Wonderful attorney who really cares about people and wants to help people. Peter Lubin was very responsive, listened and gave honest answers to my questions.
- Sarah J.
I reached out to Lubin Austermuehle to review a non-compete agreement I had with a previous employer. Peter Lubin promptly reached out to me and reviewed my contract. His legal expertise was exactly what I was looking for as he had seen many cases that were similar to mine. He provided me with free legal advice that other lawyers were trying to charge me big bucks for! Being a skeptic, I expected that I'd actually end up paying at the end of the "free" consultation. Nope, it was actually just free. Thanks Peter! I know who I'll be reaching out to next time.
- Ken Y.
I needed the opinion of an experienced employment lawyer in the Chicago area. He responded quickly, delivered a well-informed consultation about my situation, and it was just generally a pleasant conversation. Definitely glad I called!
- Joseph H.
Peter Lubin was the only lawyer who was willing to take our case. For two reasons we were not able to find help. 1-We lived in WI and had an issue with 2-a used car dealership. No concern is too small or too large for Mr. Lubin and his highly qualified team. It took me a year of trying to get a wrong righted. Peter Lubin has years of experience working with car dealerships and is not intimidated easily. With his team and auto expert our case was finally settled. His litigation expertise put us in the right arena from the beginning. Something not often found in a law practice that this firm has abundantly, is a real desire to help, respect for the client and doesn???t mess around with the truth. I can???t thank this firm enough and HIGHLY recommend them to be your HERO.
- Donna S and Roger O
Peter Lubin is incredible. I personally hate dealing with lawyers and have always found them to be stuck up and pretentious. Not Lubin. Super helpful, super down to earth guy. Made me feel a lot better about my position and even though he knew I couldn't afford his services at the time, he still gave me ample advice to work with and was honest about what I needed to do. Never gonna forget this lawyer and not going to anyone else if I need a lawyer again in the future. Also, their front receptionist who answered the mina line was also so pleasant and had so much empathy, instantly put me at ease.
- Immad Khalid
Just had a phone consultation with Peter. I will not hesitate to hire him and recommend him to my relatives or friends. He provided very detailed professional consultation. I appreciate his attention to details, patience and time he spent with me. I am confident he will competently handle my case.
- Rimma P.
I called Lubin Austermuehle for advice and help for a libel case; while we did not end up working with them, all staff we encountered were patient, helpful and COMPASSIONATE when I was describing our legal scenario. Peter Lubin took the time to both give us guidance on the types of ways we can move forward legally and recommended a professional contact that had excellent credentials and reviews. I can't really describe how grateful I am, but they really made us feel heard and validated. I highly recommend reaching out to them if you looking for an intelligent, highly professional, and thoughtful law office to work on your case.
- Josie H.
I contacted Lubin Austermuehle, P.C. seeking guidance on a civil issue. Peter Lubin was professional, helpful, and responsive - he even took time out of his weekend to explain to me what the next steps were and what I needed to do to remedy my issue. I am happy with the advice and guidance I've received, and am confident that Peter understood and protected my best interests. I would not hesitate to recommend Lubin Austermuehle to any of my friends and family if they are seeking legal representation.
- Chad J.
Pete helped remove me from a hugely toxic business relationship and made me feel confident that I was in the right hands. He is honest, trustworthy, understanding, and compassionate. While I do hope that I do not have to go through this nightmare again, he made this experience pleasant and I will continue to refer anyone that I know to him. If you're looking for the best, Pete is it!
- Mik M.
I called Peter to discuss a potential fraud case. He was very responsive and helpful.

Very impressed with the honesty and responsiveness of this firm! I would highly recommend.

Peter was fantastic! He helped us remedy a situation where we purchased a car that was misrepresented by a dishonest car dealership. Throughout the process, I always felt like I was in good hands. He checked in with us frequently to provide updates via phone and email, and I felt comfortable asking questions. He worked hard to make sure that we were satisfied with the outcome.
- Rachel R.
Peter is a very skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate attorney. I would highly recommend him to any one looking for legal assistance as Peter is one of the very few attorneys in Illinois I have found who cares and put the client's interest first.
- Van R.
Mr Lubin helped me in a very complex dispute .He has a wealth of knowledge and brain stormed solutions . He worked hard to help me find a solution dealing with some very bad people who took advantage of my vulnerability. I would trust him to handle any situation.
- Nancy M.
We are so incredibly fortunate to have found the law firm of Lubin Austermuehle. From our initial consultation call, we knew that this was a firm that exuded professionalism and expertise. They have a wide array of legal experience and it definitely comes across in both their verbal and written communications. Peter Lubin and Jason Shanfield are extremely caring and compassionate people who respect their clients and value them as people. In addition, they are very understanding of the financial impact that lawsuits have on people and were sensitive to working with our budget. Their invoices are extremely detailed and clients can feel assured that they know exactly what they are being billed for. Peter and Jason have excellent communication skills and gave us regular updates during our time working together. Their writing skills were exceptional. We felt confident as events unfolded that we were in very capable hands. They were the one bright spot out of all the stress that we felt. We highly recommend this firm to anyone looking for legal representation.

