  • Olga Someras

    Without reservation, I unequivocally endorse Ms. Haney as an exemplary attorney and professional. I had the pleasure of working under Ms. Haney as a student attorney in a legal clinic providing representation to indigent clients in landlord-tenant proceedings in Washington, DC. Ms. Haney was extremely knowledgeable and very well-respected by the other attorneys and judges in court. I learned a great deal about the law and how to practice as an attorney from Ms. Haney, and fully recommend her to any potential clients in the DC metro area.

  • Emilie M Fairbanks

    Dorene and I were opposing counsel on many matters early in my career. She was always respectful of other parties but a fierce advocate for her clients. I'm sure she will be a great asset to her clients in private practice.
