5.0 stars 33 totalReview Robert Fortgang
I contacted Robert Fortgang & Associates through his web site (www.fortgangemploymentlaw.com) after my Unemployment Benefit was declined and I had to file an appeal. My case was little complicated and I was desperate to give clear picture to DOL that I was under no fault.
I saw Robert Fortagang for a consultation and hired him. He was patient with me, very professional and thorough and was able to make me feel at ease and well taken care of. He helped me understand the process, the time frames involved, and prepared me for the hearing. He was always replied to my phone and emails.
His presentations to the referee was extremely well versed and given in a very strong professional manner and because of that I was able to win. I felt very comfortable being represented by Robert.
I would strongly recommend Robert Fortgng for any employment/DOL related issues.
I had an unpleasant experience as part of the 'old guard' for a fairly new company whereby the Board of Directors brought in a new President and the new President brought in a number of his own people (hence, I was unfairly demoted and ultimately forced out). I consulted with Mr. Fortgang 3-4 times on what my options where and he was extremely helpful in explaining what they were and what each option would require from me - all prior to determining or charging any fees.
I've never had a reason to consult an employment lawyer in my 25+ year career and was concerned over costs just to determine if I had a case worth pursuing. I was very relieved and pleased with the manner Mr. Fortgang consulted with me in order to determine what my best plan of action would be prior to establishing and charging any fees. Therefore, I would highly recommend Mr. Fortgang to anyone searching for an employment lawyer in the future.
Robert Fortgang has helped our small business whenever we need HR advice. He gives us logical straight-forward answers to our questions. Rob has represented us during a dispute with an employee and we were able to settle with arbitration. We feel like we have a trusted friend on our side.
We have been a client of Robert for over ten years. As an owner of a small business it’s important to have a labor attorney that is knowledgeable and up to date with the ever changing employment and labor landscape. Robert has helped us classify all of our employees, helped us with hiring documents, benefit packages and all other labor related matters. Thanks to Robert we never had any employment related issue. For this I’m very grateful to Robert and will always consult with him when it comes to employments matters. Thank you Robert for helping us make our company a great place to work.
Rob and Katie were both right on top of my case from the start. My phone calls and emails were always answered promptly and their expertise in labor law was obvious. I expected to pursue unpaid overtime only but Rob also went after severance pay and got it. Highly recommended.
Robert and his associates are dedicated professionals who are extremely knowledgeable and responsive to the needs of the client. I have used Robert on numerous occasions in matters related to labor law with great success. I would recommend Robert to anyone in need of employment, labor, discrimination or sexual harassment issues.
It is my privilege to recommend Robert Fortgang, an excellent lawyer who specializes in employment issues. Robert is extremely intelligent – he is very resourceful. He listens to you and provides answers to all your questions. I have consulted him (and his assistant Sarah) more than once and he (and she) has never made me feel like I was a bother – despite such extremely busy schedule they must have. For these reasons, I will always drive an hour and a half to go to this law firm – and not consult with any other attorney other than him (I live in Worcester, Massachusetts area – where many attorneys are abundant – but yet none of them are able to provide the superior client care that he can deliver, and with extreme detail). Any person who finds his/herself facing legal concerns regarding employment should not go anywhere else other than to Robert, as he possess a strong knowledge and genuine interest in helping individuals.

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.

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.
