Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Mike O'Hara is an awesome lawyer and a great guy. He gives each case he works on full effort, and pays attention to detail. I worked for him for a long time and was always impressed at his dedication to clients. I still work with him on several cases, probably about 6 or 7 right now. He knows employment and labor law, civil rights, and business litigation like no one else. I refer clients to him, and believe him to be one of the best lawyers I know. And I'm not just saying that because he is a friend, and he is a very good friend."
