"James Greenberg is our favorite lawyer EVER! He is truly a special human being who was there for us every step of the way in the adoption of our wonderful child. Every time we visited with him, he devoted all of his attention and resources to our needs and desires. The most wonderful part was being able to call him and have him answer the phone almost every time, and when he couldn't, he called us back very promptly. Jaime is someone you feel that you can talk to about absolutely anything, and we highly recommend him to anyone going on the adoption journey. Unfortunately, there are many organizations that take advantage of adoptive parents, but we always felt that Greenberg & Greenberg was very reasonable with the pricing of their services and focused more on supporting us through the journey. THANKS JAIME!"
"Dedicated to Luc's birthmother: Today was our finalization for Luc's adoption; a day that celebrates a beginning with no end. Our love for Luc began at the Premier Diner when we first saw how he made your body so beautiful and your soul shine brighter than ever before. That day, you chose us to be Luc's mom and dad because you loved him beyond your own needs. Since that day, we have been his mommy and daddy, by choice and by election. Today, the judge told Luc "congratulations, this is your new mommy and daddy", I simply looked at him and said softly with a smile: "I am your new mommy and your old mommy". I have been there and always will; fittingly we went to celebrate for brunch at the nearby diner. We parked and I looked up to see that it was the Infinity Diner. It made me smile because my love for my son will be for infinity and so will yours for him. We were seated in a corner table just like the one at Premier Diner, when we first met each other... strange enough we found ourselves in the same seating arrangement... But this time with Luc instead of you. We have loved you both from the moment that we met you and we will for infinity, Luc and Samantha."
"Working with James was a HUGE blessing. He was referred to us by many adoptive parents and he did not disappoint. He was thorough, kind, responsive, and super professional. If you want to start an adoption journey, James is the lawyer you want by your side. He will be your ally."
"I was adopted at two months old from Bogota, Colombia. My mom always said that Barbara and Joel Greenberg were the ones that made us a family. The best thing that Barbara and Joel ever did was make a community of adopted children. They held annual picnics and holiday parties. I grew up knowing many other adopted children and feeling special - not different."
"My husband and I had been trying to have kids for years. We were referred to the Greenberg's based on a referral from a friend. Our orphanage in Colombia, Casa de Maria Y El Nino matched us with a little boy... a perfect match for our family. The Greenberg's helped make our experience great! They were there for us answering our questions and helped us with a smooth transition. We are forever grateful for the Greenberg's and Casa De Maria Y Nino, in Colombia. I would tell anyone if they want to grow their family through adoption that the Greenberg's can help them."
"After three adoptions with the Greenbergs, we consider them to be extended family. They successfully navigated us through the many challenges inherent in adoptions today and drew upon their decades of experience to ensure our "happy endings". The Greenbergs also guided us through the domestic legal filings and seemingly endless paperwork for our re-adoptions, citizenship certificates, and name changes in an organized, thorough, and knowledgeable manner. The Greenbergs have a wise, thoughtful, compassionate approach to their work. They are tireless in their efforts, they are trustworthy, and they give everything a personal touch. They are a unique, one of a kind law firm, and we highly recommend them. We will be forever grateful to the Greenbergs for bringing us together as a family."

"We were married in the early 60's and gave birth to a son who we lost in an accident at 5 years old. After years of struggling with infertility, adoption was an easy decision for us. Our only problem was finding the right path. We met Joel Greenberg at a meeting of adoptive parents in the mid 70's. By the end of the evening, we knew Joel was right for us. He was a soft-spoken (still is), experienced professional; we felt comfortable with him; and he and Barbara had been through the adoption process themselves. Every step of the way, Joel was always available to us, walking us through the application process, the home study, and finally giving us the good news that we were parents of a baby girl born November 15, 1976. How thrilled we were when we took her home on January 29, 1977, the day we still celebrate as our Family Anniversary. Through the early years Joel and Barbara hosted garage sales at their home for the benefit of the orphanages in Colombia. Those were wonderful days when the parents helped with the sale and the children played together on the lawn (which I'm sure had to be renovated at the end of the day). Of course, we'll never forget the annual picnics and holiday parties which began with a small group and grew year after year until it was hard finding a venue large enough to hold the event. We have a very long relationship with the Greenberg's going back almost 38 years. After all this time they are more than friends...they are our extended family. The only thing that's changed is that Joel now has two wonderful partners, Barbara and Jaime. We knew years ago that we made the right choice when we asked you to guide us down the path to adoption. God bless you Joel, Barbara and Jaime for all the lives you have touched. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for taking us down that path and making us a family again."

"I adopted my son from Guatemala in 2006 (home 2006). He is now going to be 7 years old and it was the best experience in my life. I am a single mother and every day I am amazed with the miracle of my handsome son. I started out with an agency and about 3 months into the process, I spoke with an acquaintance who adopted her son from Guatemala, through the Greenberg's. She had such a positive experience with the Greenberg's that I immediately set up an interview with them. The first day I met with Barbara, I was convinced that the Greenberg's were who I wanted to share this experience with. She made me feel comfortable and explained the entire process to me. I also met with Joel and Jaime that same day. I immediately switched to having the Greenberg's handle the adoption process for me. From the start of the process, to the day my son came home was one year total. He was 6 ½ months old when I was able to bring him HOME. During the entire process, I was kept up to date by the Greenberg's and the foster family in Guatemala, both on the adoption process and how my son was doing. I received many, many pictures and updates on how he was doing, and after each Doctor checkup. The Greenberg's made the most important thing in my life so easy. They were always there for any questions or concerns. They explain each step of the process to me and let me know what the next step was. I am forever grateful to the Greenberg's for giving me the most amazing gift in my life - MY SON! If you should chose adoption, my advice is chose someone you can trust and has the experience and knowledge to make it a great experience. That to me is the Greenberg's. My sincere thanks to the Greenberg family for bringing my son HOME!"
