Looking for an attorney who won't treat you like just another case? Look no further.

Why O'Connor Cadiz Law

At the cornerstone of our law firm is the belief that our clients should understand what is going on in their own case, as knowledge brings comfort and a sense of control over what can otherwise be an overwhelming experience. We know that no one looks forward to having to hire a lawyer, but things happen in life that sometimes require you to be legally ready for what is being thrown your way. We hope that you will find that working with a lawyer can actually be easy, and we want for you to be happy despite stressful circumstances that may have brought you here. Forget the negative stereotypes that come with hiring a lawyer, we like to do things differently because we know that your legal case isn't about us- its about you. Choosing to work with only a handful of case types and a limited number of clients at any given time, we have deliberately designed a law firm in which the attorney gets to know her clients very well and has the time to make sure that their individual needs are met. This is not a big law mill where we churn cases and don't bother to get to know our clients. We are also very active in the Hispanic community- be sure to check out our Spanish site if that is relevant to you. 

What kinds of cases do you handle? 

While developing those personal relationships in the community, we help you become legally ready- primarily in the areas of personal injury and denials of disability insurance benefits. We also actively  handle real estate closings and mediations. This website, however,  is primarily dedicated to personal injury and disability cases.  We welcome you to reach out and let us know how we may be of service. If you have a problem that we cannot help with, every effort will be made to put you in the hands of another reputable law firm that we trust. Be sure to also ask about how you can join our VIP program
