By order of the Supreme Court dated June 27, 2019, Greenstein was suspended for three years. Greenstein hired a bookkeeper, who was recommended by her then husband, the CFO of her law firm. She gave the bookkeeper signatory authority over her trust account and did not conduct a background check. A background check would have uncovered a criminal record for theft. The bookkeeper misappropriated over $100,000 from Greenstein’s trust account. After becoming aware of the thefts, Greenstein made immediate efforts to repay all monies that were misappropriated.
Any persons having knowledge bearing upon Greenstein’s fitness or qualifications to resume the practice of law should contact Cheryl L. Soler, Paralegal for The Florida Bar, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
