I hired Mr. O'Connell in June of 2012 after I was badly injured in a pedestrian/auto accident. Being my first time filing any sort of legal case and my first time hiring any sort of lawyer, my family discovered and recommended the law firm William Muhr out of referral from friends at our church. From there, I talked with John and his partners collaboratively over the next year to get my case filed and ultimately resolved.
Throughout the entire case process all the way to the closing of the case, Mr. O'Connell has gone above and beyond in answering any questions I had, double-checking that I understood every step of the process to make sure I was not being taken advantage of. Even though I talked to local partners for the majority of the time, he still looked out for my success in the case, helping out at the most critical steps and making sure all my information was correct. When the time came for the deposition, I was very nervous, but he did an excellent job helping me relax and achieve a successful deposition. We also had a very successful mediation and I was grateful that we did not end up having to take the case to court. I was extremely pleased with the results of the case as I had never expected such a successful and straightforward case settlement.
Mr. O'Connell provided exceptional legal representation and his vast experience in the field undoubtedly shines when he represents someone. He handled my case with much professionalism and he is a man who has earned my trust. If I am ever in need of such legal service again, I will most likely be in contact with him once more.
If you're looking for professionalism and diligence with a side of friendliness, look no further.

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.
