    I was very fortunate to be represented by Robert Ottinger recently during my severance negotiations from a long time employer. Mr. Ottinger’s counsel was extremely helpful in reaching an expedient and favorable result. I found his expertise, professionalism, attention to detail and accessibility extremely reassuring during a stressful and difficult time. He will thoroughly research all available legal options and help you decide the best course of action. He is in equal measure a fierce advocate as well as a thoughtful advisor. I am forever thankful to him and his staff for all their help. I would recommend them unreservedly to anyone seeking sound and formidable legal representation.

    I was introduced to The Ottinger Firm by way of a relative who gave attorney, Robert Ottinger, a very favorable recommendation. I found Mr. Ottinger to be experienced, knowledgeable, and insightful in all aspects of employment law as his blog will attest. I liked the fact that he prepared cases in a concise, straightforward and compelling manner. Mr. Ottinger was an excellent communicator and always gave me reasonable expectations of the case. He is technically savvy and has utilized technology to better serve his clients. I felt well-represented because of his competency in our case against a large corporate defendant. In the end, I was genuinely pleased with the outcome. I, too, highly recommend Robert Ottinger for those seeking legal counsel in employment matters.

    Robert Ottinger, Esq is a specialist in employment law issues, with particular knowledge in matters relating to academic employment, having worked for (as I understood it) the State University of New York and then having represented clients against several universities (including me). Mr Ottinger listened carefully to the issues I had with my employer, asked excellent questions, looked over all the documentation and then decided that there was indeed a case to be made. He went over what the case would entail and warned about the hurdles involved. He was painstaking in preparing me as a witness; it helped that I had a lot of experience as an expert witness but being a plaintiff was different and he took the time to emphasize those differences. He and the other members of his firm took a lot of time to gather evidence through depositions of relevant witnesses and to get the other side to yield relevant documents. He was thorough and complete in his preparations. He did all he could to bring the matter to a reasonable settlement, and when the other side was recalcitrant, pursued it successfully to a trial to a point where we had picked a jury, at which point the judge successfully pushed the other side to a settlement. I strongly endorse Mr Ottinger and his firm as expert attorneys in the area of employment law; he is knowledgeable, diligent, skillful, dogged, and effective.

    Robert Ottinger was knowledgeable and aggressive in the pursuit of my case, even after the 9/11 attack ruined his NYC office, he still managed to continue and we won my case. He is professional and results oriented but still manages to have a good sense of humor. He is realistic and forthright thus limiting your time and costs. I recommend him.
