“It is crucial as a successful lawyer to be respected and trusted by the Court and clients for one’s professional ability, expertise, honesty and integrity. I’m committed to being an efficient and creative problem solver, capable of delivering quality work product at a reasonable cost. I am committed to serving as a mentor to our younger lawyers and helping them be all that they can be. Under promise and over-perform.”

Rubenstein’s practice of law allows and requires creative problem solving in difficult situations being faced by clients in all aspects of their life and business. Every day, he looks forward to presenting his clients with cost effective solutions that help them accomplish their goals and solve their problems.

Since 1981, Rubenstein’s practice has included a wide range of business litigation and transactions including commercial transactions and litigation, creditors rights and bankruptcy,  estate planning, business planning and energy law.

Rubenstein’s in depth experience began with the FDIC placing a national bank in Oklahoma City into recervership in 1982. This jump started Rubenstein’s career in representing creditors, committees, and trustees in complex chapter 11 bankruptcies from the real estate and oil and gas industries.

Throughout his 34 plus years of law experience, Rubenstein has acquired extensive experience in both state and federal courts, handling business and commercial litigation matters. His transactional practice includes commercial bank loans, buying and selling of businesses and business assets, stock sale transactions, real estate, and business formations.
