Educational and Responsive
My experience with working with Mr. Rubin was smooth and educational. He not only listened to my concerns about my case, but provided me with options as to which direction to take for the best results. Mr. Rubin phrased the legal terms into examples that I could comprehend. If I need legal advice or to hire an lawyer in the furture, I would absolutley choose Mr. Rubin.

A LIFESAVER FOR SURE!!
Mr. Rubin is ABSOLUETLY the best he worked and worked on my case and for months and eased my stress with his jokes lol. But overall, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him if you're looking for a GREAT Lawyer, he explains to make sure you understand it and he takes his time with you, you can call/text him whenever you need him, and he responds back in a timely manner. I will be using him AGAIN and AGAIN if I ever find myself in a situation where I'll need an attorney again because again, he is the ABSOLUTE best :-)

Honest attorney
I met with Lawrence S. Rubin on 3/3/23 to discuss bankruptcy options. He is very straight forward and honest. He even threw in a few jokes or two lol. I was a nervous wreck about the whole process for I didn’t want to lose my home and he reassured me that everything will be fine. Thank you Lawrence for your awesome service.

I'm totally hard to please but Rubin is Top Notch
Expecting to get the runaround, unreturned calls or being dismissed. It was truly a surprise that there are attorneys that respect the solid old school ethics in their profession. Every interaction was productive. What I mostly appreciated was that he took time to explain the process. This was the most stressful period in my life and because of Mr. Rubin I have my house and car. He approached opposing attorneys as if it was his house and car on the line. Feel free to contact me with questions about my experience. I doubt if you find another attorney as knowledgeable, authentic and passionate as Lawrence Rubin.

Chapter 13 Gone Smoothly
After months of struggle and searching for someone to help me with unexpected financial issues, I found Lawrence Rubin. He helped me get through one of the hardest times of my life and was able to comfort me in the process. He did a top notch job with my Chapter 13 bankruptcy and guided me through every step of the process.

Debt collector
I reached out Mr. Rubin to get information about being sued by a debt collector immediately Mr. Rubin gave me great advice inwhich I hired him to pursue the case, in a matter of weeks Mr. Rubin had my case resolved and it over which I'm so grateful for. Mr. Rubin was a pleasure to work with, he promptly returned calls and emails, his price was affordable and I received the outcome he stated I would get, so I'm very satisfied with his work. Thank you again Mr. Rubin for your fine work. Kudos to you,

Larry is great at what he does and fights hard for his clients!
I hired Larry for my case back in 2019, we are still going through the motions and this is a slow moving lawsuit. Larry has always been professional and educational throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Larry Rubin to anyone who needs legal counsel.

Gave me my life back
Mr. Rubin helped me with a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing almost two years ago. I was drowning in debt and he helped work out a plan that was manageable that has really helped me put my life back on track. Mr. Rubin is very knowledgeable and personable and has been available whenever I have had questions or issues that need to be resolved over the past two years. I would highly recommend him if you are facing a similar situation.

Amazing results
I tried to resolve a dispute against the collection company and creditor on my own for 2 months, going back and forth without getting anywhere, to the point where I had almost given up. Then I hired Larry, and he was able to resolve the matter in my favor, in less than 24-hours. I found Larry to be highly professional, responsive, and effective in his area of expertise. Thank you Larry!

THOROUGH AND RESPONSIVE!!
I was struggling with my finances.....juggling daily life expenses, in addition to college tuition for my children. Backed into a corner and in danger of losing my home, Larry walked me through the necessary steps to avoid that. When you speak with him on the phone, or meet with him personally, as soon as you approve the submission of a document on your behalf, he has done it. I am grateful to him for all of his assistance and would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone.
