    • I recommend Reuben Donig.
    • I hired Reuben more than 3 years ago.
    • Reuben handled my Personal Injury matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    If you are looking for an outstanding Personal Injury attorney, look no further than Reuben Donig. Reuben represented my elderly mother, who suffered a broken hip and femur, hip-replacement surgery, and over a year of rehab in Assisted Living, due to the actions of a driver.

    Reuben far exceeded our hopes and expectations, more than tripling the dollar amount two other attorneys suggested we might achieve. He got us the maximum allowed by the Umbrella Policy of the driver ($500,000), in addition to the maximum ($125,000) allowed by my mother's own auto insurance. Additionally, he negotiated with Medicare to reduce the amount of their Lien by 22%, saving us $7,538, for a grand total of $632,538! Reuben clearly has a passion for justice in the form of fair compensation, and it shows in both the effort he puts forth and the results he obtains.

    During the year that we worked with him, Reuben was thoroughly professional, personable (also charming with a great sense of humor), honest, direct, hard-working and attentive to our case. He kept us informed with frequent communication by telephone and mail, and was always prompt and entirely responsive to our questions and calls. His staff copied and filed our copious quantities of documents, and he was always very well-organized and on top of all the details and status of the case. Additionally, they sent monthly statements of expenses incurred.

    Having never been involved in a law suit before, I was extremely reluctant to hire an attorney – especially after two other attorney's indicated that we would not achieve satisfactory results. After interviewing Reuben (who had been referred by another attorney), we felt much encouraged. There were several Yelp reviews – all very positive except for one troubling review. When I asked Reuben about it, he put my mind at ease by explaining the situation (without breaking confidentiality). I am convinced that we would not have received even a third of the dollar amount Reuben obtained, if we had used another attorney or filed the claim ourselves – which would have been substantially more work for us.

    I would be pleased to give a more personal reference, should you need a little encouragement in your decision to work with Reuben J. Donig. Just ask Reuben for my number, and either he or his helpful staff will get back to you.

  2. My problems became "our" problems

    I was badly injured in an car wreck in 2007. The insurance company tried to low ball me with a five figue deal. It was at that time, I searched the Internet for an car accident attorney. Mr Donig's site popped up and I felt after reading the information on his site, that he was my attorney. It didn't take long for him to go to work for me and I felt like something heavy had been taken off my shoulders. A few weeks later he came back with a six figure offer (more than 3 times the original) and we settled without having to go to court. He really saved me, especially since the rising cost of medical bills can bankrupt you very quickly. If your looking for an experienced attorney with personal attention, look no further than Reuben Donig.
