Koonz McKenney Has DC’s “Top Lawyers”, Says Washingtonian

By Peter DePaolis

For more than 35 years, Koonz McKenney Johnson & DePaolis LLP has successfully fought for clients in personal injury cases. No other personal injury firm has more attorneys selected by Washingtonian as its “Top Lawyers.”

“We demand full and fair compensation for all of our clients. Every insurance company knows that we are prepared to take any case to trial if we don’t feel our client is being treated fairly,” said attorney Roger Johnson.

“Most of our new clients come from referrals from prior clients and other lawyers, which reflects their satisfaction with our level of service and especially our results,” said Bill Lightfoot.

“Serving injured union members is an important priority,” said David Schloss.

The firm’s attorneys have been consistently elected to leadership roles in local bar associations. Paulette Chapman, a former President of the Bar Association of DC and of the Women’s Bar Association of DC, said, “We enjoy active participation in the legal services arena and our communities.”

The firm’s legacy of leadership and success motivates its attorneys to fight tirelessly for each client. “We strive to treat each client with compassion and care while aggressively pursuing all remedies lawfully available,” said Peter DePaolis.

Koonz McKenney is proud that six attorneys have been chosen by their peers for inclusion in Washington, D.C. Super Lawyers, five have been chosen for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America, and eight have been ranked by the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings as AV Preeminent.
