"Andy is clear and concise in the advice he provides. He cares about his clients and keeps their interests in high regard."

"Andy is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. His responses are always timely, thorough, and practical. One of Andy's greatest attributes is his ability to be the last calm and reasonable problem solver in the room when everyone else seems to have lost it. Andy defuses prickly situations with solutions that are mutually beneficial and respectful of all parties."

-Mary Murphy
Senior Vice President
Liberty Bank

Not only is his representation of me done in an exemplary fashion, my clients are often very pleased with his willingness to help and explain legal issues in a manner understood by all. Attorney Lubin is a true gentleman, with an excellent reputation. All who come into contact with him undoubtedly feel the same way. Attorney Lubin is also generous with his time, often volunteering his wise counsel to many non-profit groups in the community. He recently had a significant leadership role with a national non-profit. He is a credit to his firm, the banking community, and the legal industry as a whole.

-Robert Polito
Senior Vice President
Webster Bank, N.A.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Andy Lubin on several loan closings. Some of the qualities that make Andy an excellent attorney are his ability to understand the transaction, his overall knowledge of loan documentation, and his effectiveness and efficiency of getting loans to the closing table. Andy's level of experience and responsiveness to Bank and customer needs allow him to work effectively within tight timeframes. He is proactive in identifying and communicating issues so that resolutions can be determined quickly. Lastly, Andy demonstrates excellent interpersonal skills."

-Matthew Proto
The Bank of North Haven, a division of The Bank of Southern Connecticut

"Andy is a skilled attorney and a responsive service provider. For over 10 years, he has represented CTCIC as closing counsel in SBA 504 loan transactions. Because of his diligence, we have been able to overcome the marketplace's perception that SBA 504 loan closings are difficult, time consuming, and to be avoided whenever possible. As a result, the SBA 504 loan product has gained wider acceptance and loan volume has increased significantly. Andy is viewed as an extension of CTCIC, and CTCIC has benefited greatly from his reputation."

-Mark Cousineau
Connecticut Community Investment Corporation

"Andy is an outstanding lawyer who is very responsive to the client's specific needs. He is always on top of issues, creative in identifying solutions, and effective in negotiations. He does an excellent job quickly identifying and communicating the key issues and ensuring that the final deal is in our best interest."
