Background & Professional Associations
Prior to attending law school, Mr. O’Connell attended the University
of Maryland and majored in biology, graduating with a Bachelor of Science
degree, and was a research fellow at the National Institutes of Health
in the National Cancer Institute.
He served in The United States Army with the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne)
before being honorably discharged and heading off to law school at the
University of Maryland. Attorney O’Connell is also a graduate of
the prestigious Trial Lawyers College run by Gerry Spence, and currently
sits of the Board of Directors of the Alumni Association.
He is a proud member of the following professional organizations:
- The Colorado Bar Association
- The Colorado Trial Lawyers Association (member, Auto Litigation and Premises
- The American Association for Justice
- The Denver Bar Association
- The National Institute for Trial Advocacy
Mr. O'Connell choose to practice law to have an opportunity to make
a positive difference—no matter how great or small—in people's
lives. He realizes that sometimes the "deck is stacked against"
his clients, especially when locked in a dispute with insurance companies.
That is why his firm is dedicated to fighting for clients when they find
themselves against such odds and holding those in the wrong accountable.
His commitment to personal injury law in particular was forged through
personal experience. In high school, Mr. O'Connell had a friend who
was badly injured when a driver ran a red light and collided with his
car. Mr. O'Connell was later visiting his injured friend at his home
when insurance agents arrived and offered compensation to the friend:
$500. The minimal offering made Mr. O'Connell question our insurance
system and sparked an interest in the legal effort to make sure that accident
victims receive the relief they deserve.
Michael O’Connell is licensed to practice in all jurisdictions in
the State of Colorado, as well as in the Federal District Court for Colorado,
Federal Bankruptcy Court of Colorado, and the Federal Court of Appeals,
He frequently lectures physicians, law students, and healthcare practitioners
on the finer points of personal injury law, claims, and litigation. He
mentors law students at the University of Denver School of Law, the Colorado
Young Lawyers Division, and the Colorado Chiropractic Association, while
frequently posting articles and comments of the firm’s blog and website.
