Mr. Rubenfeld is a man of compassion, integrity, vast experience and an exceptional knowledge of the law. Just like his father, Michael is an
outstanding attorney who is capable, meticulous, and diligent.
I first met Michael a few months ago to discuss my child support case. Not only was he able to assure me that We would be successful, but the final results exceeded my expectations.
I feel fortunate to have Michael as my legal counsel. When you retain Michael's services you not only secure the best legal representation you can have , but you have a great compassionate, supportive and knowledgeable friend. He is very accessible and has a great office manager, Joan, who is very knowledgeable and welcoming.

Michael Rubenfeld handled both my divorce case and then a custody issue several years later. When I initially retained Michael, I knew that my case was going to be difficult because my ex-spouse is not an easy person to deal with and my children's well being was my top priority. Michael reassured me that he would take care of me and my children. Michael's calm demeanor always made me feel comfortable. He handled my divorce in a very timely manner and responded to my phone calls, texts, and emails immediately. He even met me in the office on a Saturday morning because I could not get off from work. After several years my ex needed to move out of town and wanted to change his visitation place, days and times. Michael once again handled this case quickly and calmly. He immediately contacted my ex and handled the situation without the need to go back to court. Michael is a very easy person to talk to and he took the time to listen to what I had to say. He gives excellent and useful advice. His office staff are very caring and friendly. I was always greeted with a friendly voice or smile. I have recommended him to several of my friends. I highly recommend Michael Rubenfeld as an excellent and compassionate divorce attorney and human being.

When I first met Mr. Rubenfeld, I was nervous of what I was getting into. He explained everything to me in intricate detail; anything I did not understand was reiterated so that I did. He was very personable and treated me with the utmost respect. He is extremely detail oriented and leaves no stone unturned. All of my friends and colleagues told me horror stories about their divorces and how their attorney left things out; not Mr Rubenfeld! He thinks of everything from every angle, and explains his strategy to you. He is impressively knowledgeable when it comes to matrimonial law. I was very impressed with how he kept me in the loop on what was going on in a timely manner. His staff is a reflection of him as well, very helpful and knowledgable. I could not have asked for a better attorney. I highly recommend him.

I endorse this lawyer. Michael Rubenfeld is one of the most genuine and compassionate attorneys I have ever met. His calm and thoughtful nature are an asset in the negotiation process. It is a pleasure to have him as opposing counsel .
