Steven D. Greif is a Partner of Goldman Horowitz & Cherno, LLP.
Steven D. Greif graduated from Tufts University in 1973, and from Boston University School of Law in 1976. He was admitted to the New York Bar on March 3, 1977; and admitted to the California Bar on May 31, 1979. Mr. Greif is admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for the Eastern District and the Southern District of New York.
Mr. Greif has represented clients in hundreds of depositions, trials, arbitration hearings, and criminal hearings in Federal and State Courts throughout the Boroughs of the City of New York, and in Nassau County and Suffolk County. He has also conducted thousands of Arbitration Hearings and rendered thousands of decisions in No Fault cases under the auspices of the American Arbitration Association.
In addition to the emphasis on Commercial Litigation and Collections law, Steven D. Greif’s practice has also included substantial involvement in such matters as Copyright infringement litigation, Landlord-Tenant cases, Personal Injury cases, Matrimonial Law and Family Court matters, Bankruptcy Court filings and Adversary Proceedings, Real Estate transactions and litigation, and Title Insurance litigation.
From 2012 to 2019 Mr. Greif was an Arbitrator appointed by the Department of Financial Services of the State of New York under a program managed by the American Arbitration Association to resolve No Fault Insurance disputes. He held Arbitration Hearings once a week, usually hearing 15 cases per day. Arbitration awards were then issued within 30 days. The issues usually involved the medical necessity of the medical and related services rendered to car accident victims, and less frequently, the issue of compliance with the procedural rules and regulations of New York law as it pertained to No Fault. Deciding a No Fault case required reviewing extensive medical records submitted by the medical provider in support of payment and the insurance company’s records showing the lack of medical necessity of the treatments and the basis for their contention that no payment was due the medical provider.
Steven D. Greif has perfected and argued three (3) appeals before the Appellate Divisions of the First and Second Department.
Mr. Greif has lectured before the Nassau County Academy of Law and the National Business Institute on Collections Law and Commercial Litigation. For fifteen (15) years, Steven D.
