Excellent Attorney
Mr. Oconner helped me obtain a civil judgement against a store that fraudulently got me to purchase their product that I would not have purchased if I would have known all the ingredients of the product. During the whole time while he was doing all the legal work to obtain this judgment he was very helpful to me by always explaining everything that was happening. He would always answer any and all of my questions either by phone or email right away. Often times doing so after business hours as my job had me working until after 5:00 pm. Mr. Oconner was always very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend him to anybody that may need legal consultation. If a situation ever arises, I won’t hesitate to call him!!!

Patrick was the first lawyer I have had to hire. My case took much longer than we originally expected. He was consistent in the level of detail, enthusiasm and confidence he showed throughout the entire process, which in turn gave me confidence. I was very impressed with his written skills as well and was always comfortable with the way he negotiated for me. As stressful as my case could be at times, the confidence I had in Patrick allowed me to focus on my job and life knowing that he had everything under control. I would recommend Patrick to anybody seeking legal representation regarding an employment dispute.

Dedicated Lawyer
Pat was committed to my case and treated it as important, even though it was a smaller one. He was professional and highly intelligent, which shined through in his knowledge of consumer protection law. Whenever I had questions along the way he was extremely helpful and a terrific communicator. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for legal representation that is affordable and needs someone honest and hard working and very patient.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Patrick did some legal research for me on a consumer matter and provided a thorough and well sourced brief for my consideration. He has also been my go to for bouncing any small claims/litigation issues off of, and has provided me good advice and support whenever I needed it. He is a nice guy as well, and you would be in good hands hiring him to be your attorney."
