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.

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.

Robert and Sarah were excellent at providing guidance upon my separation. They worked in a very professional and effective manner to ensure all incentives were delivered. Just as importantly they greatly lessened the anxiety I had regarding the separation agreement and what items to challenge.

I was wrongfully treated as an Independent Contractor by a major employer. Contacting Atty. Fortgang helped reverse that thinking and resulted in a very pleasant outcome. I would highly recommend his services.

We own and operate 7 businesses with 50 employees in Connecticut. We hired Rob Fortgang to represent us in a very important employment case. He was great to deal with, was well respected by the Department of Labor people, had great knowledge of employment law and as a result Rob saved us thousands of dollars. When we have any questions about employment law, we immediately call Rob. He reponds very quickly with great advice.
Because Rob represents both employees and employers, he sees both sides of most any issue. As a result, he is extremely fair and has always helped us to make the right decisions.
Rob is easy to talk to and is a pleasure to deal with, I highly recommend him!

I have known Rob for 30 years. He has represented me on several occasions during that time. He, successfully negotiated a separation contract that provided me an extra level of opportunity. Those negotiations resulted in my later providing three additional years of contract consulting to my former employer.
He successfully represented me in a contract dispute with a positive outcome. He treated me with compasion, hard work and kept me fully informed through out the process. He passionately leaves no stone unturned to get you to the desired result.

Rob has always been very responsive and helpful in any labor issues/questions we have had. He represented us well on WC hearing and is one of the fairest, honest, and most knowledgable attorneys I have ever known. He assisted us in setting up our employee handbook and we were very pleased with his work in that regard.

I was referred to Atty. Fortgang due to being terminated. The outcome surpassed my expectations. His knowledge and professionalism proves that using the right attorney for your situation makes all the difference. I highly recommend Attorney Robert Fortgang.

Robert Fortgang is not only a superior attorney but a man of immense integrity and spirit. His professional demeanor and reassuring calmness was evident from our very first conversation. He was incredibly accurate and highly organized with respect to each and every one of my concerns. Much of the damage in my situation had already been done. However, Mr. Fortgang was able to reverse some of the adverse issues and essentially corrected a terrible situation to the best final resolution. I would highly recommend his services under any circumstance.

I never thought that working with a lawyer could be such a pleasure. Robert Fortgang maintains a remarkable balance between expert knowledge, relationship management and high integrity. He helped me negotiate a very successful layoff/retirement from my company without having to go to suit. He has a great sense of humor and really knows what he's doing. I wouldn't think twice about bringing my business to him again.

Attorney Fortgang is a pleasure to work with. As a small business owner, I use Rob and his team for many legal issues: contracts & agreements, debt collection, and advice on employees who work in several different states. Atty. Fortgang is very knowledgable in all aspects of our business needs.

For the first time in thirty years, I found myself unemployed and facing the possibility of going to court over a non-compete complaint. Rob put me at ease and clearly presented all of my options. An out of court settlement was satisfactory to me considering actions I had taken prior to consulting with Rob. I will never leave a job again without seeking his guidance first.

Our firm has used Robert Fortgang for delicate employment issues, human resource advice, employee manuals, and benefit guidance for over 25 years. Attorney Fortgang has the ability to understand our culture and give us sound advice based on what he knows we can and will do in a given situation. He never takes the " cookie cutter" approach realizing all companies and their management are different. Yet, he is able to help us take the emotion out of a situation and articulate exactly the correct course of action. He is an incredible lawyer with keen insight and talent yet understands the deeper needs of his clients. I would use no other attorney for any Labor or Employee related issue.
