What others have said about Hon. Ellen R. Greenberg



Comment #: NY9383
Intitially I felt that Judge Greenberg was unnecessarily tough and hard. I ended up settling my custody case in the hallway, against my wishes. At the close of our case, Judge Greenberg spoke very caring and compassionately. She said how our daughter was conceived in love and that my x and I need to make peace for the well being of our children. She said how we don’t want to be in court, it’s stressful. My x made a comment after her “from your mouth to gods ears”. Judge Greenberg could see his phoniness and yelled at him, “that is exactly what I am talking about.” Under her tough shell, she is a caring person. Just be honest and be yourself in court. KE My x was violent and verbally abusive we had a history of protective orders.

I was involved in a custody case where the other parent threatened to kill me. Judge Greenberg and her guardian for the child said well there was no threat to kill the child and either parent can have custody.

Now that should not be a family court judge.
