REGAN ZAMBRI LONG PLLC Catastrophic Injury, Medical Malpractice, Nursing Home Abuse

PHOTO BY LAURIE DEWITT

Over the past 24 years, the trial lawyers of Regan Zambri Long have built one of Washington D.C.’s most recognizable injury and medical malpractice firms. The efficient team of nine attorneys upholds its reputation for winning high-stakes and precedent-setting cases, which is exemplified by having secured more than $500 million in settlements and verdicts. These results have directly benefited the victims and the families of those injured or killed by the wrongdoing of others. “We ensure our clients have the strongest possible voice in court,” said president and senior partner Patrick Regan. “We strive to secure maximum compensation, but also to make a difference by preventing similar tragedies from being repeated. Our lawyers have a record of success taking on the most well-funded defendants.” The firm’s partners and members are regularly recognized by the legal community and the media; in 2014 and again for 2020, Regan was named Best Lawyers “Lawyer of the Year” for Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs in Washington, D.C. The publication also named Senior Partner, VP, and Founding Member Salvatore J. Zambri the 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” for Product Liability Litigation – Plaintiffs in Washington, D.C. Five of the firm’s lawyers—including all of its name partners—are recognized in the 2021 Edition of Washington D.C.’s Best Lawyers for representing plaintiffs in several practice areas, including Medical Malpractice, Product Liability, Personal Injury and Mass Torts/Class Actions. In 2019, Regan negotiated a confidential settlement with Washington Gas on behalf of the victims of a massive 2016 gas explosion at an apartment complex in Silver Spring. That avoidable tragedy claimed the lives of seven people, injured scores more, and left the majority of Flower Branch Apartments tenants homeless. In 2018, Regan successfully represented the family of a woman who tragically died as a result of smoke inhalation in the Metro Yellow Line fire in January 2015. In another case, Regan obtained a $15 million recovery representing the family of a 35-year-old man who was crushed to death by a dump truck operating with a defective back-up alarm. He also secured $17 million in a confidential settlement in a defective product and injury case—one of the largest cash settlements in the District of Columbia. “We always aim to secure compensation that will keep our clients financially secure and help them heal—physically and emotionally,” Regan said. “But our results also send a message to other individuals and organizations: negligence and bad faith have consequences.” left to right: EMILY LAGAN, SALVATORE J.

The firm also helps clients and their families recover from car accidents, traumatic brain injury, birth injury and nursing home abuse, among other catastrophic events and related areas.

Their dedication to client advocacy is unwavering. Even amid worldwide disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Regan Zambri Long has kept clients’ needs as its top priority. “We continue to aggressively prosecute cases,” Regan said. “We had already invested in remote capabilities, which made our transition seamless and positioned us to continue delivering unmatched client service.”

TIME TO VOTE? With the presidential election right around the corner, the right to vote is more important than ever. For some, there are obstacles to exercising their constitutional right. By Janice Zhou

What measures are used to restrict voting? Voter ID requirements, purging voter registration rolls based on overbroad criteria, reducing the number of polling places, limiting early voting, and prohibiting felons from voting even after being released. What do you think of voter ID laws? It’s enacted to make it difficult for low-income, disabled, and elderly citizens to vote, with [a special eye] towards deterring minority voters. The claim that they are necessary to deter voter fraud is entirely a pretext because there is no evidence of any significant problem with in-person voting fraud. How can voting rights change for the better for long term? Restrictive voting laws serves the same purpose as poll taxes and literacy tests did in the Jim Crow era. Two recent Supreme Court decisions had the effect of greenlighting the modern wave of voting rights suppression—a 2008 ruling upholding a highly restrictive Indiana voter ID law and a 2013 decision striking down a key part of the Voting Rights Act. I hope they may one day be revisited.

Jonathan C. Puth Correia & Puth

RECOGNIZED FOR FOR CIVIL RIGHTS LAW SINCE 2016

A

S THE NOVEMBER PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION APPROACHES, access to voting has been a hot topic. A Time magazine article addressed the issue of how states are battling over who gets to vote in the 2020 election. According to the article, 29 states have introduced at least 188 bills so far this year that intend to expand voting rights by making registration and absentee voting easier as well as restoring the vote to former felons. On the other hand, in 15 mostly Republican states, legislators have introduced at least 35 bills that make voting more difficult by imposing stricter voter-identification requirements, according to an analysis by the Brennan Center of Justice, a non-partisan law and public policy institute. One way that inhibits the access to voting is voter-suppression laws that are intended to prevent voter fraud and protect election integrity. These laws take many forms, including cutting back on early voting, voter ID laws, and difficulties for people to vote when they “One way that inhibits the go to the wrong precinct, access to voting is voteraccording to the American suppression laws that are intended to prevent voter Civil Liber ties Union. fraud and protect election We t a l ke d t o t h r e e integrity.” recognized Best Lawyers to ask them about their take on the current state of voting.

