Firm Details

Big Firm Results without the Big Firm Cost
O'Connor, O'Connor, Bresee & First was founded by four attorneys who believed that good lawyers do more than handle the legal aspects of a case; they listen and respond to their clients' needs, both personally and professionally. That philosophy continues to drive our attorneys and is the cornerstone of our firm today.

We are committed to providing an early, straightforward evaluation of our clients' legal problems. It is our philosophy to save our clients' money not to spend it needlessly on costs and attorneys' fees. If you are confronted with a case that should be settled, we will tell you that before you spend thousands of dollars on defense costs. On the other hand, if a case should be tried, we are experienced trial lawyers who know how to win. We think that we can achieve the best result for our clients in any case by being ready, willing and able to defend their interests in court.
