Amazing and thorough work by Jeff
Jeff went far beyond our expectations helping a relative with a felony case and probation issues. The situation was somewhat complicated because the relative lives out-of-state, but the case was Los Angeles-based. Jeff was able to negotiate favorable results. He was quick to respond to all questions and returned to court on a number of occasions to further deal with the matters. He was extraordinarily fair with his time and kept us updated every step of the way. We are thrilled with the work Jeff did on behalf of our relative and recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone who is dealing with a criminal case.

Truly an expert. Amazing attorney, better man.
I really enjoyed working with Jeff on my case. He is very knowledgeable about DUI's and got my case dismissed quickly. Jeff is easy going, and understanding, and responded to my emails the same day. I was frantic when I got arrested and certain I was going to lose my career.. I am extremely grateful to say I still hold my position at work, and my life is finally back on track - THANK YOU, Jeff, for all of your help.

Jeff Goes Above and Beyond and Truly Cares
I live in another State. It was recently necessary for me to hire a criminal attorney in California. After interviewing several candidates that had been recommended to me I retained Jeff Rubenstein. Not only was Jeff knowledgeable about the applicable law, its practical applications, and the Court system but he was aware of pending legislation that was on the governor's desk that might have affected the outcome of the case. Even the judge before whom the case was pending was not aware of this. Not only was Jeff "extremely professional" but he went above and beyond in truly caring about the client and his welfare as a person, instead of as just another case. Should the need ever arise again I would hire Jeff in the blink of an eye.

Excellent results from Jeff
I recently had a close relative get into trouble in the Los Angeles area. I am a lawyer myself (not in California) and was once a prosecutor with the Organized Crime Task Force, so I understand what can, and should, be expected of a defense attorney. Jeff was always quickly responsive, never over-promised, did what had to be (and could be) done and delivered a favorable result. He took a sincere interest in the client. I don't know what more one can ask.

Left me hanging
I hired Rubenstein for a domestic violence case and 2 days before the preliminary trial he withdrew from the case because I still owed him a portion of the money for his retainer. For weeks prior he ignored my calls and texts and did not provide proper counsel and the money I have paid him so far is not being returned to me. I was told if the judge wouldn’t let him off the case that he would have his incompetent assistant represent me in trial. Not very professional in my opinion.
