Over the years, the attorneys at Lubin Austermuehle have successfully tackled numerous high-stakes cases and demonstrated our skill in the courtroom and at the negotiating table. We offer a level of personalized attention that you won't always get from larger law firms, considering each client's specific needs and budget in order to come up with a winning strategy.
Here's what some of our past clients have to say about the legal services they received from our Chicago litigation lawyers handling high-stakes business litigation, intellectual property disputes, and defamation and libel cases, along with other types of lawsuits.
I purchased a 1965 Mustang GT-350 that was supposed to have been completely restored "no expense spared"... when I received it, it looked like this was true but after digging deep into the car it became evident that the dealer that sold me the car cut every corner they could. The car was actually worth 1/6th of what I paid for it. I called Peter Lubins office. I left my details and Peter called me back within a half hour. He drew up a complaint, filed it and the criminal dealer settled. I received every penny lost on this fraudulent transaction. I highly recommend Peter and his firm. Peter is tough and fights hard for his clients!

I've know Peter for several year now and he is one of the best litigation attorney's in the country, period! I would trust Peter to handle any legal issue that arose, either by himself or by his extensive network of trusted attorneys. His partner Patrick is also exceptional. They are my only choice for any litigation issue because they both are very knowledgeable, professional, caring and responsive.
- Ryan M.

I had a free amazing consultation with Peter Lubin. He is very knowledgeable, smart and gave me great free advice. He spent a lot of time with me. A lot of attorneys will not spend time giving you good advice. Thank you Peter!
- Peggy W.

Peter Lubin is a wonderful attorney who takes the time to listen and try and find a solution for you. He gave me wonderful advice and connected me with another attorney that he thought may be a better fit for my unique issue. Peter is highly regarded in the legal community and I would definitely reach out to him for any legal help you may need. If he can’t personally help you, he is very well connected and respected and will send you in the right direction to help you.

I found Lubin Austermuehle on google when I needed a Chicago area attorney for a vehicle fraud purchase. I felt hopeless as I'm located many states away, but it was an IL purchase. After verifying their legitimacy with a Chicago based attorney friend, I contacted them and began dialogue with Peter Lubin. Peter struck me as a bit eccentric in his communication style, but he was straightforward and no bs, which I appreciate. Long story short, this was a very challenging case in the sense that the other side did everything in their power to drag things out, make unnecessary demands and generally make thinks difficult. Peter and Terry Buehler were incredibly persistent and never gave up. They provided constant communication and ultimately settled the case in my favor. Trust these guys... they deliver!!
Mr. Peter Lubin is a great attorney with impeccable knowledge and ethics. He is a great communicator who is available and happy to answer your questions any time of the day. He is very transparent and always gives an honest opinion and is not worried about his billing like many other attorneys. He takes time to understand your case and also go through the evidence.
I had hired another attorney prior to him and I am so glad that I switched to Mr. Lubin at the right time. He turned my case around 360 degrees.
I won my case as a plaintiff hands down. And in the process, Mr. Lubin even got me awarded the Attorney fees and all my costs and interest as well !!!
Plus he even got the other party's attorney Sanctioned by the cook county judge !
Me and my family were only thankful for one thing this thanksgiving and that was to come across Mr. Peter Lubin in life. He was a godsend for me !
- Sahil S.
Peter's knowledge and expertise are top notch. He is quick to respond, has a thorough understanding of the legal process, and is approachable and a pleasure to work with.

