Here is a copy of my review that I posted a few minutes ago:
Dave is a very skilled and caring attorney. You can rest assured he is looking out for "your best interests". He is bright and creative and has honed his trial skills under the tutuledge of one of the top trial attorneys in the United States-the one and only Gerry Spence. His passion to help discriminated people obtain "legal justice" is a true beacon of light and a safe harbor in the current economic darkness covering the State of Michigan.
David Kotwicki is an excellent attorney. He is the "big gun" to bring in when you need to. I had a problem with an employer and I wouldn't have got a dime without Mr. Kotwicki's help. Thank you so much for everything.
Mr. Kotwicki handled my unemployment case very effectively. My employer fired me for false reasons, then attempted to deny my unemployment. Mr. Kotwicki prepared me thoroughly & effectively for my hearing, and I won
Mr. Kotwicki certainly is not AFRAID to correct what is illigal. I am a disabled veteran and the government terminated me. I wanted to claim discrimination, but they claimed bad conduct. I was in a very tough spot. I was offered a last chance agreement to keep my job, but I had to waive any lawsuit or complaint towards them. Believe me, I wanted to pursue action against them to the fullest extent of the law. Mr. Kotwicki took an entire weekend to closely analyze my case and on Monday I got my job back. Kotwicki negotiated all of the illigal aspects of the agreement out of their proposal and demanded he correct their wrongs. They backed down. Dave was not afraid. He advised me to sign his agreement, I got my position back, and my employer has truly backed down. I am impressed. Mr. Kotwicki has been able to predict their every move from his experience. Highly recommended, but you have to listen to his reasoning. Trust me, in the end, it is right. I'm not bothered now. I can work in peace
Like others, this lawyer cancelled appointments after I was already in the parking lot. He was sick a lot. I paid him a great deal of money to defend a wrongful termination case. After I lost, he was supposed to file an appeal. Although we were on contingency, he took thousands more from me, saying he needed that money to prepare and file the appeal. Well, he took my money, but never filed the appeal, and I never got my money back. He also left out crucial evidence that would have proven my innocence, which has ultimately ruined my case, even at the Supreme Court level. He has left me destitute and with nowhere to go, and I cannot get another job. Run as fast as you can to another lawyer. Save your money for an honest and competent lawyer. DO NOT USE HIM!
