Kind, caring and gets the job done.
I had an absolutely wonderful time working with Robert Norell. He was nothing but compassionate and understand of my needs. Not only did he help me recover the wages that were unpaid, but he helped several of my co-workers in the same situation. Robert treated us with respect and was quick to response as I had questions along the way. I would give him 10 stars if they have that option. If it wasn't clear yet, I highly recommend his services. If you're looking for wage law, look no further. You have a true professional here with Robert Norell.

Fantastic employment attorney
I’ve consulted Mr Norell on several occasions and each time he has been great to work with. He was genuinely interested in my concerns and responded immediately with a plan of action. He is fair, honest, thorough, and always made me feel very comfortable discussing sensitive situations. I highly recommend him and will certainly reach out to him again should I need further consul in this area.

My friend the Attorney.
When looking for some law firm to help me with my case i obviously called a few of the large ones first. they made me fell like a number. id give my name the someone would call but ask some questions. then another call from an attorney to say that there was no case BUT if i gave them some money they try to help me with no guaranty. then one of my kid searched the net and found Robert. to my supersizes he called him self. right of the bat i felt as i was talking to a friend that was looking for the best way to help my cause. i feel at ease and after about a hour on the phone he found a solution for me that some time later it became a nice settlement that went a long way to me recover from my dilemma. If i ever have a problem or anyone i know has a labor dispute he will always be the first one to call. that old saying that lawyers are bottom feeders well he is not and has a place at table right next to me and my family.

Overtime dispute - Great results by Mr. Norell
Mr. Norell was a strong advocate on my behalf.  He was professional and thorough and best of all, he got me results beyond my expectations. He kept me appraised of the development in the case in a timely manner. I would highly recommend his services in any employment-related legal matters.

Terrific Lawyer
I went to Robert Norell approximately one month ago with the fact that my employer didn't want to pay me for the hours that I worked. The employer thought they can get away with it. Robert Norell showed them different. I received my payment for the hours I worked from my employer within one month. He is not only a lawyer but someone who really cares about his client.

Great attorney
Robert is a great attorney that looks out for his clients. Finally, a lawyer that is not all about getting paid! He is very quick in communicating with his clients. He represented me on a discrimination case and we were able to settle before going to trial. I highly recommend him for any labor/discrimination issues.

Exellent attorney and staff
My situation was an easy one to deal with. I worked for an institution for 19 years, I was let go without any compensation. I had an employment contract but it needed to have approval from other institutions in order for the company to pay. They were not easy to deal with and complicated the manner, which they didn't need to. But Mr. Norell fought long and hard and didn't let them get away from their obligations to me.

A 5 Star lawyer
Even though Mr. Norell din't take my case I can say that He is THE BEST . He took all the time to listen to me and analyze my case, in depth. He explained all the options , possibilities of success and negative aspects of my case. I truly understood how my case was not good enough to pursue and felt sad of not knowing him before I made some mistakes that affected my case. I highly recommend Him. Thanks Mr. Norell

5 Stars - Outstanding Employment Law Attorney!
I retained Robert Norell to recover unpaid compensation from a former employer. Throughout the process, Mr. Norell was responsive, informative, and always followed through on what was required to move the case along. Mr. Norell is a hands-on attorney. He personally works the case, learns the details inside and out, and aggressively pursues what is rightfully yours. I could not be more pleased with Mr. Norell's representation and negotiation skills. In the end, Mr. Norell secured a substantial settlement in this case for me. I am grateful I met Mr. Norell and chose him to handle my case. If you have a legal matter with a current or former employer, I highly recommend Mr. Norell's services.

Rob is the Best!!
I cannot say enough good things about Robert Norell. He has helped me with two separate cases, both with positive closure. The most recent concerned unused vacation hours that my previous employer was refusing to pay. Because it was a relatively small amount for my employer, Rob did not charge me for his time HOWEVER, he did take the time to help me draft a letter and told me what verbiage to use to ensure payment. I have and will continue to recommend Rob; he is very professional, kept me informed at all times, is courteous and very much cares for his clients.

Mr. Norell is an outstanding lawyer. From day one he was honest, trustworthy, told me exactly what to and not to expect from my case. He kept me informed, and provided feedback on my opinions and the outcome of my decisions, before I could make a final decision. When the time was right, he made it clear that it was time to end case and close the matter. I would and will refer Mr. Norell to anyone I know that would find themselves in the same situation I was, and wouldn't hesitate in doing so, as well as seeking his services myself, if that would ever be necessary again.

Very personable and expeditious!
Robert was great to work with. I never met him personally but over the phone it was like we knew each other for years. He explained the process thoroughly and always kept me informed when he had contact with the opposing party. My claim was processed and monies granted to me within 2 months! I would and have recommend Robert any time!

GREAT individual. Gives Lawyers a GOOD name.
Great individual. Gratiously acknowledged that I could be better served by a local attorney and called a colleague on my behalf. Absolutely went above and beyond. Very personable and down to earth, with a sense of humor. Very refreshing as this is the first time in my life I have ever even considered obtaining a lawyer or getting legal advise.

A Rarity -- An Attorney with Integrity!
I have dealt with my fair share of attorneys, and Mr. Norell stands alone. When I first called Mr. Norell, he took the time to really listen and did not at all try to pitch me his services. He was candid and helpful. After calling several attorneys, I decided to take my matter to Mr. Norell because he earned my business -- I found him to not only be knowledgeable but to be honest and forthcoming. The matter I required assistance with was not one that he typically takes on, but he did not shy away from it and ended up handling it with great diligence and skill. My situation was truly unjust and recognizing this, Mr. Norell ultimately managed to have the claim against me dismissed -- the best case scenario. Mr. Norell never hounded me for money like other attorneys, but was always focused on finding the best resolution. I truly believe that his approach is unlike other attorneys I have interacted with and this is a testament to his professionalism and goodwill. Throughout what was a very stressful and unpleasant time for me, he exhibited true kindness and humanity at many junctures, for which I am very grateful. However don't take it from me --- He is also known and respected by the legal community-- even the opposing counsel was fond of him, which was useful to initiating good dialogue and negotiating my dismissal. Smart, kind, savvy and hardworking ---It's hard to find an attorney these days that's not focused only on what he can make off you, but instead on what he can do for you-- that's Norell through and through.

Highly recommend!
I came to Mr. Norell's office for help. Came stressed out and lost... And did't even think I would have such a great experience. My case was about workplace discrimination and unpaid wages. I hope I never need his help again :) but I would recommend Mr. Norell to anybody and everybody who is looking for a good, caring, knowledgeable and SMART lawyer.
