O'Connor & Battle LLP

O'Connor & Battle was formed to provide personalized legal service of the highest quality in an efficient and economic manner. We believe that this type of service can best be provided by skilled attorneys practicing in a smaller “boutique” setting that allows us to tailor our service to our clients’ needs. Each of our Firm’s Principals, Counsel and Associates offers a wealth of experience and knowledge with negotiations, administrative proceedings, state, federal and appellate courts across a diverse range of subject areas.

O'Connor & Battle recognizes that our clients must have as much information as possible in order to make informed decisions about their goals and strategies and we keep our clients involved throughout the legal process. We have handled a number of matters in which clients have decided that economics plays no role and for a variety of reasons a matter must be litigated to conclusion. In other matters, clients have decided that despite a very strong position on the merits, the most financially sound position is to find the fastest route to resolving their dispute. Whatever the case, whatever the strategy, we put our clients’ best interests above all else.

O'Connor & Battle is a Certified Minority Owned business.
