Excellent
Christine Rubinstein has been my attorney for several years handling various legal issues as well as my family trust. I have found that Christine's years of experience enable her to provide thoughtful, thorough and most importantly, practical legal advice. She listens carefully to any/all my questions/concerns and is responsive and thorough. Her level of professionalism and sincerity is second to none!  I have NEVER been disappointed. I highly recommend Castiglia-Rubinstein and Associates.