I purchased a 2017 certified pre-owned car from a dealer in Chicago suburbs. From the day one I had a feeling something is not right with how the car drives since I owned the exact car which is 2016 model. After taking it to multiple dealers and not getting anything positive out of it, I took it to certified Collison center and was told this car has been in accident and bumper and fender was repainted which was not disclosed to me during the sale. I contacted the dealer and after hearing no response after couple of weeks, I looked online for good attorney and found Peter. He took my case as soon he heard my version of story and assigned me a certified expert engineer to test drive the car. The engineer concluded that this vehicle has been in an accident and has a Frame damage which makes the vehicle ineligible for being sold as certified pre-owned. Peter handled my case and got the settlement in no time including the transportation costs from out of state, all the loan payment installments including interest paid till date and extra compensation for defrauding done by dealer. I highly recommend peter for cases involving dealer fraud because he won't stop fighting until he wins.
- Abhi R.
I've know Peter Lubin personally and professionally for several years. He's a person I hold in the highest regard due to his professionalism and honesty. There is no other person you want on your side as a business acquaintance and friend. I highly recommend Peter Lubin and his firm!
- Anthony G.
Talk about legal advocates who not only hear you, Peter and his partner not only hear you, they listen! Their integrity and pressionalism are approve reproach. Their track record is exceptional for successful and lucrative wins on behalf of their clients. Having had personal experience dealing with LA, I can vouch for their focus on two critically important things: results and relationships. I'd give them 10 stars if I could.
- James Ardito
I reached out to Pete Lubin about an issue my company was dealing with. He listened carefully to me, made sound recommendations for us, and followed up very promptly. I truly appreciate their company's assistance.
- Elizabeth O.
I was in a unique situation that required me to find well versed and talented representation that could provide the help that I needed in a complicated legal matter. What I anticipated being an incredibly desperate and stressful experience concluded with success because I found the right Lawyer, Peter Lubin. I found everything I was seeking in Peter Lubin, who is an experienced and intelligent Attorney that took time to understand my needs, consistently obtained key information on my case, and did an excellent job of keeping me updated on developments along the way. Peter is a highly responsive, exceedingly patient, true professional that is pleasant to work with. Peter Lubin's profound and insightful knowledge of employment law is remarkable, and his approach to my case facilitated a strong position for me. I am extremely pleased and satisfied with the results.
- Craig E.
I worked with Peter Lubin on a case involving dealer fraud regarding one of the McLarens I purchased this year. Peter was super communicative and even started the dialogue with me over a holiday weekend to get the details he needed to get the ball rolling on my case. He connected me with an expert witness to inspect the vehicle, had a report drafted, consolidated all of the ads and communications with the dealer, and put together a suit. With Peter's due diligence, we quickly settled with the dealer that had sold me the vehicle. I definitely recommend working with Peter Lubin if you are in a situation regarding dealer fraud, he genuinely has your best interests at heart.
- Vincent S.
Outstanding Job, quick & to the point. Delivered the exact results he said he would in an extremely efficient and timely manner.
We are an international firm, our credibility is of the utmost importance to us, Peter Lubin and his firm helped us maintain that credibility on an International scale, which to us, is priceless!!
- N S.
Have met and worked with many attorneys in course of my business life. Working with Peter was a pleasant surprise. The knowledge, compassion, understanding of clients need and circumstances is rare to find in todays attorneys which Peter brings along with his keen knowledge of law and professionalism.I thank him for all his guidance and support in making right decisions at a right time in winning the case!

