Attorney Referrals

Welcome to The O’Connor Law Firm’s Attorney Referral Program, where collaboration meets excellence in personal injury law. If you’re considering referring a personal injury case, you’ve come to the right place.

Our program is designed to provide attorneys with the confidence that their clients will receive top-notch representation. With a successful track record and experience in all 5 boroughs of New York City, as well as Nassau and Suffolk Counties, we bring a wealth of knowledge to the table.

Is Our Attorney Referral Program Right For You?

In today’s legal environment, the referral of personal injury cases makes good business sense. Our program caters to:

  1. Attorneys Outside Personal Injury: If personal injury isn’t your firm’s focus, we’ve got you covered.
  2. Limited Resources: For attorneys lacking the resources or specialization to handle significant damage and complex litigation cases.
  3. Out-of-State Attorneys: If you’re unable to handle cases in Staten Island and New York City, our referral program bridges the gap.
  4. Joint Partnerships: Attorneys seeking multi-counsel relationships in high-profile or complex litigation cases can benefit from our collaborative approach.

How Can You Benefit from Our Attorney Referral Program?

  1. It’s All We Do: Tackling personal injury cases is our forte. By referring a case to us, you tap into our knowledge, experience, and resources in this niche area of law.
  2. Focus on Your Core Competencies: As a referring attorney, you can concentrate on your primary practice areas while entrusting personal injury matters to us. It’s a win-win—efficiency for you, expertise for your client.
  3. Maximized Compensation: By teaming up with us, you ensure that your client receives the maximum compensation they deserve. Our dedicated approach to each case aims at securing the best possible outcome.
  4. Strengthened Reputation: A successful referral reflects positively on your reputation. Clients appreciate attorneys who prioritize their well-being, even if it means collaborating with other attorneys in the field.
  5. Long-Term Relationship: Building a network of trusted legal professionals is invaluable. Our Attorney Referral Program is a gateway to establishing long-term relationships based on trust, integrity, and shared success.

Our Attorney Referral Process:

  1. Contact Us: Simply reach out to us with the details of the case and your referral.
  2. Case Evaluation: We promptly assess the case’s merits, keeping you informed at every step.
  3. Agreement: A clear and fair agreement is established, outlining the terms of our collaboration.
  4. Client Care: Your client is treated with the utmost respect and professionalism throughout the process.
  5. Updates: We provide regular updates on the case’s progress, ensuring transparency and client satisfaction.

We are committed to making the referral experience a smooth, positive, and beneficial one for everyone involved.

When we accept your referral, we enter into a written agreement with both you and the client to establish the distribution of fees. This ensures that all parties are informed and protected.

When it comes to your degree of involvement in a case you refer, we are extremely flexible. We are open to most any arrangement and will be happy to accommodate your desired level of involvement.  We understand that some referring attorneys like to be very hands-on with a case, while others may only want to be involved in certain areas in the process, while others prefer to have us lead and manage the case through trial. 

We feel strongly that each attorney should choose what they feel comfortable with, and that we can together shape the agreement in a variety of different ways.

If you would like to discuss the details of a potential case referral or want to learn more about our referral process or fee structure, call The O’Connor Law Firm today at 718-948-3500.

Attorney Reviews

We are proud and honored that many law firms and attorneys have entrusted us with their significant cases over the years and continue to do so. We make the same promise to our referring attorneys that we make to our clients – that we will fight hard and spare no expense or resource necessary to maximize the value of each and every case we handle.

I have referred dozens of cases to Brian over the past fifteen years. He is knowledgeable, diligent and determined in obtaining substantial financial recoveries for his clients. He has worked on every type of personal injury case – from simple matters to the most complex litigation – recovering millions of dollars in judgments for his clients. There is no lawyer that I would recommend before Brian when it comes to obtaining the best result for a personal injury client. 


Brian J. O’Connor is an excellent attorney. I have sought his opinion on numerous personal injury matters of my own. His advice is always excellent, thorough and well thought out. I have referred some of my own cases to him and have been very satisfied with the results.


I have personally known Mr. O’Connor for many years. He is a highly experienced and knowledgeable personal injury trial attorney. As my firm doesn’t practice in this area, he handles personal injury matters for our clients. I endorse Brian J. O’Connor without hesitation.


I referred several clients to Mr. O’Connor and without exception, they all reported that they were treated with courtesy and respect.


Brian O’ Connor is an excellent litigator. He is a fighter and my go-to attorney when I have a conflict and cannot represent a client. He is insightful and direct. It is always a pleasure working with him, as well as profitable.


Brian is a lawyer with a ton of experience, having started out representing cities and insurance companies. I’d highly recommend that you give him a call if you have been injured in New York. He will tell it to you straight.  


I began my career as a young attorney in one of the busiest offices in the New York City Law Dept. Brian O’Connor was my mentor and taught me everything I needed to know. I have kept in close touch with Brian and often reach out to him for his input on complicated matters. He is a superb litigator and excellent trial attorney. I would recommend him to anyone who wants the rare combination of an aggressive, honest and effective personal injury litigator.


Mr. O’Connor is a skilled practitioner with a keen intellect balanced by a compassionate personality. 


Brian is a talented and hardworking trial attorney. I have worked with him in the past and have always been impressed.


Excellent attorney. I’ve consulted him on a few matters and his advice has always been outstanding. He is thorough and can explain complicated concepts in very clear simple language. His counsel has been priceless. I would give Mr. O’Connor my absolute highest recommendation to anyone seeking a personal injury attorney. 


I worked with Brian for 3 years while we both worked for the City of New York — Brooklyn Tort Division — defending the City against personal injury claims. He is a top notch civil litigator and he continues to be a resource for me on personal injury matters. He also happens to be an outstanding human being.
