Doris did an unbelievable job of helping me. She is very thorough and nonsense and very detailed. I believe she wouldn't take a case unless she thinks she can help someone. I'm very thankful for her help in my matter.

Ms. Doris Dabrowski is very honest, upfront and thorough in her assessment of my situation. She was honest enough to refer me to another exemplary employer attorney to handle a portion of my situation, an unemployment comp benefits situation, since it would have cost her more money to drive the distance for the hearing. How many lawyers would do that? Not only did Ms. Dabrowski refer me to the more local lawyer, but that lawyer, in turn, was as thorough, detailed, dedicated and honest as Doris. I decided not to follow through on my employer situation with Doris, but if I would have, there is no doubt Doris would have done a superb job assisting me either way to determine if I had a case. I felt comfortable and protected by both Doris and her referral attorney Jana Barnett; that hearing assisted by Ms. Barnett was quite favorable given her keen detail and tenacity in protecting and representing her clients.Thank you both so very much for the wonderful devotion and compassion you provide for employees. God bless you.

I received bad fiduciary advice from my penison plan administrator and retired based on this advice. Months after retiring I received my monthly pension plan statement and it was much lower than expected. I knew I needed a lawyer that was an ERISA expert to help me fight the pension determinatiin with my former employer.
I found Doris via the internet. We had an initial consultation where I told her I wanted to fight the case but did not want to waste my money if she thought my case did not have merit.
After reflection, Doris advised me that she believed my case had merit and I engaged her to help.
Doris helped my file an ERISA compliant pension appeal and she wrote an opinion memo to the pension plan administrators. She also worked behind the scenes discussing my case with my former compay's lawyers.
In the end, the pension plan administrator found in my favor and my pension amount was significantly increased. I do not believe my former company would have found in my favor if not for the expert assistance provided by Doris Dabrowski.
I am very satisfied with Doris's work on my behalf and would be very happy to use her services again and to recommend her to anyone.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I have conferred with Attorney Dabrowski on complex employment matters and have worked with her on a program to educate attorneys. She is extremely knowledgeable, wise, and warm--the ideal attorney for any client.
