I have been practicing law since 1992 and am licensed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and admitted to practice in Federal Courts in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the District of New Jersey. Although my office is located in Jenkintown, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, I also frequently handle cases in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Philadelphia Counties.

I grew up locally graduating from Lower Merion High School and earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Pennsylvania. I then enrolled at Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, Georgia and received my Juris Doctor in 1992 when I graduated as a member of the Dean’s List.

David, I cannot thank you enough for the support (legal and emotional) you’ve given me throughout this crazy process. I know you have witnessed this process many times, and as it was new to me, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your reassurance and peptalks throughout this time. I will definitely say you are part of the reason why I’m in a better space today. With Gratitude, Kerri

Just amazing
David was an amazing human through this whole messy divorce process. My ex did not make this easy, and it was a complicated legal case with multiple moving factors. Not only was David swift and efficient in dealing with everything, when things got emotional and messy, he was compassionate, kind and reassuring. I would absolutely tell anyone to use him and plan on giving his name out to every woman I meet who is getting divorced. I could not thank him enough for hi amazing help and support.

Consulted about non-complex custody matter
David was prompt and thorough in assisting me the first time I called his office. He genuinely seems to care by setting plenty of time aside to listen, gather pertinent information and make sure his explanations were clear. I would have further worked with David but my case ended up falling under a different jurisdiction. David still went beyond by pointing me in a good direction, contacting various colleagues to provide me with trustworthy referrals and following up with me to make sure I did find a suitable attorney.

I can’t thank David Dubin enough during this difficult time during my life. His knowledge and experience of the law eased my stress and anxiety. His personal and approachable demeanor made me feel comfortable and not so overwhelmed. Throughout the entire process I was always informed, my phone calls promptly returned and all my questions and concerns were addressed. Thank you David for representing me in my divorce. It was truly a pleasure.

David came to me at a time when I thought that all hope was lost, but he appeared and lit the way through a dark time and brought us out the other end. I had just lost a case in family court and sought a new lawyer to appeal. David was one of several lawyers that I spoke with but I knew immediately that he was who I wanted to take the case. The other lawyers may have been ok but I got the sense that David actually cared and that meant something to me. The appeal was a long shot and eventually unsuccessful, but David always felt like my case was a good one and that we could win in the end and he made me a believer. In the end he was right. Through a lot of dedication, hard work and some nimble thinking David got us the best outcome that I could have hoped for. I walked away happy and so did my family. David took the time to listen and act on all the information and I could not have been happier with the outcome.

Choose David!
Like many others, I was in a very difficult situation during my separation and divorce. In the very least, it was an incredibly emotional time, wrought with anger and uncertainty. A bit rashly, I filed for divorce myself. In that, it became clear that I was unfamiliar with the global processes and nuisances of the Montgomery County courts. Frustrated, I reached out to David for help. Needless to say, I’m glad I did! When I hired David, he went beyond fixing my filing errors, serving as a mentor and coach throughout one of the hardest times in my life. At the end of the day, I’m extremely satisfied with the outcome of my case. David did a fantastic job writing a leak-proof custodial order that kept us out of the courtroom. If I need any future legal services, David will be the first I call. If you need an excellent divorce lawyer, I strongly encourage you to take full advantage of David’s amazing skill set!

Trustworthy lawyer!
I highly recommend David Dubin as a lawyer! A friend used him as a divorce lawyer and referred him to me since I wanted to get help creating a will. The process was painless, even though originally I was nervous about it. David did a phenomenal job explaining everything, and his sense of humor helped lighten the mood! My husband and I just welcomed our first child and so we wanted to make sure we had everything in order. David made everything very clear and we felt like we could trust him. He was also readily available for any and all questions I had! I never thought I could actually enjoy having a lawyer! You can’t go wrong with David Dubin!

