Introduction

A communications expert, attorney, author and publicist, Gina F. Rubel, Esq. has handled a wide range of legal marketing and public relations from internationally publicized death penalty appeals to whistleblower matters. A nationally sought-after speaker, Gina reveals the secrets to law firm communications success in her book, Everyday Public Relations for Lawyers.

Gina owns the award-winning public relations and marketing agency, Furia Rubel Communications, Inc. In 2009, the agency was listed among the region’s top PR firms by the Philadelphia Business Journal and has been named one of the Top 300 WBE’s in the U.S. by Women’s Enterprise Magazine. Furia Rubel provides expert marketing, strategic planning and PR services to law firms, accounting firms and other professional service providers, municipalities and government organizations, educational institutions, and business-to-business companies internationally. Their clients have been featured everywhere from MSNBC and The Today Show to NPR, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

A client advocate and business diplomat, Gina knows how to apply strategic planning to achieve clients’ objectives. In 2010, she received The Legal Intelligencer Women Lawyers of Distinction Award and the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce Patricia Clatch Award. In 2009, she was honored by the National Italian-American Political Action Committee with a Special Achievement Award in Legal Communications and Media. She was also recognized by eWomenNetwork Foundation as an International Femtor Award Finalist for Business Matchmaker of the Year. In 2008, Gina was named one of Pennsylvania’s Best 50 Women in Business by Governor Ed Rendell and a 2008 Woman of Distinction by the Philadelphia Business Journal. Gina received the 2007 Deanne White Award for Community Service from the Public Relation Society of America (PRSA) Philadelphia Chapter and her company received two PepperPot Awards from PRSA Philadelphia for their work in media and community relations.

While actively practicing law, Gina served on a Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board Hearing Committee for six years where she conducted legal ethics reviews of other attorneys. Since then, she has taught a variety of courses on public relations programs to legal professionals, corporations and universities including social media, strategic public relations planning, crisis communications, media training and reputation management.

Gina is an active member of the Legal Marketing Association, American, Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Bar Associations (Bar-News Media Chair), Justinian Society (Chancellor), Philadelphia Public Relations Association, Bucks County Women’s Business Forum (Immediate Past President), National Association of Women Business Owners and Public Relations Society of America.
