I hired Mr. Rubin to represent me in a DUI case. He was extremely professional and knowledgable as well as easy to get a hold of whenever I had any questions. He really took the time to make sure that I understood all of my options throughout the case. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for representation.

Outstanding Advocate
Me Rubin was extremely knowledgeable and professional. Mine was a case involving multiple OVIs but he was able to secure a minimum sentencing recommendation from the prosecutor due to his tireless work on my behalf. Mr Rubin was able to effectively communicate the circumstances of my case to the city attorney which has allowed me to move through this very difficult time in my life and go in a positive direction. I cannot more highly recommend Mr Rubin. Thank you for taking the time to read this review..... P.S. his fees were very reasonable and he earned every penny.

A true professional works best to describe Neil Rubin- very timely with his client, has great knowledge of the law regarding Police and Citizen rights. On two separate occasions I hired Neil to represent my case and both times all charges were dismissed before they ever reached a judge. Thanks again Neil. -Chad G.

Criminal Defense for my son
I hired Mr. Rubin for the criminal defense of my son. I found him to be very knowledgeable and engaging in what was a serious and complicated matter. He diligently pursued all aspects of our case and had a very favorable outcome. He was also very reasonable with regards to fees. I interviewed several attornies and felt hopeless for a while that I could not afford to defend my son. The difference in fees is truly astounding for that profession. I will use Mr. Rubin for other matters as well. I found his Will prices incredibly reasonable.

Contracts and agreements Attorney | Jan 17
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Attorney Rubin exemplifies the very best attributes of an active attorney and a level of professionalism, confidence and skill we should all aspire to. Honesty, dedication and a love of the law, which means. giving back to others who lack our understanding of the law and a benefit from our inherent desire to provide solutions to problems. The thousands years of combined legal experience of professionals activity participating in this forum represent some of the very best of our profession, which is after all, at its base is desire to help those in need. This Attorney’s experience and knowledge, I believe, demonstrates that there is a desire to provide accurate advice and obtain appropriate results for clients. Most importantly, this Attorney is willing to help complete strangers (as is the case in this forum) with their legal problems for which we collectively provide useful information, thereby demystifying the legal process as much as possible. I would recommend this Attorney"
