Joseph Scott Rubin

About me

          In my 32 years of law practice I have had extensive litigation and non-litigation experience in motor vehicle accident cases, Workers' Compensation, medical malpractice, Social Security disability, criminal, probate and Family Law matters. We have attained settlements and judgments of millions of dollars in cases involving injuries to our clients in vehicular crashes, unnecessary surgeries, nursing home neglect and at-work injuries. I have been the principal of The Rubin Law Firm since leaving my first firm in 1989, and have been awarded the Martinedale-Hubbell "A-V" (highest) rating by fellow lawyers and judges as to my legal ability and ethics every year since 2002 (more than 12 years running). This designation is designed to attest to "preeminent" status amonst lawyers in the community and is, by all accounts, a much more accurate and less subjective rating than any client or attorney testimonials given by other sources as it is the private and undisclosed rating of lawyers AND JUDGES familiar with my work.  I can and do assure every client the highest commitment to excellence in the work we do for them.

         I am a graduate of DeSmet, Jesuit High School in St. Louis, Washington University in St. Louis (Prince School of Business Administration) and St. Louis University School of Law(1984, cum laude).

        Our ethic and mission statement is summed up in our motto: "Helping People Find Higher Ground."  Call us today at 636-916-3300 so we can put our extensive experience and commitment to work for you.
