Kevin K. O’Brien
Kevin O’Brien has always been passionate about criminal defense and representing the underdog. It is his strong belief that criminal defense lawyers have to be better and more skilled than their prosecutor adversaries. While his clients will not be able to match the resources that the government has at its disposal to prosecute the case, he believes that his passion, skill, and dedication to justice give his clients the best shot at defending their case. When Kevin takes on a case for a client, he does not believe in excuses – he adopts the clients’ goals and works tirelessly to accomplish them.
Andrew’s primary focus is on achieving the best possible result for his clients. He recognizes that matrimonial, family law and personal injury matters are resolved in one of two ways: (1) settlement or (2) a decision after trial. Andrew advises his clients of the terms and obligations of all settlement proposals/agreement and also advises clients on their likelihood of success after trial. You will receive honest and upfront expectations from Andrew if you choose to retain O’Brien Wood to represent you.
