I handle a wide array of litigation matters in both federal and state courts focusing primarily on plaintiff-side employment litigation, whether based on harassment, discrimination, retaliation, or wage and hour. I understand that most of my clients come to me at a hard time in their lives when paying for an attorney is not possible. I take great pride in being able to serve these clients on a contingency basis, meaning that they are not charged an upfront hourly rate, and more often than not, I’m able to advance all litigation costs. In my view, this places my clients on equal footing with their much larger employers who are able to spend thousands – if not hundreds of thousands – of dollars on their big firm legal defenses.


In addition to employment litigation, I also have significant experience in many types of business disputes and consumer protection cases, including what is commonly referred to as “lemon law.”


My insights into the legal system, together with the skills and knowledge I possess, come from my previous experience at large national law firms, where I represented numerous Fortune500 companies, but ultimately became disillusioned with the idea of always defending the “Big Guys.” Since founding my own small firm in 2016, I have enjoyed working closely with clients to narrowly tailor my efforts to best match their goals. As my firm grows, so too does my commitment to each client and I will continue to measure the success of my firm based solely on the success and vindication of my clients’ claims and rights.

An Excellent Attorney In Your Corner!
I came to Connor by referral. I was recently let go from a role that did not end well. I was harassed, bullied, and ultimately driven out of the organization by an extremely toxic culture. After having a severance shoved in my face, I was very suspicious of the circumstances surrounding my termination. I spoke with Connor and provided ALL THE FACTS and he found several issues I wasn't aware of in addition to the grievances I had. He was able to work with my employer and we settled on a sizable increase in severance in lieu of legal proceedings, something I never could have done on my own. He was very supportive and guided me through each step. He is also extremely professional. If I ever have any issues again I will be working with him, and will send any of my colleagues his way.

Employer Problems
I was referred to Connor by a friend because I needed legal help concerning some employment issues that included FMLA and PDA laws. I was able to consult with Connor and get a good idea of what I was looking at a far as a legal case from day one. I decided to hire Connor because he was very honest and let me know that my concerns were valid but to also be aware that it may not go exactly as I was expecting. Connor was very thorough and actually found other laws that my employer had violated! It was very surprising. Another important thing is that Connor was very timely and quick getting back to me whenever I had questions. He was able to settle my case and I am extremely grateful for the outcome he achieved.

highly recommended
When I thought I had a legal claim I reached out to Connor for help. Connor immediately investigated it and found out that my claim was much bigger than I thought. Connor quickly sent a demand and in less than a couple months the matter was resolved. I was surprised how quick and painless the whole ordeal was. I know he did a great job and I cannot recommend his services enough! 6 out of 5 stars!

Lemon Law
I had bought a 2013 [redacted] and over the past few years I have had several serious issues with it...The engine shut off while driving! Despite having it “fixed” at [redacted] multiple times they finally advised me they were unable to “duplicate” the problem and to let them know if the problem occurred again. I needed an attorney to represent me and I decided to hire Conner Olsen after speaking to him. He was very knowledgeable regarding the laws and he discussed everything with me in a manner in which I could understand, in layman terms. He had past experience dealing with the Lemon Law and he was able to provide me with a play by play of what would occur and what all my options were. Mr. Olsen also kept me abreast of the lawsuit and let me decide how involvement I wanted to partake in prior to the settlement. Due to the well written out lawsuit, [redacted] repurchased my vehicle within weeks, rather then the typical months, and we did not have to go to jury trail. Hopefully I never have this issue again with my new vehicle; however, if I did I would definitely hire Mr. Olsen again!
