    I have known John O'Connell since our first day of law school - more years ago than I choose to publish here. What I will state without any reservation is that John is one of the finest legal professionals I have had the privilege of observing. He is one of the most intelligent and intuitive lawyers I have ever met. He's entitled to several bonus points because he possesses absolutely no arrogance - in or out of the courtroom. My observation of John is that he possesses a talent that enables him to fully immerse himself in his work. He is a natural when it comes to the advocacy of others. Part of this talent appears to come from his genuine respect and concern for his clients. Another part comes from a place within him that I have observed since we first met - John simply cannot stand to lose. Beyond the fact that John has been a friend for many years, I admire John's capabilities because he has earned every victory. John's record of success speaks for itself.
