The Bob Rubin Approach

In a word, it’s service, personalized attention. Each client receives Bob’s experience, expertise, and focused attention. He welcomes the opportunity to explore a client’s situation in depth, and to that end is happy to travel to a project site or local office, whether it’s down the block or around the world.

Several fee structures are offered and Bob will work with clients to determine the one that makes the most sense for the project at hand. Fees can be charged on an hourly or daily basis, or alternatively on a task or results basis, and billed upon achievement of prescribed results.
