Meet the Team

Patrick O'Hara


Years of experience have taught Mr. O'hara that personal injury is just that — personal. Every case is different, and every person who gets hurt has different needs. That’s why he works on a case-by-case basis. Mr. O'hara offers a personalized approach to every client, but the overarching goal remains the same: to seek justice on behalf of his clients.

What Makes Us Different?

We allow honesty and transparency to guide our communication.

We’ve been practicing personal injury for years. We know the ins and outs of Texas law, and we’ve taken on more than our share of difficult cases. You can trust in two things: 1) We experience is an asset worth having on your side, and 2) we do what we do because we care about the well-being of our clients.

With those factors in mind, here’s what we ask of you. When you decide to work with us, you heed our advice. Each piece of guidance we offer is based on experience and an invested interest in your health and happiness. We will work hard for you, but we'll also be direct about the good, the bad, and the ugly — even when it’s not what you want to hear. We’ve learned that such transparency upfront means fewer surprises for you down the road.

Because our approach changes on a case-by-case basis, various clients we’ve had over the years see us in different ways. Some clients — for instance, those whose cases we’ve settled outside of court — tend to see us as efficient and knowledgeable. Others — primarily those whose cases we’ve taken to trial — see us as aggressive and difficult to intimidate.

No matter which way our clients have viewed us during their particular case, they’ve also commented on our professionalism and approachability. These, we feel, are non-negotiable traits that trial attorneys must have.

If you haven’t guessed it already, we're not afraid to take a case to trial. In fact, the courtroom is where we feel most at home, and according to several of our former colleagues, the place where we really shine.

Clients tend to want to stay away from the courtroom, and understandably so — trial is associated with complex legal matters and escalated disputes. 

But sometimes it’s actually the best way to resolve a legal issue, and we will always weigh the pros and cons for your particular situation before ever taking your case in that direction.

You can rest assured, though, that if for any reason your case makes it to court, we have the wherewithal to represent you.

Throughout our careers, there have been many occasions in which it was our team on one side of the negotiation room and a full panel of insurance attorneys on the other. But we’ve never allowed such opposition to deter us or derail the case we're presenting.

Regardless of what awaits us — in or out of court —  you can breathe a little easier knowing that you have an experienced and diligent legal team on your side.

As for your opposing counsel, they can rest assured that they’re in for some tough negotiations coming from our side of the table.

Now, we're not saying we are in the habit of flying around the world to represent a client, but there is something to be said about the thorough, efficient method we implement whenever we choose to take on a difficult case.

With every concern a client brings forward, we carefully assess the situation, determine whether we're the right attorneys for the job, explore the options most likely to result in a win, and tell our client directly how we envision their case unfolding. From there, it’s just a matter of putting in the work — something we’ve never been afraid to do. 

If you’re not sure whether your location or type of injury falls within our scope of practice, just call and ask. There’s no harm in exploring your options.

Big or small, your case matters

Ambitious attorneys love taking on larger, more challenging cases as they progress in their careers. We’d like to say that we're no exception, but that’s not entirely true. You see, we’ve sought out big, difficult cases from Day 1 of our careers.

Patrick's first trial, in fact, was a very serious matter in which he represented a client suffering from mesothelioma. Despite the opponent having quite a bit more experience than he had at that point in time, he persevered and won the case for his client. We just can’t help it — standing up for clients in need is what we do, and we do it well.

We Don’t Cut Corners. we pride ourselves on overcoming complex legal obstacles, but we don’t want that to discourage you from calling if your case is on the other end of the spectrum. People facing even the simplest, most straightforward personal injury concerns have the right to work with an experienced attorney who’s looking out for their best interests — and that’s exactly what we provide.

So, whether your insurance company is giving you trouble or you’re looking to sue an internationally renowned drug company, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
