If you need a lawyer because of a serious injury or death in your family, you need information on what you can do to protect yourself and your family, about your rights, about your benefits, about resources and about what you need to do.

     Medical malpractice means a hospital or doctor violates a patient safety rule.  A patient is seriously hurt or killed because of a preventable medical mistake.

     An employer ignores a safety regulation, a construction worker is hurt on the job. 

     A driver chooses to violate a Rule of the Road, and causes a serious injury to someone else.  

Malpractice, work injuries and accidents shatter the world of that patient, worker or driver who is hurt or killed but they also affect all of us.  Violating safety rules threatens any one of us who may be a patient, a worker or a driver.  Everyone in the community is at risk when safety rules are violated and people are put in needless danger.

Are we the right law firm for you?

We can't tell you that yet.  We need to know more about why you're here and if this is your first time hearing about us, you need to know more about us as well.

So we invite you to order one of our free guides or books on medical malpractice, resources for special needs and disabled children, workers compensation and serious accidents.  These are all available and free to you

Why did we spend the time and money to publish books, guides and reports on these subjects? 

Well, we believe people should have the information they need to make the best decisions for their situation and their family, whether its how to get started with a case, when to talk to an insurance company, or how to choose a lawyer.

That's our basic philosophy here at Donahoe Kearney, LLP. 

As lawyers, we try to help individual clients and the community as a whole.  Since founding our law firm, we've dedicated our law practice to representing children, patients, working people and families in Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia.  Our cases involve preventable medical errors, work injuries, and serious car accidents that hurt or kill people and we hold hospitals, doctors, insurance companies and reckless drivers accountable - that's all we do. That's how we help.

We don't advertise. 

No TV commercials, pay per click ads, radio ads, newspaper advertisements or anything like that. 

Instead, we built a completely referral based practice.  Our clients come to us through word of mouth, or after learning about us.  As medical malpractice attorneys, we'd rather spend our time and money working on our cases, trying to help people and make the community safer, than on lavish advertising budgets and flashy television ads. 

And we don't pass cases on to a lawyer fresh out of law school.  The people we are privileged to represent deserve to have their case and their cause prosecuted by experienced medical malpractice, personal injury and workers compensation lawyers, certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy.

So order a free book, guide or report that can help and see what some of our clients have to say about working with us.

Practice Areas

Medical Malpractice Medical Malpractice

When hospitals, HMOs and doctors don't follow patient safety rules and harm their patients because of preventable medical mistakes, we provide the answers and the help your family needs. 

It's a process.  And you can't go it alone.


Workers' Compensation Workers' Compensation

We tell everyone we represent exactly what we are telling you.  Workers compensation is about protecting your future. So read our book before you sign anything from an adjuster, case manager or lawyer.

Automobile Accidents Automobile Accidents

Car and truck accidents don't just happen.  Some drivers choose to violate the Rules of the Road, or choose to text while driving, or decide to drink and drive or just don't pay attention on the Beltway.
