Washington State Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Gets A $500 Donation for Every Drunk Driving Injury Case Handled By Davis Law Group


Seattle, WASeattle drunk driving victim lawyer Chris Davis is announcing that his firm, Davis Law Group, P.S., will donate $500 to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) Pacific Northwest Region for every drunk driving collision case that his law firm settles or takes to verdict. 

“Although both nationally and in Washington state drunk driving incidents and fatalities are down overall, driving while intoxicated is still a huge problem,” said Davis.  “The drunken driving injury and wrongful death cases that our firm handles are heart-wrenching and our staff takes a particular interest in helping these clients get justice.”

In 2008, 255 people in Washington State lost their lives in fatal alcohol related motor vehicle collisions.  One hundred eighty-two (182) of those accidents involved a drunk driver whose blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was 0.08 or higher.

The firm’s employees are so angered by the circumstances of the drunk driving-related injury cases that they are handling that they began to look for ways to help raise awareness about drunk driving in Washington State.  When Davis’ wife Mischelle Weedman-Davis learned that donations to organizations such as MADD are down dramatically as a result of the current economic downturn and recession, she proposed to her husband and the office staff that they begin their own MADD fundraising campaign. 

“As a mother and someone who is close to some of the personal stories of those who have been touched by a drunk driving tragedy, helping MADD raise much needed money to fund drunk driving awareness and education programs is very satisfying, “said Mischelle Weedman-Davis. 

The firm currently handles a number of Western Washington drunk driving cases in the Seattle area.  At the conclusion of each these and all future DUI / DWI cases Davis will donate $500 to Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
