When our firm’s founder Brian Rubin began practicing special needs future planning, he drew on his personal experience. Brian’s son Mitchell has autism and other diagnosed special needs. He was born in 1981, and Brian has focused solely on helping Illinois families of children and adults with special needs ever since.
At Rubin Law, working with our clients is a family affair. Mitchell’s brother Benjamin “Benji” Rubin joined the firm as an attorney in 2010. Mitchell’s sister Nicole Rosenthal has worked as office manager and legal assistant for the firm since 2001. Mitchell’s mother Linda Rubin also joined the firm in 2001 as a legal assistant. Mitchell himself works at the firm once a week greeting our clients and shredding documents, among other tasks.
We have experienced all the trials and tribulations that fellow families of individuals with special needs weather on a daily basis, plus the difficulties of long-term planning. When you come to our firm for help, you can trust that we will listen to your questions, understand many of your concerns, and anticipate your future needs. Indeed, we might not have offered the range of services we do today without everything we have learned from our journey with Mitchell and the other people with special needs in our lives.
When you visit our firm for an initial office consultation, you can expect to meet with us for approximately two hours to discuss your personal family situation, your existing estate plan, government benefits, state programs and services, and much more. We can recommend estate planning steps and later, draft documents appropriate for your situation. Finally, and unlike most other law firms, if we complete your estate plan we will answer your follow-up questions and advise you of changes in law, questions about government benefits, group homes, day programs, among other services for children and adults with special needs.
Rubin Law is the only law firm in Illinois exclusively limited to providing compassionate special needs legal and future planning to guide our fellow Illinois families of children and adults with intellectual disabilities, developmental disabilities, or mental illness down the road to peace of mind.