I am a licensed attorney in Illinois who has been running a successful attorney recruitment agency since 1988. I have placed attorneys on five continents- Australia, South America, ( mostly U.S.), the Middle East and Europe. (I have also placed attorneys in Hawaii and Alaska.) In 2005, I placed former President Reagan's personal attorney- his close friend and confidant. In 2000 I placed the partners who populated Reed Smith's first office in Manhattan. I have placed attorneys at IBM, Siemens, Johnson and Johnson and numerous AMLAW 200 firms. Peter Lubin isn't just smart, he's a generous practitioner who puts his client first. What may be paradoxical, he's a smart guy who attended the University of Chicago Law School and Dartmouth as an undergrad. Listening to his advice, you would never guess he has that level of education- not an entitled air at all. He is thoughtful, down to earth, patient and generous- he has empathy for his clients as well as very strong legal expertise and experience. As someone who has placed some of the best attorneys in the world since the 1980's, I can tell you that Peter could stand with any of them. I can't recommend him enough.
- Nicholas K.
Best law firm in entire city of Chicago. Period. Best

I had the great fortune of working with both Peter Lubin and Terry Buehler in my case which involved breach of fiduciary duty, stolen corporate opportunity, and being squeezed out of my company. When it comes to playing this type of legal 3D chess - putting creative, strategic pressure on a case with many moving parts - it would be hard to find a better outfit. Peter and Terry, both with decades of experience, thoughtfully applied their deep backgrounds with agility and persistence, which in the end of the day helped me win back my company. I should also note they were both more than generous with their time, available for and thorough in their explanations, and flexible enough with their fees so I could see this chapter through and come out ahead.
If you need true legal experts in any of these areas, I can't recommend enough that you give Peter and Terry a call.
- Ryan B.
Where do I start?! Peter is simply amazing! I contacted him regarding a dispute with my employer contract. Peter immediately returned my initially and subsequent calls until the issued was complete. I truly appreciated his no nonsense, straight forward approach when advising me of how to handle my situation. Peter is trustworthy, kind and very personable. I truly appreciated his candor in the midst of an upsetting time. Peter listened to my concerns and answered my questions in a professional and thoughtful manner. He is an exemplary attorney with a vast knowledge and attention to detail. If you're looking for an attorney to represent, protect and defend you interest, look no further. Peter is the attorney for you.
- Phillip C.
I am an attorney in licensed in both Connecticut and Texas. I was searching for answers and expertise to fight against a group of people terrorizing and defaming me and found Peter's firm. I reached out to Peter via email not expecting to reach him because, not only was it very late on a Friday afternoon, I had identified myself as living outside of Chicago so he would know I would not be able to become a client. But Peter called me immediately and then spent close to an hour and a half counseling me on the steps and remedies I could pursue and analyzing the specifics of my own case. I offered to pay his consulting fee and he refused despite me taking his valuable time. Peter's professional yet compassionate approach to my situation accompanied by his knowledge of the area of law, substantive, procedural, practical, possible provided me the strength, guidance, strategy and knowledge to defend myself. Even though I only spent that time on the phone with him, he possessed the characteristics that I think all attorneys should embody. The only disappointment I had was that he could not represent me.
- Shawna H.
Pete was very prompt and took the time to understand my situation and patiently answered all the questions I had. He was quick to follow up and provide additional clarity on matters that seemed confusing to me.

I feel lucky that the first lawyer I called for my consumer fraud complaint was Peter Lubin. As a consumer trying to take on a big dealership and a huge car maker I was feeling defeated and sorry for myself. I was sold a CPO vehicle that was in a wreck and both the dealership and the car maker was blaming me and ignoring me.Thats when I decided to call a consumer fraud attorney and I definitely got lucky finding the no nonsense straight to the point lawyer Peter Lubin. I felt I had the right people in my corner and they couldn't ignore Peter like they ignored me. Him and his team took these thieves on and got me more than I could've ever imagine. Thank you Lubin Austermuehle for standing up for consumers like myself.
- Mike L.
Pete Lubin helped me with a very challenging, out of state, automobile purchase. It was a complete disaster. The dealership completely falsified the truth about the condition of the vehicle. Both mechanical and aesthetic. There were scratches dings, dents, engine lights, leaking fluids, etc. Peter, and his team, dealt with this very expeditiously. The case was won. I recovered all of my losses. I am grateful as a human being and as veteran. We all serve each other in different ways. Peter served this case perfectly. Thank you!
- Jason B.
I needed help with some non-solicit advice. Peter Lubin called me back very quickly, and helped me through it. He was able to review my contract, and advise me on my options. Highly recommended!
- Christopher D.
I needed a little guidance regarding a dispute with my former employer over the right to obtain unemployment benefits following a lay off. Peter replied to my message on Yelp almost immediately even though he was on vacation. He had only dealt with a couple cases of mine's specific nature but was eager to help and even suggested I call him. Instead I let him enjoy his vacation and asked for a reference. The contact he provided proved to be a great help and if I ever need counsel again I won't hesitate to employ Peter's firm. Thank you!
- Ben S.
Peter Lubin was very helpful and responded quickly to my questions.

