There is not even a word in the dictionary that can describe Lisa Bertini and I say that with the utmost compliment and respect because it is better than extraordinary.

Lisa Bertini is the BEST lawyer that I have ever seen and she truly cares. When it was all over; she had tears in her eyes. I get tears this very moment just thinking of it. Please do not take this the fact she had tears as a weakness. Her heart is in justice and you can see that and she Lisa fights hard. You also do not want to piss her off; however that is the very kind of lawyer you want.

She puts in beyond 100 percent effort in your case. She is by far the most amazing person and the best lawyer I HAVE EVER MET and I was taught by lawyers in college. She works hard; and I have never in my life seen a lawyer give as much effort as she has; that is a promise. It just makes me wonder what inspired her, what happened in her life for her to be so great.

I will forever be grateful for Lisa Bertini and there is no words of gratitude that can be expressed. This woman will make it to heaven, no doubt. I can only pray that while here on this earth; that she has the perfect life, prosper, and gifted with everything she wants in life for it is so much deserved. Lisa Bertini restored my faith and Justice.

She knows the laws; she works hard like I have never seen before. She will work hard for you; I promise and she is honest. She is a hero and an Angel. There are just no words to describe such an extraordinary truth of Lisa Bertini.”

Forever Grateful and thankful. – T.M.

“Lisa Bertini always provided the utmost in professional guidance that was dependable, prompt and forthright. If difficult topics needed to be discussed, then she did so with the directness necessary, and always with compassion not often experienced in litigation. I would recommend her legal services to anyone, and have.” – KH

“Ms. Ruege paid careful attention to my work issue, suggested a course of action, sent a demand letter suggesting positive outcomes in exchange for the cooperation of my employer, and the following week, my employer notified me that the outcome I had requested, which they had denied, would now be granted. Ms. Ruege was efficient, supportive, and accessible in handling my matter. I highly recommend her, as I am very pleased with my outcome.

Lisa is by far the best attorney that I have ever encountered! Right up front, she was honest with me as to what the end results would be. I shopped around for an attorney to find what I felt was the best. I was steered towards other attorneys because of their “years of experience”, however, I felt most comfortable with Lisa. She won my case, hands down!

Ms. Ruege was not only professional but compassionate and supportive in my case. She was honest in her expectations and well prepared for my Unemployment Benefits Hearing. She also took the time to prepare me before the hearing. I would highly recommend her!” – Chuck

Lisa is an amazing attorney and I am so glad I found her. I was in one of the most difficult situations of my life, and at risk of losing my beloved, chosen profession as well as my livelihood. I felt so bad hopeless, but I knew that I had to defend myself. After meeting and talking with Lisa, right away she put me at ease. She was honest and straight forward, yet very understanding. And she really listened. I knew she was the right attorney for me. Lisa was with me every step of the way. She prepared me, guided me and instilled in me the confidence I needed to proceed through this ordeal. Things turned out very well for me. I had the best outcome and was able to protect my career and reputation. Lisa is so organized and thorough and like I said, she is honest. Lisa is just really good at what she does. She saved me and I will forever be grateful.”

“After being wrongfully terminated, I worked with Andrea Ruege and am so thankful I met her! Andrea helped me navigate the EEOC process & Unemployment appeals. She is professional, friendly and incredibly intelligent. Throughout the process, Andrea kept me informed of what to expect at each step. She was always quick to answer my calls & emails and always shot me straight about my situation. There were no surprises – Andrea always gave me a realistic understanding of what I was facing. She made sure I was fully prepared before our EEOC Mediation so that I felt completely confident in my testimony. The whole process could have been very stressful and upsetting but Andrea had a way of minimizing those feelings. She treated me like I was a longtime friend or family member. I knew that I was her top priority & she was doing anything and everything she could to get a positive outcome. Andrea is well versed in the law, well spoken & overall a nice person. I enjoyed working with her and enjoyed it even more when I got an exceptional outcome to my case. I highly recommend Andrea Ruege to anyone in need of an attorney. You will not be disappointed.” – Chelsea
“In 30 years of retail, I never had to hire an attorney. I was very reluctant to do so due to cost etc.. I met with Lisa Bertini and presented my case. I told her my employer never settles no matter what. Her and her team, put an exit strategy together for me. I was correct my employer at first said no deal, we wish you the best. Lisa then began negotiating with my employer’s attorney. She kept me posted daily .She was able to get me a very nice settlement and resolve all of this within 15 days. If you want someone to FIGHT for you, her and her team are the ones to hire.” – MS

“After my initial consultation with Andrea Ruege and for the first time (after over a year being represented by another attorney), I felt like someone really cared about what I’ve been through. Andrea was genuine and honest about what to expect and what she can do to help make right the wrong that happened to me. She even read my case file before my initial consultation – to me that spoke volumes of the kind of attorney she is. She is quick to respond and has worked very hard on my case. Andrea Ruege is an exceptional attorney who truly cares. I only wish I had gone to Bertini Law over a year ago. And I can’t thank her enough for what she’s done for me so far and all that she is continuing to do for me.” – M.D.

