A specialist in mediation and alternative resolution, hedirected the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.

He wrote about his experiences in his book,What is Life Worth?: The Unprecedented Effort to Compensate the Victims of 9/11.
Since then Mr. Feinberg has worked on victims’ compensation for the tragic shooting at Virginia Tech and the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster, among others. He currently serves as the Special Master for TARP Executive Compensation (popularly called the "pay czar").
Mr. Feinberg is an adjunct professor at the Columbia University School of Law, University of Pennsylvania Law School, Georgetown University Law Center, New York University School of Law, and the University of Virginia School of Law.
His new book is called Who Gets What: Fair Compensation After Tragedy and Financial Upheaval.
