Experienced & Dedicated&
O’Connor & O’Connor, LLC is an Orlando-based civil litigation firm with a broad practice advocating in a range of complex disputes throughout Florida. Unlike many of our competitors, our legal “lineage” dates back to the 1920s — in fact, some of our clients have partnered with us and our predecessors for nearly a century. We believe that long-term partnerships illustrate our commitment to clients and their best interests. We are loyal to our clients, and in turn, our clients have chosen to continue working with us over many decades, no matter how much the market changes.
Our services include personal injury and construction litigation, as well as claims in the areas of commercial litigation, government and civil rights litigation, insurance matters, and professional liability. We represent a variety of clients, from individuals to large institutions, through trial and appeal.
WHAT WE DO
Our team of experienced attorneys help clients resolve a wide array of legal problems in the following areas:
Following trial or summary judgment, it is common for one or sometimes both sides to be unhappy with the results. Our appellate department has extensive experience navigating the complexities of review at the next level, whether it involves a case tried by our firm or outside counsel.
Civil Rights Litigation
We defend the government (i.e., local police departments and state agencies, among other stakeholders) in a range of civil rights disputes, such as police brutality lawsuits and prison-related lawsuits. We do not represent claimants in civil rights disputes opposed to government interests.
Our attorneys represent both plaintiffs and defendants in complex commercial litigation, such as contract disputes, business disputes, shareholder derivative cases, intellectual property disputes, and debt collection matters.
Construction defect claims comprise a significant portion of our construction litigation practice, and we also handle lien claims, delay claims, and various other types of construction-related claims.
We handle government-specific issues and general litigation defense for city, county, and state entities, including police departments and other agencies, in disputes that involve civil rights, employment issues, and personal injury claims, among others.
At O’Connor & O’Connor, LLC, we are retained by insurance companies to represent their insureds or the carrier directly. We are frequently retained on general liability and homeowners’ policies, though we handle all types of insurance claims, including life and asset insurance.
Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
We primarily handle defense work in personal injury and wrongful death matters, but we are not limited to defense — in fact, we accept plaintiff’s-side representation, and the breadth and depth of our experiences have given us the tools necessary to effectively advocate for either side.
We regularly handle cases involving product-related injuries, and have been involved in complex product defect litigation — in Florida and at the national level — in cases turning on sophisticated engineering issues. At O’Connor & O’Connor, LLC, we coordinate with trusted experts to provide the insight and testimony we need to successfully navigate such disputes.
We handle administrative proceedings (including license challenges) as well as civil litigation in a range of professional liability disputes, such as medical malpractice, legal malpractice, and other litigation based on the violation of a professional standard of care.
We routinely represent both commercial carriers (i.e. trucking companies, airlines, bus companies, etc.) and injured plaintiffs in specialized personal injury litigation centered around a transportation dispute. These cases may involve unique issues, such as common carrier liability, and as such require careful consideration when attempting to construct a favorable litigation strategy.
