Focusing on Your Objectives

O’Connor and Associates, a boutique law firm based in San Francisco, offers superior legal services, as well as highly regarded expert witness and consultancy services.
Our attorneys have extensive experience representing individuals, partnerships, and companies of all sizes, in transactions and litigation, whether as plaintiffs or defendants, in federal and state court, before arbitration tribunals, and in other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) forums.

At O’Connor and Associates, we aggressively and innovatively represent our clients in an efficient and cost-effective way. We are also keenly aware that litigation is a means, not an end, to achieve our clients’ legal, business, or personal objectives.
