A Law Firm Dedicated to Helping the Injured, One Client at a Time

By Peter DePaolis

At Koonz, McKenney, Johnson & DePaolis L.L.P., we have represented people in all facets of personal injury litigation for over a quarter century.

Our Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia injury lawyers protect the rights of workers, and speak out for those hurt by defective products, exposure to dangerous substances—such as asbestos—or hazardous work places.

We work with clients who have been injured in:

  • Construction site accidents, where, for instance, partner William Lightfoot recovered $1.8 million for a worker who fell through a hole in a roof while on a construction site.
  • Pedestrian accidents, like the recovery of $1.2 million for the family of a 95-year-old man who was struck and killed by a van whose driver was distracted by his cell phone.
  • Medical malpractice, such as the retrieval of over $750,000 for the wife and son of a 46-year-old man who died as a result of a blood clot in his heart, a preventable tragedy.

Our staff offers unmatched legal representation. We have easily accessible offices in Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C.:

In the District, our offices are in the James Monroe Building. We’re in suite 450, and the address is 2001 Pennsylvania Ave. NW. The phone number for that location is (202) 659-5500.

We also have a Maryland office at 6301 Ivy Lane, suite 700, in Greenbelt. You can call that branch at (301) 345-5700.

If Virginia is more convenient for you, we have a Fairfax office, too. It’s located at 10300 Eaton Place in WillowWood Plaza. You’ll find us in suite 200, and the number there is (703) 218-4410.

Our efforts in these three jurisdictions have established our reputation as Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia injury lawyers who work tirelessly in the local and federal courts. Our primary goal is to represent injured people, and we are proud to do it one client at a time.

Accordingly, we will not represent corporate clients or insurance companies. We only represent individuals who have been injured through no fault of their own, including those eligible for workers’ compensation or Social Security disability benefits.

We strive to make our community a better place. If you or a family member has been injured through another party’s negligent actions, call us right away. You can also email us your case information for a free consultation and a summary of what we can do for you.

Did You Know? William Lightfoot once received the “Good Scout” Award from the Boy Scouts of America in recognition for his work to better our community.
