Attorney Awards


Richard H. Rubin is a member of Licatesi Law Group, LLP, and has practiced Real Estate Law for the past 40 years with a broad based interest in representing parties in real estate litigation as well as contract and closings, including short sales and providing defense in commercial and residential mortgage foreclosure lawsuits. The practice also includes topics involving reverse mortgage, real estate taxes and related water sewer foreclosure actions and the practice related to Surrogate Court concerns. Mr. Rubin coordinates a team of real estate attorneys, paralegals and real estate professionals with significant litigation and mortgage loan modification experience.

As has been widely described, a significant portion of his practice continues to meet the current economic conditions and demands which have significantly affected the rights and obligations of businesses and families managing loan modification issues and defending foreclosure actions. Among his numerous concerns are providing counsel to prudently considered solutions for borrowers and lenders to implement action plans and recommendations and address these various issues.

In addition to serving this fast paced environment of home and business retention efforts, Mr. Rubin has undertaken to represent clients and serves as counsel in the defense of litigated foreclosure actions, sharing the goals of both Federal and State regulators to comply with various mortgage loan assistance programs which are current and in place to provide balance against the immediate loss of significant ownership affairs, rights and privileges.

The Real Estate and Litigation team at Licatesi Law Group, LLP serves you with one purpose in mind: to permit each client completion of their real estate contract matters in a responsible and accountable manner. For those clients facing the loss of their civil rights and damages caused by the conduct of financial institutions with the immediate loss of their homes and businesses in court ordered auctions, Mr. Rubin's goals are to provide a presence and voice in court and to allow for a prudent, well structured and sustainable legal defense and loan workout process meeting the needs of each client involved in the transaction.
