Review Matthew McConnell

About Me

Drawing on a broad range of experience in multiple practice areas, our practice focuses on:

1 - civil litigation involving serious personal-injury, wrongful death, business, contracts, product-defects, redhibition, admiralty/maritime (Jones Act/seaman), health care,  oilfield and energy-related casualties, ERISA and other insurance claims, worker-injuries, employment, commercial trucking and private auto accidents;

2 - business counsel (formation, operating agreements, negotiations); and

3 - general legal assistance (wills, successions, as well as select criminal-defense matters).
