Review of the hardest working attorney in West Virginia
My case involved an employment contract issue as my employer decided to terminate my employment. My initial consultation with Mr. Fitzsimmons was during an emotional time for me. Bob was very compassionate and empathetic to my situation. Our initial meeting lasted over 1 1/2 hours. He was able to negotiate a comfortable termination package for me.

Personal injury Attorney | Nov 14
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I truly believe Bob is one of the best lawyers in America. As a young lawyer, Bob helped mentor me in my career. As a result, I saw him in trial and depositions in a variety of cases. Bob typically crushed the other side in every case. He always outworked the other side. It didn't matter how much money they had or how many lawyer they had..you couldn't outwork Bob Fitzsimmons. I have seen CEO's of Fortune 500 companies literally shaking while Bob took there depositions. My contacts on the insurance side admit they fear Bob and his firm. They admit they pay top dollars to Bob. I don't know of a lawyer in WV that has more multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. Bob is a warrior in the legal field you don't want to be against in battle. That is simply the fact."