What is your opinion on the current state of access to voting? Access to voting currently is woefully substandard, where poor people and minorities face hurdles to registration, and closed polling places mean that working people must endure long lines and other disincentives to vote. What do you think of the current state of voter suppression? Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy; every effort should be made to ensure that all citizens be able to vote. We should dismantle obstacles to voting and invest in our elections to ensure the vitality of our democratic system. How will access to voting impact the upcoming presidential election in November? One would hope that the current efforts to depress voter participation will backfire and motivate people to vote. With the challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic, elected leaders should invest heavily and immediately to ensure that every citizen who wishes to vote can do so.

Matthew G. Kaiser KaiserDillon

RECOGNIZED FOR CIVIL RIGHTS LAW SINCE 2018

How do state elections systems make voting harder? They have been the target of systemic efforts to make voting harder and are chronically underfunded. When coupled with the dramatic change necessary to effectively vote during the current pandemic, it is a recipe for disenfranchisement. What can be done to help with access in voting, especially during a pandemic? Same-day voter registration would be a tremendous start. Or, in the pandemic, simply mailing a mail-in ballot to every registered voter in each jurisdiction would be a tremendous start.

he fight for equality has been a long one and continues today. John Relman, Washington D.C.’s 2021 “Lawyer of the Year” for Civil Rights Law, is passionate about the issues of racial justice and institutional racism. “Racial and economic justice go together in this country,” Relman said. “They have always been connected. You can’t really understand how to address one without addressing the other.” Relman, the founder and managing partner of Relman Colfax, has done extensive work in fair housing and fair lending cases that has widened the scope and reach of the Fair Housing Act. “Where we live matters,” he explained. “It determines outcomes and opportunities. Discrimination in many of our cases is made possible because there is a defined minority community to target or exclude. If we could figure out how to maintain stable, integrated communities, it would go a long way toward reducing both economic and racial inequalities.” And with the problem of fair housing, many consequences that follow can be attributed to the racial inequality that has plagued the country.

“Where one lives affects where you go to school, opportunities for jobs and connections, the right to vote, health outcomes, and so much more,” he said. “We need to protect that law. It is under attack as we speak.” There are many rewarding aspects in practicing this type of law, but for Relman, it’s the idea of changing for the better. “We like to think that we have the opportunity to change the law,” he said. “We have the opportunity to open people’s eyes and change the way people think. When you empower people and you allow them to affirm their own dignity, their own selfworth, their right to live in our society with the same rights and privileges as everybody else, it’s tremendously satisfying.” With this line of work, there’s never a finish line. There is always something to work on. “It’s not a problem that just gets fixed,” Relman said. “It’s an ongoing struggle. I think there’s the opportunity to have a more fair and just society, but the need for civil rights lawyers is never going to disappear. The work will never be done.” W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

EMILY LAGAN, SALVATORE J. ZAMBRI, PAUL J. CORNONI, JUANITA S. LAWSON, PATRICK M. REGAN, LAURIE AMELL (OF COUNSEL), CHRISTOPHER J. REGAN, VICTOR E. LONG, AMY S. GRIGGS, JACQUELINE T. COLCLOUGH

ACHIEVING JUSTICE FOR ESSENTI A L WORK ERS Patrick Regan of Regan Zambri Long describes how the recent resolution of a corporate negligence case brought closure to survivors of a fatal 2016 apartment building explosion.

F

lowe r B r a n c h A p a r t me nt s , a garden-style apartment complex in Silver Spring, was home to hundreds of hardworking men, women, and families. Late on Aug. 10, 2016, after most residents had gone to bed, the still night air was shattered by a gas explosion. The blast and ensuing fire killed seven, injured more than 100, and left the survivors homeless and without any of their worldly possessions. Fol low i n g t he c at a s t rophe, m a ny residents turned to Catholic Charities for shelter and moral support. Wanting to ensure that the victims received the best legal representation, the organization reached out to Regan Zambri Long, whose firm president and senior partner, Patrick M. Regan, had previously donated years of volunteer work for Catholic Charities. “Upon interviewing the victims, we instantly knew it would be a privilege to represent them,” says Regan. “These survivors had lost relatives and all their property in an avoidable tragedy. We were

inspired to fight for them, to uncover the truth, and right the wrongs.”