David I. Dubin, Feedback
I contacted David to assist me with writing a letter to the Pennsylvania Alimony courts, to ensure that the alimony that was scheduled to stop April 2022 would no longer be withdrawn. David generated the necessary letter and provided it promptly to the courthouse for their review and action. He is my go-to lawyer!

Mr. Dubin is one of the best attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He really calmed me down and helped me navigate one of the most tumultuous times of my life. When I was worried, he calmly explained the scenarios. When I was feeling vindictive, he didn't feed the fire, he kept me calm and told me to focus on the whats best for my children. He achieved the best outcome possible outcome for me. He not only gave me legal advice, but was there to listen, and offered life advice when asked. I highly recommend him.

Highly recommended
After dealing with another lawyer for my divorce for 2 years that went no where I switched lawyers to David Dublin. He told me he could get my divorce done quickly and for a fraction of the price the other lawyer had already charged me. David is also extremely responsive whether it’s via email or phone, he makes sure he gets right back to you if he isn’t available at the time of call. He is very personable and made my divorce process easy and got it done in 3 months verse 2 years that my other lawyer was still doing nothing on.

Awesome Divorce Lawyer
During my research time, I called and spoke / emailed a few Divorce lawyers prior to working with David. It wasn’t even close after my initial phone conversation with David. I knew I wanted him to represent me. It just felt more then a business transaction during our conversation. Working with David Dublin was easy and delightful. I felt like I could trust him even though I didn’t know all the logistics or what to expect. David took me through every step along the way with paperwork, follow up emails and phone calls. David is passionate and genuinely makes every effort to communicate during the process. I highly recommend calling David Dublin for representation. You will not be disappointed.

Attorney David I Dubin
David Dubin has been our attorney for many years! We hired David back in 2011 to write our Wills, Medical Advanced Directives, etc. and who assisted my Dad (who has since died) with his Last Will and Testament as well as my Daughter’s Will. We have always found David to be an excellent attorney who truly cares about our needs. If there is a question(s) that he can’t answer, David will research and get the answers from other very reliable sources. David has always been honest and ethical which we found is an extremely important trait needed in an attorney! David is such a compassionate and honest attorney he has never overcharged for any of his fees, in fact he has always been forthright and upfront with no hidden costs to me or any of my family members. We highly recommend David for any attorney services! We trust David explicitly!!

David was extremely helpful and attentive to my needs and questions during this stressful process. He listened to my concerns and requests and did what he could for them. He was a great advocate for me and really made this process as tolerable as it could be. He also greatly respected my time and the constraints of my career. I am very thankful for being referred to him and for choosing him to represent me.

Highly Recommended Divorce Attorney!
WOW! I wish I have met Mr. Dubin in 2015 at the beginning of my divorce when I lived in Bucks County, PA. I moved to Florida in 2015 and hired an attorney in Bucks County and then could not afford an attorney to finish my divorce in 2017. Well that was a waste of time and things didn't go well on my end. December 2020 a friend told me to look at this website called AVVO for attorney's. So glad I did! After researching and looking at their ratings at 4.8 and higher. I decided to email Mr.Dubin after speaking to many other attorneys and they only cared about money and not helping me. My divorce was final in 2017 BUT PSA was never dated a time frame in which to to remove my name off the mortgage. I was going through a lot since moving to Florida, then a divorce and starting your life over after 21 years of marriage. After 6 months working with Mr. Dubin, the last piece of my divorce was finalized and that is ALL thanks to him. Mr. Dubin knew my ex husband was going to try all kinds of things and this may be a challenge but Mr. Dubin made me feel comfortable and that my ex wasn't going to get out of this one! NOT THIS TIME! Also thanks to a great judge in Bucks county, she was not playing at all. I have always said, "I just I would have found you back in 2015, I wouldn't be dealing with this now". We never met in person, our conversations were done by phone or emails. Communication was great and he made sure I was happy at the end. Normally I do not write reviews, I will this time because the last door of my past has finally closed!!! Now I can move forward in my life finally. Thanks a million, Mr. Dubin.
