My son was facing many years in prison. We hire a attorney who did nothing for my son, One day I ask god to send me someone with a good heart. And then I turn on the television and their she was Deirdre, walking a man out of prison. I knew when I saw her she could and would help my son. Even through my son was not so innocent, we hire her and she got right down to the truth and my son came home 3 years later. He was facing ten years or more, I'm so greatful and thankful for Deirdre she is awesome and very smart! My son has a wonderful life now that he's a free man. However I need a family attorney now, Deirdre do you have any good hearted family attorney that I can call?

Back in 2002 I was wrongfully convicted of terrorist threats. The woman that did this to me harassed me for about 18 years of my life and on top of that I had a bad record which kept me from progressing in life until I met Deirdre O’Connor.. She did for me something I thought would never happen. She fought for me in court and had my record exonerated. She listened to me and she believed in me. She went out of her way for me in many ways. I could talk to her about anything and she listened. To me she is an angel that worked a mircle for me. I’m so grateful for you Deirdre O’Connor.

Good stuff! Wise counsel should confirm with their governing bar that there is no ethics violation in their jurisdiction.

I was facing years in prison for a crime I did not commit. The judge and the DA were pressuring me to take a deal. Even my attorney kept referring to it as "a good deal." I knew I was innocent but I was also scared things would get worse if I fought it. I didn't have faith in my current attorney so I searched online and found Deirdre! Not only is she smart, extremely thorough and dedicated; she's fearless. She doesn't back down to bullying DAs or judges. She put the time in and spoke to everyone involved; she knew the facts better than me. Deirdre gave me the confidence to fight my case. When I got nervous, she reminded me the facts were on our side and that I was innocent. She resisted all pressure to cave and eventually got my case dismissed. She saved me and my family decades of grief!

“She is absolutely amazing! When I found Deirdre I had already fired one lawyer and interviewed countless others. She was the only one who cared that I was innocent. Even more than that it was important to her to hold others accountable for their actions including police officers so that the truth could come out. This was only possibly through her hard work and persistence. She took the time and effort to obtain every bit of information pertinent to my case, investigate thoroughly all parties involved and most of all fought for me every step of the way. She always made herself available to me and took the time to truly make every effort on my behalf.
When I was first arrested all i was hoping for was to not go to jail. I did not think it was possible to ever prove that the officers involved in my arrest were lying. My word against theirs. But somehow, amazingly, Deirdre did just that!
If you truly are innocent, Deirdre is the one who will go above and beyond. She will stand with you through the entire process. I would recommend her to anyone who needs the truth to come out. She truly helped me put my life back together!

My mother was convicted of murder and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole when I was nine years old. This was devastating for my mother and our entire family. The most devastating part about it was that she was entirely innocent. Deirdre O'Connor came into our lives unexpectedly one day and agreed to represent my mother. Deirdre believed in my mother's innocence and from then on we knew we were in good hands. I have never met an individual who works harder and more efficient than Deirdre O'Connor. The passion she had and still has for my mother's case is extraordinary! After spending 17 years behind bars for a murder my mother did not commit, Deirdre was able to prove my mother's innocence. On October 14, 2014, Susan Mellen (my mom) was exonerated and factually proven innocent because of Deirdre's passion, motivation, determination and sleepless nights. This active process of representing my mother and getting her exonerated all happened in less than 1 year! We are so thankful and appreciative of Ms. O'Connor and it would be impossible for us to thoroughly express our gratitude. She is the reason our family is together again! We will never be able to get back the years we spent apart, but now we are able to cherish the future together!

I was in prison for 17 years serving Life Without the Possibility of Parole for a murder I did not commit! I always had hope that God would put someone in my path one day to bring the truth to light and to get justice. Deirdre showed up and in less than 10 months I was free! She believed in me and fought passionately. She was dedicated and worked diligently to discover evidence confirming my innocence. Deirdre went out her way to comfort me when I was overwhelmed during the last three months waiting for news. She's the kind of lawyer who never gives up and that's why I call her my Pitbull Angel and my best friend.

After 17 years of being away from her family and behind bars, Deirdre O'Connor was the first person to have much faith in freeing my mom. She worked hard and diligently, and in less than a year she was able to bring my mom home to us. I can not express enough gratitude and love towards Deirdre! She is currently working on our civil suit and we are confident that she will fight for us to the end. She puts her heart and soul into her cases! She is by far the best thing that has every happen to our family!

She was exceptional in answering my questions I would recommend her highly to anyone that wants a really good lawyer that fights for the incarcerated innocent, innocence matters

Deirdre O'Connor represented me in my habeas petition & I could'nt have made a better choice. She cares about the truth & she seeks it. She always made herself available to me & kept me informed about anything that was happening or even not happening. Shes honest,hardworking & she knows her Law. I was innocent of the charges I was being held on & with her hard work & diligence,after 19 long years,she righted that wrong & got my conviction vacated. Shes the best lawyer I've ever experienced & even a better person. Highly,highly recommended!!
