Eric was lead appellate counsel in New York’s most important LGBTQ parenting case where he convinced its highest court to overrule two prior decisions limiting the definition of who is a parent to biology and adoption. Recognizing that LGBTQ families have different pathways to creating a family, Eric convinced New York’s highest court to expand the definition of parentage so that LGBTQ individuals would be recognized as the legal parents of the children he/she raises.
Eric also helped have the presumption of legitimacy of children born during a marriage extended to same-gender married couples. This right, a presumption based upon biological certainty, is now acknowledged to apply to couples in some states notwithstanding the fact that such biological certainty is impossible for both spouses in such a marriage.
Mr. Wrubel’s legal practice is devoted to handling complex family and matrimonial matters. He is accomplished in negotiating the amicable dissolution of marriages as well as taking these cases to trial if settlement is not possible.
