A Disability Lawyer Who Treats You Like Family

    Sometimes in life, we all need a little help. When you cannot work because of bad health and you’re running out of money, you want to find the right people to help you get back on stable ground.

    That is when you go to the Law Offices of Matt Greenbaum.

    Matt Greenbaum founded our law firm in 1982 because he saw that people needed a local Social Security Disability firm in the New Orleans area, and starting one would be a way for him to help the community.

    When he started, he was the only person at the firm. He went on to build one of the largest and most respected disability law firms in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast.

    He has helped tens of thousands of people get monthly disability income and Medicare or Medicaid health coverage, totaling millions of dollars in benefits.

    Matt now serves as an of-counsel attorney for the firm, consulting and advising other members of our team.

    He has five children, and a second generation of the Greenbaum family now leads the firm.

    We are a family firm, helping your family.

    Thanks to Matt, New Orleanians can say, “For Generations, We’ve Gone to Greenbaum.”
