So, I try to speak in plain English, charge affordable rates, and write papers that people can understand. There is never a charge for the first meeting. That way, people can feel comfortable talking about their problem without focusing on their watch.

Last Will and Testament
David A. Rubin provided me with much needed advice and guidance as I expressed my wishes for how I wanted my property and life insurance to be shared among my children and family. He was so patient and kind toward me as I asked questions after questions. I did not feel rushed or hurried in my meetings and correspondence with him. David is clearly very experienced and wise in his field. I feel so much better knowing that my wishes will be honored as I have expressed. I am incredibly grateful for David's genuine sincerity to express for me a clear direction of my wishes.

Free Consultation was free and a real consultation!
My husband and I met with Mr. Rubin after the loss of his father because we had NO idea how to handle probate or anything that comes with the death of a loved one without a will. Mr. Rubin met with us and was incredibly knowledgeable and patient with out questions. We were very impressed by him and will be retaining him to handle our own will and trust in the very near future as a result of our meeting. It was unbelievably helpful to be able to sit down with him, free of charge, and actually obtain useful information so that we didn't feel so alone and uninformed. Office is conveniently located, receptionist was polite and Mr. Rubin didn't make us wait a minute. Much appreciated!

Estate Planning
We recently met with David as he is a affiliated with the Hyatt Legal group that is one of my benefits through work. David was extremely knowledgeable, listened to what we thought asked many questions and then advised us on a plan of action. He took time to explain why he recommended what he did and a few weeks later we now feel well prepared and well informed. I would highly recommend David.

An attorney with the right stuff!
I retained David to re-write my will, drafted by another attorney, in 2004. His expertise convinced me I needed a complete estate plan. He answered every question I asked clearly, completely, patiently. He raised questions I hadn't thought of and helped me find my own answers. He completed the plan within a reasonable time. He drafted amendments as needed and in 2014 we restated the entire plan. In the interim he helped find and resolve my homeowner's insurance claim that "fell through the cracks" when the agent processing it left the firm. He was diplomatic and congenial as he resolved the matter to my satisfaction.

David completed a full will/trust package including healthcare and general powers of attorney. He also helped us ensure our assets were titled correctly with proper beneficiaries designated. He was very pleasant to work with and provided good advice to my wife and I as we made our decisions. He is obviously very knowledgeable. We would highly recommend David.

Living Trust and Will Preparation
My wife and I needed to have our wills updated because we moved to Missouri from Pennsylvania and we needed to update some provisions (we last updated our wills in 2004). I participate in Hyatt Legal Plans at work and David is a member attorney. We decided to meet with David so we had a consultation. We were impressed from the beginning as he was very knowledgeable about Wills and provided us guidance for the information we needed to properly update our Wills. During the review, David asked very pertinent questions that precipitated a discussion about Living Trusts. A deeper dive into our financial net worth and life insurance benefits led to an understanding of the benefits of a Living Trust arrangement. We then proceeded to have David draw up the Living Trust and associated documents including Pour Over Wills that replaced our standard Wills. Again, David provided the detailed guidance for us to develop the needed information. He very clearly mapped out how the Living Trust works and all the steps we needed to take to insure we had the right protection. We are very happy with the outcome and would recommend David for this type of work.

Excellent Lawyer for Estate Planning
My wife and I hired David to help create our estate plan after we got married. He was very knowledgeable, helped us understand the process, what we needed and why and setup the proper legal documents. David also helped my wife's parents with their estate plan and helped us to amend our original documents after we had our first child. We feel confident we have the right structure in place and it gives us assurance we are doing the right things for our family's future. We highly recommend David!
