Rob is an excellent attorney and I recommend him to anyone who is seeking assistance with an employment issue. I was amazed at his knowledge of the labor laws and how quickly he responded to my questions. He is truly dedicated to his clients. This man answers his own calls which is basically unheard of in his profession. I was never left wondering where my case was going as he kept me informed throughout the entire process. Rob was able to negotiate an outcome that satisfied me and he accomplished this in much less time than I had anticipated. Rob Fortgang is a highly competent, knowledgeable and hardworking attorney who had my best interest in mind throughout the entire process.
Although I was unable to secure Attorney Fortgang for my services. He did offer me excellent information and guidance for my hearing.I am now in a position to obtain his expertise.
From my first phone call to Mr. Fortgang's office, which he answered, I knew I would be in good hands. He and his associate were professional and knowledgeable when handling my recent case for unemployment. Although this was a difficult experience for me, Mr.Fortgang was kind yet assertive. I appreciate everything he has done for me and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an outstanding attorney.
No matter when you need him, "Robert Fortgang is there", he is reliable and informative and very supportive, and he knows his field. On Christmas Eve day my husband was on the road and someone passed him on the right side in a breakdown lane to turn right as he was going straight. Her car struck his back tire in her turning. I reached out to Mr. Fortgang, and he was professional, supportive and said he would be there if he was needed. Although we did not have to hire him as it was resolved. I felt secure in knowing he genuinely cared and gave the verbal support that was needed to get me through and shared a wisdom of how to be supportive to my husband. I strongly recommend Robert Fortgang on the basis of trusting that he will not only support you professionally but he will also show respect and give the support needed emotionally.
Rob and Sarah helped me with a severance agreement. Several alternatives were explained and I was provided with information that helped me fully understand the options and, ultimately, come to a decision. Rob's knowledge of employment law truly did result in the best outcome for me. Just as important, I was kept in the loop through each stage of the process. This was a huge relief for me, knowing that a personal situation was being handled by skilled attorneys who had my best interest in mind.
I recently had Rob review a severance agreement, on referral from another attorney who did not have time to take the case. On very short notice, Rob gave me practical advice, and later helped craft some modifications which were subsequently accepted by the employer. He also answers his own phone--a rarity in his profession! I would highly recommend him for employment/labor matters.
Atty Fortgang spent the time necessary preparing me for the hearing before the DOL. Going into the hearing I felt confident and knew we would walk out with a win, and we did.
If you have an employment issue Atty Fortgang is the Atty you want to handle your case. He takes the time necessary and is sure you understand the proceedings and makes sure you feel comfortable..
I wouldn't hesitate calling on his expertise again.
Mr. Fortgang answers his own phone. He gets right to the heart of the matter. He clarified the legal paperwork I received from the person I sued and helped me find a favorable settlement. I've worked with many attorneys through the years. Mr. Fortgang is one of the best guides I've seen.
Robert and His Staff Sarah went be on the call to help my husband Donald of getting unemployment and helped him get what he was deserved. I appreciate the time and understand that went out for what he did for him. My husband and I thank them both very much.
Once I contacted Rob about my situation he immediately assured me that going forward was definitely going to be worth it, both for my piece of mind and my pocket. Sarah and Rob were always professional, yet both have a great sense of humor and are down to earth people. They show empathy for your situation and are both experts in their field. They always made me feel confident about my case and explained everything in simple terms so I was always aware of what was going on. Their advice was very helpful and I am very grateful to both of them for their great work and all they accomplished on my behalf. I would and have already recommended them to others with employment issues. I would never go anywhere else if I ever find myself in any employment situation again. Rob & Sarah turned a very difficult situation for me into a winning case. I was very pleased with our relationship as it lasted. Great people, Great lawyers.
