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.
