Sanford Rubenstein, Attorney
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.
