Attorney Sanford Rubenstein, the senior partner at the law firm of Rubenstein & Rynecki, is one of New York's most sought-after advocates for victims' rights in personal injury and civil rights matters. Described by the Melvin M. Belli Society of the American Trial Lawyers Association as one of the nation's 25 top trial lawyers, he has been described by New York Post’s Page Six as “a high powered personal injury lawyer” and by the New York Daily News a “famed attorney.” He has also been called a “legend” by television host Wendy Williams.
Rubenstein has handled numerous multi-million dollar high profile cases in which he has represented victims in tragic occurrences in New York City including the police torture of a man who was sodomized by a New York City police officer in a police precinct bathroom for which he got a $8.75 million dollar settlement and the fifty shot police shooting that killed one man the night before his wedding, and wounded his two friends settled for $7.15 million. He also obtained the highest settlement for negligence and malpractice in the State of New York for 2012, a $17.9 million dollar award for negligence and malpractice for a woman who suffered the amputation of her hands and feet.
Appearing frequently on national and local TV News, he has been quoted in all of New York’s daily newpapers. Rubenstein has been a guest advocating victims rights on Good Morning America, Larry King Live, Geraldo at Large, Inside Edition and Montel.
He has appeared as a legal analyst on CNN, Fox and MSNBC. Rubenstein has lectured and participated in panels for the New York State Trial Lawyers, The Harvard Law School Criminal Justice Institute, Brooklyn Law School and the Melvin M. Belli Society of the American Trial Lawyers Association.
He is the author of a book entitled “The Outrageous Rubenstein” in which he writes about his experience as a media savvy trial lawyer fighting for justice and change.
A Profile of him published in the American Bar Association Periodical “Minority Trial Lawyer” described him as follows:
“Prolific, legendary, change-maker, and outrageous are all accurate descriptions of the renowned civil rights attorney based in New York, Sanford Rubenstein. For over 40 years, Rubenstein has fought tirelessly to preserve and protect the rights of everyday persons who fall victim to wrongful acts of law enforcement, municipal entities, corporations, and individuals, by pursuing the dispensation of his unique brand of ‘civil’ justice.” And said, “Rubenstein’s career has been punctuated by many heart-wrenching, high-profile cases in which he has prepresented countless victims of wrongful acts. Yet, it is Rubenstein’s mastery of the trial outside of the courtroom – under the scrutiny of a jury comprising the press, the public, and policymakers – that sets him apart from other civil rights attorneys.”
