I met Rob around 3 years ago and at that time his knowledge of HR was important to me because of being a small business and not able to hire a full time HR staff member. I could see while working with Rob he not only had the expertise, but he was very easy to work with. His presentation was very relaxed, something I appreciated. He helped groom my office so I was aware of issues that were not in compliance. When I had a disgruntle employee try to sue me, Rob was there all of the way to get me through one of the hardest journeys in my business career. I highly recommend Rob Nuddleman.

I was being threatened by a former associate with a lawsuit and really didn't know what to do. The dollars in dispute were substantial. Mr. Nuddleman took the time to review the related correspondence between myself and the other guy and quickly came up with a number of ideas as to how to resolve the problem.
He was actually able to find a place where the threatening party had actually broken the law in one of his emails to me (I wouldn't have seen it). We decided Robert would write a letter pointing this out among other relevant points.
As result of the letter Robert wrote, I've never heard from the other party again. The token number of hours Robert billed me for the work was just as surprising as how quickly he resolved the matter.
I've recommended Mr. Nuddleman to 2 or 3 people since then and have yet to hear a complaint.

I had a great experience working with Rob Nuddleman. He was recommended to me as one of the 2 best lawyers in the bay area for employment law and after speaking to the 2 lawyers, I was sold on Rob as the person I wanted handling my case. Both lawyers seemed like they would be excellent choices based upon their experience, but whereas the other lawyer seemed to look upon my case as "something to take a flyer on", Rob impressed me immediately with his focus on (and interest in) winning the action.
Rob proceeded to get the case unstuck (which it had been for several months) and into negotiations very quickly. He was able to get the case settled for more than I thought possible (and much more than was being offered), and, he even made sure the fees for all of the excellent work he did were included in the final settlement agreement.

Robert provided me expert advice on unemployment law/defenses and approaches to my case. He has a quiet and respectful demeanor and will tell you if the case can be won. I am greatful to him for all that he has done. I would strongly recommend him to anyone needing an excellent unemployment lawyer.

I endorse Rob without hesitation or reservation. Rob and I together served on the Labor and Employment Section Executive Committee of the Alameda County Bar Association for several years. Not only is Rob a very fine employment lawyer, he is a skilled legal educator. I often rely on Rob's thoughtful writings regarding current employment issues.
