eonard Dooren began his career in 1992 as an attorney after graduating with honors from the Washington College of Law in the District of Columbia. For the past fifteen years, Mr. Dooren has dedicated his career to meeting the needs of his clients. He has worked in the areas of medical malpractice/negligence, product liability and personal injury law. Before teaming with Patrick Malone, Mr. Dooren served for more than twelve years as defense counsel for the largest hospitals in D.C. and did work for the largest private insurer of doctors in D.C. defending medical malpractice cases in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia. During those years Mr. Dooren learned first hand what the doctors and hospitals did right and unfortunately what they did wrong. This experience is the single greatest asset that Mr. Dooren brings to his clients. Not every dreadful outcome is the result of bad care, but when bad care results in an injury, the tragic nature of avoidable injuries is heart wrenching. Mr. Dooren’s more than decade of experience helps tell the difference. The daily grind as a defense attorney taught Mr. Dooren not only the lessons of the law, but more important, provided him with a unique opportunity to see the lawyers on both side in action. The ability to learn not only about what the doctors did right and wrong, but also what the lawyers did right and wrong is an invaluable resource for our clients and our team. Mr. Dooren worked his way through law school in a small law office in the District of Columbia, Jay Weiss, P.C., specializing in personal injury. Mr. Dooren cut his teeth as a law student with hands on experience in hundreds of small personal injury cases. He has never forgotten or wavered from his role as the advocate for each and every one of his clients.
