    Feinberg, who founded Feinberg Rozen, LLP in 1992, focuses much of his legal work on mediation and alternative dispute resolution. He is also an adjunct professor at the Georgetown University Law Center, Columbia University School of Law and at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University.
