    I endorse this lawyer. I referred a client with a multi-jursidictional employment law matter to Rob. Rob was able to quickly discern the essence of the case, the strengths and weaknesses of the client's legal position, and was able to quickly work to a favorable resolution. At every step of the way, Rob was an effective communicator with both me and the client regarding the legal issues in play, thereby enabling the client to make a well-informed decision as to how best to proceed. I would not hesitate to refer another client to Rob who has employment related issues or questions.
