Excellent attorney
I recently retained David for a complex labor employment issue involving wrongful termination, harassment, bullying and age discrimination. David proved to be extremely knowledgeable and helped me navigate the process of negotiating with a corporation and their team of attorneys. David was responsive, provided great guidance, communicated professionally with opposing attorneys, and helped me to a successful resolution. I would recommend David for labor employment issues.

Severance Agreement
I was referred to Mr. Kotwicki by another attorney. I recently was presented a severance package at a union job. He was quick at reviewing my paperwork and his fee was very reasonable.

I recently hired Mr. Kotwicki to help me with a difficult employment case, and he was knowledgeable, professional, and communicative throughout the entire process. He was able to articulate the complexities of the case in a way that I could understand, and he was always available to answer my questions. He was also very thorough in his preparation and was able to anticipate potential issues that might arise. I would highly recommend him to anyone with an employment-related legal issue.

CEO is very Satisfied!
David took the time to drive across town to make sure I had everything I needed when faced with a critical meeting. He armed me with all of the legal points I needed to make after being falsely accused. Very good lawyer. So happy I retained his services.

Mr. Kotwicki was referred to me by a reputable mutual friend. One who has the utmost confidence and trust in Mr. Kotsivki's representation. The kind of referral you hope for especially knowing they would retain Mr. Kotwicki for their own family if they ever needed to. Mr. Kotwicki believed in me, took my case on in representing me and overseeing my case through to the end. I was determined to not let what happened to me in my darkest hours not go unnoticed or unspoken. Honestly, I could not have done this alone without his professional help, knowledge and his legal experience. With the unfortunate challenges/obstacles I was continuously enduring. He is by far a very trusting attorney. Trust and believe Mr. Kotwicki is the attorney and legal representation to have on your side. You will not be dissapointed and the best attorney referral I have received Heartfelt thank you. Lorena

Knows your rights!
David was extremely helpful. He was able to assist in a difficult unemployment issue I was having the very same day. Helped prepare professional letters, answers to my questions and responded to text messages immediately. He was able to reinstate my unemployment within a matter of days during stressful times. Highly recommended!

Excellent Results
I needed David's representation on very short notice. He quickly assessed my situation and sent a quick and effective message to opposing counsel that resulted in a far better outcome than I could have expected. Moreover, he was on top of the case on a minute-to-minute basis, reaching out with phone calls and texts to keep me up-to-date on developments. If you need quick, aggressive action, definitely call David.

Forever grateful I had David Kotwicki by my side
I filed a disability discrimination with EEOC and EEOC schedule a Fact Finding Conference. I didn't know where to turn and was overwhelmed trying to address the matter myself. I searched and searched for a lawyer but either they would not help me or they were too expensive. I finally found David Kotwicki. David immediately saw what was happening to me was unlawful, David was empathetic, compassionate, and supportive. From my first meeting with Mr. Kotwicki I knew I could trust him, he was attentive and concerned about me as a person as well as my case. Mr. Kotwicki was able to negotiated a monetary settlement for me and negotiated other benefits for me such as health insurance. If I went to the EEOC's Fact Finding Conference without Mr. Kotwicki I would of walked out of there with absolutely nothing, not even a job. I would definitely recommend David Kotwicki to anyone and everyone. I was 100% satisfied with Mr. Kotwicki service and advocacy. When you meet David Kotwicki you will see immediately that he's knowledgeable and an experienced lawyer. Mr. Kotwicki will work to protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.

Sexual Harassment Case
I hired David to assist me with an employment / sexual harassment case and it recently settled in my favor. David did an excellent and thorough job and was fair and compassionate throughout the entire process. It was a long, emotional process but David communicated with me on a regular basis and was always available and easily accessible for questions and consult. I would highly recommend David and plan to refer him to anyone who might be able to use his services in the future as well.

David Kotwicki was the only attorney that would even sit down and listen to my issue others didn't want to have anything to do with the case because the City was in bankruptcy. He and his associates listened to me and assisted me not only making changes in the work place but also obtaining a settlement EVEN during the bankruptcy. I believe he heard about the case and believed that it was worth a risk to make a positive change. I will be forever thankful!
