Attorney Daniel J. O’Connell Obtains a Default Judgment in Favor of his Client in a Sexual Harassment Case
- posted: Apr. 19, 2016
On April 1, 2016, Attorney Daniel J. O’Connell obtained a Default Judgment in favor of his client (a Plaintiff) in the Hampden County Superior Court.
The Plaintiff was a victim of ongoing sexual harassment during her employment with her prior employers (Primary Care Associates, Inc. and Geriatric Medical Associates). She brought a lawsuit in the Hampden County Superior Court during 2014. After ongoing and strenuous litigation, the Plaintiff obtained a default against her prior employer earlier this year. After a hearing to determine the Plaintiff’s damages, the Honorable Judge Edward J. McDonough, Jr. felt that the Plaintiff suffered damages and awarded her damages to compensate her. Judge McDonough also ruled that the Plaintiff was entitled to reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses pursuant to M.G.L. c. 151B.
Great job, Attorney O’Connell!

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.
