Amazing!
The very first time I spoke to Eric about my case was the very first time I felt optimistic about our wrongful death case and that my family and I were in good hands. Not only is Eric a remarkable attorney but he has a conscience and will fight for what is right. I can go on and on about how much a great attorney he is and his compassionate moral character, but there is simply not enough time in the day.

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.

He returns messages, and tells you the truth
There are reasons that high profile attorneys get to where they are. Eric Dubin returned my email in less than 24 hours. After a short (free consultation), he was immediately honest in saying it wasn't his area of expertise. But he supported me, and even sent words of encouragement, such as "hang in there." PI attorneys get a bad rap from time to time, but there are people like Eric who could (given his well documented trial skills) win probably any case. But he didn't try to be everything to everybody. He was kind, honest, and most of all replied. In fact of all of the attorneys I consulted the one thing that sets these premier attorneys apart is that they actually do call you back. After finding out that a black mold case is not his strongest suit, he never the less was kind, encouraging, and took time to respond to me. By contrast one other supposedly preeminent black mold attorneys who was referred by another attorney (who even made a call on my behalf to get the specific name of the attorney to call, never returned a phone call, nor an email, nor did I ever get an email after filling out one of those utterly annoying "chat now" messages. I've followed Eric's career, and he doesn't talk the talk. He's brilliant, he cares about people, and he is responsive. I hope that I never need an attorney in the areas where he truly excels, but I would go back to him in a moment, and I'd refer him to anyone injured, or unjustly treated.

Eric is a tireless fighter for those he represents!
We hired Eric Dubin to represent us for the wrongful death of our disabled son. Eric treated us with the utmost respect and compassion. Even though he remained sensitive towards us, Eric was a fearless warrior, willing to fight until justice was served. We found Eric to be professional, diligent, bluntly honest, and a creative out-of-the box thinker who was willing to work day and night when needed. We would strongly recommend Eric to anyone who is looking for an attorney who is willing to go the extra mile and has the knowledge to do so. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! M and M

Eric is a Lawyer with Heart
If I had three words to describe Eric, they would be...he "never gives up"! Eric stuck by me and believed in my case. He fought with conviction, compassion, integrity, and selflessness. He never gave up on me. He hung in the ring and fought hard for justice. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone who needs an attorney with a wealth of knowledge of the law but also fights with a big heart! From the bottom of my heart, thank you Eric! Julie

Lawyers that get results, I found one.
Eric, Reviewed my findings regarding a touchy Trustee Foreclosure Sale that should not have happened. My company with the information supplied should have been able to delay a Trustee Foreclosure Sale. That was not the case and now we are moving forward to pursue the bank for a full reconveyance, because of anomalies we proved to the Trustee prior to the sale. Eric offered to Pro Bono our cause for some free advise and was very enlightening with his input. Very refreshing to see that helping comes first for some attorneys.

A BRILLIANT AND METHODICAL MAGICIAN
Eric Dubin is a true professional. He is blunt and to-the-point and does not dance around issues. He is very ethical and presents everything in an easy-to-understand way. He is gentle with clients and ferocious with opponents; planning his moves like a fox and attacking like a pitbull.
