Founder & Managing Partner

Jeffrey Rubinton founded Rubinton Law and Associates in 2012 after more than two decades of representing clients in a wide range of civil and commercial actions, on both the state and federal level. With a history of practice areas that includes economic crime, consumer fraud, environmental claims litigation, and all aspects of insurance litigation, Mr. Rubinton draws upon his diverse experience to deliver the highest level of representation possible to his clients in Florida and across the country.

 

Mr. Rubinton has defended complex, class action federal lawsuits involving Chinese drywall and also played a pivotal role in prompting the professional regulatory board in Florida to pursue experts for fraud and misrepresentation in numerous eight-figure commercial property insurance defense cases.

 

Prior to establishing Rubinton & Associates, Mr. Rubinton served as a staff attorney for Legal Aid Service of Broward County before accepting the position of Senior Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida. He gained significant trial experience during this time-frame as lead counsel for notable cases including the Department of Legal Affairs v. Father & Son Moving & Storage, Inc. and Department of Natural Resources et al. v. Kawama Club Condominium.

 

Mr. Rubinton was also counsel to the State of Florida's Oil Spill Response Team and handled claims for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. He previously served as a member on the Law Enforcement Coastal Protection Statutory Review Committee, the National Association of Attorneys General Environmental Task Force, and the South Florida Chapter of the League of Environmental Enforcement and Prosecution, where he was appointed as Committee Chair in 1992.

 

After several years of practice in state-wide insurance defense litigation and claims, Mr. Rubinton became a subject matter expert who is frequently called upon to lecture on issues of insurance bad faith, premises liability, comparative negligence, environmental causes of action, and unfair and deceptive trade practices.

 

It was during this time period, in an effort to branch out on his own to offer more comprehensive, customized representation to his clients, that Rubinton & Associates was established and thrives today.
