Highly Recommend!!
I was represented by Andrew O'Connell with O'Connell Law Firm for a workman's comp case. I am more than pleased with the legal assistance, advice and representation that I received. Andrew is such a nice, pleasant, caring, and honest person... and his knowledge, and professionalism is above top tier. Andrew kept me informed on everything during the process from the beginning to the end. We were able to reach a settlement agreement with my now previous employer. It was such a pleasure working with Andrew, and it was an even more pleasure when I met him and his brother in person at their law office. I wish I could give them a million stars because I would. If I ever need this firm in the future, I would definitely have them represent me again. I would 'highly' recommend O'Connell Law Firm if you need legal representation for a workman's comp case, and all other services that they specialize in! Thank you so very much Andrew. You're amazing.

Great Attorney
I hired Andrew last year for my W/C case and I felt relieved after our first conversation .He took his time explaining all the different things that could happen with my case and made a plan of action. For over 6 months whenever I had a question day or night he responded to me via phone or text which reassured me I had a attorney that actually cared for me and my case. I am walking away from my case satisfied and I am thankful for Andrew!

After hiring Andrew he kept me updated on the status of the case and handled the many issues and problems which were many and frustrating in a very professional and timely manner. After going round and round with the insurance company he was able to conclude the case with a very satisfactory result. I will definitely recommend Andrew to anyone that is hurt on the job.

Team Andrew
Andrew is just a really nice guy he doesn't get much from what he does and trust me my case was worth practically nothing but he kept in contact with me as if I was his sister. He wanted to make sure I wasn't done wrong. I would recommend him to anybody. He is so awesome please give him a chance. I've had my doubts with lawyers and situations and this one is really cares! I am team Andrew as corny as that may sound you'll understand once you get to meet the sweethearted guy that he is!
