Daniel S Kozma

Law Office of Daniel S. Kozma

Daniel S Kozma earned his law degree at the Cornell Law School and have over thirty years’ experience representing individuals and employees in federal and local trial courts, and appellate courts throughout the country. He has extensive jury trial experience.

In addition to the District of Columbia, I have tried cases to juries in San Diego and Oakland, California; Seattle, Washington; Nashville, Tennessee; Prince Georges County, Maryland; and in Alexandria and Richmond, Virginia.

I served for eight years on the Board of Governors of the Trial Lawyers Association of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., and I am still a member of TLA and of the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association.

I started as a litigation and trial attorney with the Air Line Pilots Association, the largest pilots’ union, for nine years.  After that I joined Connerton, Ray $ Simon, a small, union-side labor law firm in Washington, D.C. and was there for another nine years, becoming a partner.  I left to join the law firm of Koonz, McKenney, Johnson, DePaolis & Lightfoot, one of the top personal injury firms in the area, and spent five years with that firm.  In 2004 I opened my own office.

I have considerable experience in employment law, including wrongful discharge, sex, race, and other forms of discrimination and unlawful harassment and hostile work environment, labor law and arbitrations, employee benefits, whistleblower cases, individual employment contracts, non-compete agreements, severance benefits as well as denial of tenure and revocation of tenure issues for faculty in universities and colleges.

As just two examples, on October 1, 2009, a District of Columbia jury awarded my client, Professor Sybil Roberts-Williams $582,400 in a breach of contract and pregnancy discrimination case after a thirteen day trial.  Roberts-Williams v. Howard University, Civil No. 2006 CA 009196 B (D.C. Superior Court).

In March 1999, after an eleven day trial, a Federal court jury in Oakland California awarded a young airline pilot I represented, Kathleen Betts, over $1.5 million in a sex discrimination and defamation case against United Airlines. Betts v. United Airlines, Inc., Dkt. 97-4329.

Over the last fifteen years I have also developed expertise in toxic tort and other complex personal injury cases, especially childhood and workplace lead poisoning cases.

I have recovered well over $15 million on behalf of lead poisoned children in over two dozen cases, including a jury verdict for over $1.6 million in April, 2000, after an eight day jury trial in the District of Columbia Superior Court. Gomez v. Atlantic Realty, Civ. 97-1151 (D.C. Sup. Ct.).  That is still the largest verdict or recovery for a lead poisoned child in the District of Columbia.

In 2003, I settled before trial a premises liability case for almost $2 million, and I also represented a group of people forced from their homes by a gasoline spill from a gas station that resulted in a multimillion dollar settlement before trial in 2002.
