I hired this lawyer with recommendations of Legal Shield. I had to substitute him for following reasons:
1- he doesn't seem to get it together. After a conference call with the judge and opposing lawyer, he asked me to provide him for the same documents that I supplied him at our initial meeting. I asked him which documents did he review before the conference call.
2- all questions I ask of him were never answered. Before he answers any of my questions, he'll ask for replenishment. Example, I asked him why I wasn't advised to cross claim in the beginning of the case. He said we'll counter sue but I have to give him another $4000.
3- seemed like he doesn't listen to my needs. Example: opposing lawyer wants to settle, this lawyer asked me 3 times if I want to settle. I told him I don't want to settle for anything 3 times. I got billed for e mailing over and over for same response.
4- I felt like he didn't work for me, he seemed that he did favors for the opposing lawyer and in return the opposing lawyer will reciprocate in the future: an example of their correspondence:
I am preparing the discovery that I will be serving on your office. I intend to personally serve your office this Friday. I was wondering if you will be willing to accept service by email as though it was personally served on you? If not, its not a big deal, I’ll just hire an attorney service to personally serve it. Of course, if you agree to accept service by email, as though personally served, I will reciprocate in the future. Let me know.
Dear Mr. Lubarsky,
It was a pleasure speaking with you yesterday. Thank you for agreeing to be served with the discovery by email, as though personally served.
5- I have to examine the bill very carefully because he charged 2 times for same task.
. 6- the last bill after the Substitution of Attorney there was an unearned balance in trust in the amount of $1060.87. I asked for the whole refund but I only got $163 back.
I just want this review to be a warning to everyone and at the same time help them not to make the same expensive mistake I made when I hired this lawyer.

If your engagement with Lubarsky is based on flat fee, you may be surprised later, at least I was.
Our flat-fee engagement covers everything up to, excluding, jury trial. But Lubarsky asked me for 2X more even for pre-trial and would not do any work that he is supposed to without additional payment. Disgusting.
I ended up terminating the contract with Lubarsky and hired another attorney.
