The best!
David was recommended to me by a friend of mine when I was going through my divorce. At such a hard and confusing time, David helped put my mind at ease each time we spoke. He is very knowledgeable and down to earth. I always felt like he was working with me as a teammate to get me the best possible outcome for every situation. Him and his assistant are very responsive, and always kept me in the loop on every stage throughout the process. Highly recommend to anyone who may need services!

Prenuptial
My friend referred me to David. Absolutely awesome experience. Got a rapid first appointment to talk to David and his secretary was very pleasant. I appreciate his time and knowledgeable information. More importantly, his quickness in getting my prenump prepared was much appreciated. I would recommend David to everyone who needs an attorney.

David Dubin = lifesaver!
I highly recommend David Dubin for any family law case. He represented me in my custody case and was attentive and honest in all matters. I especially like that he was not a cut throat type and I felt he had my best interest at heart and fairly and ethically worked my agreement with the other party. I am so grateful to my friend who recommended David to me, so I want to be sure to say to all who read reviews, he was a total lifesaver for me and I am sure you will have the same experience when you choose David to represent you! Be well and lovingly carry on.

David Dubin is the lawyer you want!
I was seeking custody of a grandson with time issues as it was August and school was looming. David Dubin’s office was close by and had good reviews, so I went with him. Best decision ever! He is clearly experienced, knowledgeable, and is very personable. He explained the process thoroughly and took the time to answer my many questions. He returned my calls and e-mails quickly, even on a Sunday! I was able to get paperwork to the registrar before school started thanks to David’s sensitivity about the time constraints. I will use him again for any Family Law matter. I highly recommend him and will recommend him to anyone I know looking for a lawyer.

Excellent, knowledgeable attorney
Mr. Dubin "David" is very helpful, experienced and respectful attorney. I contacted him for a post marital issue. He was able to advise and assist me. In addition, his staff is very nice too! I feel if I had him as my attorney when I was getting divorced initially, I would have faired much better.

Amazing
David is honestly amazing. He has been doing this for a while and knows exactly what he is doing. He knows what is appropriate to file for and what is not; no unnecessary costs were shoveled out. He is compassionate and real. Having David as my lawyer was such a relief as this was my second lawyer I have turned to. I have recommended him to friends and they have been more than happy with him! I highly recommend!

David Dubin Review
Working with David eased my anxiety and stress during a difficult time. I highly recommend reaching out to and working with David as he spent quality time making sure I understood the divorce process and answered all my questions efficiently and effectively. Above all else, his knowledge of divorce law is superior and helped move the process along in the right direction. Not only was he my lawyer, but was there to listen as a friend, as he completely understood what I was going through.

Smooth and successful divorce thanks to David
David helped me develop divorce settlement and custody agreements. I consulted with multiple lawyers and chose David because he was the most experienced and knowledgeable in family law, and he made me feel empowered rather than defeated and afraid. He assured me that there would be a manageable financial plan. In the end, I am very happy with the agreements and my ex actually thanked me for helping the process go so smoothly, which was primarily thanks to David. David was super helpful and efficient with the paperwork. I could not have done this without representation and I recommend David to anyone going through a divorce.

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.

Highly Recommend
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.
