About Roy Greenberg Esq.
The Practice and Clients
My practice is limited to buying, selling, building, and leasing real estate. I have represented sellers, buyers, builders, title companies, and banks. My clients are from all over America, as well as from England, Ireland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Sweden.
I personally handle every file that comes across my desk instead of giving it to a summer intern or associate. Because of my focus on real property, I’ve been able to purchase specialized software, books and database subscriptions, all to do a better job for you.
Admitted to practice in New York, United States District Court, Southern and Eastern Districts.
Member of the Suffolk Bar, New York Bar, and American Bar Associations.
I have spent the bulk of my career working as a real estate attorney, and I'm available to serve as a media source speaking on topics like:
- Unique patterns of the luxury real estate market
- Common mistakes buyers and sellers make
- How to protect yourself when you're buying a home
- How to know if you're working with the right attorney
- What to expect when you're spending millions on a home
- What to do when a real estate deal starts going south
- What the wealthiest people in the world really want in a home
- How buying and selling is different when it's a second home
You can see some of my press clips on how town and village property taxes work in the Hamptons, which property taxes can be deducted in the US, and whether there are benefits to prepaying your property taxes in the US.
My use of technology has always helped me better serve my clients. I am a Suffolk County leader in the use of technology in law offices. After buying my first PC in 1988, I explored the use of email before most attorneys knew what it was. Before queries could be Googled, I answered legal questions on long-gone online bulletin boards. I was among the first attorneys on Long Island to use customized document assembly software (under MS-DOS, no less) to more quickly produce a quality product. Few attorneys agreed when I suggested that their multi-volume libraries would be replaced by online research. I can still remember the look of astonishment at closings in the late ‘90s when I opened my laptop to show how my spreadsheet automatically adjusted the final figures.
