Bob Ruben along with partner Doug Peters were incredible! I was falsely accused of molesting my 4 yr old daughter by a jealous ex and they fought hard for the truth and won my case. What mattered most to me is that they genuinely cared about my case and what I was going through. Bob was always there to answer my questions, patient, understanding, compassionate, honest and loyal. He didnt just tell me what I wanted to hear but what I needed to hear.
Watching Bob work on the case pretrial was impressive in itself but watching him in action during the trial was incredible! He was well prepared during his direct and cross and in my opinion completely annihilated the state. He was likeable to the jury and hit on perfect points with each witness that took the stand for both the states side and ours to ensure the jury saw the truth.
Now a free man and seeking full custody of my daughter, I will always hold Bob dear to my heart for getting my life back and my daughters. He didnt just treat me as a client but as family.

I contacted Peters, Rubin and Sheffield about the defense of my grandchild. I talked to Foss Hodges. My grandchild had been charged with Shaken Baby Syndrome which had become murder along with several other charges. After giving Foss the history of the charges that had been filed Foss set up an appointment for our family members with Robert Rubin, Dick Peters and him self to discuss the aspects of the case and how to proceed. They were very willing to listen to our concerns and addressed each and every one of them. They kept us well informed as to their progress in revealing the facts about what had actually happened in our case. As their investigation went forward several meetings were held to keep us informed. I was totally impressed with their expertise down to the smallest aspects of the case and the importance of them. They reveled to us the prosecutions view of what had happened. I believe most important they found out what didn't happen that should have happened. All of their knowledge and hard work along with the impeccable expert witnesses they provided at trial resulted in not guilty verdicts. Robert and Foss showed concern not only for my grandchild but our family also. I cannot express how pleased and thankful my family are for Robert Rubin and Foss Hodges and the members of their team. We most highly recommend them for your legal needs.

Bob met with me the Sunday after getting out of jail. He was very professional and did not have to take on my case. He really seemed to care. He takes his job seriously and works his hardest to get the best possible outcome for your case. His partners at his firm are also stand-up men. I would never go to anyone but Bob... but first, I would stay out of trouble. He has received many awards and believes in justice for his clients.
When first meeting with Bob and after explaining everything about my case, he told me specifically, "Let me worry about this and you do everything you can to go on with your life positively." He really relieved my stress to a minimal, which I had a lot of stress, knowing that he was going to represent me.
My charges were dismissed thanks to Bob.

There is not enough space to say what a great lawyer Bob Rubin is when it comes to defending those who stand accused. Not only is he a great lawyer, but he is one heck of a person with a big heart. He is in my opinion phenomenal and you cannot go wrong hiring him or his firm.
