Andrew E. Rubenstein

Andrew E. Rubenstein

Litigation Manager

Fighting against injustice is Attorney Andy Rubenstein’s mission, and practicing personal injury law is the way he accomplishes this goal. Formerly a lawyer for insurance companies, Rubenstein left his luxurious lifestyle to pursue a career in personal injury law – a decision that has allowed him the opportunity to protect those individuals who truly need it most. Today, Andy is a prominent Houston attorney at D. Miller & Associates, and he also teaches at the Trial Lawyers College in Wyoming (a position he’s held since 2011).

Backed by his mission to help others, Rubenstein is an active member in the legal community. He “hates bullies” and has invested long hours into advocating for victims in the legal system. As a published author and respected authority in personal injury law, Andrew has earned the prestigious rating of AV® Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell®. His published articles can be found in Warrior, a legal journal that issues works about narrative structure, storytelling, and more.

Before earning his Juris Doctorate from the Houston College of Law in 1991, Andy attended both the University of Texas and the University of Houston.
