NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, has named Ben B. Rubinowitz as the 2013 New York City Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs "Lawyer of the Year."
After more than a quarter of a century in publication, Best Lawyers is designating "Lawyers of the Year" in high-profile legal specialties in large legal communities. Only a single lawyer in each specialty in each community is being honored as the "Lawyer of the Year."
This is in recognition of his history of helping people injured by the negligence and carelessness of others. Throughout his 30-year legal career, Ben Rubinowitz has made his mark as a leading trial lawyer combining hard work and dedication with his remarkable courtroom skills and presence. Mr. Rubinowitz began his career as a prosecutor, where he honed the trial skills that would become his hallmark. From there, he began serving as a trial lawyer representing severely injured plaintiffs in personal injury cases, eventually joining GGCSMB&R in 1989. Ben's meticulous approach to the preparation and trial of cases has produced 19 verdicts and 96 settlements in excess of one million dollars in cases arising out of car accidents, premises accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice, civil rights violations and products liability.
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
Steven Naifeh, President of Best Lawyers, says, "We continue to believe – as we have believed for more than 25 years – that recognition by one's peers is the most meaningful form of praise in the legal profession. We would like to congratulate Ben B. Rubinowitz on being selected as the 2013 New York City Personal Injury Litigation - Plaintiffs 'Lawyer of the Year.'"
