Colleen M. Malchow
Workers’ Compensation Attorney
As an injured worker, you have just as much right as any insurance company to have a team of high-quality attorneys fighting on your side. I spend every day working my hardest to get the best possible outcome for my clients. Insurance companies have teams of experienced, high-quality attorneys working their hardest to minimize the amount of money the carrier has to pay to you. They know that you are out of work and hurting, doing everything you can to provide for yourself and your loved ones. They know that you are in a tough spot. They know the ins and outs of the system and they are very skilled at getting injured workers to take less money than they deserve.
My job is to the level the playing field. Myself, my partner Holly Schoenborn and the entire team of hard-working, experienced attorneys here at Dolce Panepinto have years of experience handling insurance companies and their attorneys.
I was born and raised in Western New York. My father, A Vietnam Veteran, worked for Bethlehem Steel and then spent 28 years with the United States Post Office. My mother has worked in a doctor’s office for the past 25 years. Their commitment to their careers has shaped my strong work ethic and dedication to my profession.
Before practicing law, I worked as a domestic violence advocate at Haven House, a local women’s shelter. I learned firsthand how intimidating the legal world can be and how easy it is to get overrun by the system. It was my work with victims of domestic violence that prompted me to attend law school.
I became determined to fight for people who do not have the knowledge of the system or the resources to fight for themselves. Our practice is based on a contingency fee so if you don’t get paid, then neither do we. The Dolce Panepinto team believes that you have just as much right to a quality attorney and we are dedicated to leveling the playing field for workers and their families.
