San Diego law firm settles pro bono wrongful death case involving a victim killed by a drunk driver in Carlsbad CA

The Rubinstein Law Firm has just helped a family settle with an insurance company regarding a wrongful death case. Zev Rubinstein took the case pro bono and represented the family before anything went to trial. Rubinstein wanted to help the victim’s family after he learned they were unable to afford legal representation.

In July, CBS reported that the victim, Arthur John Jacobs was riding his bike when Julianne Elyse Thomson hit him, then fled from the scene of the crime. Jacobs was pronounced dead at the scene. Police soon found Thomson hiding in some bushes, and she was charged with a felony hit-and-run, manslaughter, and DUI. In March, Thomson was sentenced to six years behind bars, as reported by NBC.

"Helping victims who have sustained catastrophic injuries or who have lost a loved one obtain justice is often difficult,” said San Diego personal injury lawyer, Zev Rubenstein. “On numerous occasions our office has helped victims pro bono when there are extenuating and challenging circumstances"

The Rubinstein Law Firm conducted an extensive investigation and allocated various resources to help resolve the case for the family. They represented the Jacobs family without taking any fees or reimbursement for money spent on the case when it became evident that the responsible party had limited resources and insurance coverage.

The victim's daughter Melissa thanked the San Diego Law Firm by leaving this review on their Yahoo Local page: “I would like to give much thanks to the Rubinstein Law Group for taking time and patience to work with me through a difficult time. My case was handled with dignity and pride. Financially I was not prepared to obtain a Lawyer, but Zev Rubinstein worked with me, and was extremely helpful. I would recommend this Law Group to anyone who has experienced a wrongful death in their family. I was extremely pleased with the service."
