About Me

Attorney Steven L. Rubin has been in training for his dream job, to be an attorney, since he was 5 years old.  His trustworthy, shoot-from-the-hip, “pull no punches”approach is appreciated by clients.   Most of his passion stems from the fact that Steve knows what it’s like to sit on the other side of the desk.


While Steve was in law school, his mother was diagnosed with ALS and given 6 months to a year to live.  He was thrust into a number of roles that his clients often find themselves in —caregiver, advocate, provider, and concerned loved one.


While his mom lost her battle to ALS, Steve vowed never to give up the fight.  He finished Widener School of Law and he has dedicated his career to helping his clients deal with tough issues -- such as medical malpractice, personal injury, death, incapacity, disability, special needs, social security, asset protection and taxes – and provide that assistance in the best and least stressful way possible. 


Attorney Rubin was born in New Haven and has been a life-long Connecticut resident.  He graduated from Cheshire High School, and the University of Connecticut (UCONN) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science.  While attending the University of Connecticut, Attorney Rubin was a member of the governing counsel for the Housing Board of Directors and the vice president of the Jewish Student Association.  He graduated UCONN a member of Phi Alpha Phi -- the national political science honor society.


Attorney Rubin then attended Widener University School of Law in Pennsylvania.  While attending Widener, he was a member of the Trial Advocacy Honor Society and participated in numerous Moot Court arguments.  He was also a founding member of the Animal Rights Legal Society and Treasurer of the Environmental Law and Policy Society, involvements that put into action his values and ideals.


Attorney Rubin has passed the Bar in Connecticut, New York, and Florida.  He is a member of the of organizations that reflect his career directions and active participation: Connecticut Bar Association; the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association; the New York Bar Association; the Florida Bar Association; the Connecticut Bar Association Young Lawyers; the Florida Bar Association Young Lawyers Division; the New York Bar Association Young Lawyers Division; New Haven Bar Association, New Haven Bar Association Young Lawyers; New Haven Bar Association Public Service Committee; the New Haven Bar Association Trusts and Estates Committee; Court Relations Committee; and a member of American Bar Association.


 


Attorney Rubin volunteers his free time at the Veterans Legal Clinic, providing free advice to veterans who otherwise could not afford legal representation.  When not working, Steven enjoys reading books, watching and attending sporting events, and spending time with his dog and family.  He is a fundraiser for the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association, and the American Cancer Society.  Attorney Rubin also volunteers his time at soup kitchens and other philanthropic activities.