“Lisa Bertini is very easy to work with, I was feeling a little overwhelmed by this case and her experience and knowledge of the law gave me enormous comfort. She listened to all that I said, then explained the process step by step and presented the options. Lisa and the entire staff are true professionals they worked hard on my behalf, always keeping me informed while providing support throughout the process. I’m happy to say that Lisa was able to resolve my claim quickly and efficiently. I can move on content that this case is settled. I would absolutely recommend Lisa Bertini. ” – Cindy
“I contacted Lisa Ann Bertini’s office seeking counsel on my legal rights and options regarding a hostile and abusive work environment. Lisa met with me in her office very quickly and it was immediately clear that she was not only a highly knowledgable attorney, but she was also compassionate and genuine. Lisa clearly communicated with me what actions were necessary in order to maintain my legal rights and she assisted me in every measure, from answering basic questions to specifically guiding me as I communicated with my employer and Human Resources. She was realistic with me about my options, yet empathetic as though she understood the anger and injustice herself. There was little potential for financial reward for either of us, but Lisa was persistent in negotiating a severance for me so that I would have the ability to leave an employer that failed to appropriately address persistent complaints by myself, and others before me, of harassment and discrimination. In my research regarding this specific area of employment law, I have read that claims of discrimination and hostile environments can be difficult to prove. Through repeated denials by my employer of any illegal or abusive behavior, Lisa stood her ground and she stood by me. Lisa believed me and she gave me an opportunity to have my experience heard in the hopes that this would not happen to another person. There is a lot of healing that takes place when we are validated and I am grateful to Lisa for both her legal counsel and support. I highly recommend Lisa Ann Bertini as legal counsel in Employment Law and encourage you to contact her if you suspect that you are being negatively impacted in your work environment. “
“Lisa, thank you for what you did, not only for the help in financial recovery but also for bringing some sense of closure. Best wishes to you! ” – G.A.
“Lisa you’re an awesome attorney.. I can’t thank you enough.. I also really appreciate you keeping all the nasty things they said to yourself. I didn’t need to hear them. My feelings were already hurt enough. I also love the fact that you were straightforward with me. Thank you ” – D.M.
“Ms. Bertini treated me like a real person who needed help out of an extremely bad work environment. (Another attorney I had spoken with earlier basically laughed off my case!) Ms. Bertini immediately took command, asked the right questions and went to work. My severance was negotiated entirely within a week and she got exactly what I asked for. While I do not know the specifics, I can tell you she had a strategy and she was not at all afraid to go back for more, even after a “final offer” was on the table!” – S.K.
“I’ve never seen such a professional, efficient, no BS attorney. My wife and I were both impressed. We received a very positive letter approving me from the employment commission. My wife and I sincerely appreciate your professional, direct, information packed consultations and the support of your professional staff. ” Be Well. Fair Winds and Following Seas, C & H
“I had been obstructed by the City’s HR for over two and half years after having lost wages and HR saying there was nothing they could do. As soon as Lisa Bertini got involved all of the sudden HR saw the light and agreed to the back wages lump sum and to increase my pay 10%. As an added benefit to future city employees in this predicament HR stated they have changed their procedures so if a person gets into the same situation as I was in, they will be able to transfer to another position temporarily until the issue is resolved without a pay cut.

Lisa Bertini’s intervention has relieved a major stress and financial inequity from my shoulders and helped guide city HR doctrine for the better. Thank you very much.” – H.M.

” …The next spring, at the first supervisor meeting of the year, 11 men were promoted. It felt like they had promoted everyone who they could have promoted, except me. It felt flagrant. It was as if because I had complained about men getting promoted and been out spoken that I felt the females supervisors were being treated differently, that I had been denied promotion. I went home that night and decided my options were: quit, be upset, or do something. Choosing quit or choosing to be upset would just pass the burden along; I would make it someone else’s problem. I googled what to do, found the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, EEOC, went to Norfolk, and filed a charge…

I needed to find an attorney, someone who was really there for me. I found that and so much more. My attorneys, Lisa Bertini and Courtney Williams, have been there for me in every possible way. It’s humbling that these women believed in me, my case, and my cause so deeply that they are willing to fight so hard and sacrifice so much purely for the principle and not the money…” Robin

