Attorney Rubenstein has been described as:
"High-powered personal injury lawyer."
Attorney Sanford Rubenstein, 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 and Hamptons Magazine as "One of America's best known lawyers," Mr. Rubenstein has also been characterized by the New York Post's Page Six as a "high-powered personal injury lawyer," and by the New York Daily News as a "famed attorney." NY personal injury attorney Mr. Rubenstein has also been called a "legend" by television personality Wendy Williams.
Rubenstein’s career has been punctuated by high-profile cases in which he has represented victims in many tragic occurrences in New York City, including a man who was sodomized by a New York City police officer in a police precinct bathroom while in police custody and the family of a West African man who was killed by a New York City police officer who was convicted of criminally negligent homicide. He represented victims in the Andrew Barberi Staten Island ferry disaster for both wrongful death and personal injury in NY. He represented the family of a victim who died as a result of the American Airlines Flight 587 crash. He also represented a young man who was the victim of a DWI driver whose compelling story resulted in toughening DWI laws in New York. He presently represents victims of the 50 police shot tragedy which occurred in Queens as well as the family of a Jamaican woman who died in the Kings County Hospital Psychiatric Emergency Room after sitting for over 24 hours in the waiting room. He also represents a Brooklyn woman who’s suing the City Emergency Medical Services and the Brooklyn Hospital Center for their failure to properly treat her and who, as a result, became a quadruple amputee and legally blind. Another client is the family of a teen inmate beaten to death at a Rikers Island Correctional Facility by violent inmate thugs allegedly supervised by corrupt guards.
Appearing frequently on national and local television news, Mr. Rubenstein has been quoted in all of New York's daily newspapers. He has been a guest advocating victim's rights on Good Morning America, Larry King Live, Geraldo at Large, Inside Edition and Montel.
