Michelle L. Greenberg

Michelle L. Greenberg, Esq. is a Partner in the Healthcare Litigation department and serves as General Counsel to Frier Levitt. She is an integral resource to firm leadership, advising on conflicts of interest, legal ethics and professionalism, and claims, loss prevention, and risk management.

Michelle focuses on healthcare and commercial litigation, as well as substantial personal injury matters. She has developed a comprehensive knowledge of the law in these areas and has been successful in obtaining positive results for her clients. She understands her client’s goals and works effortlessly yet aggressively to achieve the objective in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Michelle has extensive Courtroom experience on the State, Federal and Appellate level and utilizes her legal and persuasive arguments to obtain the best results for her clients including money judgments, injunctive relief, and dismissal of frivolous lawsuits.

In addition to her litigation experience, Michelle also focuses her efforts on assisting clients in resolving disputes before having to litigate. She has been instrumental in the separation of numerous healthcare practices and businesses without the need for protracted litigation.

Michelle recently obtained a settlement of $10 million for a client who was severely injured as a result of being struck and run over by a New Jersey Transit bus. The quick action in canvassing the scene of the incident for evidence yielded a surveillance video that captured the incident. This proved essential to disputing the bus driver’s version of the incident. Michelle is aggressive in representing her clients. She leaves no stone unturned and goes above and beyond to assist her clients.

In addition to the areas of healthcare and commercial litigation, Michelle developed an in-depth understanding of the Bankruptcy laws saving clients millions of dollars in preference “claw back” cases.
