Someone Who Understands and Helps You Get Financial Relief

    It feels lonely to face health problems that stop you from working and leave you with money worries. If only someone would understand and help you get through this.

    Someone can: Vanessa Greenbaum.

    As partner and majority shareholder at Greenbaum Breuer & Associates, she has dedicated her career as an attorney to helping people win Social Security Disability benefits, giving them financial relief during some of the hardest times in their lives.

    For Vanessa, this is a mission she has known her entire life. Her father, Matt Greenbaum, founded the firm. Growing up, she saw how he used his law degree to help people who need help the most. She was inspired to follow in his footsteps.

    Greenbaum Breuer & Associates has now helped generations of people in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast get their Social Security Disability benefits and Medicare or Medicaid health coverage, and Vanessa represents the second generation of leadership at the firm.

    She handles Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) cases, including disabled widow and widower claims, disabled adult child claims and Medicare qualified government employee claims. She also represents Louisianans in Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims for adults and children, overpayment cases, and cases where the Social Security Administration (SSA) is trying to stop benefits.

    Vanessa takes pride in meeting clients one-on-one and providing the personal attention you deserve. Big, national law firms will not always do that.

    We are one of the most established disability firms in the New Orleans area, with the resources to provide strong representation.

    But we are also a family firm, helping your family.

    This is why we say, “For Generations, We’ve Gone to Greenbaum.”

    “Helped with a lot more than disability, she helped me as a person. She went above and beyond. I was always confident she was going to help through it all…knew exactly what we needed to get things fixed to keep it going, so we could get the outcome we needed…My family and I are so grateful for how much my attorney did for me.”
