About me



My name is Shawn Patrick O'Connor, and I have been proudly practicing law here in southeastern Michigan for about 7 years.  Currently, I am a partner in a small law firm in Garden City, Michigan-Debolski, Debolski, & O'Connor.  I come from a blue-collar background, which aids me in understanding the problems my clients face on a day-to-day basis.  


I take pride in my profession, and consistently strive to provide each and every client with the best legal representation possible.  


If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me either at my office or on my cell.  


Hope you have a great day!

    I endorse Shawn O'Connor. I have known Shawn for two years and have been opposing counsel against Shawn on several cases. Shawn has always been an aggressive advocate for his clients as well as maintained a professional attitude. His passion and vast knowledge of the law is apparent from the first conversation that you have with Shawn. His dedication and commitment to his clients interests are rivaled by none. I hold Shawn in high esteem.
