Your Maryland, Virginia and DC Injury Law Firm

By Peter DePaolis

Our Legal Team Protects Victims of Injury Caused by Others’ Negligence

The attorneys at Koonz McKenney Johnson & DePaolis LLP are dedicated to accident prevention and recovery for victims. Our firm tries to make our community a safer place to live for our families. We assist injured workers in the courtroom and in the community at large. We are committed to promoting education and award annual scholarships to children of union workers. This upcoming year, we will be awarding $14,000 in scholarships to children of such dedicated workers.

Our individual attorneys are also committed to giving back to the community. Some of our attorneys serve as directors for various non-profit organizations, coaches for children’s sports teams, and fundraisers for various needy charitable organizations. We are involved in organizations such as the National Safe Kids Campaign, Saint Anselm College, United Bank of Virginia and Big Brothers of Washington, D.C.

Many of our attorneys are also involved in more localized activities. For example, in Northern Virginia, one of our attorneys has volunteered with local organizations such as West Springfield Little League, Burke Soccer Club and the Burke Athletic Club for more than 20 years. In addition, another Washington, D.C. personal injury lawyer at our firm serves as a Member of the Board of Regents in Washington, D.C. Through our community service, we have served as advocates for the better treatment of children, workers’ rights, and increased accessibility for disabled individuals.
