Ms. Rubinoff represented me several years ago during an escalating employee/employer dispute with Patelco Credit Union. Her calm disposition put me at ease during a very frustating period. She asked excellent questions during the fact-finding stage. She pushed me to be candid where I was concerned that the truth might not help me. She provided me with a map for securing closure in my relationship with a former employer.
I was immediately impressed with how quickly she responded to messages even if she was only advising me that she would be unavailable for a while. I was kept current on all communications between her office and the employer's attorneys. Ms. Rubinoff helped me to organize my thoughts and articulate my percieved harm. In addition she was able to help my then wife feel comfortable with the legal process as well. We did not walk away from the negotiations with large amounts of money and that never seemed to be her focus; we walked away with my dignity firmly in place having been represented in the most professional and aggressive way possible , given my individual circumstances.

Stephanie worked as an associate for my former partner and I for a number of years in the 1980s, early in her career. She was a fast learner, a tireless advocate and a compassionate counsel to her clients. Following her employment with my firm, Stephanie went on to become partner at Horowitz & Rubinoff, and since that time has carved out a significant legal career of her own. Her work on Mize-Kurzman v. Marin Community College District did much to further define the protections as they apply to workers who believe that a wrongdoing has occurred. A true champion of worker’s rights. I would give her my highest recommendation.
