BROOKLYN — Court Street attorney Sanford Rubenstein, of the Brooklyn law firm of Rubenstein & Rynecki, has been retained to represent Christin Myles, who claims she was punched in the face by NFL wide-receiver Brandon Marshall in the early morning hours of Sunday, March 11, outside the Chelsea nightclub Marquee.

Marshall said Friday that he is not concerned about being suspended by the NFL for the nightclub incident.

The Chicago Bears acquired Marshall from the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday, sending two third-round draft picks to the Dolphins to obtain the No. 1 target they have been lacking for years. But the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Marshall comes with a checkered history.

Marshall says he is excited for the truth to come out, and police had not expressed interest in speaking with him as of Friday morning. He has not been charged in the incident.

According to Rubenstein, Myles is cooperating fully with detectives probing the alleged assault. She and Rubenstein met with detectives on Thursday for 45 minutes at the 10th precinct in Manhattan.

She described to them in detail what she says happened on the sidewalk in front of Marquee and told detectives that Marshall hauled back and punched her in the face, hitting her eye and caused her to be violently thrown to the ground. Myles told the Daily News, “My eye still hurts. … I still have problem with my vision. … I want him held criminally accountable for what he did to me.”
