as an important learning experience that helped him throughout the rest of his career. Civically, Mr. Greenberg has given back to his community as a trustee for Congregation Emunath Israel or The Chelsea Shul in New York City.