- Ben M.
Mr. Lubin is responsible to answer all the questions. He returned the phone call quickly and he is a kind person to work with.
- V. Z.
Peter Lubin is the best attorney I've ever worked with. I happen to be an attorney, and over the past decade, I've hired 4 attorneys for various personal matters. I'm used to attorneys doing the minimum, especially when it comes to giving case updates and returning phone calls. When I hired Peter, he went above and beyond. With our first telephone call, he was immediately ready to resolve the legal dispute, updated me regularly, and gave me the honest truth about the weaknesses/strengths of my case. Peter was especially knowledgeable in defamation/slander/libel and helped negotiate a quick resolution to my dispute, especially during COVID-19. If you have a serious civil lawsuit, Peter Lubin is impressive.
- Cynthia Pietrucha
Peter Lubin is an Angel. I was in need of a lawyer who could litigate my noncompete case, & he did just that. Peter was very honest, upfront, quick and efficient. His team is knowledgeable and helpful. I am forever thankful for Peters wonderful work ethic.

First class firm and Peter Lubin is without a doubt one of the Finest attorneys I have had the pleasure of working with. He even refunded a portion of our retainer and I guarantee that was the first time in my life that ever happened. Easy to talk to, pragmatic and down to earth guy. Great law firms start with great lawyers and he is one of the best.
- Peter D'Angelo
I reached-out for assistance on a matter and within 15 minutes of submitting contact info I was contacted by Peter Lubin. We talked live and I shared the background of the issues about which I had questions. Peter provided an immediate and succinct opinion on the matter as if I had been a client of the firm for years. As a lawyer for more than 25 years, I was very impressed with Peter's responsiveness, confidence and substantive knowledge.
- William H.
Peter Lubin is absolutely amazing. Literally everything you would want in a lawyer. He’s thorough, and responsive, Keeps you updated. You Don’t have to hunt him down. He avails himself for all your questions and Concerns. And he knows what he’s doing. He's articulate and knowledgeable which is very important because I've seen lawyers where you question how they passed the Bar exam. A confident lawyer that you can feel confident in, allowing you to stress less.
- Cynthia C.
This attorney at law is above the rest, in my opinion. In fact, he is my SUPER HERO. My case was difficult to find help because it crossed state lines and was a complaint about a used car dealership. Then along came Lubin law firm. I personally worked on this issue for a year, even to the point of taking used car dealership classes to find a way to right this wrong. No case is too small or too large for Mr. Lubin and his qualified team. Peter Lubin has years of experience working with used car dealerships and is not intimated easily. With his highly qualified team and auto expert our case was finally settled. His litigation expertise put us in the right arena right from the beginning. Things 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 Mr. Lubin and his team enough and HIGHLY recommend them to become your HERO.
- Donna S.
Peter Lubin, thank you for saving my case, you are the best. After ten months of no results, Peter join the case as a co-counsel . From that very day everything changed. Peter's knowledge and expertise closed and settle this case in three months. During the process, Peter was always available to guide and explain the steps for fair and quickest resolution. I would gladly recommend Peter as your next, He is above the rest. He is the BEST!!!
- Wojciech G.
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 main 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!

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.
