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.

I endorse this lawyer. Rob has extensive experience in employment controversies and diligently stays on top of this rapidly changing legal specialty. I have been adverse to Rob's client and have sat as an arbiter in a case he presented. In both instances, he was thorough, well prepared and creative in his approaches to the situations. He always presents his clients in a logical, forthright manner, and therefore avoids the confusion and entanglements displayed by lessfocused lawyers. I recommend Rob highly as an intelligent and resourceful problem-solver. Charles D. Houlihan, Jr.

I endorse this lawyer's work. For over 35 years I have made referrals to Rob on matters of his expertise. He is one of the finest attorneys I have ever met, very intelligent and perceptive. I had the pleasure of watching him in action, when we shared offices and in the courtroom. Matters beyond my practice were always referred to Rob and he never let me down. As counsel for a small business association, I had many inquiries that needed follow-up by an outside attorney. Rob was always available to help these folks.