“In looking for an attorney to represent my case, another attorney told me that there was only ONE person he would recommend: Lisa Bertini. As someone who fights for the underdog, she not only fought the good fight, she WON a settlement. I don’t know what I would have done without Lisa, and I will always be grateful for her professionalism, thoroughness, and understanding. I recommend Lisa Bertini whole-heartedly!” – CC
“No one desires to be in an uncomfortable environment in the workplace, especially when you spend over 50% of your day at work. There are some employers that do not respect their employees and often the employee feels as if they are in a fixed fight and no matter what, they are going to lose. I am grateful to this day for selecting Lisa Bertini as my attorney; she put on her boxing gloves and fought for me with integrity. She is professional, compassionate, dedicated, and never made me feel like I was just another client or case. She listened attentively and did an amazing job handling my case. She was extremely responsive to emails, phone calls, and kept me well informed. Even though I know she was busy, she never treated me like I was an interruption to her day and always welcomed my questions and feedback. Although I would never want anyone to walk a mile in my shoes; Lisa assured me that we would take the appropriate actions to gain a viable solution. Reflecting on the circumstances now, I wish I would have called her much sooner. I would highly recommend Lisa if you desire an attorney that is ethical and who will fight for you. I sincerely appreciate Lisa and her team for everything they did for me to gain justice.” – Graciously submitted by RB
“Nobody wants to be put in a situation late in life where you are without a job. I was employed with a fortune 500 company for over twelve years. I knew the reason for losing my job was not my fault. I decided I had to do something about it. I had heard many good things about Lisa Bertini who is an employment law attorney. After reading about Lisa and her partners on the internet I was convinced that Lisa would be able to handle a company of this magnitude. Lisa was fantastic in everything she did. She was extremely knowledgeable and she was clearly not afraid to take on a BIG COMPANY. From our initial meeting to the end of my case, Lisa kept me informed every step of the way. Most of all she was compassionate, she not only was my attorney but she was like a friend too. If I needed to talk to her, it didn’t matter what time of day it was, she would respond. Even though this was a situation I would not wish on anyone, Lisa Bertini made me feel like we were on the right road to recovery. She was right, I am now able to retire and get on with my life comfortably. I would highly recommend Lisa Bertini and this firm to anyone who wants to win and win big. Thank you Lisa for being there for me and my family.” – Anonymous
“I am yet another who is fortunate to have found Lisa Bertini! Not only did she handle my case in a most professional manner but also treated me compassionately when I was quite ill and needed understanding. Had it not been for her expeditious handling of my case, I honestly don’t know what I would have done! I was kept informed throughout the process, and considering the nature of my case and its uncertainty, I so appreciated her belief in me and straightforwardness about everything. Her entire group truly goes to bat for its clients. I hope to never need Lisa Bertini’s services again; however, I keep the number in my speed dial and highly recommend her and the law firm of Bertini & Hammer to anyone who needs her assistance! ” – A. C. S.
“I never imagined myself in a situation needing to seek legal counsel. However, life throws you a curve sometimes. After hearing Lisa Bertini’s name suggested to me multiple times, it became clear to me who I needed to contact. Once in communication, Ms. Bertini was quick to work with me to gather details and educate me on the next steps. She worked through the process in a professional manner and kept me up-to-date every step of the way. I am now able to recommend Ms. Bertini myself and am delighted to do so. ” – KDF
“I am so glad that I found Lisa Bertini! Considering the nature of the case and the uncertainty, I so appreciated her belief in me and her straightforwardness about everything. Lisa and her group are so good at what they do; they’ve got everything covered and truly go to bat for their clients. I found it so easy to trust them, their judgment, their guidance, and they kept me in the loop at each step through this. In the best way possible, I hope I never need Lisa’s services again…but if I do, there is absolutely no one else I will trust. And I will continue to recommend Lisa Bertini to everyone I know. .” – MZ
“I, like many others, was a victim of sexual harassment by my employer. This event brought about great consternation and I was uncertain of what my rights were, but I knew they had been violated. I sought professional legal counsel from Lisa Bertini to assist in my pursuit for justice. The advice offered was understandable, informative and provided a sense of relief in knowing Lisa understood my situation. Besides providing all the reasonable expectations, professionalism and knowledge, Lisa offered a level of empathy that was unexpected. This genuine concern gave me a positive outlook on my circumstances. As a result of Lisa’s efforts I became informed, had my dignity restored and was granted a very fair settlement for the treatment I endured. I know my outcome would have been far less than favorable and unjust without Lisa’s impressive expertise and support.” – JD
“Lisa Bertini accepted my case and worked extremely hard for me, on a case so difficult and tenuous, no other lawyer that I asked would accept. Lisa and her staff’s diligence and attention to detail were gratifying, leaving nothing unexplored. Lisa fought with such tenacity, I felt as if I were part of her own family. She delivered a just settlement for me, against, practically insurmountable odds. I chose Lisa Bertini and she took me as her client, for that I am grateful. There would not be an attorney anywhere, other than Lisa, who I would want to represent me.” – L. Robinson
“From the first contact, this law firm provided the finest customer service I have ever experienced. All phone calls/emails were responded to expeditiously. Lisa Bertini immediately put me at ease with her straightforward, no punches pulled style, giving an honest assessment, and laying out realistic expectations concerning my issues. I am extremely pleased with the results. Should I ever need legal services again, a call to this firm, and Lisa Bertini, will be the only call I will have to make.” – Danita J.
“When you are confronted with a legal concern you need someone who is able to see you as an individual, not just as another legal problem. Lisa Bertini has that rare ability to put you at ease and to present information in a clear precise way that helps you to become a real part of the process. Her legal knowledge and tenacity is second to none. I would not consider going to anyone else if I need legal assistance in the future.” Jane W.

Contacting Lisa Bertini was unequivocally the best decision I ever made!” Laura W.
