About Brian

Learn Brian’s areas of practice.

I began my legal career as a Riverside County Deputy D.A. before moving to Santa Barbara in 1987. Between the years of 1987 to 1997, my practice involved primarily defending personal injury, professional negligence, and product liability matters.

Since 1997, I have exclusively represented individuals seriously injured through medical or legal malpractice, auto, motorcycle and bicycle accidents, product defect, insurance bad faith, dog bites, head and spine injuries, elder abuse, and the wrongful death of a family member.

I have successfully obtained jury verdicts in over 35 trials and recovered over 10 million dollars on behalf of injured clients. I have a proven track record and the level of experience required to win your case.

A friend referred Brian to me and I used his services on a case. He is a dedicated attorney who will fight for you. I will recommend him to any family or friend needing an attorney.

Exceptional, professional and considerate experience
I could not be more pleased having Mr. O’Connor represent me during what was a difficult time for me. His expertise coupled with his sincere compassion and accessibility made my experience as smooth as it could possibly be.

Opinion changes based on the day of the week
I consulted with Brian two times via telephone. It's my opinion that when you talk to a lawyer, they are responsible for any advice they give you - whether or not you pay them. The attorney-client privilege extends to that first conversation. The times I consulted with him, he gave conflicting advice based on the same situation. the first time I talked to him, he was nice about things and said he would be interested in the case, but the second time I consulted with him about it, he was not interested, didn't remember the things we had talked about, didn't listen to the facts very well, and gave completely different advice. So, I could not hire him because I do not trust his opinion. And I can't recommend him for the same reason. He was also rather rude.