Lubin Austermuehle is a powerhouse of legal talent. If you want a firm to represent you that is intellectually talented handling almost any facet of litigation from large complex class action suits to personal individual consumer fraud cases, this is the firm. Most important, they will not treat you like a meal ticket charging you every time you call them, or they call you. When I was seeking to hire someone to represent me, I researched about 50 firms and reviewed the resumes of the attorneys and the cases they tried before I made my decision. The credentials and experience of this firm really stood out compared to their peers. They are a very unique legal boutique with the sophistication and breadth of experience commensurate with large law firms. They really care about their clients and decision making is guided by what is best for the client.
Peter Lubin would call me almost every week to see how I was doing and give me an update on my case. It was a horrible time in my life and Peter really helped support me and he never charged me for these calls. Patrick Austermuehle was another lawyer from this firm that worked on my case. He is very astute and genuinely cares about his clients. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case and impressed with the legal work performed by Lubin Austermuehle. I would highly recommend them.
- Lynn S.
Peter Lubin and Patrick Austermuehle represented me in a complicated medical/business lawsuit. Peter and his team are not only personable and very professional, but they are also extremely competent litigators.
I got to know Peter and his team very well over the 3 years of litigation in my case. The team is very sharp and talented. They spent the time to really understand the minute details of my case. I felt they were entirely committed. The opposing party threw numerous legal curveballs during litigation. Peter and his team successfully navigated all of them. I was astounded at Peter and his team's preparation and skill in deposing members of the opposing party. Peter is very aggressive when he needs to be. I really felt I had hired the best lawyers to represent me.
Peter even did research and kept in contact with me regarding my case during his vacation! I felt very reassured that Peter was only a phone call away. Anytime I thought of something regarding my case, I did not hesitate to call. He always got back to me if he could not take my call.
My case was settled just before trial and I received 100% of my claim. In addition, all my legal fees were paid by the opposing party.
I recommend Peter Lubin, Patrick Austermuehle and their team without hesitation!

I year ago I found myself in a terrible situation created by a former friend of mine who took advantage of my kindness, as well as my family resources and frustrated me to the point of blasting her actions on line by sending a warning message to the rest of my friends within my ethnic community. Unfortunately, my actions gave the opportunity for the same disgruntled and greedy individual to file a libel case against me claiming a defamation of character and all kinds of unsubstantiated damages. First I turned for legal assistance to a neighborhood friend who had good intentions, but very little experience with the libel law. After a few months, I quickly realized that using someone unexperienced could cost me a lot more in the long run, so I took the time to research my options and decided to contact Peter Lubin and his L-A Law firm. Peter immediately tried to help me (even before I had retained his services). I was very impressed of his prompted and caring approach. From the first conversation that I had with Peter I could feel that he had my best interest in mind. He was knowledgeable, honest with my options, and extremely genuine with his time. It took me another month after my initial conversation with Peter to convince myself to switch my legal representation from our family friend, to the professional L-A law firm with proven track record and vast experience with cases such as mine, but I am so glad that I did! Once Peter Lubin and Jason Shanfield took over my representation, my case turned around 180 degrees. Suddenly my defense turned from "stale" (with multiple extensions) to an aggressive and effective representation that led to the dismissal of my case after only one written motion.
The results were simply amazing, especially after I had been told by multiple attorneys that these cases take years to resolve. Fortunately, the clever and impeccable motion written by Jason Sheffield and reviewed by Peter Lubin made it impossible for the opposing side to continue further with their case and led to their voluntary withdraw from this frivolous case. Jason Sheffield graciously yet vigorously defended my case seeking justice for me during the proceedings and pushing tirelessly for the best possible outcome. Both Peter and Jason took the time to explain every step of the process, as well as the possible risks and outcomes. They were both patient and understanding with the decisions made by me as their client providing their genuine advice without imposing their opinion. Although my case was not dismissed with prejudice, I feel comfortable about the possibility of another claim filed against me within the next year, because I have Jason and Peter ready to raise against the challenge beside me should this issue resurface again. The law is a passion for these two attorneys and unlike others, they don't count every second, but instead they make sure that all your needs are well taken care of. Peter had advised me on additional issues beyond the label law for which I am extremely grateful. I am beyond pleased with the results delivered by this outstanding legal team. Therefore, I would strongly recommend both: Peter Lubin and Jason Shanfield to anyone who needs experienced, efficient, and genuine team of attorneys who will provide the savviest legal advice and take immediate actions to protect their clients' interests and well-being. Choosing anyone else to represent you in a libel case would be a costly mistake. They are the best in the Chicago area.

