Hannah Dockendorff, attorney at Milwaukee-based Hupy and Abraham S.C., leads through demonstration and has shown true initiative for someone who has only been practicing for five years, according to colleagues.
Dockendorff’s biggest client win in 2021 was a $59,000 award for a motor vehicle collision in which a distracted driver turned in front of her client. She also assisted attorney Jason Abraham to settle a case for an umbrella policy of $1.3 million.
Dockendorff earned a National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 award in both 2021 and 2022 and was awarded the Association for Women Lawyers Foundation Scholarship. She gives back to many of the organizations that Hupy and Abraham supports including Hometown Heroes, the Wisconsin Humane Society, Sojourner Truth House, Wisconsin Feeding America, SHARP Literacy and Milwaukee Street Angels.
Dockendorff also interned as a civil rights officer for the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development and at Catholic Charities’ refugee and immigration services, and she served as a legal volunteer at the Milwaukee Justice Center.
