Attorney Lee Greenstein New York Trial Attorney
I have been an attorney practicing personal injury law and criminal defense for almost 30 years. I am committed to my clients and devote myself to protecting their interests from the beginning to the end of the case. I have spent my career helping clients fight insurance companies and prosecutors, and taking on cases that other attorneys walk away from.
I am a trial attorney – I have conducted over 90 trials and hundreds of hearings. I have tried cases in almost every county in the Capital District and its adjoining counties, New York City, Syracuse, Utica and others. I was trained well in the courts of New York City in the late 1980’s. I am prepared to go the distance and commit myself to a trial defense if a satisfactory resolution cannot be obtained. You will never be passed off to another attorney during the case – I will handle your case throughout and because of my experience I will either negotiate the best settlement available or take the case to a jury.
I am also a skilled and experienced negotiator who understands that resolutions are reached in two ways: by establishing quality working relationships with adversaries and making sure they understand that we are prepared to litigate if an agreement cannot be reached. As a result I have negotiated thousands of cases for satisfied clients.
