"Representing injury victims at their greatest time of need, and helping them receive compensation for their medical bills, wage loss, and the loss of the enjoyment of life is the greatest honor and privilege I have ever known."

 

Over the past two and half decades  I have tried automobile, medical malpractice, liquore liability, employment and sex abuse cases. I feel that I am gifted at telling my clients' story with compassion and empathy and believe that jurors connect with me.  My success is a result of my sincere interest in my clients'problems and my commitment to communicating the facts and the law accurately.

 

I recognized that my clients are looking for both an advocate and a counselor in the litigation process. It can be very difficult to go through litigation and I take my role of leading clients through every phase of the process very seriously.

 

I have secured seven figure recoveries for clients in automobile, aviation, medical negligence, product liability and sexual assault cases.

John Dornik provided a great outcome!
John was really listened to my concerns all throughout my personal injury case. He was a very hard worker and achieved the best possible outcome. I would strongly recommend his work ethic to anyone wanting an advocate on their behalf. He constantly gave sound, logical and friendly advice. What a great guy!!

The Best
In 2012, my husband and I were in a bad car accident that landed us in a level-1 trauma center in Minneapolis. Only a few hours after arriving I received a call from my nephew, a prominent lawyer in Philadelphia (PA), who instructed me not to speak with any lawyers until he found me "the best" in the Cities -- and he was true to his word. John Dornik came highly recommended and has certainly lived up to his reputation. Not only did John prove himself to be a deft negotiator with a masterful grasp of injury law, he is a warm and compassionate human being who never thought twice about making himself available to help us navigate the endless medical and disability forms, or to simply offer a word of encouragement or advice. It is no understatement to say that I'm not sure what we would have done without him! And when it came to negotiating the settlement, he made sure we understood the process and that he had a clear idea of our goals. With the insurance company, he was firm and reasoned. In short, John Dornik truly is the best!!!

John Dornik review
After my call, John was immediately in contact with me at the hospital. He kept me updated on every aspect of my case and that left me to recover without having to worry about bills, statements and everything else related to my car accident. I highly recommend John Dornik to intervene on behalf of any person needing a litigator to act on their behalf!

Expertise and Advocacy
John is intelligent, trustworthy, considerate, and he executes a great strategy on your behalf. He will be frank with you about the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and seek your input regarding major decisions. For me, the legal process was very stressful; John helped me understand what was happening and what to expect. When it came to crunch time, he was brilliant and very comfortable. If you need a little humor, he's got that, too, thank goodness. I would, for your best interests, highly recommend John Dornik.