I really appreciate this opportunity to highly recommend Peter Lubin of the Law Offices of Lubin Austermuehle. I remember about a year ago considering that I might be involved in litigation. This led me to search Google for a lawyer as most people would do. I saw the law offices of Lubin Austermuehle which specialized in the problem I had. I called Mr. Lubin by phone and left a message. He returned my call a short time later. We discussed my case over the phone and I was impressed with Mr. Lubin's insight and experiences. Although I really didn't know him my "instincts" told me this was the right person. Unfortunately, my fears came true and I was eventually sued in federal court months later. When I contacted Mr. Lubin again there was no hesitation that he would take the case. He guided me through the initial paperwork and fees and then did all the required notifications involving my insurance company. Mr. Lubin also asked me to send him the paperwork I had and reviewed same. He then started the process of representing me in court. He filed his appearance as the attorney of record and then set about defending me. Not only did Mr. Lubin defend me in the lawsuit, per se, but he also worked on dealing with my insurance company.
During this process Mr. Lubin contacted me numerous times via text, phone, and email. He and his staff were well prepared for the work that was required. Mr. Lubin made me feel like I was the only one that he was representing. He was thoughtful, professional, and particular mindful of how all this would be affecting me. When it came to his fees he was considerate that monies would have to come from me and not my insurance company. He specifically counseled me to talk to my wife and family to see how his fees could be paid. He was never pushy about this. He allowed me to pay him a set amount over time. When I got discouraged he consistently encouraged me to have faith that I would prevail. He never promised that I would win but he did promise that he would not give up or abandon me. This was absolutely true. I also want to say that Mr. Lubin could not have done all this without his partner, associates, and staff. The staff at Lubin Austermuehle are fantastic. I get updates from them frequently, and yes, I also get the invoices. But they are very kind about it.
I want to let you know that the law offices of Lubin Austermuehle were successful in defending me when I was sued. A federal judge dismissed the case, I believe, as a direct result of the superior legal briefs that Mr. Lubin and company developed. Mr. Lubin is a very aggressive attorney. Aggressive in the sense of defending his clients. I didn't sleep so well during all this but I did sleep better knowing that Lubin Austermuehle and their superior staff were working for me.

Peter Lubin is a stand up lawyer who can be trusted. Peter helped me negotiate a settlement for a family member who was unfortunately swindled in a transaction that violated the law. Peter provided advisory because he didn't like what he heard and wanted to help - he was under zero obligation to do this, but he did it anyway. We are incredibly grateful for Peter's time, generosity and most importantly his expertise. I would recommend Peter to anyone who needs legal help.
I had Peter represent me in a complicated business matter. He successfully took it to trial and won the case getting me 100% of what we had claimed at outset.
Peter came across as very competent, professional during the initial stages. But it was during the trial that I really came to know him. He was cunning as a fox, aggressive as a tiger and very meticulous in planning.
He and his partner Patrick dug very deep to get all the facts of the case and caught the defendants committing perjury on several occasions.
He was very approachable, giving me his personal cell. I called him on several occasions on weekends or nights and he would call back right away.
I have had experience with other lawyers, but he is easily the best
- Fazal M.
I do not usually write reviews, but I was very impressed with Peter. I asked him to review an employment contract and he responded immediately. He is very knowledgeable, helpful, and he answered all of my questions clearly and honestly. Would strongly recommend.

Reached out to them recently and they provided me with guidance on a contract, and I was very impressed. Candid feedback and recommendations based on their years of experience. They don't sugarcoat things, which I appreciate!
- Jill M.
Peter Lubin is an outstanding trial attorney. He represented our company in an employment matter and was able to guide us to a good resolution in a short amount of time. He is aware of the burden that legal expenses can have on a small business and manages his involvement accordingly. His preference is toward negotiated solutions but is very skilled in the courtroom, should that become necessary. Highly recommended.
- Ken B.
I contacted Peter Lubin at Lubin Austermuehle using the free consultation service on their website to discuss a potential consumer fraud case. Within minutes he promptly replied and we immediately set up a time to talk about my situation the next day. He did an excellent job discussing my options and how best to proceed.
- Jim J.
Pete was so easy to work with, providing me with a quality experience that was transparent, fast, and at fair price. His level communication made me feel comfortable throughout the process.
- Derek C.
We found Peter via a Google search in Chicago. He responded quickly via our online inquiry (even on a weekend). He was very responsive throughout our contact with him & always kept us in the loop with what was happening. We were able to settle our dispute without going to arbitration or a hearing. Peter had good contacts in the business and was well versed with how to handle every part of the process. Thanks Peter!
- Craig S.
"Peter and his team helped us with an auto fraud case. They communicated well (timely and very responsive), investigated deeply, and negotiated a very good settlement. We were able to resolve our significant issue without a large burden and in a manner that allowed for us to come out ahead. I'd recommend Peter and his team strongly!"
