The attorneys and staff of Koonz McKenney Johnson & DePaolis LLP this holiday season came together to make a total gift of over $10,000.00 to D.C.’s Bread for the City. This is the firm’s 5th year of support for this great organization and our largest gift to date. Partners Roger Johnson, Bill Lightfoot, and Marc Fiedler, along with several other colleagues met with Bread for the City Executive Director George Jones and Development Director Kristin Valentine in our office on December 19th, 2012 to present our donation.
Roger Johnson stated that “we are grateful for the work that Bread for the City does for Washington’s neediest citizens and this is simply our firm’s way of supporting their important mission.”
For the second year, Koonz McKenney Johnson & DePaolis LLP would like to shine a light on the important mission of Bread for the City providing vulnerable residents of Washington, D.C. with comprehensive services including food, clothing, medical care, legal, and social services in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.

Washington, D.C. injury attorney Kelly Fisher continues to serve as a co-chair for the Women’s Bar Association’s Community Projects Committee. Earlier in 2010, she helped organize an event with A Wider Circle at Johnson Middle School in Southeast D.C. WBA members and their families spent the day preparing a portion of Johnson Middle School to be used for summer school by scrubbing the floors, cleaning lockers, and organizing classrooms. It was hard work but well worth it!
In November 2010, Kelly Fisher helped organize a donation drive with the Women’s Bar Association for A Wider Circle’s Well Mother, Well Baby Program. Employees at Koonz McKenney Johnson & DePaolis LLP contributed money and items for baby shower baskets. In total, the WBA was able to donate 17 baby baskets to be given to expecting mothers.