“We were inspired to fight for them, to uncover the truth, and right the wrongs.” Regan assembled a legal team comprised of Senior Partner Victor Long and firm attorneys Christopher J. Regan and Emily Lagan. The firm was joined by others in the litigation against the landlord, gas company, and other corporate defendants. They felt confident in their argument, supported by the National Transportation Safety Board’s April 2019 conclusion, that the explosion had been caused by “an unconnected vent line that allowed natural gas into the meter room where it […] ignited.”

The trial for an initial “bellwether case” was scheduled for December 2019 in Montgomery County Circuit Court. In the months leading up to trial, Regan Zambri Long had all hands on deck building the case. On the eve of trial, however, a confidential settlement was reached with the defendants. Ultimately, Regan said he believes the outcome was favorable for his clients, who needed not only justice, but also closure. “This marked the end of a three-year nightmare for an incredibly resilient group of people who perform essential jobs in our community,” says Regan, who in 2020 was named Best Lawyers “Lawyer of the Year” for Medical Malpractice Law - Plaintiffs in Washington D.C. for the second time. “Knowing that our efforts helped put this tragedy behind them is extremely gratifying. This result was a highlight in our firm’s history, and we were honored to achieve justice for these hardworking people.” W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

T

he attorneys at Kelly Byrnes & Danker recognize and understand the complexities of domestic relations law, as well as the emotional upheaval and disruption confronting a client who is faced with a pending marital dissolution and the myriad of unforeseen legal issues. With more than six decades of collective experience, partners John E. Byrnes, Sean P. Kelly, and Maureen E. Danker have each developed their own approach and style, but they are always focused on a common goal: keeping clients focused on the end result of the legal process instead of the issues that actually brought them to the firm.

As Byrnes says, the firm offers a variety of ways for clients to resolve their family law disputes, including settlement negotiations, mediation, and contested litigation. “We also now offer collaborative law, which helps create and foster an atmosphere of communication and cooperation, as well as a way for clients to settle their divorce without the threat of litigation,” Byrnes notes. It’s just another way the firm helps clients find an approach that is specifically tailored to best fit their needs. It’s no surprise, then, that the firm is consistently ranked as a Tier 1 family law practice in Washington, D.C., by U.S. News - Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms”—and that its partners are repeatedly selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers and other peer-reviewed lists. “Regardless of how we work to resolve our clients’ matters, we want them to understand that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel,” says Byrnes.

history, Kuder, Smollar, Friedman & Mihalik has built a preeminent family law practice that has a reputation throughout DC, Maryland and Virginia for its extensive knowledge and compassionate service to clients experiencing challenging life events. The year 2020 has proven to be extraordinarily challenging for families, and especially for families going through separation, divorce, or custody disputes.

In light of the changes in the world, KSFM remains ready and available to assist in all matters, using alternative strategies – such as negotiation, mediation, and collaborative law – as well as litigation to resolve disputes. The firm has employed technology designed to seamlessly handle family law matters from afar, and has implemented regimented safety protocols for our personnel and guests visiting our office. Our firm continues to be committed to facilitating the best resolution possible for our clients and their families. We would like to announce that Makia Weaver, Esq. has joined our team as an associate. Prior to joining KSFM, Makia served as a public defender in Maryland for three years, where she honed valuable skills in client-centered advocacy, case negotiations, and conflict resolution. We extend our best wishes to everyone as we navigate this new landscape and we hope that you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy.

Strategic Solutions FOR COMPLEX FAMILY LAW NEEDS Scott M. Stickler

The best way to settle any case, inside or outside the courtroom, is to be better prepared than the other side. We believe in strategic rather than reactive thinking. We recognize that every case is unique and that our approach must be distinct and tactical. People turn to us when they are facing challenging situations involving their marriage, custody of their children, or other legal concerns involving their family. These issues are often complicated and the stakes are high. Clients benefit from our inventive solutions. Opponents are unable to predict our approach. We help clients obtain winning outcomes.

Our methodology for determining these awards remains the same as it did when Best Lawyers was founded almost 40 years ago: peer-review. Lawyers are the best resource to provide feedback on the caliber of work performed by their peers. “Ones to Watch” is not a seed list to Best Lawyers and all hopeful candidates must be nominated and vetted by their peers recognized in Best Lawyers. Visit bestlawyers.com/ones-to-watch for more details.
