I am pleased to recommend Attorney Barbara Zabawa.
Attorney Zabawa has served in two very important capacities for the National Association of Social Workers, Wisconsin chapter. First she has taught two workshops on “Social Work and the Law” and co-taught a workshop entitled, “Social Work Ethics and Boundaries and the Law”. She received excellent evaluations from attendees for all three of these workshops and provided invaluable information.
Secondly NASW WI hired Ms. Zabawa to research and write a legal brief for us regarding whether the Department of Health Services, State of Wisconsin was adhering to the law in their refusal to reimburse licensed clinical social workers for mental health services in public schools and in-home settings. Ms. Zabawa’s outstanding brief assisted us in the passage of legislation requiring the Department of Health Services to reimburse licensed clinical social workers for mental health services in the public schools. We are also currently using her brief to persuade the Department of Health Services to make changes to current regulations to permit reimbursement in in-home settings.
