Attorney Rubin has transitioned his family law litigation practice to “family law mediation” and “private special mastering.”  He has integrated into these avenues of “alternate dispute resolution” the characteristics of his family law practice in which he pursued client representation on a case- by-case basis, with attention to detail and his goal to forge settlement agreements reflecting his client’s best interests with his clients having a role of self-determination in the most beneficial outcome.

He also served on the Connecticut Family Law Bar Association’s Committee on Gender Bias and the Courts.  From 2002 through 2016, Attorney Rubin has been a continuing legal education speaker on the topic of family law practice for the New Haven County Bar’s yearly “Nuts & Bolts” seminar series.
