About Me

Born in NY, I moved to Delaware in 1974 and attended Widener University Law School.  I've been practicing law since I was 25 years old.  Started my own practice in 1978, and have not worked for anyone since.  I have handled thousands of bankruptcy and consumer law cases, but I also have substantial experience with family law, criminal law, injuries and accidents as well as appeals.  My practice is primarily consumer and consumer bankruptcy law at present.

  • Richard E Weltman

    I have worked closely with attorney Rubin on a number of bankruptcy matters. He is well known for relentless client service and is truly knowledgeable about when bankruptcy is appropriate and the types of alternatives available--including chapter 13 and debt settlements--to protect client interests and assets. I have referred several clients to Mr. Rubin and would do so again without hesitation.

  • Michael P. Forbes

    I have had several dealings with Mr. Rubin. He is an excellent attorney. He is a great advocate for consumers and was the attorney who won a landmark decision in Pennsylvania that has routinely been sited on other cases on behalf of consumer's rights throughout the state. He has made appearances on my radio show and he is a great guest because he is full of knowledge and great humor! I highly endorse Mr. Rubin as one of the finest lawyers I know.
