Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Edward Jacob Sternisha

    I gladly endorse Attorney O'Hara. Mr. O'Hara not only has the knowledge and experience needed to successfully serve his clients, he has the temperament that is so much needed in this line of work. Any lawyer can argue for their clients, but being able to do so without taking it personally and allowing the other side to bring out the worst in you takes talent. Mr. O’Hara has the right amount of knowledge and experience combined with the ability to professionally persuade others to consider other options that makes him a true asset to those he serves. It is a privilege to endorse Attorney O’Hara and call him a colleague.
