After suffering a serious injury in D.C., Maryland, or Virginia, you need to make sure you hire the right lawyer—someone who can help you. But how do you know the lawyer you choose really wants to help you or has helped others in similar situations?

When meeting with lawyers you are interested in hiring, ask them about cases that are similar to yours or that stand out in their minds. You can tell a lot from the examples they give you or the case results they share with you. For example, at Donahoe Kearney, a case that stood out to us is getting to help an injured woman who was left unable to do anything for herself. We were able to secure enough compensation for her to get the care she needed and for her family to make sure she was cared for the rest of her life.

When looking for an attorney to represent your personal injury claim, take advantage of free consultations to ask attorneys about the cases they have handled. Feel free to call us and learn more about the people we have represented and the outcomes in those cases. You can reach us for a complimentary consultation at 202.393.3320 or online at
