I had to call him and tell him that a verbal hearing had been scheduled,he new nothing about it nor did he care.I made 2 trips from Denver to Chicago that he suggested,the first time he accepted a postponement hearing after we had arrived for a scheduled hearing costing us a night in Chicago for NO REASON.The next hearing date was useless as well,he's more concerned with assisting the opposing Atty. than who he is representing.PLEASE DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE IN SELECTING AN ATTY. TO REPRESENT YOU THIS ONE IS SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY PLUS.I waited nearly 5 years for my settlement,after a serious neck surgery and received an insulting award for my pain.They cut off my payments early for which he did nothing to appeal.I lost my home because of that.DO NOT SIGN WITH THIS POOR POOR EXCUSE OF REPRESENTATION .How he continues to practice is beyond me,save yourself the grief that I experienced.

Dave menchetti finds a way to make it seem like he knows hes nothing but in reality he talks over you, gives you an attitude and make it seems like he's done everything he could when in reality he's done nothing but work with the other lawyers to make sure he's taken care of. he does not keep you informed about your case I had to call in multiple times for info and i got no answers from him. I went 4 months without hearing from him I've gotten more information from my doctors than I did from him. he doesn't call you instead he sends you a letter through the mail. he refuses to meet with me on multiple occasions I never meet him. did not fight for me to get paid from workers comp, he did not fight for me to get treatment, now if I go to another lawyer he still gets paid for doing nothing. He is a sorry limitation of the lawyer and I wouldn't recommend him to my enemies. if I could sue him I will. years have gone by and he's done nothing for me

Case was back in July 2011. He was very RUDE and ARROGANT. This guy NEVER keeps you informed on anything that is happening with your case. Assumes you know all the precedings that go on with a WORKMANS COMP CASE!!!! Sometimes I had the feeling that he was working with the other side and more concerned on working a deal out with the other side to line his own pockets with extra cash!!! Give me a lower amount and get an "EXTRA" kick back from the other sides lawyers!!! He makes you TRY to feel like he is above all and won't even let you speak on the phone!!!! DO NOT GO WITH THIS LAWYER!!!! THERE HAS TO BE SOMEONE ELSE BETTER FOR YOU!!!! This is just a warning!!! I'am not the type of person to waste time negatively reviewing someone; but this is WELL WORTH THE TIME!!!! Even if this keeps one worker from using him; I would be completly satisfied!!! STAY AWAY PEOPLE!!!!!
David Kosin, Workers compensation Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I endorse this lawyer without reservation. David is an exceptional attorney, concentrating in Illinois Workers' Compensation law. He is one of, if not the most active attorneys personally working to ensure that the Act remains viable and provides benefits to injured workers as it was intended to do. You will not find a more competent and knowledgeable attorney practicing before the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission.
