Denise A. Rubin is an accomplished appellate and complex briefing litigator with a 33 year track record of success for her clients.
Ms. Rubin gained broad experience litigating New York Labor Law (construction accident) matters when she served as the primary briefing attorney for plaintiffs’ liaison counsel, representing more than 11,000 first responders and construction workers suffering toxic exposure injuries following the debris removal and clean up of the WTC site following the 9/11 terrorist attacks in lower Manhattan.
