Ben has a fine sense of case dynamics and led me to a settlement beyond what I had expected. He is a pleasure to work with.
If anyone has any doubts about Ben, don't. If Ben takes your case, consider yourself lucky. You will have one of the smartest, most legally savvy attorneys in the medical malpractice universe. Ben worked tirelessly preparing for my case, and came to trial with a flawless medical understanding, documented with beautifully illustrated posters. More importantly, he came prepared with a watertight legal strategy, yet he remained flexible, quick witted, and fast enough on his feet to switch strategies mid-trial due to changing circumstances. His remarkable memory enabled him to shred the other attorneys at every turn, and he was clearly better prepared than the entire opposing legal team. He made their star witnesses (doctors) look incompetent, and punched holes in their testimony. But what made Ben really effective was his genius at handling the jury. Towards the end of the weeklong trial the judge called me into his chamber and begged me to settle with the insurance company, so afraid he was that we were going to end up with nothing. He told me that he was convinced the jury was not on my side. But the judge was dead wrong- the jury gave me an award that broke NY State records. And just as important, Ben did a fantastic job in post-trial negotiations when the insurance companies once again tried to play hardball with us. It took another long hard day of negotiations, but Bend didn't cave, and ended up with a wonderful package. One more thing... Ben became like a brother to me and a step dad to my children, a true friend who is there when we need him, a friend I hope to have the rest of my life. I will never be able to thank him enough for what he has done for me and my family.
The results speak for themselves, yet the means of attaining the results define Mr.Rubinowitz's approach to achieving a way to justifiably find closure to moving on in life with dignity, through equitable assesment and representation of the case in a court of law. His attention to detail and preparation carry and present the needs of the client. Aiding and empowering with an insight of what can be accomplished through the legal system. Instead of being viewed as a detail in a portion of the case, the client is presented with the best opportunity as the focus of the case. Mr.Rubinowitz's abilities in the courtroom represent and reflect years of experience providing the most reasonable, and realistic of results. When one's own life has sustained irreparable damage and decreased quality of life and your case is placed under scrutiny before the eyes of the law the best representation is the best defense, Mr. Rubinowitz's representation in defense is what made a difference in depth of scope of my case being evaluated before my peers "beyond a reasonable doubt in my favor". Thus attaining justified compensation and the best possible solution to what has been personally lost beyond restoration.
Ben worked extremely hard on my case, and ultimately was very successful. I consider him a friend, and heartily recommend him to anyone in need of his services.
