Happy to be in a field that challenges her intellectually and demands discipline, Bhavini A. Doshi has been an Associate at Decotiis, Fitzpatrick & Cole, LLP in Teaneck, NJ, where her responsibilities include: providing a full range of legal services and representing public and private clients in litigation; investigating facts, developing evidence and analyzing legal matters from legal and practical perspectives; establishing sound, documented bases for advice; engaging in legal research and analysis; independently preparing a full range of legal documents, including correspondence; developing and maintaining liaisons with government agencies and external entities; supervising preparation of legal memoranda and other documents by less experienced attorneys, administrative staff, paralegals and interns; and attending legislative hearings on bills regarding energy efficiency, renewable energy incentives and other matters of interest to her clients. Her accomplishments while working at Decotiis, Fitzpatrick & Cole, LLP include exponentially developing substantial experience in public pension and healthcare benefit laws, and labor and employment issues. Serving as a go-to attorney, Ms. Doshi has selflessly mentored others while providing numerous advisory memos analyzing changes in public employee pension and health benefits law. This has led to public clients being able to avoid complaints and having the necessary protections in place in case of state audits and investigations. Vigorously, Ms. Doshi has been able to defend clients against "whistle-blower" retaliation claims, and against age and sex discrimination claims. She is credited for developing a grievance policy and procedure for employees of Manavi, a non-profit organization that assists survivors of domestic violence in NJ’s South Asian community.
