    Robert is an excellent attorney. Not only does Robert have an extensive knowledge of all aspects of employment law on which to base his recommendations to clients, but he is proactive with clients. Robert works with clients to resolve issues and find solutions before litigation starts. If litigation is needed, Robert aggressively represents clients while still leaving the door open to settling when fair settlements are possible. This allows his clients to rest assured that Robert is not only looking out for the client's best interests, but that they get the best possible resolution of their problems with or without going to court.

    Robert is an amazing attorney -- extremely bright, competent, and hardworking. The other side should always be very, very afraid when Robert is their opposing counsel.
