I have more than 38 years of experience in the immigration field, 5 1/2 years with INS in various capacities as an immigration officer and attorney.

During my years with INS I have prosecuted cases and worked at the airport examining arriving passengers for compliance with the immigration laws.  For the past 31 years I have been helping individuals through the complicated immigration system with my insight as to how the system works and determining what is the best way to accomplish their goals and objectives.

Excellent work, great representation
Mr Lubiner represented me for my immigration case from the beginning with appearance in front of the judge, through I485 approval and citizenship interview. He managed to execute brilliantly the representation in front of the immigration officer, leading him to approve my case with only details that we wanted to provide. Overall, a great strategy that I really needed after more than 15 years of waiting!

Client Review for Alan Lubiner, Esq
Alan Lubiner had been the trusted legal advisor of my previous firm and is the trusted legal advisor of my current firm. We use his and his team's counsel for both immigration and corporate matters. They have been very reliable and knowledgeable helping us traverse some complex situations.

Went in for a paid consultation with one of the lawyers
Went in for a paid consultation. Since Lawyer Lubiner is retired, I got a session with one of his partners. He had a very snobbish attitude, as I just wanted to get answers to my questions, I didn't point it out to him on the spot. If the office doesn't like people who only come for a paid consultation session, maybe they should let me know in advance, it would save me a trip, and the lawyer wouldn't be bothered to consult someone like me.

Response from Alan Lubiner August 5, 2018
We are glad that we were able to answer all your questions during the consultation. This is obviously the goal. However, we are sorry that your experience with Dennis was not to your liking. We aim to provide essential information and make you feel comfortable during the consultation. Dennis is a highly experienced immigration lawyer and valued member of the Firm. If he came across as aloof or snobbish, it certainly was not intended. We would be happy to address any other concerns if you contact us directly since the review is done anonymously.

Poor Service
I found out Alan M Lubiner on purchasing a new home through my realtor. I felt Alan is not serious about my work. I only spoke to him for 30 minutes over the phone and that's it. Neither Alan nor his assistant explain to me what I should do to request for a repair so I didn't put everything in writing all at once. If I send all my requests at one shot, I might have a chance to get all that I asked for. I felt Alan and his assistant didn't really pay attention to details and assumed that I am supposed to know everything. Most of the people only buy a home once or twice in his life and that's why we need a good lawyer to help you. If your attorney didn't care too much about you, I feel it's not worth it to hire him. It is Alan's responsibility to help me in this process, but he didn't. I closed my real estate deal in January, 2019 and Alan didn't even show up in the closing. He has assigned another attorney in his office to sit in there, but the other attorney never worked on my case. Neither Alan nor his assistant told me that he won't show up. I found out the minute that I walked into his office. I was extremely disappointed. I will never recommend anyone to go to this attorney. Alan is careless and I don't feel he pay enough attention to my case at all.

Response from Alan Lubiner May 10, 2019
Since this is anonymous I can't determine exactly which file this is, but the exact same review was placed on another site with what we determined was a phony name. When it comes to closings, our firm gives prompt, courteous and reliable service. We respond to all requests within no more than an hour. Many times I answer emails late at night and on weekends because I know that the transaction is important to the client. What we choose not to do is to renegotiate the contract. When it comes to repairs, there are experts that the buyer hires to determine what is necessary. Many buyers have the wrong idea of what an inspection is for and we try very hard to educate them so that they don't have unrealistic expectations. As far as me not being at a closing, sometimes there are conflicts in the schedule or a personal emergency, but an attorney from our firm will always be at the closing. If Mr. or Ms. Anonymous would like a specific response on their case they can call our office and identify themselves and give us the opportunity to respond.
