  • Alan Bendix Rubenstein

    I have known Jonathan both personally and professionally for almost 20 years. He is a tenacious and effective advocate for his clients. When we are not adversaries, I often discuss legal issues with him and rely on his excellent judgment. I am acquainted with many lawyers as a result of years of practice, but if I needed a lawyer myself, Jonathan would be the first to whom I would turn.
