The Expert Network celebrates its newest member, Attorney Stephen B. Ruben
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., October 4, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Stephen B. Ruben, Founder & Managing Director, Ruben Law Firm, has joined The Expert Network©, an invitation-only service for distinguished professionals. Mr. Ruben has been chosen as a Distinguished Lawyer™ based on peer reviews and ratings, dozens of recognitions, and accomplishments achieved throughout his career.
Mr. Ruben outshines others in his field due to his extensive educational background, career longevity, and numerous awards and recognitions. After graduating with honors from Bethany College in West Virginia, he continued his education at the Illinois Institute of Technology’s Chicago-Kent College of Law. Mr. Ruben practiced law in Illinois for nearly two decades, including positions with the City of Chicago and the prestigious boutique firm Jann, Carrol, Kruse and Sain. He started his own practice in Illinois in 1979, focusing on family law litigation, estate planning, and probate litigation. In 1993 Mr. Ruben relocated to San Francisco where he practiced with several family law firms, before re-establishing the Ruben Law Firm in 1997. He is currently an LL.M. candidate at the Pepperdine University Straus School of Alternative Dispute Resolution.
With over 40 years dedicated to law, Mr. Ruben brings a wealth of knowledge to his industry, and in particular, to his area of specialization, family law. When asked why he decided to pursue a career in family law, Mr. Ruben said:
The key question we are asking here, as California leads the nation in thought and social policy, is: 'What is family?' We began as the first state to approve domestic partnership—I was an author of that legislation. Now we have to examine rights related to same sex marriages; to births in which same sex marriage couples use a surrogate to have a child; to situations where one party uses her own cells to procreate a child with no biological connection to a spouse.
"In law school, I discovered that the law was a powerful element for social change. As an attorney, I have an opportunity to shape policy for the betterment of our society by providing equal access to, and fairness within, our justice system, and I take this as my mission in all aspects of our family law practice.”
Today, Mr. Ruben is a recognized expert in divorce, custody, spousal support, and property division. In 2010 Mr. Ruben became one of only three California attorneys in private practice appointed to serve on the Elkins Family Law Task Force, comprised of leading jurists, attorneys and mental health professional in the State.
As a thought-leader in his field, Mr. Ruben maintains a unique vantage point from which to follow prevailing trends in family law. In particular, he feels that the changes in his state are clearing the path for the United States as a whole. He noted:
"The key question we are asking here, as California leads the nation in thought and social policy, is: ‘What is family?’ We began as the first state to approve domestic partnership—I was an author of that legislation. Now we have to examine rights related to same-sex marriages; to births in which same-sex marriage couples use a surrogate to have a child; to situations where one party uses her own cells to procreate a child with no biological connection to a spouse."
Mr. Ruben has been recognized by The Legal Network as a Top Family Law Lawyer in California for five years running and has been named a Super Lawyer by San Francisco Magazine on multiple occasions, among many other honors.
