My case is not finished yet, but I had to switch attorneys hastily because my first one did nothing to prepare me for my first divorce hearing. My husband is a lawyer and he hired a bulldog, and despite the fact that I filed for divorce because he's an alcoholic that I can't live with anymore, the judge set us in a temporary nesting situation, which was horrible! Rubin righted everything at the next hearing and now I have the house and the kids. I know he has my back and I can't wait for this to be over.Mar 1, 2016Verified
Caring lawyer, great team, awesome at handling nasty divorces. He will fight for you, happy I chose him.Jan 7, 2015Verified
Mr. Rubin the only lawyer I've had since 2017, the beginning of my divorce, and this is the second round and worse than the first. I completely trust him. He let's me know when things will not go the way I want and let's me know when everything will be in my favor. He is honest and trustworthy. He is very blunt and doesn't sugarcoat anything and that's exactly what you need going though a divorce and custody battle with an abusive ex. I have referred him multiple times to friends and coworkers and he is the person I would go to if I had to do it all over again. He's the one I trust. Mr. Rubin and Nicol, his paralegal are a team and a force to be reckoned with. This has been the hardest 2 years of my life but Mr. Rubin assures me that he is on my side and also has done everything in his power to help me. He holds a special place in my heart because he is an angel. I haven't been the easiest client because it's painful and hard to go through it all but Mr. Rubin does his best and often times his best is all I'd hoped it would be. Thank you Mr. Rubin.Jan 13, 2020Verified
I was searching for a lawyer who have experience with someone that could help a woman like myself, whom has always been under the control of her husband for over 32 years. I have a special needs child with autism that needs full time care. My soon to be ex-husband never included me in any of the decision making or given me knowledge of his salary or what was in all unknown accounts... I was utterly & completely illiterate in money. I was not allowed to open or pay the bills or even ask about them. I was never allowed to balance the check book or once stepped into our bank for over 30 years. Because I trusted him to take care of things that he insisted to take care of.... I met him at age 14 so I was very naive about money and pretty much most things. When his OCD issues got unbearable to live with him any longer & I could not breathe...and the fact we already did marriage counseling years earlier and nothing ever changed...I wanted a divorce. I contacted several lawyers but Mr. Rubin was the ONLY one who responded to me & took the time needed to answer all my questions immediately. He did NOT ask for one dime to do that for me as all the other ones did. I found Mr. Rubin to be very sincere & genuine and cared....NOT just someone wanting money before they could even answer one question of mine which felt very incompassionate to me, with the despair I was in at the time. I read many positive reviews online from women such as myself who were SO grateful to him, fighting for them that it just felt right for me to choose him. I NEEDED someone to fight for ME! I never had control over anything in my marriage so I was very scared over what the outcome would be or if I could care for my daughter as she deserved. Mr. Rubin eased all my worries & then some! I found Mr. Rubin pretty intense initially because of all the questions asked from me..and being so overwhelmed. I had been with my soon to be ex for 32 years so was an emotional mess when I filed for divorce. BUT....by him asking all that needed to be asked he was able to gather EVERYTHING he NEEDED to help fight for me!! Mr. Rubin taught me how to KEEP the facts so that he could fight for me more effectively.. Instead of me being overly emotional & falling apart ever few seconds like many women do. I finally GOT why I needed to stick to the facts...they spoke volumes and made it possible to get so much more info out! Mr. Rubin assured me constantly that he would take GOOD care of me and NOT to worry when I send him many long late night rants via email throughout this process. He clarified all the things that was making me anxious and I always ended up feeling better. I never had to second guess him forgetting one single fact about my case. His memory is perfect!! In court he was freaking BRILLIANT, SHARP & right ON top of my case to the end! All the facts he had already memorized without skipping a beat! Very reassuring & calming. Nothing calms a person more than having someone who really cares & FIGHTS for you without hesitation. Mr. Rubin remained on top of the ALL the facts so all antics from husband's lawyer were shot down in flames, It was amazing to watch.... He was a Rock Star!! They never were able to rebound whatsoever because it was mute! Karma. In getting the temporary orders signed Mr. Rubin was able to get me the maximum child support & alimony while my daughter & I get to remain in our home. My soon to be Ex-husband will still pay for many of my child's needs and I will not be tied to him any more. Mr. Rubin is a dedicated lawyer and is making sure I receive exactly what I deserve so that I can take GOOD care of my autistic daughter which is my number ONE priority! Mr. Rubin saw right through what my husband's lawyer was "trying" to do to me and he did NOT allow it whatsoever. NIPPED IT ASAP!! Just brilliant! My husband wanted me to believe we were living paycheck to paycheck....I never questioned him. I found out in discovery he made at least 3X more than I thought and yet I lived like a pauper our whole marriage. He also tried to state earnings that were much less but my lawyer had evidence proven otherwise! There were many mistakes my husband had to admit to that my lawyer called him out on! My soon to be EX should be ashamed for what he attempted to do to me. If I had not had Mr. Rubin fighting for me I would of been blindsided and just signed away whatever they asked while getting way less than I deserve from being so conditioned to keep quiet and never ask for anything. Now I will get to live a full life finally FREE to be ME and not under the control of any one any more! Empowered for the first time in my life thanks to Mr. Rubin! I could not of chosen a better lawyer. I am so grateful of his knowlege in knowing how to fight for someone like me, who always felt SO helpless with no power or strength to stand up for myself. It is still not over but I am very confident that all will work out for me just as he promised. He never let me down! Please do not hesitate in choosing Mr. Rubin to handle your divorce. He knows what he is doing very well and born to fight for women like me who are not able to fight for themselves. ShelleyJul 19, 2015Verified
My husband filed for divorce, I had no clue what to do and where to begin, I reached out to quite a few divorce attorneys, a few responded but after listening to my financial situation that my ex husband left me in, I was told what their fees were to hire them, and that was it, Mr. Rubin then contacted me asked me for the background about my situation and after listening to me, He told me right away he would represent me and I can give him anything I could come up with, That was the first time I felt that there was someone who really cared to help me, from that point on, I've never seen a lawyer so prepared and determined to fight for the rights of his client, I was amazed watching him in action fighting for me, So I am informing anyone that needs a aggressive lawyer that will fight for what is right for your situation, regardless female or male Please contact him first. Thank You Mr. Rubin For Everything You've Done and Made Sure Justice Was Delivered for Me.... Charlotte CelestineJul 17, 2015Verified
