I had the opportunity to first meet Ms. O’Connor to assist with employment disciplinary issues. Ms. O’Connor is very knowledgeable in the Officer Bill of Rights, which ensures that a law enforcement agency internal affairs agency remains in check and does not crucify a law enforcement officer without due process. Although I was disciplined, my ultimate goal as a client was to retain my job and she ensured this was the outcome. Ms. O’Connor is very law enforcement friendly and well known in the law enforcement community.
Ms. O’Connor was the first person I ran to when my ex served me with paperwork. I set up my consult and Ms. O’Connor was able to take the time to review my case and gave me hope. Ms. O’Connor is an “Epic” attorney in the courtroom, mainly because of the long hours she spends on trial prep prior to your date in trial. Ms. O’Connor was able to help me stay on track during mediation and lock my ex into many things such as “Shared Parental Decision Making”, and equal overnight time sharing.
Ms. O’Connor is a father friendly attorney, so if any guys are looking for an aggressive attorney I highly recommend her. Nothing brings me more satisfaction then seeing the look on my ex’s face when knowing she did not get the upper hand in court. A lot of people may only have one chance to fight for their kids; if you need an attorney then Ms. O’Connor is for you. Reading some of the other postings on this AVVO about Ms. O’Connor, I can’t help but crack as smile as I read the posting “Great as my ex’s attorney.”
A lot of attorneys can put up a good show by blasting off motions after motions. It gives me great satisfaction when I see Ms. O’Connor challenge any incoming frivolous motions presented by my ex’s opposing counsel. During my trial, Ms. O’Connor had the opportunity to proffer against my opposing counsel. I was completely blown away, all the hours she put into my trial preparation paid off. She was able to speak exactly how she pleads on her paperwork. She does not use cookie cutter pleadings most attorneys use during the initial filing phase. I mention this because the wording Ms. O’Connor uses is verbatim from the pleadings she files with the court. In closing, ask yourself if you want a courtroom warrior such as Ms. O’Connor who will spend the time reviewing several hours before mediation or preparing days before a trial or hearing; or do you want an attorney who will meet with you 30 minutes before your trial/hearing/mediation date to discuss what your hoping to achieve?
One can compare a child paternity or divorce case similar to an all out war. With that being said, I would definitely want Ms. O’Connor on my side and ready for battle. As a single dad, I am so thankful for the fight Ms. O’Connor put up for me and my children every day. I owe so much to her because I would absolutely DREAD if my ex had an attorney like Ms. O’Connor in her corner. If you think you have a complex case, I suggest you set up a consult with Ms. O’Connor. Upon walking out of her conference room, she will give you hope and confidence.

Let's face it, you are in need of an attorney because you are at your possible worst moment in life. I was; I had the occasion to meet Kerry O'Connor and her legal team as I was referred to her through a co-worker. At the time I was in a great career field and it appeared very promising due to my upstanding record, glowing annual supervisory reviews and hard work ethic. Not the case; untruthful allegations were set against me. Kerry was very familiar with the employer and their unjust ways and impractical solutions. Kerry was very informative and straight forward giving me a base line for what was expected and what to expect. Her diligent services uncovered numerous amounts of inconsistent information which ultimately resulted in my name being cleared and gaining my dignity and sanity back. As I worked with Kerry through my case she continued to generate progress through all of the "road blocks" my employer continued to set up. If you are looking for an attorney that will give it to you straight and not fill your mind with the wrong information and work hard for you; then your choice should be the obvious. Kerry O'Connor and her legal team are in this for the win and will do everything in their power to make you feel more at ease through the whole process. In other words, if you are in a time of legal need and need to get back on track; Kerry O'Connor is the attorney for you.
Thank you Kerry!

Kerry is my hero. She went above and beyond in representing me and protecting me and my children. It is easy to get bullied and intimidated by the system. You want someone on your side who knows the system and is willing to fight it. Kerry is that person.
