Joe Fortuno
VA Case Development Team Leader

Our Veteran Comedian

In September 2017, Joe Fortuno began his journey with the firm as VA Leads Specialist. After only a year of qualifying potential new clients in his Leads position, he was promoted to VA Case Manager. Joe was VA Case Manager for 4 and a half years managing our VA clients’ cases and being an essential member of the VA Case Management team. In September 2023, Joe was once again promoted to VA Case Development Team Leader. In his current leadership role, he oversees the VA appeals, hearings, and medical reviewing and submitting teams. Joe loves being able to impart his VA knowledge as well as immersing himself in the inner workings of the VA Case Development team.

Over his years at the firm, he has grown as a person professionally and personally with the help of leadership and his fellow team members. Joe states, “Working here has helped me strive for things that 10 years ago I thought were unattainable.”

Joe was originally born in the Philippine Islands but grew up in Virginia. Joe’s father was in the Navy, so his family moved around quite a bit. Joe went to Marshall University for a degree in education, which explains why he is so excellent at educating and training team members. He’s also working to earn an advanced degree in Psychology to be able to assist veterans further. Joe recently relocated to North Carolina to enjoy the beautiful beaches with his Shiba Inu puppy. In his spare time, Joe devotes his time to his puppy – walking, training, and cleaning the puppy messes he creates. Fun fact: Joe named his puppy Tenshi (Angel in Japanese), which is fitting since Shiba Inus originate from Japan.

Not only is Joe amazing with fellow team members – he’s incredible with our veteran clients as well. This comes from personal experience. Joe spent 8 years active duty as a Combat Engineer where he deployed to Iraq twice and Afghanistan once. He also served 14 years with the WV National Guard as both a Combat Engineer and Construction Supervisor. Joe’s military experience has helped him with firsthand knowledge of what the veterans go through, which helps him build relationships with fellow veteran clients.
