Greenberg Law

309 Court Avenue, Suite 210

Des Moines, Iowa 50266


I am Elena Greenberg, a Des Moines family law attorney who provides compassionate, aggressive legal representation to clients in the Greater Des Moines area. Through my law firm, Greenberg Law, I maintain a general practice with an emphasis on family law problems.

Criminal Defense Representation

I represent clients who have been charged with misdemeanors, serious misdemeanors, aggravated misdemeanors or felonies, including domestic violence, OWI/DUI/DWI, driving while barred/suspended, theft, assault, drug possession (contraband, paraphernalia, prescription drugs), and other charges.

Assistance in a Comfortable Setting

My office is a place where you can feel comfortable telling me about your situation in a confidential setting. I will not judge you, and I will be honest with you about your legal options. I want you to have realistic expectations regarding the likely outcome of your case so that we can establish a good working relationship. Although I want you to feel comfortable talking to me, I also want you to know that I will aggressively protect your rights.

When I need to, I will be a fierce advocate for you in the courtroom or negotiation room to make sure that your interests are represented.
