Broker Check
Richard M. Rubenstein, Esq.

I develop long term relationships with my clients and base them on integrity and commitment to them, their families, friends and businesses. Our initial work together is the coordination and integration of all aspects of their business and personal finances. My role is to provide professional counsel to all financial aspects of the client. My goal is to provide my clients with the financial confidence necessary to maximize efficiency and effectiveness in achieving great success, wealth and financial freedom.

As a practicing attorney and financial services professional with over 19 years experience, I am uniquely qualified to assist my clients with all aspects of financial estate planning and business succession planning.

As a father of a child with special needs who suffered from a neuromuscular disorder, I am well versed and have a heartfelt commitment to assist families who require special needs planning.

I currently reside in Yorktown Heights, NY with my wife Michele, our daughter Emma and our dog Ike.
