Chris went above and beyond for my family and I during a very difficult time! I truly trust in this wonderful man and his amazing firm. His staff was top notch! Chris was available whenever we needed him. His staff is always helpful and their firm makes you feel like you are part of the family. I highly recommend Chris to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer!!

Chris O'Brien recently helped settle my case from a car accident that occurred 4.5 years ago! Not only did he somehow win the maximum amount offered in the case, but he never gave up on helping me despite how frustratingly long this process took. He consulted with me first with every move we made, and truly cared about the healthcare I was receiving throughout this entire time. I was incredibly nervous about being in front of a jury, but Chris and Sidney's approach for easing my nerves came across very clear with their confidence, expertise, and humor when I needed it most. I realized that I was not nervous of the final outcome of the case because I was extremely confident in his skills and approach to win this case. Chris would dispute specific issues that proved that he genuinely cared about me as a person and not simply a client. That fact alone came to be one of the countless reasons that I am thankful to have worked with him. I consider Chris and Sidney to be great friends now because they proved to be very protective of me. His (and Sidney’s) personal investment in seeking compensation and responsibility for my injuries for over four years is incomparable to what any other law office could have ever provided. Again, Chris and Sidney are so talented that they were responsible for winning the full amount possible in my case. For that reason and many more, I will recommend them to many for years to come!

I was hurt in a car crash. Chris met with me two days later and handled my case with his staff all the way to jury selection. He told me we had to go that far to make sure GEICO paid what they owed. The insurance company finally gave me the money I deserved after stalling and playing games. Chris and his paralegal Mary helped me through the hardest time in my life. I cannot thank them enough.

Chris not only cared about my case, but also my well being throughout the process. He was always there to walk me through the steps we were taking and answer any questions I had. He has become a close friend, and is the only lawyer I would trust for any of my family members.

I've known Chris as a colleague for years. I've always known him to be a hard-working, exceptional attorney. When my husband was in a car accident, there was no one that I trusted more than Chris to help us. He got results that exceeded our expectations. Chris and his office were the best. They always answered our calls, were courteous and compassionate. I highly recommend Chris.

After months of them doing hard work and answering our questions and being available, Chris got the result that we deserved. We first went to Chris after another lawyer told us we had no case. Chris told us that our case would be difficult but that he believed it was worth pursuing. I always felt like my questions were answered and nothing was shady like those car chasers you see on TV. The staff, Mary, Judy and Patrice were all awesome. I always felt like I was dealing with a reputable place. At the end, they all feel like family. The new lawyer at Chris' place, John Ford, also really cares about what he does and is a passionate fighter.

I was injured in a car accident in 2013. I found Chris by going online. It was the best 2 hours I ever spent on a computer. From my first meeting with Chris until he handed me my lawsuit award he was always honest, kind, straightforward, poised, prompt, and professional. He was also unrelenting in dealing with insurance companies and their lawyers. He's a pitbull. He will not give up, he will fight for you harder than you will fight for yourself. Chris will always tell you the truth, even if it is something you do not want to hear. Honesty and straight talk, three words I thought I would never use to describe a lawyer. If you get hurt in an accident and you don't hire Chris O'Brien to represent you be prepared for a long, angry ride with an attorney of lesser ability and passion.

Following a car accident in which I was deemed guilty of reckless driving I met with Mr O'Brien who from the moment I walked into the office took my case on spec and made me feel that he believed in me. I have the utmost respect and admiration for Chris and his assistant Patrice and the rest of the staff who gave of themselves whole heartedly. And we won.

Chris is a great lawyer! Also a very patient one. I had 2 personal injury cases where the accidents both occurred within 1 year of each other which dragged the process way out. Through all that he never sugar coated anything. He gave it to me straight and told me exactly what to expect. He made sure to answer all of my questions. I highly recommend him. The end result was even better than I expected or planned. Thanks again Chris.

In August of 2011, I was in a head on collision with a drunken driver. At which time, I received multiple injuries to my body. As the TV bombards you with advertisements for personal injury lawyers, I did not know what avenue to take. I consulted my personal lawyer and he suggested I contact a Chris O'Brien, who he felt was one of the top personal injury lawyers in Buffalo. Since my association with my lawyer has been over thirty years I trusted him that he was sending me to a competent person. Mr. O'Brien became not only my personal injury lawyer, he became a FRIEND. His interest and compassion and concern went above and beyond what I expected. He fought diligently to get the maximum restitution I was entitled to. He was open at any time of the day or night to receive my call and get back to me one way or the other.
I've recommended Mr. O'Brien to other people who have been involved in accidents and they were very well pleased. I would advocate him to anyone and everyone in need of a personal injury lawyer because he will treat and respect you as family not just a client.
