Attorney Daniel J. O'Connell and Attorney Sarah A. Ornelas Again Included in the New England Super Lawyers Lists
- posted: Oct. 18, 2016
Attorney Daniel J. O’Connell was named to the 2016 New England Super Lawyers list in the area of Plaintiff Employment Litigation, and Attorney Sarah A. Ornelas has been named to the 2016 New England Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars list in the area of Plaintiff Employment Litigation. This is the second consecutive year that both Attorney O’Connell and Attorney Ornelas have been included on these lists.
According to the webpage for Super Lawyers, it is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Super Lawyers selections are made annually using a patented, multi-phase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive, and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys. Only 5% of lawyers in each state are selected to the Super Lawyers list annually. Only 2.5% of Massachusetts attorneys are named a Rising Star. A candidate for the Rising Star distinction goes through the same vigorous reviewing process as the Super Lawyers selection and also must be either under forty years old or practicing for less than 10 years.
Attorney O’Connell and Attorney Ornelas both focus their practice in the areas of employment based discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation and wrongful termination.

In doing extensive research to seek a qualified Attorney to represent my concerns in a work related issue regarding discrimination, I found Attorney OConnell. Attorney OConnell represented me with the highest regard for my concerns and emotional stress. Throughout my case he kept me informed and never made me feel like my case was lost in a pile of paperwork. His extraordinary knowledge of the laws regarding discrimination and resolution toward a settlement was beyond my expectations. I highly recommend Attorney Dan OConnell for representation that is totally professional and caring enough to "Protect My Rights as a Women, as an Individual and a client." Accolades to Attorney OConnell.
Attorney Connell handled my sexual harassment case all the way to Trial and was able to get a fair settlement when the Jury was deliberating. He was very understanding and sensitive to my needs.
Attorney OConnell was really great in guiding me through my legal case. I strongly endorse him.
very attentive and understanding.
A true professional. He was wonderful,and helped my son out of a serious criminal issue.
